Review: PIX3D (3DS eShop)

PIX3D (3DS eShop)

Pix 'n' mix

Block puzzlers: the genre that keeps on giving. Just when you think all the possibilities of the humble square have been exhausted, along comes another game to prove just how wrong you are. PIX3D combines cuboids and pixel art in a retro love-in that's fun, despite a general lack of challenge in its main mode. PIX3D's concept is both...

Review: Aero Porter (3DS eShop)

Aero Porter (3DS eShop)

A game with a lot of baggage

We at Nintendo Life absolutely loved Airport Mania: First Flight. Its appeal was rooted largely in the simplicity of its tasks, and the larger effects they all seemed to have. Airport Mania took the entire, massive scope of airport management and narrowed it to a tiny focus: directing and maintaining planes. There was,...

Review: 3D MahJongg (3DS eShop)

3D MahJongg (3DS eShop)

The ancient art of matchmaking

MahJongg is one of the most classic games on the planet, dating back — by some estimations — to around 500 BC. The fact that it's still popular today says a lot about its addictiveness, and its myriad variants range from social group games — think poker — to solitary, puzzle-like experiences. It's the latter...

Ninja Gaiden (3DS eShop / NES)

Frustratingly fun

Gamers nowadays might be more familiar with the rebooted series, but now you've got yet another chance to experience the original NES Ninja Gaiden, the game that started it all.

Fallblox (3DS eShop)

Drop 'em like they're blox

Meet Fallblox – a game so clever that its very title could be a brand new synonym for “mindboggling”.
