It’s not a game, it’s a piece of software meant to be used as a tool by eye doctors.

the amount of shovelware nintendo lets slip by is already crazy, but this? this is the pinnacle of absurdity that they've let on the eshop.

@Galarian_Lassie Why release that on the eShop though? Why not on a computer? What eye doctor uses a Nintendo 3DS?

Ever since the new 3ds made it easier to release poorly optimized games, the 3ds eshop has been plagued with low effort titles. Not sure if that’s the case here, is this exclusive to the new systems?

Anyway, this likely is just a simple case of “it only takes one fool to make us 100 dollars richer”. By making it a medical “tool”, you can pretend it has a value.

@JadeGames Because the software utilizes the glasses free screen of the 3DS + the eye tracking camera. I don't think there's another device out there that has that functionality.

@link3710 Still though, i don't see any doctor using this. In fact, this thing only has one review.

@JadeGames Believe it or not the equivalent tools usually cost more than buying a New 3DS and this game. So it’s a cheaper alternative, especially if the entity in question already happens to have a New 3DS at hand.

@Galarian_Lassie I know. I just find it weird and feel like nobody would be using it because i don't see an eye doctor bringing (or even owning) a 3DS.
It'd be interesting, and odd to see someone using this, but idk. Seems unlikely.

@JadeGames
I agree, it looks nuts. Kind of amusing calling it an awful game if any kid was gifted it as a game, disappointment would be an amusing understatement.

I'd like to see a game review, "shallow game mechanic", "not fun", "no replay value".

Japan is so tech friendly, I'm not that shocked to see it. Japan is known for innovating, and sometimes it may be something weird but very useful. It's probably helping people somewhere, maybe areas with less medical infrastructure. And if it benefits people around the world, why not put it in every region's eshop.

Cool post.

@Galarian_Lassie Your answer is spot on, the creator even said they want eye clinics to use it and it replaces tools that costs $500 each. Just found out from browsing their forum (found via the official site link found on Nintendo's page).

Also, this is kind of reminding me of that tool the Game Boy Advance had for diabetes at one point too. Learned about that one awhile back and never knew it existed.

For $100, you'd expect them to at least hire a graphical designer. It looks hideous.

I mean, it's a doctor's tool, it doesn't have to look good.

Agreed. You'd be surprised how much medical software, while fully functional, isn't exactly pretty. By modern standards anyway.

Medical software isn’t pretty, but it isn’t quite this ugly usually.

This thing is not just plain, it’s like, “graphic design is my passion” meme level. It simply does not look professional.

I wonder offhand how many eye care offices HAVE caved to frugalism and used this.

@StableInvadeel If you want to put your eyes through some torture the next time you're bored, I recommend checking out Web Pages That Suck. The site hasn't been updated since 2014-15 since I last checked, but there are some REAL winners featured on there.
