Most kids have gone back to school, so perhaps that's why this week's Nintendo Download is so slim, to minimise distractions from the very serious studying going on. Or there's simply nothing good to release this week and any proximity to children returning to full-time education is merely coincidental. Whichever it is, here's your two to choose from this week.


3D Pixel Racing (Microforum, 500pts) — We had high hopes for this 3D racing game but in the end it didn't quite make it to a podium finish, let down mostly by its poor controls. Check out our 3D Pixel Racing review to help you decide whether to spend your points or not.


Anonymous Notes Chapter 1 — From the Abyss (Sonic Powered Co., 200pts) — A mediocre slice of hack-and-slash RPG grinding, there's a little here to enjoy but not a lot. Our Anonymous Notes Chapter 1 — From the Abyss review explains all.

Will you be picking up either of these two this week?
