There's a distinctly domestic theme to this week's Nintendo Download in North America, with a house, some garden gnomes and a spot of lawn mowing all featuring in one way or another. Let's get on our aprons and see what's available to take home this week.


Gnomz (QubicGames, 1000pts) — A single-screen four-player action beat 'em up is probably the best way to describe Gnomz, unless you've played Super Mario War, in which case it's quite like that. You can read our Gnomz First Impressions for an overview before our review lands in the near future.

3DS Virtual Console

Balloon Kid (Game Boy, Nintendo, $2.99) - This Game Boy title was a sequel to NES release Balloon Fight, with the objective of flying through eight stages collecting balloons. Our review will let you know whether it's worth a flight.


House, M.D. - Episode 4: Crashed (Legacy Interactive, 800pts) — Another downloadable instalment in the life of Dr. Gregory House, you probably know what to expect by now. Review coming soon.

1950s Lawn Mower Kids (Zordix AB, 500pts) — Another strange combination of time and action for Zordix following Valet Parking 1989, you can see how this one turned out in our 1950s Lawn Mower Kids review.

Cut the Rope (Chillingo, 500pts) — Not actually announced in the press release, Chillingo's candy-feeding puzzler arrived on the DSi Shop steps too. Read through our Cut the Rope review for more.

Nintendo Video

The Legend of Zelda Main Theme Medley — This rather lovely video features a full performance of a Zelda main theme medley arrangement, all in nice 3D. This is one of the tracks that will feature on the limited edition CD accompanying initial production runs of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
