The last batch of downloads for 2011 brings with it some more goodies, including a gravity-flipping eShop game and a certain game starring a guy with a bionic arm.

3DS Download Software

VVVVVV (Nicalis, $7.99) — The well-known indie platformer has made its way to the eShop. It seems to be identical to the PC release, including a handful of user-made levels that were added to that version a while ago. We'll take a good look at it in our review very soon indeed.

3DS Virtual Console

Bionic Commando (Game Boy, Capcom, $3.99) — We didn't get Rad Spencer's NES outing on the Wii Virtual Console (not yet, at least) but this Game Boy version is fairly similar and for the most part only features some changes to the story. We'll have a review soon.


Cake Ninja (Cypronia, 500pts) — Not at all a copy of the iPhone game Fruit Ninja. Be sure to read our Cake Ninja review for the full verdict.

Slingo Supreme (Magellan Interactive, 800pts) — Earlier this year there was Slingo Quest, now there's Slingo Supreme. Our upcoming review will tell you whether this one actually is the supreme one or not.


Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Big Ben Burglary (The Learning Company, 600pts) — Another game starring the world's most educational thief, we're assuming this will be quite similar to the previous release, but we'll see in our review soon.

Do you think this update is a good end to the year?
