Pullblox (Nintendo, €6/£5.40) — This push-and-pull puzzler comes from Fire Emblem and Advance Wars team Intelligent Systems, with the ability to create and share your own puzzles with other users. Our upcoming review will let you know if it's got what it takes.

3DS Virtual Console

Blaster Master: Enemy Below (Game Boy Color, Sunsoft, €5/£4.50) — Just a few weeks after Japan saw this release, we now have it in Europe. It may not be the most remarkable game in the Game Boy Color's library, but as it doubles the GBC library on 3DS we're not complaining. Full review on the way soon.


Bloons TD 3 (Digital Goldfish, 500pts) — Simply called Bloons TD in North America, this game of intelligent balloons isn't bad but isn't likely to compete for your time or money this week. Check out our Bloons TD review for the full lowdown.

Christmas Wonderland (Microvalue, 800pts) — A hidden object game with a distinctly seasonal flavour, we'll have our full appraisal of Christmas Wonderland in the next week.

Crazy Hamster (Gamelion Studios, 200pts) — A reflex-testing action game starring a hamster — of course — you could do considerably worse for your 200 Points. Check out our Crazy Hamster review to find out why.


Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder (iFun4All, 500pts) — The self-proclaimed "worst game ever" comes to a service arguably crowded with more competitors than any other. Can it topple Incoming!, Play With Birds, Space Trek, WarMen Tactics and Girlfriends Forever: Magic Skate to claim its title? We'll find out in our upcoming review.
