Tappingo is the latest title from popular portable download developer Hugo Smits (aka Goodbye Galaxy Games); his titles on DSiWare consistently delivered enjoyable, clever mechanics. The developer's 3DS eShop début looks promising, as it produces a new twist on ideas that may have some familiarity for Picross fans.

The developer has now been in touch to confirm a target release window and pricing for this puzzle game — it should arrive in late February and will cost $2.99 / €2.99. Smits states that it'll include "over 100 puzzles that will easily keep you playing for over 6 hours".

We also have a couple of new screens to show, featuring retro Nintendo controllers.


The previously released clip of this game is below. Will you be looking out for this towards the end of February?
