Count those Os
Let's play a game. You're Cinemax, a DSiWare developer, and you're making a game about table football. Your past games have gone for the direct route when it comes to names: 90's Pool, Rytmik and, of course, Calculator. You're working on a table football game — what do you call it? If you went for Table Football 2012, sorry — not...

In North America, that is
Chip music studio Rytmik Retrobits is set to reach North America in two weeks, Cinemax tells us. Out on 22nd December for 800 Nintendo Points, the latest entry in the Rytmik series uses 16-bit-styled samples to let you create your own tunes that evoke memories of gaming days of yore. We rather liked it, as you'll glean from our Rytmik Retrobits review.
Cinemax is best known for its Rytmik games but it's got something entirely different lined up for Europe in the next few weeks.

Unlike previous instalments Hip Hop King: Rytmik Edition and Rytmik: Rock Edition, the game isn't..

SNK's revered Metal Slug series has already made one stop on DS in the form of Metal Slug 7, but there's been no downloadable outing for Marco and crew.

The run-and-gun title from developer Mana Software was released in..

800 Points for Rytmik 3
Rytmik covered dance, Rytmik: Rock Edition was – you guessed it – based on rock, and the third entry in the series has a similarly self-explanatory name.
