PN Review: Color Zen (3DS eShop)

June 8, 2014 |

Color Zen was a surprise on Wii U – a great puzzle game, with cool graphics, an awesome soundtrack, and priced right at only $3.99.  This 3DS version is nearly just as good (it’s the same game) so the bulk … Read More

PN Review: I’ve Got to Run

June 4, 2014 |
