PN Review – 99Moves

January 27, 2015 |

Challenge on a budget

I can always appreciate a game that can do much with only a handful of assets; 1001 Spikes being a prime example. While 99Moves does not succeed on the same level, I can appreciate what developer … Read More

PN Review: Midnight

January 27, 2015 |

If you like physic based puzzlers, chances are you’ll enjoy Midnight.  The latest release from Petite Games, Midnight is a golf-like title that has you guiding a small cube safely to an exit.  It’s a smaller game – there are … Read More

PN Review: Citizens of Earth (Wii U)

January 24, 2015 | 2

If Earthbound never released on the Virtual Console, Citizens of Earth would be the closest approximation to that experience. Eden Industries’ title on the Wii U and 3DS is full of funny dialogue, clever combat mechanics, and a old-school open-world … Read More

PN Review: Quell: Memento

January 23, 2015 |

If you enjoyed Quell: Reflect (and I certainly did) you’ll enjoy Quell: Memento.  This puzzle game sticks with what works for the most part, while adding a few welcomed touches.  It’s a fun eShop download that’s easy to lose time with.

Your objectives … Read More

PN Review: Citizens of Earth (3DS)

January 21, 2015 | 3

There are few things in life as difficult or confusing as politics. Anybody can try to better his or her government, sure, but what about looking good while doing it? How do you make your opponents look like incompetent jerks … Read More

PN Review: 3D After Burner II

January 21, 2015 |

The SEGA 3D Classics are back!  The rest of the world can finally start enjoying what Japanese gamers have had access to for more than a year, and After Burner is leading off this second wave.  Part II is a … Read More

PN Review: uWordsmith

January 20, 2015 |

Word games can be good fun and uWordsmith is no exception, although the fun will likely be short-lived.  With three different modes, multiplayer, and stars for replayability, this game has a decent amount of content for its price, but a … Read More

PN Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

January 19, 2015 |

After over a decade of tiles, most probably know what to expect out of the Ace Attorney games.  They’re quasi legal visual novels, with point and click investigations, and heavy dialogue trials.  This trilogy conveniently bundles the original GBA/DS entries, … Read More

PN Review: Painting Workshop (3DS Eshop)

January 19, 2015 |

Every time a drawing game is released on the 3DS I expect it to be just the same as the last. All of them different in their own ways, but none of them having every tool you need in one place. … Read More

PN Review: Maze

January 16, 2015 |

Maze is a first person collectathon style game built around a simple fantasy plot.  It originally had a science fiction theme which I prefer, but thankfully it’s not a story driven game by any means.  The groundwork laid is still … Read More

PN Review: Toon Tanks (WiiU eshop)

January 14, 2015 | 2

Toon Tanks is a new arcade style shooter from Petite Games, available on the WiiU eshop. This fun fast paced game is all about blowing up your enemy before being blown up yourself. Toon Tanks starts up easy then slowly cranks up the volume, serving … Read More

PN Review: TOSS N GO

January 9, 2015 |

TOSS N GO was released the same day as Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion.  This RCMADIAX collaboration with Leuvsion got the bulk of Pure Nintendo’s attention, and so TOSS N GO fell a bit by the wayside.  It is a … Read More

PN Review: Chariot (Wii U)

January 9, 2015 | 1

Chariot is a new 2D platformer built around a unique concept.  Instead of running and jumping wildly through levels stomping enemies like a Mario or Donkey Kong Country game, players will instead be hauling around a large funeral chariot … Read More

PN Review: Cake Ninja 3

January 7, 2015 |

Like the name suggests, Cake Ninja 3 is the third installment of the pastry slashing series developed by Cypronia for the Wii U. Using either the touch screen on the game pad or the Wii remote, players guide their ninja’s … Read More

PN Review: League of Heroes

January 6, 2015 |

I need to start this review with a disclaimer – If you don’t like repetitive titles, you won’t like League of Heroes.  Having said that, this little game has pleasantly surprised me.  The story leaves you to your own devices, … Read More

PN Review: Mario Pinball Land (Wii U Virtual Console)

January 6, 2015 |

Nintendo released a few quality Mario led GBA ports in the fourth quarter of 2014, including Super Mario Advance and Mario Kart: Super Circuit.  Unfortunately Mario Pinball Land (Super Mario Ball) cannot measure up to them.  It’s a curious attempt … Read More

PN Review: Christmas Wonderland 4 (3DS eShop)

January 2, 2015 |

Merry Chris…. Oh right, it’s January now. Well, try to rewind with me a bit and muster up whatever holiday cheer you have left because for this review we’re taking a trip to a little place called Christmas Wonderland (4). … Read More

PN Review: PUZZLEBOX setup

December 31, 2014 |

PUZZLEBOX setup is a curiously named new eShop release, with a unique hook.  To play this title, you hold your 3DS upside down!  Using your stylus to select from colored columns (which are now on the top screen) tiles will … Read More
