PN Review: Rock Zombie (Wii U eShop)

December 18, 2014 |

I am going to start by saying that I love zombie games. Well, I love most zombie games and Rock Zombie was not one of them.  I went into this game hoping for a pretty great zombie slaying experience and … Read More

PN Review: GetClose: A game for RIVALS

December 16, 2014 |

GetClose is one of those titles easier understood with a controller in hand, or in this case hands.  A multiplayer only release, GetClose requires two people to share the same GamePad.  This makes for some “interesting” competition to say the … Read More

PN Review: Xeodrifter

December 15, 2014 |

I enjoy classic games from the NES and SNES era so much that I often times find myself playing titles from these systems on my 3DS Virtual Console more than many of today’s games. And I get excited when I … Read More

PN Review: Talking Phrasebook – 7 Languages

December 15, 2014 |

This new translation app isn’t overly comprehensive, but rather is designed to offer language assistance in a variety of applicable situations.  Talking Phrasebook functions exactly as advertised, meaning it’s worth a look for those in the market for a program … Read More

PN Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby

December 14, 2014 |

When Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were first released for the Game Boy Advance, it was a huge leap for the Pokémon series. Fans of the original 8-bit games got the chance to explore a new region fleshed out … Read More

PN Review: My First Songs (3DS eShop)

December 13, 2014 |

This isn’t a port of the karaoke game that appeared last spring on Wii U, although it’d be easy to confuse the two at first glance.  With the same title, song list, animations, and so forth, uninformed parents might not … Read More

PN Review: Shiny the Firefly

December 12, 2014 |

Shiny the Firefly tasks you with leading a myriad of lost babies safely to each level exit.  Along the way you’ll need to solve some puzzles for successful navigation, as well as battle (and hide!) from enemies.  The game grabbed … Read More

So much like Sonic Lost World, the newest Sonic title also comes with a 3DS counterpart. … Read More

PN Review: Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric

December 9, 2014 |

Ever since Sonic’s debut into the 3D World, its always been “hit or miss” when it comes to the overall success of the blue blur. We’ve seen the good, the bad and the beyond ugly. When I first saw the … Read More

PN Review: Thomas Was Alone

December 5, 2014 |

Thomas Was Alone is a puzzle platformer that’s as much an experience as it is a game.  With so many elements coming together in such splendid ways, it is greater than the sum of its parts.  The positive impression it’s … Read More

PN Review: The Swapper (Wii U)

December 3, 2014 |

The Swapper is a very interesting game: it immediately sets a bleak mood, yet is very enjoyable to play.  It’s a platformer/puzzle game, set in a dark sci-fi world, where you play as the lone survivor on a damaged space station, … Read More

PN Review: Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom

December 2, 2014 |

 “Soooooo what time is it?  Top-down Adventure Time!”

A few months back I reviewed a game called Ittle Dew, and discovered that Zelda clones can be good fun.  Which is what drew me to this new Adventure Time game, despite … Read More

PN Review: Heptrix

December 1, 2014 |

Heptrix is a falling block puzzler in the Tetris mold.  There’s a bit of a 7 theme with it – each block consists of 7 pieces, every fallen piece is worth 7 points, you clear 7 lines to advance a … Read More

PN Review: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

December 1, 2014 | 6

Nintendo hits the nail on the head once again with their newest release for Wii U, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.  What started out as a small smattering of mini-games in a flagship Mario title for Wii U, is now … Read More

Another art application for the Nintendo 3DS, this one has a rather interesting title. ‘Scary Girl Illustration Kit’ by Square One Games Inc. is a spin off of an adventure platform game called ‘Scary Girl’ that was released in 2012 for multiple systems. This vector drawing program uses tools … Read More

PN Review: Battleminer

November 30, 2014 | 3

I’ve a confession to make – I’m one of those who’ve never played Minecraft.  We do exist, at least according to my very informal Twitter poll.  So apologies to those wanting many comparisons, as I’m mainly going off videos.  On … Read More

PN Review: Snake Den

November 25, 2014 |

Use cunning, quick reflexes, and sheer luck to grow a tail to brag about.

Playing Snake Den evokes some nostalgia – Surround on the 2600, light cycling in Tron, gaming on my first cell phone, etc.  Nearly everything about this … Read More
