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.

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: 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: PUZZLEBOX setup

December 29, 2014 |

Welcome to Fairune, where illusion is reality.

Fairune is an action RPG with a decidedly retro feel.  You play an unnamed female lead, adventuring in a world overrun by monsters.  The world is bigger than I anticipated, and you’ll also … Read More

PN Review: Hazumi

December 25, 2014 |

An exciting arcade block-busting frenzy!

Hazumi caught me slightly by surprise, sneaking in amongst other eShop releases with little fanfare.  Which is a bit of a shame as this is a very respectable little download that fans of action puzzlers … Read More

PN Review: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (3DS)

December 23, 2014 |

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

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
