PN Review: Frenchy Bird

February 7, 2015 |

I did not plan on reviewing Frenchy Bird. After my experience with Spikey Walls, I figured I’d let one of my coworkers take a crack at it.  The fact that it sat in the review queue for a couple of … Read More

PN Review: Drop Zone – Under Fire (3DS eShop)

February 5, 2015 |

I briefly had my eye on this game when it first launched on WiiWare in late 2012.  As the service was nearly dead though, I quickly turned my attention towards the 3DS and upcoming Wii U titles. While I am … Read More

PN Review: Gunman Clive 2

February 4, 2015 |

Gunman Clive is back, this time in a globe-trotting adventure.  He’ll face a mixture of new and returning foes in this challenging sequel.  The original was a very good action game, but Gunman Clive 2 surpasses it in nearly every … Read More

PN Review: Rock ‘N Racing Off Road

January 31, 2015 | 1

I’ve nostalgic memories of Super Off Road, both in the arcades and on Nintendo consoles. Rock ‘N Racing Off Road is based upon that classic, seen in both its title and design.  Sadly it hasn’t injected that nostalgic template with enough … Read More

PN Review: Family Tennis SP (Wii U eShop)

January 30, 2015 |

Sports games don’t usually appeal to me, they’re repetitive and most of the time boring. Family Tennis SP on the other hand took me by surprise, It’s actually a really fun game. Especially if you’ve been waiting for a simple … Read More

PN Review: Breezeblox

January 29, 2015 |

Breezeblox is a puzzler built around successful navigation. It has you determining how to guide a cube to various sections of a platform, without falling off said platform. There’s a good amount of challenging content here, yet it doesn’t feel … Read More

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

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

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
