PN Review: Gravity Badgers (Wii U eShop)

June 9, 2014 | 2

Being from the United Kingdom, I’m more familiar with badgers being pecked at by crows at the side of the road than seeing them in space. So, upon hearing about Wales Interactive’s Gravity Badgers, a title that allows the player … Read More

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: Tomodachi Life

June 6, 2014 | 3

The first thing I’m going to say about this game is that it has consumed me. So I just need to get this off my chest. My name is Kaelyn Daugherty, and I am addicted to Tomodachi Life.


I’d … Read More

June 5, 2014 | 1

PN Review: I’ve Got to Run

June 4, 2014 |

Roy the Marshmallow Boy is on the move in this new Wii U eShop game, I’ve Got to Run!  There’s no story – Roy is running for running’s own sake. It’s a simple game (Nintendo Web Framework developed) and selling … Read More

PN Review: Chubbins

June 3, 2014 |

Chubbins is a new Wii U action platformer previously released on iOS.  Truthfully its origins show in many ways.  There’s just 5 worlds with no themes to speak of, there isn’t any story whatsoever, and even Chubbins himself (a pudgy … Read More

PN Review: Ittle Dew

June 3, 2014 | 2

Ittle Dew is an action-adventure title in the mold of a 2D Zelda game – so much so that some elements are directly lifted from Link’s adventures!  This is both a good thing and a bad one.  Good in that … Read More

PN Review: Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails

May 28, 2014 |

Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is a shoot ‘em up game that adds a twist on the genre.  Scram Kitty is ‘on rails’ but in a different sense than what gamers are typically used to.  Scram Kitty is … Read More

PN Review: Stick It To The Man! (Wii U)

May 26, 2014 |

Stick It To The Man! is quite a quirky, humorous little eShop game that started life on the PlayStation 3 and then began to trickle onto other platforms.  After the PS3 release, Zoink Games released the title on Vita and … Read More

PN Review: Turtle Tale

May 22, 2014 |

When a band of pirate monkeys invade Turtle Island, Shelldon sets out to save the day.  He will engage in some retro inspired platforming, taking on the invaders with a water gun.  The cartoony plot and decidedly less violent approach … Read More

PN Review: Color Zen

May 20, 2014 | 2

I was intrigued by Color Zen since first reporting on it back in October.  Part of my curiosity stemmed from not knowing what this puzzle game would be about – the launch trailer simply added fuel to my inquiring mind. … Read More

PN Review: Parking Star 3D

May 17, 2014 |

A parking simulator doesn’t sound like the most exciting premise for a game, and unsurprisingly it isn’t.  Nevertheless, despite the dull theme, I was hopeful this game might pleasantly surprise me.  Sad to say, it didn’t.  Parking Star originated as … Read More

PN Review: Jewel Match (DSiWare)

May 16, 2014 |

Who doesn’t know the match-three game? I’ve reviewed several of these titles for Pure Nintendo and played even more.  Despite their simplicity, repetitiveness, and overabundance I enjoy them.  They make for nice stretches of entertainment between more robust offerings.  The … Read More

PN Review: Mario Kart 8

May 15, 2014 | 5

I wrote about 8 different lead-ins before deciding to cut the fluff and get straight to the point. Does Mario Kart 8 live up to the hype? Yes!

Mario Kart 8 was exactly what I expected. It’s very rare to … Read More

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 14, 2014 |

There’s a lot that can go into being the Amazing Spider-Man. One must be dedicated, determined, have good morals, self-control and a strong motivation to choose and do what is right. The same level of complexity can go into making … Read More
