March 2, 2015 |

When you think about being a celebrity it seems like the best job in the world. Traveling, being rich and famous, ah the life. Well don’t forget about the people whose job it is to exploit your every mistake and misstep … Read More

PN Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

February 24, 2015 |

When Nintendo first showed off Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, I was both excited and puzzled. While I couldn’t wait for a return to the game play of Kirby Canvas Curse, I found it odd that Nintendo decided to publish … Read More

PN Review: Punch Out! (WiiU VC)

February 18, 2015 |

At first I thought it was a little silly to rerelease Wii games on the WiiU Eshop, seeing as it is backwards compatible. But I can’t complain after seeing the choice of games, the 3 that were recently added to the Eshop are great! … Read More

PN Review: Puzzle Monkeys

February 12, 2015 |

Puzzle Monkeys is a block dropping game that reminds me of Dr. Mario in more ways than one.  It’s picked a classic game for inspiration, and the addition of monkeys are worth an extra point just on their own!  The … Read More

PN Review: Dolphin Up

February 9, 2015 |

If you enjoy chasing high scores, the odds are good that Dolphin Up will entertain you. How long you’ll remain entertained is a fair question though, since there just isn’t a whole lot to this game. Is what’s on offer sufficient?

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

Roll 7’s skateboarding video game, OlliOlli, has launched on multiple platforms and is finally making its way towards the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS this March. The announcement was made via a tweet by @CurveDigital and states, “So, remember we … 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

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: 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: 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
