PN Review: Chests O’ Booty

October 22, 2014 |

Bored o’ those landlover match-three games?  Then you’ve found the right game ye’ scurvy scalawag.

If any genre is in need of a shakeup, it’s match-three puzzlers.  So I commend Wildmane Studios for trying something different with the stale titles.  … Read More

PN Review: Ping 1.5 +

October 21, 2014 |

Ping 1.5 + takes the simplest of premises – guiding a small white cube to an orange sphere – and turns it into one of the most challenging Wii U games yet!  It may not be for the easily frustrated, … Read More

PN Review: Pyramids 2

October 19, 2014 |

The original Pyramids debuted way back in October 2011.  Three years later its sequel has finally arrived.  Will Pyramids 2 find the same success its predecessor did, or even surpass it?

In this puzzle platformer you once again take control … Read More

PN Review: Cubemen 2 (Wii U eShop)

October 18, 2014 |

The original Cubemen never released on a Nintendo platform so the franchise makes its debut on Nintendo systems with the Wii U release, Cubemen 2.  Cubemen 2 is a tower defense game with a smattering of real-time strategy.  Players will wage blocky … Read More

PN Review: Turtle Tale (Wii U eShop)

October 12, 2014 |

If you’re a fan of retro inspired 2D platformers you’ll definitely want to give Turtle Tale a look.  In fact you might have done so already – the game debuted on 3DS just a few months ago.  It was a … Read More

PN Review: 99Seconds

October 9, 2014 |

First with Abyss and followed with Darts Up, EnjoyUp Games seems to be in the process of porting several of their popular handheld titles to Wii U.  If they’re good games like 99Seconds though, there’s reason for excitement.  The 99 … Read More

PN Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade

September 30, 2014 |

Angry Bunnies is very much an Angry Birds clone, something I perhaps dwelled too much on when reviewing the 3DS version.  Fresh off Flappy Bird “spin-off” Spikey Walls however, I feel I can be more tolerant of clone games so … Read More

PN Review: Arrow Time U

September 29, 2014 |

Arrow Time U joins a small handful of recent Wii U games that have released in spite of unsuccessful crowd funding.  I give XenoHorizon kudos for seeing the game through to completion.  I further appreciate that the Wii U is … Read More

PN Review: Darts Up

September 24, 2014 |

It may have lost the 3D, but Darts Up brings a couple new tricks along with its move to the home console realm.  Does EnjoyUp’s budget game still have what it takes more than a year after its initial release?  … Read More

PN Review: Secret Empires of the Ancient World

September 23, 2014 |

Search for secrets among the ruins of great ancient civilizations!

Like City Mysteries, this is a globetrotting hidden object game from Selectsoft.  And as was the case with its predecessor, I feel the theme could be better represented.  It held … Read More

PN Review: Gothic Masquerade

September 21, 2014 |

 “Visit Gothic Masquerade and find all its mysteries!”

With locales like “Cryptic Castle” and “Mystery Museum”, I expected to see Scooby and the gang wandering in the background.  Instead we have the same scattered items used in the other hidden … Read More

PN Review: SPIKEY WALLS

September 19, 2014 |

SPIKEY WALLS has already invited a lot of criticism on itself as an unapologetic clone of the infamous game Flappy Bird.  The side scrolling, arcade style, endless flyer was a flash in the pan on mobile nearly a year ago.  … Read More

PN Review: Hideaways: Foggy Valley

September 17, 2014 |

Hideaways: Foggy Valley is very similar to City Mysteries, Selectsofts’ prior hidden object game that I reviewed a couple of months back.  In fact, if you put the games side by side you might be hard pressed to tell them … Read More

PN Review: Ice Cream Surfer

September 14, 2014 |

“Welcome to Ice Cream Surfer.  Are you ready to free the universe from the Evil Vegetables?”

Ice Cream Surfer is worth at least one point on name alone!  This humorous shooter has a nonsensical plot about evil broccoli wanting to … Read More

PN Review: Tappingo 2

September 5, 2014 |

Tappingo was an enjoyable puzzle game released earlier in the year, and this newly launched sequel looks to continue things.  It is more of the same, but is that bad?  Not when it’s as fun and polished as this picross … Read More

PN Review: Dedede’s Drum Dash Deluxe & Kirby Fighters Deluxe (3DS eShop)

September 1, 2014 |

Without owning a copy of Kirby: Triple Deluxe it is hard to tell what kind of experience these mini games provided in the retail release.  According to Justin Sharp’s review of Triple Deluxe, “The Kirby Fighters game is a fun … Read More

PN Review: Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter

August 29, 2014 |

Thorium Wars was a highly regarded DSiWare game.  Big John Games is no doubt hoping this sequel does even better on the 3DS eShop.  Being featured in Nintendo’s E3 eShop highlights trailer is a good start!  Thorium Wars: Attack of … Read More

PN Review: Squid’s Odyssey (3DS eShop)

August 28, 2014 |

I was fortunate enough to review this game for the Wii U, and can happily report that this version is the better of the two.

For the uninitiated, Squid’s Odyssey was originally released for iOS in 2011, with other smart … Read More
