PN Review: GetClose: A game for RIVALS

December 16, 2014 |

GetClose is one of those titles easier understood with a controller in hand, or in this case hands.  A multiplayer only release, GetClose requires two people to share the same GamePad.  This makes for some “interesting” competition to say the … Read More

PN Review: Talking Phrasebook – 7 Languages

December 15, 2014 |

This new translation app isn’t overly comprehensive, but rather is designed to offer language assistance in a variety of applicable situations.  Talking Phrasebook functions exactly as advertised, meaning it’s worth a look for those in the market for a program … Read More

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

PN Review: Shiny the Firefly

December 12, 2014 |

Shiny the Firefly tasks you with leading a myriad of lost babies safely to each level exit.  Along the way you’ll need to solve some puzzles for successful navigation, as well as battle (and hide!) from enemies.  The game grabbed … Read More

PN Review: Thomas Was Alone

December 5, 2014 |

Thomas Was Alone is a puzzle platformer that’s as much an experience as it is a game.  With so many elements coming together in such splendid ways, it is greater than the sum of its parts.  The positive impression it’s … Read More

PN Review: Heptrix

December 1, 2014 |

Heptrix is a falling block puzzler in the Tetris mold.  There’s a bit of a 7 theme with it – each block consists of 7 pieces, every fallen piece is worth 7 points, you clear 7 lines to advance a … Read More

PN Review: Battleminer

November 30, 2014 | 3

I’ve a confession to make – I’m one of those who’ve never played Minecraft.  We do exist, at least according to my very informal Twitter poll.  So apologies to those wanting many comparisons, as I’m mainly going off videos.  On … Read More

PN Review: Snake Den

November 25, 2014 |

Use cunning, quick reflexes, and sheer luck to grow a tail to brag about.

Playing Snake Den evokes some nostalgia – Surround on the 2600, light cycling in Tron, gaming on my first cell phone, etc.  Nearly everything about this … Read More

PN Review: Chat-A-Lot

November 24, 2014 |

Chat-A-Lot is a new 3DS application designed to connect you with those on your friend list.  This program has many serious issues though.  Your initial (and fair) question might be ‘What does this offer that can’t be found elsewhere for … Read More

PN Review: Sportsball

November 20, 2014 |

Sportsball is as much a party game as it is a sports one.  It’s described by the developers as “soccer, jousting, and flying birds”, and that’s a spot on synopsis.  Read on as I expound on the game’s specifics, and … Read More

PN Review: Xavier

November 19, 2014 |

Xavier is a prehistoric platformer where you help a young caveman on his coming of age quest.  It’s a very straightforward affair, totally functional yet unimaginative.  On a system with no shortage of high quality platformers, generic games like this … Read More

PN Review: Safari Quest

November 18, 2014 |

Some months back I reviewed a game called Atlantic Quest, a match three affair that’s better than many.  Safari Quest is from the same developer and publisher, and basically Atlantic Quest in different environments.  It’s still enjoyable, although it offers … Read More

PN Review: Shuttle Rush

November 17, 2014 |

As a fan of both 2D platformers and science fiction, I was drawn to Shuttle Rush.  The action unfolds on an alien space station, where you’re trying to escape the hostile natives while also surviving a serious air shortage.  The … Read More

PN Review: I’ve Got to Run: Complete Edition!

November 14, 2014 |

In concluding my review of I’ve Got to Run for the Wii U I said, “I hope to see more of Roy – a 3DS port of this game or DLC updates would be great!”  Turns out this 3DS version is … Read More

PN Review: Skylanders: Trap Team (3DS)

November 9, 2014 |

My Skylanders experience had been limited to admiring the toys when walking through the electronics section at Target.  So when the opportunity arose to review the latest release from a newbies perspective, I welcomed the chance.  Trap Team is a … Read More

PN Review: Pixel Paint

November 6, 2014 |

Create retro pixel art using the Wii U Gamepad and share with the world!
