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: 3D After Burner II

January 21, 2015 |

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: 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: 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

PN Review: League of Heroes

January 6, 2015 |

I need to start this review with a disclaimer – If you don’t like repetitive titles, you won’t like League of Heroes.  Having said that, this little game has pleasantly surprised me.  The story leaves you to your own devices, … Read More

PN Review: Mario Pinball Land (Wii U Virtual Console)

January 6, 2015 |

Nintendo released a few quality Mario led GBA ports in the fourth quarter of 2014, including Super Mario Advance and Mario Kart: Super Circuit.  Unfortunately Mario Pinball Land (Super Mario Ball) cannot measure up to them.  It’s a curious attempt … Read More

PN Review: PUZZLEBOX setup

December 31, 2014 |

PUZZLEBOX setup is a curiously named new eShop release, with a unique hook.  To play this title, you hold your 3DS upside down!  Using your stylus to select from colored columns (which are now on the top screen) tiles will … Read More

PN Review: Fairune

December 29, 2014 |

Welcome to Fairune, where illusion is reality.

Fairune is an action RPG with a decidedly retro feel.  You play an unnamed female lead, adventuring in a world overrun by monsters.  The world is bigger than I anticipated, and you’ll also … Read More

PN Review: Spy Chameleon

December 26, 2014 | 1

Spy Chameleon is a cool name for a cool game.  This arcade style adventure takes you through a number of missions, where you’ll have to utilize color changing abilities to solve puzzles necessary to progress.  Action gamers needn’t feel left out … Read More

PN Review: Hazumi

December 25, 2014 |

An exciting arcade block-busting frenzy!

Hazumi caught me slightly by surprise, sneaking in amongst other eShop releases with little fanfare.  Which is a bit of a shame as this is a very respectable little download that fans of action puzzlers … Read More

PN Review: Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion

December 22, 2014 | 1

Indie collaborations have become more common this past year, and I suspect they’ll keep growing in 2015.  I welcome these, especially if they produce more titles like Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion.  This latest project from RCMADIAX and Leuvsion takes … Read More

PN Review: Plenty of Fishies

December 22, 2014 |

Variety is the key in Plenty of Fishies, a colorful new action game with a focus on high scores.  Up to five of you can compete (and cooperate at times) across several different modes.  The game succeeds in many ways, … Read More

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
