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

PN Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

August 26, 2014 | 1

Taking two of the most popular series from Nintendo’s handhelds and combining them in a highly anticipated crossover, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney could be a joy for fans of either.  For a while it looked like this … Read More

PN Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop)

August 25, 2014 | 1

SteamWorld Dig is a gem on the 3DS and when Image & Form announced it would be releasing on Wii U, fans rejoiced.  SteamWorld Dig is just as spectacular on the Wii U and in my opinion is superior to … Read More

PN Review: Soon Shine

August 18, 2014 |

Soon Shine is a new action puzzler built around racking up high scores.  It was made by the indie team at Dahku Creations.  Soon Shine has several improvements over their Wii U debut Chubbins, making for a better and more … Read More

PN Review: Jett Tailfin

August 17, 2014 |

Poor games aren’t much fun to review.  Even more frustrating are poor games that actually have potential.  While some titles are just bad all around, others have a good foundation but fall victim to regrettable decisions.  Jett Tailfin is in … Read More

PN Review: Shut The Box (Wii U eShop)

August 15, 2014 |

Shut The Box from developer, RCMADIAX, is a nice little Wii U eShop title but not as fun as previous releases from the indie. Shut The Box is a simple game based off of the ‘board game’.  Typically this game … Read More

PN Review: XType Plus (Wii U eShop)

August 14, 2014 |

XType Plus, a schmup from indie developer PhobosLab, suffered a set back on release with a bug that caused the game to freeze.  XType Plus was removed from the eShop in Europe and North America but has since returned after … Read More
