Tappingo, the first 3DS game by award-winning indie developer Hugo Smits, has recently been announced for the Nintendo e-shop.

According to Smits “It’s a puzzle game kind of like Picross (but with a totally different gameplay mechanic).  The game will feature many different pixel-art based puzzles in all types of categories (sports, animals, computers, etc.)”
