Tetris Axis Review

Tertis Axis LogoThe latest iteration of the venerable Tetris series finds its home on the Nintendo 3DS in the form of Tetris Axis. This version, developed by Hudson Soft, offers 15 single player modes that include favourites like Marathon and Tower Climber in addition to two AR modes and the all-new Fever mode.

The game brings a fair amount of new content to the table, some of which is good, but the AR modes are downright terrible. Tetris Axis also offers a host of local and online multiplayer options, but it falls short in its presentation and suffers from surprising performance issues. Read More...

3D Classics: Urban Champion Review

3D Classics: Urban Champion Title ScreenDeveloped by Arika, 3D Classics: Urban Champion is a revamped version of a fighting game originally released for the NES in 1984. Though the action is rudimentary and crude by today's standards, this two button brawler has a good presentation and can be entertaining in short bursts.

In 3D Classics: Urban Champion, you play as a blue-haired combatant trying to rise the ranks of the local underground fighting scene. Starting out as the "Lonely Champion", you must survive 99 rounds of bare knuckle boxing to become the undisputed Urban Champion. Read More...

nintendogs + cats Review

nintendogs + cats LogoThe Nintendo 3DS is home to the second iteration of the popular virtual pet franchise. nintendogs + cats comes in three flavours; Toy Poodle, French Bulldog and Golden Retriever and as its title suggests, now includes cats. While each version of the game contains nine unique dog breeds, all offer the same three cat breeds to chose from.

nintendogs + cats closely follows the concept laid out the previous versions for the DS, and revolves around feeding, cleaning, playing and competing with your puppy. Voice recognition is central to the game and works pretty accurately, according to your dog’s level of obedience. Read More...

Picross 3D Review

Picross 3D LogoThe latest game in the Touch Generations series successfully translates the addictive, number-based logic of Picross to a 3D environment. Picross 3D offers incredible value and contains over 350 puzzles, with even more available via friends and the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

The game is most easily described as sculpture-by-numbers. Starting with a large, rectangular block players will break down cubes to reveal a colourful, chibi-esque sculpture. Numbers represent the total amount of cubes that should appear in a given row or column and, a bit like in Sudoku, you will use your logic to find which cubes belong in the puzzle or not. Symbols also indicate whether the cubes appear in a continuous series, in sets of two or more. Read More...
