Word Puzzles by POWGI Review

Lightwood Games loves Word puzzle games. The developer has already created several, with my favorite so far being Word Search by POWGI. Now, Lightwood has gone back to POWGI to deliver another word finding experience for the 3DS and the Wii U with Word Puzzles by POWGI. Is this new game any good? Let’s find out!

Lionel City Builder 3D: Rise of the Rails Review

In a desolate future, a man and his dog need your help. No, this isn’t Fallout 4. I’m talking about Lionel City Builder 3D: Rise of the Rails, a train simulation game released recently for the 3DS. In the game, you drive trains and deliver stuff in the Story Mode and build stuff in the Creation Mode. But what if you have no interest in trains? Is Lionel City Builder a good game for everyone, a good one for just train enthusiasts, or should you just avoid the game completely?

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Review

Paper Mario games are great, although have been trending downwards since the release of The Thousand Year Door on the GameCube. The last release, Sticker Star, was lackluster to say the least, borrowing heavily from the 2D Super Mario games heavily by removing the ‘open world’ and replacing it with Worlds and Levels, i.e. World 1-Level 1. On the other hand, Mario and Luigi games have always been strong titles, and even Dream Team – despite its various faults and pacing issues – was still an excellent release. I have to assume that Paper Mario fans were ...

SteamWorld Heist Review

If you ever played SteamWorld Dig, you know that developer Image and Form is not messing around. They take time to make their games, but they are damn fun! I have owned - and played - SteamWorld Dig on multiple platforms, and plan to do the same with SteamWorld Heist if it is as good as the previous title. I had my reservations, especially since I am not a big fan of turn based titles. All I can say is...wow. SteamWorld Heist is one of the best indie games I have played this year, and by far the best indie title I've played on a Nintendo platform.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon Review

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon will not be a game that every 3DS or Pokemon fan will like, but that doesn't mean it does not have some redeeming qualities. Individuals who have been turned off by previous Mystery Dungeon titles will not be won over with this latest installment. The core game play mechanics have not been overhauled much from previous titles, but the inclusion of 20 Pokemon to select as a starter, and the ability to interact with all 720 Pokemon - including legionaries - should make fans of the franchise ready to tackle and more mystery dungeons.

Yo-Kai Watch Review

If you have never heard of Yo-Kai before, I would not be surprised. Although the franchise is already a huge hit in Japan - two games, a TV show, and lots of merchandise - the franchise in North America is just getting off the ground. The TV show hit North America earlier this fall, and the first Yo-Kai game in North America launches this Friday. The real question is: Is Yo-Kai Watch on the 3DS worth your time? We think so!

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Review

Apparently, lumping together Zelda and the 3DS is not always going to produce an epic adventure like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Tri Force Heroes might use the same graphical approach, but the game could not be any more different. Despite what many reviewers are saying online, I really, REALLY enjoyed my time with Tri Force Heroes, both in single player and multiplayer. Read on to find out more!

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Review

When Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out, Animal Crossing fans were losing their minds over how good the game was. And to their credit, it was good. Great in fact! So when Nintendo announced a spin off title that involved decorating the homes of our favorite characters, fans again voiced their excitement. I enjoy Animal Crossing, and while I enjoyed New Leaf, Happy Home Designer had me incredibly skeptical.

Little Battlers Experience Review

Unless you have young kids, there is a really good chance you have never heard of Little Battlers Experience, or LBX for short. I am not in that camp; my five year old son watches LBX religiously and was very excited for the release of this 3DS title. When the review code finally came through, however, I was surprised, as I thought this was a Holiday 2015 title.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Review

Another adventure with our favourite Persona 3 and 4 characters? Yes please! Plucked from the middle of their respective games, the two separate casts are united in an alternate dimension modelled after Yasogami High during its culture festival. Searching through labyrinths for clues, the massive team of Persona users must find their way out along with two new characters, Zen and Rei.
