    Without anything remarkable to offer in the four fields that it touches upon - action, adventure, puzzle and arcade - this is best used as a basis to learn about how to make videogames, as the insights on game design found along the way are more entertaining than any other component the game offers.

    Fishdom H2O: Hidden Odyssey ends up not rising above the waterline, as its fun factor is too short-lived and its gameplay quickly becomes too repetitive. The proliferation of similar titles on the World Wide Web, where games about looking for objects are very common, makes Hidden Odyssey a passable title, only recommended to those who are enthusiastic about staring at aquaria.

    Castle Conqueror Defender quickly falls into a repetitive process which will appeal to very few players out there.

    My Style Studio: Notebook takes its attempt to recreate a school notebook a bit too far, so far that it ends up with an unpractical experience which does not feel intuitive at all for the player.

    There are few reasons why a game that is available on the mobile market and also available for free on a Flash format should be released as a paying game for the 3DS. Other than players with a very keen interest in poker and who are not familiar with the other versions of this game, very few will find it appealing.

    Tangram Style has no ambition and it shows. An overall dull and technically flawed experience, which will wear out the players’ patience and which does not in any way maximize the game’s potential lifespan derived from its very high number of puzzles, Tangram Style is only to be considered by those specifically looking for something like this.

    A strategy game without much strategy to speak of cannot make it far. This is the case of European Conqueror 3D, which intends to bring the player to the war theatres of World War II, but rather ends up becoming an extremely dull war of its own between the players and their patience to put up with the extremely slow pace of play and stale audiovisual environments.

    A short, uninspired effort, hampered by serious obstacles which prevent it from being fully completed, this downloadable title is not worthy of more than a few minutes’ attention.

    A beat’em up in the style of what was done in the early 90s but which is not fluid at all, has a faulty and dull gameplay and overall is simply not fun does not carve its own space in the Wii U’s online lineup.

    Gravity Badgers is full of good intentions. Its plentiful contents and interest mechanics have everything that would amount to a fun and compelling challenge…but its repetitiveness and exaggerated resource to those very same mechanics end up leaving the player weary and tired.

    All the potential of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures gets lost in an uninteresting mix of frustrating gameplay mechanics, camera failures and a short lifespan. Pity the iconic Namco character, who finds himself in an uninspired experience, surrounded by more captivating offers in the platforms genre.

    Shiny the Firefly may have an excellent artwork but it immediately becomes a dull and repetitive experience that fails to captivate or pose a significant challenge. Based on the game's art, this could be taken further and into more promising fields but faced with a gameplay that is all but compelling and interesting, there is little choice left other than leave Shine the Firefly in the (digital) shelf.

    Wooden Sen'SeY shows some ambition but unfortunately, its badly implemented control schemes and physics make it extremely difficult and frustrating to play. Sadly, if these problems were addressed, this would be a much more attractive game but it's impossible going around such pressing control issues when the controls are so difficult to use.

    Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot can be best described as having a well intended and well thought concept but whose implementation does not let it live up to its potential. A merciless jumping mechanic and controls which should have been fine-tuned contribute to an extremely demanding experience which will frustrate the majority of players.

    My Exotic Farm does not stand out in any of the fields it tries to follow: farm managing and animal care. Had it followed one of these, it could perhaps stand on its own legs but as it is, My Exotic Farm isn’t more than a tedious and repetitive piece of work with very little content to speak of.

    Family Tennis SP tries to be a family-friendly tennis game but it becomes obvious that many of its points need to be revised and polished. Overall, it doesn’t manage to captivate and even hardcore tennis fans have better options available.

    Excave may have an interesting concept but its overall simplistic implementation and uninspired enemies and locations mean that even the biggest action RPG fans will quickly find themselves bored by this game and seek something more compelling and involving.

    Yet another attempt to emulate Flappy Bird’s incredibly addictive/frustrating (scratch as appropriate) mechanics, Frenchy Bird brings its experience to the Wii U and with a stereotypical French treatment to its visual and sound components. Unfortunately, this is far from the ideal format for a game of this kind and there’s plenty of other similar titles on the market.

    Rock ‘N Racing Off Road could have been shaped into something fun and enjoyable, even if not very ambitious. Unfortunately, problems in the responsiveness of the controls – which seriously increase the game’s difficulty – and a lack of content make this a passable, frustrating title.

    The burden of mundane, everyday tasks does not seem like an attractive premise for a videogame. Yet, this is what Life With Horses 3D mostly consists of. Uninteresting and difficult to control racing and management activities, plagued by bothersome duties and outdated graphics which will only put away any enthusiasm for this game, Life With Horses 3D does not stand out in any field.

    It’s hard to understand why such a flawed piece of work would be released without at least a major revision. Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! tries and fails not only at being a decent playable effort, but even at portraying a popular animation series for its fans. If anything, it provides an example of what not to do in a game.

    It's refreshing and even praiseworthy that there's a game for the 3DS built entirely around its Augmented Reality capabilities. Sadly, there's very little substance to support this effort and Bubble Pop World ends up being a failed attempt to follow the legacy of Bust-a-Move. Overall, this is an uninteresting title, which does not motivate the player to discover the potential of AR technology.

    Gardening Mama takes the series one notch down by focusing on redundant and plain useless activities which make little sense. The experience is repetitive and simply not fun, even for the less demanding audience.

    Skater Cat's catchy tune (yes, there's only one) and acceptable graphical environments are not nearly enough to redeem what is an overwhelming exercise of repeating the same formula, the same mechanics and the exact same pattern again and again...Many aspects of this game need to be revised if it is ever aiming at becoming something worth considering.

    This game attempts to recreate the classic arcade racers of the late 1990s but ends up being a mediocre and lackluster effort with its only 1990s elements being the quality of the visual environment, which is visibly outdated.

    Even after trying very hard, it’s impossible to find something worthy about Angry Bunnies. This Angry Birds clone is a very unpolished and flawed piece of work, which although displaying a certain degree of effort on level design, does not compel the players in any way.

    It's baffling how Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric draws inspiration from such good sources but fails at delivering almost everything it promises. Burdened by technical problems, a lackluster plot, confusing exploration mechanics and empty settings, Rise of Lyric needed a complete overhaul before being released.

    Darts Up could have been an enjoyable, simple game for a good time with friends...but it falls far from that goal. Its bland visual environment, lack of options and overall poor gameplay make Darts Up something to avoid.

    Riding Star 3D is a collection of failed experiences, repetitive challenges, flawed controllers and outdated graphics. It's hard to see how this game brings any added value to the 3DS catalogue, as all its elements are simply unworthy of exploring.

    Jett Tailfin may seem like a decent proposal, given its Mario Kart inspiration and the amount of tracks, characters and background...but this quickly gets lost in a sea of faulty controls, a camera which does more harm than good, frequent slowdowns, poor artificial intelligence and a shoddy visual environment.
