    With an interesting concept, Rush presents a fantastic challenge. Despite being short, your brains will be satisfied for still being capable of solving some hard puzzles.

    Wii U's version of Scribblenauts is by far the most ambitious done to date and it arrives not a moment too soon after a long delay in its release. Strongly recommended to anyone seeking a new chapter in this series.

    For parties with musical entertainment, Wii Karaoke U is a choice to consider. Its varied and enormous repertoire is sure to please any music fan and its control system makes a good use of the Wii U GamePad, which helps in overlooking a number of mistakes on the classification of the songs.

    While boasting an overall good presentation and pace of gameplay, The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths ends up becoming too repetitive despite its compelling beginning. The puzzles are easy to solve and the overall effort is rather simple, which makes this a light-hearted adventure mostly directed at a younger crowd, especially for the followers of the eponymous animation series.

    Changing characters can bring new stimulation but in the case of Dr. Luigi, virtually nothing else differs when compared to the latest Dr. Mario. A fun and competent effort using very familiar mechanics but which will fail to impress those looking for something fresh and new.

    This individual effort by the name of Unepic triggers a craving for exploration in an action-platform and adventure style, akin to the early Castlevania games. There are shortcomings and points which require a greater polishing, but the elements are all here to become an instant hit with its audience.

    Castlestorm displays certain qualities which are more than welcome and that shake the ground a bit in what is overwhelmingly a niche style. Nevertheless, its record would be far more interesting if its technical flaws and repetitiveness were solved.

    Team Ogre Attacks is another competent and fairly appealing title in the not-so-common style of sports RPGs, this time in a game adapted from an animation movie. Nevertheless, its new content is not groundbreaking enough to the point of justifying its purchase, at least for those who already own another version of Inazuma Eleven 3.

    The LEGO Movie Videogame delivers what is expected: a good movie-to-game conversion, plenty of the series' trademark humour and a top notch soundtrack. That being said, several flaws remain, such as the lack of an online multiplayer, a low difficulty level and a short lifespan, liabilities which stand in the way of making this a universally-appealing title.

    Pokémon Link: Battle! is a fun addition to the enormous Pokémon series, this time to its puzzle front. While it can get repetitive quickly, this game is mostly oriented towards short gaming bouts, as well as to local multiplayer sessions. The lack of an online component is a mystery, though. Fans of the Pokémon series and of puzzle games alike will find good reasons to put their hands on this.

    Tappingo does its role and does it well. This Picross-inspired puzzle game is simple enough to understand quickly and to grab the player's attention for some time. It does feel a bit stripped, though, looking at the lack of contents beyond its main experience, with a complete absence of extras and additional modes.

    A great improvement over its predecessor, Steel Diver: Sub Wars is successful at putting the player in a submarine environment, recreating several aspects of these vessels within the boundaries set by the 3DS. The overall short length of its one player mode and the lack of options on multiplayer mode end up becoming obstacles on its route, but this is a title that will not disappoint.

    One doesn't require a fully-accurate (and serious) football management game to have a fun, involving and addictive experience, this is the overall message of Nintendo Pocket Football Club. Its own bright, inviting charisma and enthusiasm are certain to charm a great amount of players, and not for a short time given its long lifespan.

    Beyond the graphical environments and gameplay, Pure Chess is a compelling title, offering plenty of options, as well as tutorials for beginner players. However, its asynchronous online mode harms the experience of playing with an opponent at a distance, which hampers the game’s appeal to those interested in online chess matches.

    The versatility of the Kirby franchise is only surpassed by Kirby's capacity to absorb enemies and their respective abilities. Triple Deluxe, however, does not go all the way through and is rather an example of a classic Kirby game transplanted to the 3DS. Level design starts to show some fatigue but Kirby and his enemies are as delightful as ever in their colourful ways and 3D depth perception effects.

    Nintendo keeps using its legacy as a way to boost its presence and while NES Remix 2 does strike a chord with the nostalgia crowd, it also shows its limitations by not expanding the pool of challenges beyond that of the original title. For this reason and also for the lack of a real online interaction, Remix 2 does not stand out as it should.

    As far as humorous unconventional games are concerned, Stick it to the Man fits perfectly among those titles that break the lines of conformity. The whole experience is richly treated to a recipe of originality and humour, helped by a superb sound environment. If only the programming of some of the GamePad functions was improved and longevity more ambitious, this would be an all-round winner.

    The first Inazuma Eleven to be fully produced for the 3DS had a tremendous opportunity to bring forth a significant evolution to the series. Nevertheless, other than the laudable technical progress, its new features are lukewarm at best, some of them even bothersome. This remains a solid, quality title but Inazuma Eleven GO: Light/Dark has missed its champion shot.

    Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is more than a throwback to the 16-bit era, it’s an action-packed challenge on rails, guaranteed to keep the most demanding players closely around its simple, yet demanding concept. The jumping mechanics could use a more accessible learning curve, but anyone who plays this will have their entertainment needs properly fulfilled.

    Squids Odyssey is a fun, addictive and extremely challenging turn-based RPG with an action twist. Its difficulty level can prove merciless for those less willing to invest their time and energy, but the rewards are more than welcome in this well-designed and well-crafted piece of work.

    Fan service always manages to strike a core audience but ends up sacrificing other segments of the public. In the case of One Piece: Unlimited World Red, the fans will get a proper serving character and plot-wise, but a repetitive formula and low difficulty level will not give the rest of the audience a significant challenge unless they are already fans of the series.

    Another World – 20th Anniversary is a welcome new edition of one of videogaming’s most significant works and cult classic of other days. This port keeps all that made the original so appealing, while also keeping the frustrating difficulty and low replay value.

    The result is a healthy, fun, welcoming and long-lasting blend which is certain to please the fans. It’s rather limited in its scope, though, and ends up falling on a certain mid to long-term repetitiveness.

    There's certainly a lot of qualities in The Keep and the game is not without its charms but there also seems to be an overall feeling of repetitiveness and lack of originality regarding other dungeon crawling titles.

    Knytt Underground is an odd game, and certainly a polarizing one, as some will greatly enjoy its ambiance and exploration-heavy gameplay, while others won't be able to overlook its terrible story and dialogue sections.

    Scribblenauts Unlimited on 3DS may not present some of the innovations that we have seen in the Wii U version, but it is still a solid step for the series.

    As with any regular 1980s arcade game, Space Harrier 3D's longevity derives from the circumstances of the coin-op machines it comes from, leading to a very small long-term appeal. Technically it respects the original work, although the 3rd dimension makes very little difference in this promised 3D re-edition. This is one game to be kept in mind by those looking for a typical 1980s-style arcade shooter.

    Creative levels, an involving soundtrack and a long-lasting experience make Edge a title not to miss. Any flaws Edge might have are quickly overlooked for its sheer quality. A perfect choice for any gamers looking for a puzzle game combining platformer's elements.

    This Powered Edition of F1 Race Stars attempts to create a middle-ground between hardcore Formula One fans and those who prefer a less realistic approach to the races. The effort is laudable and Codemasters can claim some partial success on the technical front and variety of events. Nevertheless, liabilities such as the short longevity and the unexplainable absence of an online multiplayer mode make this a lacklustre approach to the sport, which will disappoint the F1 crowd and prove too demanding to the more casual demographics.

    Despite its similarities with Arkham City - Armoured Edition, this Arkham Origins ends up on a lower threshold. Its hints of innovation don't go as far as they seem to promise and the lack of a multiplayer component is simply impossible to understand. A higher degree of ambition would have worked much better for Arkham Origins.
