Just picked up a few eShop games tonight - Mega Man for Virtual Console and a nice arcade shooter called Galaxy Saver for $1.99 - kind of a reverse take on Tempest and Gyruss. You move your ship around the space station and fire at enemy ships coming from 360 degrees.

And Gunman Clive for the 3DS for $1.99 as well. This game got my interest when it was released for iOS but I never pulled the trigger. Just saw it hit the eShop tonight and picked it up in 3D. It is a great wild west type platformer with really cool pencil sketched art style.


Check'em out Retro Gamers!

I bought these titles
Tetris - GB
Qix - GB
Donkey Kong - GB
Gargoyles Quest - GB
Super MArio Land - GB
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins GB
Burger Time DELUXE - GB

Xevious - 3D Classics

Sonic Triple Trouble - Sega GG

Metroid 1 - NES
Super MArio Bros. - NES

Also - Inch Worm Animation Software.

I have completed most of the titles above to 100% with the help of savestates and i have a new found love of Nintendo.

What has everyone else been buying/Playing???

I think it was Leathco that mentioned on the "Stalking the Retro" podcast a 3DS download called 'VVVVVV' which is a great puzzle/maze game with C64 type graphics. It was about $8, but worth it. Lots of fun. Thanks Leathco (or who ever it was)!

Thanks for listening to STR drich255! It's always cool to hear from our listeners. I'm hoping to get Leathco back real soon for another episode.

No problem. It is a good show and I like the game recommendations.

I hope this Famicom Disc System import game releases in the US market. I believe it is available in the UK 3DS eShop.

The Mysterious Murasame Castle (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/mysterious_murasame_castle_nes)

Looks great!

I bought that but haven't played it yet.

I like the Picross-e games and when I bought the 4th recently it saw the saves from the first 3 and unlocked some bonus levels.

I'm quite interested in 1001 Spikes, it's kinda like a famicom/nes puzzle platformer that's a little along the super meat boy/dark souls methods of finding where the traps are in levels by dying and figuring out how to string a perfect run through each level to avoid them

Doesn't appear to be in the UK 3ds shop yet though (it is on a lot of other platforms too)

Nice. I have all four of the Picross-e games too, but haven't finished the 1st one yet. My progress has slowed now that I am on the harder puzzles.



I'm quite interested in 1001 Spikes...

I haven't picked up 1001 Spikes yet, but it does look great. I don't know if I should get the 3DS version or the Wii U version.

Hopefully you don't have to wait to long for it to come to the UK market.

We already have it. It's pretty tough though.

Donkey Kong: Original Edition is out (or will be releasing soon) for 3DS.

This is the version they gave away one time if you bought a certain game a couple of years ago. And to be clear, this is the NES version of the game with the cement factory level added in.

I will buy this since I missed out on the offer, but they are missing the boat by not having the original arcade DK on the eShop. That would be awesome on the Wii U. Since the arcade is a vertical monitor, it may not look great playing it on the 3DS or the gamepad, but it would look great on the TV.

Vipp (and everyone else) try this 3DS game out if you haven't already: Mutant Mudds (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/2012/01/mutant_mudds_3dsware). I need to credit Pete Dorr on the All Gen Gamers Podcast for this recommendation. It is an excellent platformer with a retro look, has simple controls (yet challenging), and has a unique platforming style that uses the 3D. It also has a retro feel in the sense that it has a simple story where you play a young boy saving the world. There is a free demo on the 3DS eShop (in the US at least) that lets you try the game before buying it. Check it out. Lots of fun. And apparently a sequel is in the works.

I have this on GOG.com (Septic Lemon kindly bought it for me a long time ago) it's a really fun game, i will check out the UK 3DS store and see what price they are asking for it. I have been playing SMB3 on the 3DS since reading your last update.

Nice! Great game, but one version is probably sufficient.

Just finished Mutant Mudds 100%. What a great game! Challenging, but not impossible. Can't wait for the sequel!

Some eShop sales I was thinking of taking advantage of (USA).

10-in-1: Arcade Collection (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/10_in_1_arcade_collection) ($0.99) - Arcade clones
Weapon Shop de Omasse (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/weapon_shop_de_omasse) ($2.99) - Rhythm Game
Chain Blaster (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/chain_blaster) ($2.99) - Space Shooter
Steel Empire (http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/steel_empire) ($15.99) - Steampunk Shooter (more tempting than the $30 new price, but still pricey)

Most of these will be on sale for another week or two.
