Now that 3DS consoles are finally flying off the shelves, there’s a large number of people with access to the eShop for the first time.
Although the eShop itself hasn’t been off to a great start, there are quite a few Virtual Console games now available on it. The quality of those games are massively varied, though – our scores for these games have ranged from 0.5/5 all the way up to 5/5.
So, as a summary and to give the 3DS owners a starting point, here’s the best five virtual console games currently available for download:
Qix is the simplest game on this list, but because it’s so hard and yet so addictive, it’s well worth the asking price. The aim of the game is to fill in a rectangle by drawing lines that dissect it through the middle. The challenge comes from some very aggressive, formless hazards that roam the playing field. Touch one of those and lose a life. There’s been hundreds of clones of this game in the past, but rarely carried off with as much style as the original.
