Box Pusher really reminds me of the classic Turbo puzzle title Boxy Boy. That's a really good thing by the way, as I wasted quite a bit of time on that one long ago, in a galaxy far, far, away.
But crate shoving aside, the real star this week is a western themed, desert farin', town savin', armadillo. It's also a pretty big release for the eShop for the simple reason that this is a bonafide original Nintendo IP that's appearing on the download service before anywhere else. Billed as an action/tower defense game, Dillon's Rolling Western just feels like a full fledged retail release- and it certainly has that Nintendo charm.
