Another classic NES game debuts this week for non-ambassidorial downloading along with the demo for the very interesting puzzler from Sega- Crush 3D.
I had the chance to play Crush 3D last October at a Sega press event and I found it to be a pretty impressive game. The idea is simple, much like Paper Mario, you can slide the world from 2D into the third dimension at anytime. You do this to navigate through puzzles in the virtual reality that makes up the game’s world. It’s not for everybody, but if you try it out you just might like it.
And what more can be said about Metroid that hasn’t been already? It’s a classic of classics. If you haven’t played do yourself a favor and do so post haste.
- Crush 3D – Demo — Over 50 levels of mind stretching puzzles spread across four stunning environments, each recreating a specific aspect of Danny’s inner world. This demo is now available on Nintendo eShop.
- Metroid – $4.99 — Packed with high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and hideous alien creatures, the first installment in the immensely successful Metroid series introduces us to the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran.
- Aahh! Spot the Difference – $1.99/200 points — Demonstrate your powers of observation in this engaging “spot the difference” game. Complete 40 challenging levels in four unique scenarios by spotting the differences between the upper and lower screen.
- Aya and the Cubes of Light – 1000 points — What’s gotten into Cseom!? Instead of keeping the Cubes running, he’s taking the Energy Packs out of the terminals! The Cubes are the power sources of the stars, and if they stop working it gets dark! Play Aya, the daughter of the Cube Corporation. Teleport onto the Cubes to collect the Energy Packs to get the Cube engines working again. But it’s not that easy to find your way around; you’ll have to think around outside the box and mustn’t get disorientated, even when you’re upside down!
