Bird Mania 3D is significant in a few ways. Firstly, it’s the first Nintendo eShop game to be retailed at $2 USD. The game also signifies developer Teyon’s entrance into the eShop marketplace. However, the more interesting event that the game signifies is that it’s the 3DS’s first game that anyone could pick-up-and-play without any previous knowledge and still enjoy.

However, dashing through a bee will set the multiplication modifier to zero, so bees are best avoided entirely. If Mojo hits any of the green, branchy parts of the tree he also instantly dies (Maybe the tree trunks in this universe are made of paper-mache?). If viewers couldn’t tell, this game very much wants Mojo dead, but the cruelty is used effectively as it makes the oncoming obstacles almost suspenseful, which creates an ever-present tension.
