3D Classics: Kid Icarus, $5.99
To celebrate Kid Icarus: Uprising, Nintendo has released an upgraded version of the original. Medusa has captured Palutena, the Goddess of Light, and it’s up to the angel Pit to save the day. Travel through the Underworld, Overworld and Skyworld, defeating enemies, exploring labyrinths and finding the Three Sacred Treasures.
eShop: Pyramids (demo), free
This 3DS-exclusive downloadable puts you in the boots of an explorer with lots of loot, trying to escape pyramids. Along with TNT and a gun to defeat enemies, you have a shovel to create and destroy bricks so you can create stairs, bridges, and more in order to successfully escape. This game contains 54 levels spread out across 6 worlds.
DSiWare: I Must Run!, $1.99/200 Nintendo Points
In this DSiWare title, you must run! You’ve got 24 hours to get to the city center and save your wife. Dash across rooftops, through subway stations and more in this fast-paced platformer that will put your reflexes to the test.
Kid Icarus is a really tough game, but I still find it a lot of fun; I’d say it’s worth $5.99 if you’re a fan of classic platformers.
