Game Boy: Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters, $3.99
Monsters are wreaking havoc in Angel Land, and Pit needs to take up his bow once again. This Game Boy game plays very similarly to the NES classic: collect hearts and hammers, battle enemies, explore large platforming levels, and find the Three Sacred Treasures in order to defeat the great evil.
Game Boy: Tumble Pop, $2.99
Monsters are running amok on Earth, and it’s up to you and your super-powered vacuum to clean things up. Collect power-ups and suck up enemies in eight different worlds, or create your own levels in Construction Mode.
eShop: The Phantom Thief Stina and 30 Jewels, $4.99
In the year 2120, helper robots are everywhere, and the Phantom Thief Stina is using them to help her steal jewels. Sneak past guards and bypass security to steal 30 jewels, then play as Detective Sara to try and stop the thief.
eShop: Masyu by Nikoli, $4.99
Nikoli returns with another puzzle game. Draw lines according to the black and white circles shown on the screen. Play one of 50 hand-made puzzles, or try out Random mode.
DSiWare: Rabi Laby 2, $1.99/200 Nintendo Points
Rabi and Alice have been kidnapped by the Queen’s minions, and now they must work together to escape. Use both characters’ powers creatively in this puzzle platformer, avoiding traps.
DSiWare: Petit Computer, $7.99/800 Nintendo Poiints
This programming tool lets you create music, images, and even video games from scratch. Users can create and run their own programs using an adapted version of the BASIC programming language. Programs can later be shared via DS Wireless Play, or via a QR code generated via online software.
Petit Computer looks rather interesting. I’m not sure BASIC is the best language to start with for serious programmers, but it’s probably more of a fun tool to play with.
