Dr. Mario hits 3DS eShop this week

By Alex Donaldson, Monday, 19 March 2012 14:07 GMT

Mario’s classic doctor-themed Game Boy puzzler is the highlight of the Nintendo eShop update this week in an update that is otherwise pretty bare.

The original 1990 black and white Game Boy offering of the puzzle title, which is a pretty basic spin on Tetris and Columns style gameplay, will be available on Thursday. It’ll set you back £2.70 in the UK and €3 in Europe.

Also out this week is a spot the difference game for DSiWare (£1.80/€2) and a free demo of the already-released Pyramids, an Egyptian-themed puzzler.

That’s your lot. Once again, it’s all out on Thursday.

  • DSiWare title Abyss gets new trailer

    EnjoyUp Games has given its latest DSiWare title Abyss the trailer treatment, showing off some underwater exploring action. Abyss was originally announced in June, and sees players navigating the robot Nep2no in a search for energy sources called Gaia stones. See it in motion below.

  • 99 Bullets heading towards DSiWare at a rapid pace

    This is an interesting, confusing little idea. Imagine a shoot-em-up where every bullet represents a life, and every life represents a bullet. You’ve only got 99 of them, so shoot – and duck – wisely.
