986th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC?Internet/Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: PopCap Games Publisher: PopCap Games A decade later, it’s hard not to feel that Bejeweled lost out after Candy Crush Saga created a large list of match three games to fight for everyone’s attention on phones.

943rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Q-Games Publisher: Nintendo Looking at the list of other Q-games titles we’ve played and that they published, such as the Pixeljunk series, Starship Patrol and Reflect Missile, it’s clear that they were one of the known indie developers for Sony and […]

912th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Thanks to the Book of Mudora podcast, I’ve been steeped in Legend of Zelda lore recently¬† – something that seems way deeper than the games justify, but it’s fun anyway.

860th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Hudson Soft Publisher: Hudson Soft Unlike other games, I didn’t play Slitherlink because I grabbed it next on my list.

858th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Firebrand Games/Atlus Publisher: Focus Home Interactive/Atlus I had an amazingly good time a while ago with Trackmania: United Forever for the PC. The racing felt fun and the puzzle and track building was a pretty fun twist. It wasn’t the first […]

836th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: Konami Digital Entertainments Contra III was a pretty standard run and gun game, with some level based enhancements that made it stand out, but ultimately existing in a genre that doesn’t appeal to me. Contra 4 […]

You often need precision mouse movement and a lot of different […]

802nd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve started playing Bowser’s Inside Story about ten years ago, shortly after its release, but didn’t get too far – too many other games and this list distracted me far enough. I’ve enjoyed the formula though – as […]

766th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been bad in playing DS games, not getting to them as often as I should – even though they’re as often great for watching TV with or similar. What doesn’t help is that it feels like they’re […]
