Pushmo for Nintendo® 3DS Fun, Frolic and Puzzle

Become a rescuer and help the trapped kids by making your way through the puzzling architecture

Pushmo is a fun and puzzle game for the Nintendo 3DS portable gaming consoles, which has been developed by Intelligent Systems. You would have to push and pull the blocks until you complete the assigned mission. And it is not as easy as it sounds!

The game is set in an animated Pushmo Park, built by a fictitious Papa Blox. He also placed some climbing walls called Pushmo in the park. As Papa Blox, your goal is to help Mallo (a helpful character) rescue some children who are now trapped by a crook inside the walled structures. The catch is that you cannot do it alone and so you have to work with Mallo (who is stronger than you are) and solve the puzzling web of complex Pushmo architecture. You would need your sharp mind and Mallo’s strength to strike a balance in order to succeed.

In the gameplay, you have to push and pull through the blocks to create the space to stand. You can jump up or down from that place on your way to rescue. The places are challenging as the blocks are placed in a complicated manner. It would not be easy to navigate on your way so easily until you put yourself through a lot of mental exercise to tackle the challenge successfully. However, you can play the stages appearing too difficult to beat, later on. In higher stages, manholes play an important role in reaching to a point. There are more than 250 levels in the game. You can share the Pushmo puzzles using the built-in Nintendo 3DS camera to create a QR code, needed to upload the QR image online.

The Oregon Trail: the old and new game

This game has been a hit among students from elementary schools for more than 40 years and has seen many platforms including the ancient DOS and latest Facebook.

The first release of The Oregon Trail game dates back to 1971. The game was developed to let the school students learn about the life of early inhabitants of Oregon Trail that is a 2,000 miles long stretch along the Missouri River. So far, ten updated versions of the game have been published, the latest being the one released in 2011. The gameplay involves playing as a pathfinder, guiding the caravan of migrants from Independence (fourth largest city of Missouri) to the Willamette Valley of Oregon in a typical Conestoga wagon. The backdrop of the game is set to a period of 1848.

The Oregon Trail is designed and developed in such a way to let the players relive the moments of past in the similar way as the pioneers did. The lessons about the historic region would come lively from the textbook as the game progresses. As a trailblazer, players would have to hunt the wild animals such as rabbits, squirrels, deer (or elks), bison, and bears. The player has a restricted supply of bullets and he can carry a maximum of 200 pounds of weight (of the prey) to the wagon. Members of the caravan are prone to illness, injuries, and death. There are scores, points, and final evaluation of a player’s skills as the mission is accomplished.

The game has been very popular among students of elementary schools, and for this reason it was launched on Facebook as well, in February 2011. For purchase and other details, visit The Oregon Trail website.

Super Mario 3D Land – exclusive for Nintendo® 3DS

This latest game title release from Nintendo 3DS that is already gaining critical acclaim all over the world, provides a very strong reason for the console owners to rejoice over.

Bought a Nintendo 3DS this Black Friday? Here is a game you would just love to play – Super Mario 3D Land. Rated ‘E’ (Everyone), this game title published by Nintendo has everything to entertain you with your device. Not exactly a cumbrous 3D game, it is a perfect mix of 3D and 2D mechanics to maintain the fluidity of the gameplay. To state it straight forward, Super Mario 3D Land makes you nostalgic once more whether it is the Goombas, the freezing ghosts, music blocks, gold coins, flagpoles, the ever evil Bowser, or the Princess Peach kidnapped by him.

The game is immaculately designed for complete fun time. You would at once notice that the missing classic Fire Power has been re-integrated into the gameplay and the familiar Tanooki Suit has found its place back into this version. There are some new features that you would have to bank upon in your play through, such as the Boomerang Mushroom that empowers you with unlimited provision of boomerangs to strike with. Another power-up feature is the Propeller Box that helps Mario (the player) to take big jumps as well as to slow down during a fall. However, unlike previous versions, you would not have the liberal power-up resources. Instead, you have to use them in a thrifty manner to avoid their consequent dearth that simply means one life lost.

Playing through the first few levels is breeze enough, unless you are a new admirer of the Mario legend. However, as you move up, the levels (Worlds) get tougher and demand your skills and attention altogether. Another similar but stiffer eight levels unlock as soon as you complete the first eight. The Nintendo 3DS portable game console offers enjoyable gaming as the joypad provides good control over the gameplay. There is a range of hidden secrets that you would feel thrilled enough to look for, provided you keep yourself under the given time limit at each level.

The visuals are truly exciting and the worlds look creative, sharp, and colorful. The gyroscope feature of the Nintendo 3DS, offers enhanced viewing while using the binoculars. Another feature, StreetPass, lets you to see the best time scores daring you to stand better. Super Mario 3D Land is an addictive, immersive, and refreshing game released for your Nintendo 3DS. If you are looking for an in-depth adventure on your Nintendo 3DS console, this game title would certainly do more than enough for you.

Even if you do not own one, this Christmas season could be a great time to go for all the fun-filled adventure with a new Nintendo 3DS. After all, the already-in-spotlight Super Mario 3D Land would descend right in your hands then.

Nintendo started its entry into the gaming market with the release of Nintendo’s Famicom, it later carved a niche for itself with the worldwide acclaimed Super Mario Bros. Some of its famed products are the Gameboy, The Gameboy advance, Wii etc. The company which fuelled many a gamers appetite and whose products are on many a teens wishlist has made a comeback in the industry with the Nintendo 3DS.

“Nintendo 3DS is a category of one – the experience simply doesn’t exist anywhere else,” said Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime. “You have to see Nintendo 3DS to believe it. And it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.”

Indeed a device that has intrigued gamers since its prototype launch last year finally comes to your hands for a price salted to be 249$. A price almost half of the iPad. It measure 5.3 by 2.9 by 0.8 inches and weighs about 230 grams. The Nintendo 3DS is somewhat like the Nintendo DS with 2 screens one a touchscreen, The top screen is the main Display screen and according to the press release: “The top screen displays 3D visuals to the naked eye. Looking at the screen is like peering through a window into a world where characters and objects have true depth. The system also has a 3D Depth Slider that lets players select the level of 3D they enjoy the most. The 3D effect can be ratcheted up to the highest level, scaled back to a more moderate setting or even turned off completely, depending on the preference of the user.”

However the 3D effect can only be seen if you are staring at the screen from the front end, tilting negates the 3d effect. However the 3D effect is so mindblowing that you would forgive Nintendo for this. It is not “characters coming out of the screen” 3D but depth 3D, and all this without the cumbersome 3D glasses. It has also been fitted with a gyroscope for motion sensing games. Its also equipped with a revolutionary StreetPass feature which would let end users exchange game information with other gamers on the Nintendo 3DS system and a SpotPass feature which would let the user connect using wifi when within  range. It comes with a slider control that will allow user to adjust the depth of the image according to their comfort. Also Nintendo claims that children under the age of 6 might suffer adverse effect due to elongated exposure to 3D. It is also loaded with two 0.3 megapixel cameras that allow you to take 3D pictures viewable on its display. It has a 4 way pad and an analog control pad. It is being launched In the US with many titles like Dead or Alive: Dimensions, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Pro Evolution Soccer 3D, Madden Football, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Asphalt 3D

Nintendo 3DS Ups Its Anti-Piracy Bandwagon

The much awaited double screened 3DS, the new successor to Nintendo DS, awaiting to be launched by March 2011 end, has even made the product tighter by introducing new technology that will protect the new model and it’s users from running non legal software.  The handheld console is built on a custom Pica200 graphics processor.

The secret technology

Nintendo is keeps their lips tight by not revealing what the technology behind the new piracy protector on the Nintendo 3DS. The company in an interview said the explanations are rather lengthy and they do not think it is appropriate enough now to spell the technology out because of the possible crack that people could plan. What they are proud of is the Nintendo continues to set higher standards in making it impossible for illegal game software’s to be used  and run on their gadgets.

Autosterescopy and DSi

Nintendo 3DS’s is unique selling point is the ability to run 3D enabled games in the portables, without the need for players to use special 3D glasses. This method of having stereoscopic aka 3D type images to be viewed without the use of any additional accessories like headgears or glasses is called autosterescopy.  Nintendo 3DS will be running their patent DS software along with autosterescopy.

Full proof to cracks

Nintendo is certainly confidant that the new portable console is fully crack free from illegal games and software downloader’s.  The company is taken the piracy attach on Nintendo DS lite quite seriously, since a lot of illegal games or pirated copied games are being heavily used on the older versions of DS’s. Although the battle between the piracy market and Nintendo has been long; and mostly the latter has been at the losing end. The company has taken a big expensive step in making the Nintendo 3DS market enticing, at the same time making it extremely difficult for piracy market to seep into the system.

The proposed titles to be available on the Nintendo 3DS are Kid Icarus: Uprising and Mario Kart 3DS. Close to 75 other titles have also been confirmed to be available; with many companies already signed up to develop games for 3DS. With two screens, the top one 3.53 inches is 3D enabled and the bottom screen is 2.02 inches had a non 3D-touch panel; the 3DS weight close to 8 oz, when closed the handheld is 5.3 inches wide, 2.9 inches long and with a  height of 0.8 inches.

Ninetendo was unveiled on June 15, during the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo, when the company invited attendees to use the console and collect feedback from the experience. Nintendo is saying all these additional features especially the 3D feature have been expensive and the primary reason not to dish out all their back end work is to make sure they get a return on their investment and when they do it they want is to be business worthy. The 3DS almost resembles the current Nintendo DSi XL, with minor changes with anti-piracy in mind.
