Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review

Toad Cover

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the realization of a 3D platformer in which you cannot jump, becoming an awesome puzzle game. The concept of Captain Toad first appeared in Super Mario 3D World, featured as a small mini-game. Treasure Tracker takes the formula and builds it into an entire game with over 60 different levels. In this Mario spin-off, you play the intrepid Captain Toad, who, due to his large backpack, is unable to jump like the his other Toad counterparts.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y: Critique

Pokémon X and Y

The Pokémon franchise is one of the top five selling video game series of all time. I’ve been a part of more than a few of those sales, buying every main line Pokémon game, including the latest generation of games, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. I love this series, but as I’ve grown older I’ve begun to see their flaws. Most Pokémon games are a mixed of bag of absolutely amazing things and some things that are pretty poor, but I’ve found it to be a franchise that is always growing and improving on itself.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Review

Kirby-Triple-Deluxe

Some things never change and that’s not always a bad thing. In the case of Kirby: Triple Deluxe for the 3DS, the developers, HAL Laboratory, decide not to change the Kirby formula up too much. The general Kirby concept stays the same in the 13th iteration of this Nintendo classic. In this version, the centerpiece of it all is the new Hypernova, a new ability that allows Kirby to swallow up multiple enemies at once and move parts of the stage to solve puzzles.
