I don’t play too many 3DS games, but one that caught my eye was Chicken Wiggle. It had a sense of wonder and adventure to it that I found immensely attractive. The great visuals and excellent looking gameplay had me hooked from the first time I saw it and I needed to experience it. After playing it, I have to say that Atooi has another masterpiece on their hands.

Chicken Wiggle is a 2D platformer with excellent controls, and lovable protagonists. Normally 2D platformers these days feel a need to guide you through every last detail but Chicken Wiggle lets you jump right in and learn it for yourself. I found this refreshing, and despite needing a few minutes to get the hang of it, it was all for the best. The learning curve is not that bad and honestly, this is a game for platformer fans of all degrees of experience.

There is an issue with the difficulty varying wildly at times, which can be annoying but I don’t feel its a major problem. Overall, I find the gameplay amazing, as while the protagonists moves are basic, there is a lot that can be done with them. Chick can jump run, and attack enemies and obstacles, while the worm can reach far-away platforms and walls with stickiness. Using them both in creative ways makes a things a lot more interesting and opens new possibilities. The levels are well designed and give you a lot of room to experiment in, and this isn’t even considering the various power ups you get throughout the levels.

Chicken Wiggle has some incredible music as well, and the soundtrack just feels fun. The soundtrack perfect companion piece to this game and helps further the experience, so my hat goes off to Atooi for that as well. Visually the game is excellent as well, and has a great art style that just works for it.

If anything, it is sad that the game does have an end to it, but even then it doesn’t have to end. The game has an excellent level editor that seems to take after Super Mario Maker, and lets you share your levels with others. Its does have a drawback though, in that the interface is a bit unintuitive and can be more cumbersome that you would expect. Still sharing and playing levels is fun, and I had a blast with the levels I played from others.

I have to encourage everyone to play this game. It is amazing and deserves attention.

Atooi sent out the following

 

Atooi announced that their new platforming adventure Chicken Wiggle will go on a special two-week flash sale from September 14 to September 28 – dropping the price from $14.99 to $9.99 in North America on Nintendo 3DS eShop. A savings of 33%. The two-week flash sale will begin in Europe on September 21.

“For anyone who was on the fence about buying Chicken Wiggle, this is a great time to take advantage of the promotional price and join our egg-cellent community,” Atooi Owner Jools Watsham says of the flash sale. “There are already over 400 unique levels available to download for free on-line, and the number continues to grow each day, which is a testament to the power and ease of Chicken Wiggle’s on-line level sharing features.”

Chicken Wiggle is an amazing game that everyone should try and this sale is one that is not to be missed.

 

We will have a review up of the game very shortly.

Hey, Nintendo Switch™ owners! Get ready to party like it’s 1987, because Thimbleweed Park is headed for the Nintendo eShop on September 21. How will you know if Thimbleweed Park is the game for you? Find out with this simple quiz:

  • Do you still feel guilty about microwaving a hamster in Maniac Mansion?
  • Would you know what to say if someone suggested that you fight like a dairy farmer?
  • Do you have no idea what those last two questions are about, but love stuff like Twin Peaks, the X-Files, Stranger Things, jokes, puzzles, and vacuum tubes?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, congratulations! Thimbleweed Park is the game for you!

 

The Nintendo Switch version will support both Joy-Con controllers and touch screen controls so you can easily switch between tabletop, handheld, and TV modes. The Nintendo eShop price will be $19.99, or equivalent in your local currency.

Okay, but what the heck *is* Thimbleweed Park?
Oh, you haven’t heard about this mystery / comedy game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the creators of classic adventures Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion? Well then, let’s set the scene:

October 15, 1987. A dead body is rotting under the bridge, but Thimbleweed Park’s 81 (sorry, make that 80) inhabitants have bigger concerns. The town’s founder also died recently, under mysterious circumstances. The air is buzzing with signals. The hotel appears to be haunted. A giant slice of pizza roams the streets. And something sinister is going on behind the locked gate of the abandoned PillowTronics™ factory — something that could consume us all.

Two federal agents, a washed-up insult clown, an aspiring game developer, and the ghost of a pillow salesman have been drawn to this weird, rundown place. They don’t know it yet, but they’re deeply connected — and they’re being watched. Switch* between them to explore the town, solve puzzles, and unravel the surreal mystery at the heart of it all. As you’ll see soon enough, in a town like Thimbleweed Park a dead body is the least of your problems.

*No pun intended.

 

Ron Gilbert was one of the great minds behind adventure games of the past. This return to the genre is great and to see it come to switch is amazing. Will you be getting it?

Nintendo sent out the following

 

Due to incredible demand for the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo plans to ship the retro-inspired product into 2018. Originally, shipments were announced to cease at the end of this calendar year.

In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves.

The Super NES Classic Edition system features 21 legendary Super NES games such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Launching on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of only $79.99, Super NES Classic Edition plugs directly into the TV using the provided HDMI cable, and comes with two wired controllers. For more information about Super NES Classic Edition, visit http://www.nintendo.com/super-nes-classic.

Next summer, Nintendo will also bring back the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system with new shipments. More information about the timing of the return of NES Classic Edition will be announced in the future.

 

This is amazing news. Nintendo has heard the demand for the NES and SNES minis and are taking steps to get the micro consoles to consumers. This is a nice change from how they usually do things. Will you be trying to get one?

RCMADIAX was one of the most prolific indie developers for the Wii U. However, with the system at the end of its life,  RCMADIAX is moving on.

 

The following tweet was sent out.

 

RCMADIAX had hit and miss games. Some were not good, but some like Super Robo Mouse were amazing. The games are cheap and if you are a Wii U owner, who wants something to play, you could do a lot worse.
