This week’s batch of games will keep you full for a while – or until next week when more games come out!

3DS eShop
Marvel Pinball 3D (Zen Studios, $7.99)

The wizards of pinball are back with another slice of pinball for your 3DS. This title gives players four Marvel-themed tables and continues Zen Studio’s dedication to creating fun and realistic pinball games. Stay tuned for our review later today.

Bomb Monkey (Renegade Kid, $4.99)

The makers of Mutants Mudd have combined monkeys, bombs, and puzzles to give us a quirky action puzzler. Bomb Monkey even lets you play with someone else using the same 3DS.

Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure (Sega, DEMO)

Rhythm Thief is a game filled with intrigue and mystery, but it also involves tapping your stylus to the beat of the music. How can those two things go together so well? Play the demo and find out!

Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] (Square Enix, DEMO)

Sora and Riku are sent into the Sleeping Worlds to prove their skills as true Keyblade Masters. Along the way, they’ll not only encounter creatures called Dream Eaters befriend and tame, but they will also have to prove their skills against a number of tough enemies.

DSiWare
Flip the Core (Engine Software, $1.99/200 pts)

Flip the Core may look like a classic shoot ’em up title, but once you reach a dead-end and realize you’re stuck, you’ll need to press a button to flip your environment and open the way forward.

Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival (Teyon, $1.99/200 pts)

This game will have you collecting pieces of DNA and building the largest chain possible. It looks a bit like the arcade classic Snake, but it also has several different gameplay modes and features like vaccines and rocket launchers to make it stand out.

Game of the Weekend
VVVVVV (Nicalis, $4.99)

Each week, Nintendo will be making select games available at a discount. The first game to kick off Nintendo’s Game of the Weekend promotion is VVVVVV, a unique platformer inspired by the retro classics of yesterday. If you have yet to play it, this weekend is a great time to get it!
