Nintendo’s second collection of its legendary Game & Watch LCD machines is the big name offering on the 3DS eShop this week, with the feline-friendly puzzler Cat Frenzy acting as DSi Ware pick of the week.
Game & Watch Gallery 2 brings together some classic 80s LCD games that this particular author remembers from his childhood days, including the first ever widescreen offering, Parachute (1981), as well as the almost literal spinning plates antics of Chef (1981).
The big draw of the collection, however, has to be Donkey Kong (1982), which sees a character called Jumpman/Mario (who he?) attempt to rescue a princess from the clutches of the titular big ape by leaping over barrels.
Game & Watch Gallery 2 will be priced at £3.60 / €4.
Here, kitty kitty
Also out for the 3DS (and the DSi) this week is Teyon’s Cat Frenzy, a puzzle game that sees you sliding and matching furry mammals to set them free from a well (don’t ask).
There are over 100 levels to slip your way through, as well as lots of annoying ‘mew’ing. Cat lovers will probably like the latter part.
Cat Frenzy is both a eShop and DSi Shop game, and will be available for £1.80/ €2.
