Monday, December 30th, 2013

Released before Christmas this little gem from Japanese development house, Mechanic Arms was already wagging tongues in the Nintendo community before its release. Now, after swinging into the European and American Nintendo eShop, the results are in and it’s time to see how our latest title, Banana Bliss: Jungle Puzzles has fared.

One of the first reviews was by Darkain Arts  who emphasized that “Banana Bliss: Jungle Puzzles is a fun game to play and is a breeze to pick up play in short bursts. With SO many levels to play through in this game you can keep playing for long sessions or just grab a quick level in while you’re out an about. This game is great fun.” Overall it was scored a whooping 9/10!

NintendoLife described the action-puzzler as a “great entertainment; a good fit for the eShop” which is “easy to learn and challenging enough to keep you invested”, scoring it a superb 7/10.

Pure Nintendo’s Trevor Gould prasied the title scoring it 7.5/10 and adding that “I can also confidently say that this is a download that’s worth your time.  Banana Bliss Jungle Puzzles is another good puzzle platformer for 3DS.

More reviews followed suit, with Family Friendly Gaming scoring Banana Bliss: Jungle Puzzles an awesome 89/100 as well as First Comic News’ Matthew Szewczyk praising the game for its suitability for all ages adding that “I would not be surprised if my kids found this little gem installed on their 3DS systems on Christmas morning, Santa is with the times after all, and I think they would have a blast with it.
