Nintendo Life wrote that “[its] strengths lie in its simple combat which manages to stave off repetition, the array of weapon types, and the diversity of ways players can tackle each dungeon. (…) the journey is still mechanically engaging and definitely worth the effort, especially if you’re a newcomer to the dungeon crawler genre, have a little extra cash, or both.”

Shigeru Reviews scored the game 8.5 out of 10 and praised Excave as “a great proposal with all the elements of a classic dungeon crawler (…) [it] will keep you entertained for a long time trying to find all the secrets the Labyrinth possess. (…) [It] is a worthy inclusion on the 3ds library and well spent cash IMO.”

Nerdbacon was really impressed with the title and called “Excave to be one of the best eShop games I’ve played.”

Pokemon Battle Zone pointed out that the best features of Excave are “awesome music, a lot of floors to explore, enemies to defeat and items to find, it’s a game that’s well worth the $5 asking price.”

But the positive reviews don’t end there! Darkain Arts Gamers summed up – “If dungeon exploration games are you kind of thing, or if the game has peaked your interest, you should definitely take a look.”

Overall, it looks like Excave has won fame & fortune among players and hopefully will return to the platform with new installments.

The team at NintendoLife was very pleased with the game. Morgan Sleeper wrote that “not only is it a fantastic example of a remake done right, with a polished presentation that feels right at home on the 3DS, it also stands as a great modern game in its own right”. In conclusion Steel Empire “is a blast” and gets an impressive score of 9!

PureNintendo pointed out that “Steel Empire makes for a highly entertaining 3DS download!  (…) It deserves to succeed even more now due to the lack of shooters being made – when originally released the market was bloated with such games!”. The reviewer advises to “consider this a must buy for shooter fans” and rates the game with 8.5.

Destructoid summed up that ”[the game] looks, sounds, and feels great on the 3DS, and is a natural fit for Nintendo’s portable. The 3D effect is more pronounced than many other eShop games, and the user interface is wonderfully minimal. The same could be said about the retro soundtrack, which is phenomenal.” Chris Carter gave the game 8/10 and his recommendation by saying “[it] is worth your time and cash”.

Eric from 3DSpedia.com also praised the game: ”Amazing gameplay, great replay value, excellent remastering work and a premium presentation is the best way to define Steel Empire, where I can easily recommend it to any fan of the genre.” Zack from MyGamer admitted: “I honestly have not had this much fun with a 2D shooter in a long time.” And Garrett from Wii’s World called Steel Empire ”undoubtedly a well-crafted game that any fan of this genre should give a shot.”

SkaterCat milestone Skater Cat in review!

Nintendo World Report praised Skater Cat for “interesting things to take advantage of the features of the 3DS. Being able to play as your Mii is a nice touch especially from a third party eShop title. Also, level times can be swapped over StreetPass which should add replay time to those who are able to find StreetPasses“.

Family Friendly Gaming scored the game 78/100 and pointed out that it’s a good fit for “families interested in parkour runners (…) Especially if your family members have problems playing the other parkour runners. Skater Cat is much easier”.

CGR Undertow liked that “the controls are tight, the game-play is responsive (…) game actually looks pretty nice“.

Peter Wilington from PocketGamer described the title as “definitely fun” and “good enough to be worth a recommendation“.

And Jason Clement from GamePodunk was pleased with the game stating that “Skater Cat is a cute game that is fun in short bursts“.

Overall, it looks like Skater Cat is purring with excitement!
