Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle is a game with an interesting premise. You play as girls from the Touhou universe in a 3D fighter, spreading your bullet-hell projectiles across the stage while avoiding your enemy’s attacks.

Chicken Wiggle is the latest retro 2D platformer from the creator of Xeodrifter and Mutant Mudds. Both games are widely acclaimed as 3DS eShop gems. But did this game wiggle its way into my heart? Or did it crawl out of the earth, only to dry up like a worm on the sidewalk?
