The Nintendo Download – 11/29/12

An incredibly small Nintendo Download this week, especially after the avalanche of titles which came out last week (most of which were downloadable Wii U retail titles, but nonetheless). What’s more, it’s all for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi– no Wii or Wii U to be found. So here’s what’s available this week in quick order.

From the combined forces of LEVEL-5 & Yoot Saito comes a game which looks like it would be at home on Facebook or an iOS device: Aero Porter, an airport simulation and puzzle game. For $4.99, you can experience the thrills of sorting luggage, avoiding security mishaps, and expanding your operations.

The NES version of the arcade classic Pac-Man from Namco comes to the Nintendo 3DS eShop for $4.99. This game is so iconic, it’s difficult to say anything about it that isn’t already widely known.

Invasion of the Alien Blobs! is available on both Nintendo DSiWare and the Nintendo 3DS eShop for 200 DSi Points or $1.99, respectively. Using your stylus, you can fend off ten-second waves of alien attacks by squishing them.

Finally (yes, this is it), there is Bloons TD 4, aka “Bloons Tower Defense” for Nintendo DSiWare and the Nintendo 3DS eShop at 500 Points/$4.99. This is a tower defense game which features monkeys and “bloon” popping action.

That is well and truly it for this week– well, save for one thing, but that’s getting its own article. To find more screens, videos, and information on each of this week’s releases, click each of the relevant links above.
