Best 3DS eShop games

Comment on site articles.

The best 3D games available to download - includes two new entries!

The 3DS eShop is home to some excellent games. Take Pullblox, a puzzler from the developer of Advance Wars, Paper Mario and Fire Emblem. Released in December, it is so good that we would happily have parted with £20 for it but you can download it from the eShop for £5.40. So if you have some spare cash and fancy downloading a budget game to play on the move, here are the best 3DS eShop games.

I just downloaded Pullblox on Boxing Day and I have to say it's brilliant! Mighty Switch Force is next on the list!

I absolutely loved Mighty Switch Force. I really hope WayForward take it and exand it with loads of levels and bonus challanges to make a Gold Award worthy sequal.

Good to see 3D classics Excitebike and Kid Icarius on this list. Both are great games with really good 3D.

I really disagree... Pullblox is annoyingly hard and just the same all the way through. I gave up on it because of this... It's not even challenging in any necessarily clever way - it's purely just to be difficult.

I bought Pullblox a few weeks ago because ONM kept going on about it. What can I say? You guys were right! Totally worth forgoing a couple of pints to afford!

@Birdy1994: That's the reason I just registered. Mutant Mudds should definitely be on this list if not at the top. VVVVVV is another fine addition as well as Zen Pinball.

Pushmo/Pullblox is a quality game, but I couldn't get into it.

Well, it hasn't been released in the UK yet, nor has VVVVVV. We are the Official Nintendo Magazine UK and this is a list of the best games available in this country.

I can't find the link, but nintendolife said that mighty switch force would get an update for more levels. Don't have the game myself.

other than freaky forms (which if it weren't made by nintendo i doubt would have gotten the score it did) i'd have to agree with this.

@noobgamer9: Wow, that's great news! MSF was utterly brilliant, it's only downside being its brevity.

Checks out.
Mighty Switch Force will be getting an update that improves the 3D effect (which I thought was great anyway), adds a retry button the Pause menu (which doesn't sound like much, but to anyone who's played it this is a godsend), and five new levels, bringing the total to 21 levels. I would have liked them to have added at least ten new levels, but beggers can't be choosers. Stilll, this could also mean a possibility that there will be other updates in the feature.
Oh yeah, and the update is free. Nice.

I agree with most of this list i think i spent most time Playing kirby 3d. Mighty switch force is good and nice to hear bout free update, freaky forms got boring but im impressed with some i got via streetpass.
