First look at Renegade Kid's Treasurenauts in motion


10:00 PM on 10.02.2013



Renegade Kid's Treasurenauts looks like another great match for the 3DS eShop. And, more than that, like exactly the type of game that this team knows how to craft. There's a strange joy to be had in collecting a bunch of stuff in games, and Treasurenauts seems to have that panicked "Oh sh*t! I need to hurry!" angle (see: Sonic the Hedgehog) going for it.

Speaking of which, I could never finish Kirby's Epic Yarn. Not because it was too easy -- far from it, actually. Even though you couldn't "lose" in the traditional sense, getting hit would send gems flying every which way. And after a point, my collectible-obsessed self couldn't handle completing levels without that damned gem bar maxed out. Silly, right? I agree.

Hope that won't prevent me from liking this game, because it looks right up my alley.
