3DS eShop games enjoy no success, and developers are idiots for putting their games on the service. While fun to say, the previous statement isn't always true, as evidenced by news that Gunman Clive on 3DS has surpassed sales of both its iOS and Android alternatives. 

Gunman Clive beat the iOS version a while ago, and today developer Bertil Hörberg confirmed defeat of the Android one. In a world where mobile game devices are said to be eating into the dedicated gaming handheld space, it's certainly interesting to see an eShop game step ahead of the pack. 

I wish the game well in every respect. I have the iOS version myself, and I love it -- even if I switch it off after five minutes in an angry huff after some cowboy bastard leathered me. It's a great throwback game, putting me in mind of Shinobi with stetsons. Worth checking out, whatever your platform of choice.

Gunman Clive now has an update for those nasty crashes

Gunman Clive is one of the best games on the 3DS eShop. I really enjoyed my time with it (especially with the secret character), and for just a few bucks, it's a complete steal. At the same time, it did have a few major glitc...more

Review: The Art of Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation has received a lot of praise over its faithful recreation of the original film's lo-fi take on science fiction. "Truckers in space" was the aesthetic director Ridley Scott set out to capture and the decks and...more

Review: The Evil Within

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game...more

Review: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

In the world of Senran Kagura, excess is the rule. The outfits are skimpy, the plot threads are ludicrous, and the breasts are laughably large, so huge in fact that you wonder how the skimpy bras the girls are eventually stri...more
