Vengeance: Bloktonik wreaks havoc on the iPad

A sample 3D screenshot for Bit.Trip Saga

Gaijin Games is at the top of my "do-want 3DS games" list with Bit.Trip Saga. The series was remarkably fun on Wii, again on PC, and should continue to be a joy in handheld form. It's almost too perfect a fit for the 3DS, which is why I'm s...
