The Nintendo Download brings Pushmo World to the Wii U

The cute little puzzler is among the many new releases onto the eShop this week.

A puzzle game where you push (hence the name) and pull blocks in order to make your way to the goal with the help of a little cartoony character, Pushmo originally started life on the 3DS and has now shoved his way into homes on the Wii U. Mario fans might want to check this one out too as there’s more than a little bit of Mushroom Kingdom vibe happening in the game.

Other than Pushmo, there’s a whole bunch of smaller releases this week, including some stuff that you’ve already seen released on other consoles and on the PC. How to Survive and Farming Simulator are probably names that you know and now you’ve got the chance to play them on your Wii U and 3DS respectively.

All in all, not  bad week as there’s a bunch of games and a few nice little sales (including one for Shin Megami Tensei IV) to keep you occupied as you try and stay out of the Summer swelter.
