This week’s Nintendo Download brings original titles like Siesta Fiesta and Wooden Sen’Sey, as well as a classic and fan favorite of many with Blaster Master.
One of my favorite games of all time on the NES, Blaster Master was something special when it launched way back when. The game features in and out of your vehicle play and plenty of shooting to do as you explore an underground world. Simply put, it’s great.
Be warned though, this is not the easiest of titles and definitely can try your patience at times… though, we are talking about an 8bit game here, so you probably could have guessed that. And other than Blaster Master, this week’s Nintendo Download also has a double dose of new titles with Siesta Fiesta and Wooden Sen’Sey.
Both games look to be of the simple-but-addictive variety and should satisfy those looking for a way to beat that Summer doldrums in this incredibly slow release month.
