Coming from Bernd Geiblinger of Bplus....

Bplus is currently developing two games - both will appear on Nintendo 3DS eShop 'til the end of 2014. Not an easy task, but the fun thing is, that my beloved pixel hero Kubi will make some kind of cameo appearance in both of them [=)]

Skylanders Trap Team - review

A portion of a Joystiq review...

You and your kids will still have plenty of fun with Trap Team, but it's weaker than last year's Swap Force, and its costly locked content sets an unfortunate precedent for future sequels. Broccoli Guy deserves better.
