There might not have even been a Nintendo Download post today if not for the brave efforts of Pushmo, Intelligent Systems' endlessly entertaining block jumping game for the Nintendo 3DS. The rest of this week's games can go straight to hell.

With the big Nintendo 3DS system update dropping on Tuesday I really wasn't expecting much in the way of quality downloadable titles out of Nintendo this week, so the appearance of Intelligent Systems' Pushmo comes as a pleasant surprise. Bright, colorful, and full of personality, Pushmo not only features more than 200 challenging block pushing and jumping puzzles, it also comes packed with a puzzle creator, letting players create and share their own levels.

Other than that, there's not much here really. The only other title that really stands out is Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder, and that's only because the official description labels it the "worst game ever". That's not something I'm in a rush to verify.


Here we go, kids!
