-| It's Animal Crossing. Has what I call in my head 'adult modes',​ where you can set a town '​ordinance'​ to do things like make shops stay open later or make flowers not die without watering. Animals don't seem to get grumpy or sad much anymore, and it's very easy to not have a fave animal move out of town. Hell, if there'​s a particular ​anima you want you can buy an Amiibo Card and have them move right in too. The fish jokes got lazy though. ||+| It'​s ​//​[[..:​animal_crossing_series|Animal Crossing]]//.

 +^ //Chain Blaster// ''​[demo]''​ | |
 +| The demo's really short but it seems kinda neat. There'​s a mechanical //hook//, where you time a single shot that will wipe-out a line of enemies. Like how in some shooters you can shoot the leader of a group and it will destroy all of them |

 | A brisk, chill little action game. Progression is gated by character level, but doesn'​t feel too grindy. Some of the puzzles are cute twists on the expected. The last boss is a bit of a surprising difficulty spike. And it's only a couple of bucks. || | A brisk, chill little action game.

 +| Really enjoying this. Became interested because it's supposedly a new-ish //​[[..:​fire_emblem_series|Fire Emblem]]// without all the datey stuff, and that's mostly right. It's a remake of the second game in the series, and following //de facto// practice of the time it's a bit of an odd entry for the series, so also appealing for that reason! I saw complaints that the maps are too big and other stuff, but none of that bothered me. I do kinda prefer small, more puzzle-like maps though. ||

 +^ //​[[..:​Miitopia]]//​ | | 
 +| A cute, breezy little RPG thing where you fill all the characters with [[form:​Mii]]s (But you'll need a lot of them if you don't want to rely on ones other people have uploaded). I like it a bunch, but I'm a sucker for Mii-centric games really. There'​s a demo that give you a pretty good idea of things. ||

 | Kinda fun! Easy enough to avoid the combat, but there are some cool mechanisms in there. Demo gives you a good enough portion of the game. || | Kinda fun! Easy enough to avoid the combat, but there are some cool mechanisms in there. Demo gives you a good enough portion of the game. ||

 | A charming, simplified football management sim. The main appeal for me are the cute graphics in the replays. They have lots of nice little animations, and the games have a pretty good flow! Though the offside calls are WAY too strict.\\ The English version was only released in [[..:​kind:​pal_zone|PAL ZONE]], though there is a Japan-only, GBA version available, which should be pretty playable as everything important is communicated with icons. No functioning online mode on the GBA though! || | A charming, simplified football management sim. The main appeal for me are the cute graphics in the replays.
