Provided this is correct, Tennis will STILL be the only GB game I don't own a cart for in the eshop

...I'm so excited that I would gladly pay 4 dollars for this!

...No, um. Finally they do 2 games in one week and neither is anything interesting. This whole "withholding the big name first party stuff that would take nothing to release" thing is so STUPID. There's tons of amazing games they could be releasing.

Fortified Zone is actually fun. I actually have been playing it the last few days (how I shall never tell!) and its really a fun little game. Its short, but not short on fun! Its more or less an MGS/Zelda crossover, and with 4 "dungeons" to go through and cool bosses, its a game you would think would suck, but it isn't bad. If it wasn't so short, I'd totally recommend it. The 4 level complex is sad, but I think replayability is here as well, and this is a game totally made for speed runs. For $3 rather than $4 I think it'll be worth it, I'm just mad my wallet will have an outstanding $1...

Fortified Zone would be the second game aside from Tennis that I don't already own. How is it?

As I've stated, fun but short. It has a lot of great ideas in it, but sadly the game ends too quickly and leaves you wanting more areas. That said, its a fun ride with great graphics and just an overall great presentation. The switching characters mechanic is well done and it feels like you are really working as a team. From my time playing it today through "magic", I'd give it a 6/10 or as I like to say slightly above average. It has some great ideas, but the simple dungeon design and lack of levels kills the buzz this game has. However, for speed runs or low health runs (as it is optional to get hit point upgrades), you should get $3 worth of play.

And while I'm at it, might as well touch on Qix. In short, this game is going to be different for everyone. I love the concept of it, but the lack of game modes (only has arcade mode) almost kills the replayability. Its fun for 10 minutes but qixly (bad pun) becomes repetitive. It would've been nice of Nintendo to include a 2 player function by passing the 3DS around, because when you linked 2 QIX carts together, basically you and a buddy were taking turns taking one chunk out of the field. I know the 2P function because again I used "magic." Overall I give it a 5/10, does what it set out to do and nothing more except add Mario in a sombrero, which could very well be worth $3.

Hope I gave you guys some insight, I'm still unclear whether I'll ever end up with either game on my 3DS.
