Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition (WB Games, €19.99 / £15.99) — This is an enhanced HD port of the 3DS original, a 2.5D action game that borrows elements from the 3D games and serves up a story that follows on from Batman: Arkham Origins.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29) — While some may expect any 2D platforming Kirby title to follow a set formula, this GBA entry does experiment a fair amount. There are elements of exploration and backtracking, along with three extra Kirby characters that can be summoned on a cellphone; rather than simply getting from A to B, you're expected to seek out secrets and find hidden exits.
WarioWare, Inc.: Minigame Mania (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29) — Wario has starred in some excellent 2D action platformers, but some know him as the master of wacky, quick-fire minigames. This GBA entry delivered just that, as you progress through a whole lot of breathless, bonkers minigames for the simple purpose of having fun.

Governor of Poker (Teyon, €4.99 / £4.49) — This is the latest download from the prolific Teyon, and a port of a previous release on PC, Mac, Facebook, Android and iOS. As the title suggests you play and win in poker matches while working through the challenge of using winnings to buy resources and, eventually, towns in order to take over Texas.
Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst (MSL, €11.99 / £10.79) — This hidden-object game was originally released at retail in Europe in 2013, which is a port of a DS title which is a port of a PC release. That aside, while the genre is popular this title isn't top of its class, doing a competent job with some flaws dragging particular areas down.
Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove (MSL, €11.99 / £10.79) — We anticipate this'll be similar to the Ravenhearst entry, albeit with a new setting and plot.
