Not one but two new pinball games are available to 3DS and DSi owners today. If pinball isn't your thing, Club Nintendo has put up new games that can be purchased with coins though you have until the end of January to get them before Club Nintendo changes their selection of titles for next month.
Zen Pinball 3D presents four different pinball tables, each with their own theme and unique gimmicks. Players can compete with friends by submitting scores to online leaderboards or taking turns by passing around the 3DS. DLC is planned to be released in the future. Worth $6.99 to purchase.
101 Pinball World's various tables use simple layouts that fill the top and touch screens. Power-ups will occasionally appear to help you earn a better score and you can save different sets of records using player profiles. Master Pinball World's tables for $4.99 / 500 DSi Points.
Hip Hop King: Rytmik Edition is a music creator featuring 170 samples to compose your own hip hop and rap tunes. Clips can be laid across four tracks and modified with volume, shuffle, polyphony, chorus, and echo effects. Worth $7.99 / 800 DSi Points to download.
Carmen Sandiego strikes again in Carmen Sandiego: The Case of the Crumbling Cathedral. Like the previous episode, the game presents puzzles covering various math topics (fractions, geometry) suited for children in fourth and fifth grade. Try your luck at recovering St. Basil's Cathedral for 600 Wii Points.
