Following on from Let's Golf 3D, this puzzling platformer is just the second original download that's available for 3DS. Yet it would have worked as well on DSi as the 3D effect adds nothing - which is a shame, as it's the first thing you notice in what is a cracking little game.
Pyramids is like an old-school platformer as it all plays out on a single screen. Playing as an adventurer, you have to grab a key (and hopefully some treasure) before making it to the door.
Although you can blow things up with TNT and use bullets to shoot snakes, it is all about creating and destroying blocks in order to create a route to the exit.
The aim is to collect all the treasure and make it to the door before the time runs out, and although you can clear the level with just the key, you'll need treasure to unlock later levels when it gets really tough.
The only annoyance is that it takes so long to restart a level, especially when it's so easy to fail. So forget the 3D - this is everything a good puzzle game should be. Simple to play, addictive, challenging and a little bit frustrating.
