Fortified Zone (Jaleco/$3.99/3DS)

To fight the enemies and destroy their base, teamwork is a must.

Originally released in 1991, this popular action game allows two characters to be used alternately. Now making its debut on the Nintendo eShop, Fortified Zone brings four multi-room levels of heavy fire and explosions, as well as the "Sound Boy" mode that lets you listen to the music tracks outside of the action. Enemy forces have created a gigantic fortress in a critical zone, and reports indicate that they are developing a powerful secret weapon. Secret agents Masato Kanzaki and Mizuki Makimura have been dispatched to infiltrate the fortress and venture to the heart of the complex to destroy it. Masato and Mizuki have their own unique abilities, and they will need to tag-team in order to breach the enemies' defenses.

Qix (Nintendo/$2.99/Nintendo eShop)

Twisting pix with clever tricks – that's the challenge of Qix.

Your objective is to claim as much of the screen as possible. However, Qix will try to disrupt you at every turn by rotating, stretching, shortening and changing directions. It's sneaky, it's snaky, it's an unpredictable energy field.

Qix will try to catch your diamond cursor before you can complete a box. Once the box is complete, you've taken over that part of the screen. But watch out for the moving Sparx and the Fuse. If they catch you, the game will be over in an instant.

To complete a level, claim 75 percent or more of the screen. With more enemies to dodge, each level will be more difficult than the last.
