Nintendo eShop update - 06/10/11

Catrap! Extreme Hangaman! Trenches!

Time-rewinding Game Boy platformer Catrap, wordy puzzler Extreme Hangman 2 and Trenches: Generals arrive on the Nintendo eShop this Thursday.

After last week's Mario and Zelda-filled update, the latest offerings are a little more obscure.

Catrap, also known as Pitman, was released on the Game Boy in 1990. It arrives on 3DS this week via the handheld's Virtual Console.

A puzzle-solving platformer, Catrap is credited as being the first title to use time-rewinding gameplay, later found in games such as Blinx and Prince of Persia.

Extreme Hangman 2 for DSiWare boasts over 3000 words in 14 new categories, and we really can't find anything more to say about it.

Trenches: Generals meanwhile is a tower defence title for WiiWare. It's an update of the iOS original, where players must help the British Army beat the Germans.

It released in the USA last month for 700 Wii Points (about £4.50) and has apparently avoided the same naming problems that temporarily scuppered the release of Double Fine's Trenched.
