 ARRIVES April 18th 2013

MINNEAPOLIS – April 16, 2013 – Big John Games bids a loving farewell to DSiWare™ with an enjoyable platformer Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever.  Rivet Retriever joins Big John Games’ portfolio of successful DSiWare titles such as Thorium Wars, Big Bass Arcade, Fantasy Slots, and Spot It! “As we move forward by developing games for the Nintendo 3DStm and Wii Utm,” Ken Patterson, President of Big John Games stated.  “we wanted our final DSiWare game to be a fun, affordable platforming experience that Nintendo fans would really enjoy. The exciting gameplay of Rivet Retriever is our way of saying ‘so long’ to the DSiWare platform.” Building the latest construction project requires teamwork, quick reflexes, and dogged determination! Working Dawg Mac has his paws on the rivet gun to fasten the beams together, but he needs a steady supply of rivets to finish the job. It’s up to you to guide the main character Ace to retrieve enough of the rivets scattered across each construction site and deliver them to Mac before time expires. This is no simple game of fetch for Ace. Birds, bees, and cats are causing the Working Dawgs trouble, and Ace will have to evade, jump, or spin-attack them out of his way. Every missed jump or animal attack will spill rivets from Ace’s bucket. Other moving obstacles on the construction site can be trouble for Ace and his bucket of rivets, too. So watch your step up high on the beams! Rivet Retriever features 20 levels to challenge even the best trained Working Dawg. Complete each level once to advance, then come back and play again to find more rivets, set new best times, and earn Best in Show scores.

Big John Games is committed to digital downloading on Nintendo platforms (Coaster Creator 3D, Big Bass Arcade: No Limit) on the Nintendo 3DS in the Nintendo eShop as well as future titles on the Wii U in the Nintendo eShop.

Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever is rated E for Everyone and will be available for download from the Nintendo DSiWare™ service for 200 Nintendo DSi Points™, and in the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS™ for $1.99.

About The Author
Jeremy Hardin
Jeremy's love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80's when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he'll answer, "the day I beat Zelda 2." To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers. Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
