Retry Level Spring Smash Tournament

It’s our first annual ‘Spring Smash Tournament’, hosted right here on Retry Level! We’re going to try to accommodate all registrants, but we can only guarantee spots to the first 20 just to be on the safe side. The 5 people after the cut-off is determined will be alternates in case of no-shows. First you need to go over and register so that you’re spot is locked in!


  • Stock battles with 3 stock
  • Items are disabled except for PokéBalls (a nod to our sister-site PokéJungle)
  • Time limit is set to 8 minutes
  • Omega Stages
  • No custom characters
  • Registration is limited to Wii U OR 3DS
  • Don’t be an asshole

If there are significant objections to the rules or cause for concern in the comments they may be changed in the future. Generally we’re adhering to the basic tournament rules as outlined here. Registration is open from today until JUNE 1ST at midnight PST. We’ll be finding winners for both the Wii U and 3DS versions. Looking forward to seeing you all in-game!

Winners will get eternal glory on both Retry Level and PokéJungle and possibly a yet-to-be-determined prize of no guarantee-able cash value 😉

Nintendo Reveals Their E3 Plans!

It’s been a long wait everyone, but we’re almost at that time of the year where E3 will soon be overdosing us with a lethal amount of gaming news and hopefully some reveals as well!

This year, Nintendo isn’t playing any games (see what I did there?) and threw us the ultimate throwback (too bad it’s not Thursday) in the form of the Nintendo World Championships, making its valiant return after a 25 year hiatus. Continue reading Nintendo Reveals Their E3 Plans!

Yooka-Laylee introduces new support character, Trowzer!

yooka-laylee-trowza-fullYooka-Laylee, a 3D platformer which has seen massive success on Kickstarter, has introduced a new character who will support you along your way. The shorts-wearing serpent Trowzer will offer to teach you moves between calls on his outdated cellphone (look… it doesn’t even have a touch screen!).

He’ll take your money and count it (he’s an Adder…) and because he knows best he’ll even demonstrate the moves you just bought for you to replicate… if you can follow his jiggling. – Gavin Price, Yooka-Laylee’s Creative Lead

It may be a stretch, but the character could be inspired by Death of a Salesman protagonist William “Willy” Loman; both seem to have had little success in the business world and both have names that are, ahem, slang for penis (willy, trouser snake).

What do you think? Certainly a clever way to dress a snake!
