Nintendo and puzzle game developer Mitchell worked together on the Luxor-like video game Magnetica. The DS and WiiWare game had players flick marbles which disappear if you match three of the same color.

Replace "marbles" with "people" and that’s the base concept for Line Nageloop. In this 3DSWare game, you alternate between playing Grace and Savannah, two women who throw people in colored suits to clear them from the screen.

Line Nageloop has different situations like one level where you match people so you can erase them from a line. While you’re trying to shave seconds off your waiting time, groups of people will try to cut you in line. In another level you use the Nintendo 3DS’ gyroscope to aim a ninja you throw… into other ninjas. The game has different power-ups like a UFO that captures people wearing the same colored suit and giant balls that roll the line over. Line Nageloop is out now in Japan and it costs 700 yen ($9).
