NWR: The eShop has given some leeway for Nintendo to experiment with stranger games, and Dillon's Rolling Western is certainly unique. Rolling Western is an "action tower defense" game, combining the strategy of tower defense with components from 3D platform games and heavy stylus control.
Players play as Dillon, a silent ranger armadillo also known as "The Red Flash." Dillon is accompanied by a goofy squirrel who everyone thinks is a mouse. Particularly with Dillon's trademark spin attack, the pair is reminiscent of a Western Sonic and Tails. The two are hired by towns that need to protect their sheep-like scrogs from monstrous invaders called groks.
