Moonlighter, Golf Story, The Messenger, Transistor, Bastion, Steamworld games (yes, all of them), Gris, Cat Quest, Shakedown Hawaii, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Assassin’s Creed 3, Yoku’s Island Express, Katana Zero, HellBlade. All amazing games I urge you to look at if you haven’t already. That out of the way, here are some hot picks from the sale.
A great little action platformer, De Blob 2 is a colourful sequel with some built in 2d sections. A good discount for a adventure which should take around 11 hours to complete.
A 2d platformer similar in vein to the Wonderboy genre of old, this retro pixel adventure will give you a sense of accomplishment when you complete it, drawing on the diffculty of old.
Building upon Assassin’s Creed 3 coming to switch, Black Flag and Rogue are an amazing addition to the Switch library. 30 hours of gameplay across the two titles, in these incredibly playable ports. Definite value for money
A really lovely and captivating RPG from Ubisoft. A fairytale story with a beasutiful art style perfectly matching the story, this 11 hour game really is a highlight on the switch (I’ve even completed it!). The dialogue is poetic and the characters you meet and partner with along the way really do capture the imagination.
After being showcased in some of Nintendo’s directs, this epic 2d endless runner platformer about a dragon apocalypse is a love letter to classic arcade games with a beautiful art style to boot.
A clever story in a dark, gripping horror game, this is a beautiful adventure with puzzles and secrets to be explored. One heavily recommended by the one and only DoctorFact
If you’re not willing to drop 14.99 on the gold edition, you at least have to get the standard. This game collides two unlikely worlds together in a funny and incredibly playable turn based tactics game.
A top class first-person shooter / survival horror game which has been ported magnificently to Switch. It offers more story telling than your average first person shooter, which has to be a plus right?
Who doesn’t like a good collection of classics. This contains PAC-MAN, Galaga, Splatterhouse, Rolling Thunder, Skyrid and TankForce. Much better at this 67% off price.
Switch Stance brings Olliolli 1 and 2 to switch, giving you some great arcade skateboarding action, with tricks galore to rack up those perfect scores.
In my opinion on of the best platformers on the switch. This title gives you plenty to unlock, while giving you some slick platforming action along the way. I was particularly impressed on the variation in level type, bringing in. lots of cool level designs and character mechanics without it ever feeling overwhelming. One all platform players should have in their collection.
A punchy little 2d action platformer with a musical spin, where you play as a birb. Enough said really. A bargain at this price.
Amazing how the Steamworld games reinvent themselves all the time, but always deliver. This title sees the game deliver an RPG with a card based combat system. As always, charm and clever dialogue are there for a great game.
One to try at this price, this game brings you an award winning prison break simulation where you have to master the routine of the prison in order to plan and execute your escape to precision.
If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember LucasArts and the amazing Secret’s of Monkey Island. Thimbleweed park is a pixel perfect point of click adventure of the same ilk, delivering clever dialogue and many pop culture references. A great adventure to go on.
Shockingly, another game I’ve completed, but most importantly absolutely loved. This 2d puzzler is set to a background of war, and while you play away through this adventure, the stories of the intertwining characters as they deal with whats around them pull you in without you noticing, investing you into the stories. I also enjoyed how throughout the game you could also learn about the true history of the time, the developers allowing you to chose to stay and read, not pushing it on the player. A great puzzler with a truly emotional end.
A top notch beat-em-up for the switch, inspired by the old arcade classics with challenging AI and a pleasing cartoon art style. Plus you get to smash some Romans. I mean, what have they ever done for us anyways?
