SwitchArcade Spherical-Up: ‘Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia’, ‘EQI’, and In the present day’s Different New Releases and Gross sales


Hi there light readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for April twenty third, 2021. There are a number of new releases to take a look at as we shut out this busy week, but it surely’s a little bit of a step down from yesterday’s wild combine. Nonetheless some good video games to take a look at, although. We even have gross sales! Not so many gross sales as I anticipated, however gross sales nonetheless. Oh, and the flamboyant weekend outbox. Who doesn’t love that? Very thrilling, pals. We’d greatest get to it!

New Releases

Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia ($12.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

That is much less of a sport and extra of an interactive encyclopedia, however no matter you need to name it, it’s fairly cute. You play as just a little mouse who wanders across the sport world. Investigating issues brings up playing cards with details about them, with greater than 160 species of animals and vegetation to find throughout 4 completely different habitats. It’s each academic and type of a chill approach to spend a while. So long as you might be conscious of what you’re entering into, I believe Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia is admittedly neat.

Dungholes ($9.99)

The thought on this top-down motion sport is that you simply’re operating round lethal dungeon flooring attempting to seize diamonds together with keys for locked doorways. The ground will usually fall out from beneath you, and there are traps in every single place. Quite simple, however the frantic motion works. There are greater than 60 ranges to clear, and doing so will take a good bit of talent and the occasional stroke of luck. Unsure I like the thought of operating round retrieving diamonds from poo-tunnels, however I suppose if it was ok for Lunar, it ought to be ok right here.

Grandmaster Sudoku ($4.99)

No help for docked mode for this one, it appears. Properly, it’s simply one other sudoku sport anyway. You get just a little character named Dakota Jane who offers a sliver of context for the proceedings, but it surely’s the identical previous sudoku when you get into it. You realize it, chances are you’ll effectively like it, and if this is the case, you in all probability already personal a few video games prefer it. There are 4 issue ranges right here for the puzzles, and some optionally available bells and whistles you need to use to reinforce your expertise. That’s about it.

EQI ($4.99)

Within the battle of the cheapies at this time, EQI is the winner so far as I’m involved. It is a first-person sport the place you discover extraordinarily trippy environments in additional than twenty levels, twisting the world round you and fixing spatial puzzles to open the trail ahead. It’s a extremely quick sport, however the presentation is so wild that it’s price taking the experience. Now, I’ll grant that the rotation mechanic generally is a bit problematic and the sport generally doesn’t offer you a lot margin for error, however given its size I believe it may get away with a couple of points like that.

Useless Mud ($4.99)

They went and copy-pasted their textual content twice within the store description. It’s a Wild West-themed top-down shooter the place you’re taking part in as a bounty hunter who’s attempting to rescue a wealthy man’s daughter. To do this, you’ll need to tackle bandits, homicide a whole lot of Native People, and even shoot it out with area aliens. Acquire loot from the bloody corpses of your victims and use to purchase new tools that can enable you proceed your reign of terror. It has obscure similarities to video games like Enter the Gungeon or Nuclear Throne, besides it’s type of horrible.

Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew ($4.99)

Alright, credit score the place it’s due: wonderful job on the alliterative title, everybody. That’s the great things. It is a comedic point-and-click fashion journey sport a couple of detective looking for the tomb of a long-dead pirate. It’s wonderful sufficient, although not notably improbable by the requirements of the style. Essentially the most outstanding factor about it’s that you simply get a megaphone early on that’s used for one puzzle, however can be utilized on each NPC within the sport to get a definite response. It’ll offer you no less than a couple of hours of enjoyable, and for the worth I believe that’s sufficient.

Moon Raider ($9.99)

Common readers of the location could bear in mind Moon Raider from its cellular launch by Crescent Moon Video games. Developed by Cascadia Video games, it’s an honest little Metroidvania-style sport with some cute visuals. It takes a few hours to run by and it doesn’t supply a complete lot of resistance as you make your approach to the top, which can be a turn-off for some. It’s okay. I actually don’t know what extra to say about it than that. If there weren’t already a complete bunch of improbable Metroidvanias on the Change, it’s one thing I’d even nudge an individual in the direction of. However within the context of the present market, it’s simply so middle-of-the-road in each respect that I’ve bother mustering up any robust emotions for it.

The Skylia Prophecy ($6.99)

I discover myself instantly cautious of video games which might be so closely impressed by the Souls video games that they really feel the necessity to point out it of their descriptions. It’s a type of crimson flags, like saying your sport is impressed by Earthbound. In the event you actually obtained it proper, you in all probability wouldn’t must say it. Far too usually, what video games imply once they say they’re impressed by the Souls video games is that they’re actually troublesome. And certainly, The Skylia Prophecy is that. The controls are strong however the best way the enemies and hazards are laid out make issues very disagreeable for these with out appreciable endurance and timing. The value is pretty affordable, so those that relish being overwhelmed concerning the head with their very own severed arms (figuratively talking) can get in on this with out breaking the piggy financial institution.

Dungeon and Headstone ($24.99)

This one comes from the folks behind BQM: Block Quest Maker, and it type of seems the half. Dungeon and Headstone is a roguelite action-RPG, and it appears to be a reasonably competent one. Though it’s grid-based, enemies and traps seem to maneuver in real-time so you could assume and transfer shortly. There are greater than 500 quests to finish, numerous loot to seek out, and a few aspect actions like fishing. It’s a really substantial sport, one which rewards the participant that’s prepared to place within the time to study its quirks. That mentioned, this value places it dangerously near Shiren the Wanderer city, and whereas it’s pleasant for what it’s, it’s not fairly Shiren-good. If in case you have a passion for Japanese-style roguelikes, you’ll want to no less than put this in your wishlist for when it goes on sale.

Home Cleansing Survival ($23.99)

Hey, it’s a model new sport from the writer that introduced us Blaster Grasp, Batman for the NES, Journey to Silius, Ufouria: The Saga, and plenty of extra. And it’s not simply one other mahjong solitaire sport this time! However it’s additionally not the type of sport you’d in all probability affiliate with Sunsoft, both. You must use your cleansing tools to maintain some really nasty messes in a wide range of rooms. Critically, is that… is that poo on the partitions, Sunsoft? Geez. Anyway, you hose issues down, decide up trash, wash dishes, do laundry, and usually clear up till the homes are good and clear. It doesn’t seem to be it will be very enjoyable, however I suppose there’s a “zen backyard” feeling to creating these foul areas sparkle once more.

Gross sales

(North American eShop, US Costs)

Wow, solely 100 new gross sales at this time? I suppose the eShop feels dangerous for me after final week’s utter nonsense. Some highlights from at this time: Tangledeep, the roguelike deal with. Kuukiyomi 2, for individuals who must study necessary social expertise. 20XX, for individuals who get pleasure from each the operating and the gunning. And within the weekend outbox? Some actually good indies, really. I do know the weekend outbox is usually boring, however you actually ought to give it a cautious look this time.
