SwitchArcade Spherical-Up: Mini-Views That includes ‘Dragon Audit’, ‘FEZ’, and Extra, Plus the Newest Releases and Gross sales


Whats up mild readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for April twenty sixth, 2021. In at the moment’s article, we’ve acquired a brand new batch of Mini-Views so that you can take pleasure in. The Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack, FEZ, Dragon Audit, and Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion all get their turns within the teeny-tiny sizzling seat. We additionally check out the only new launch of the day, together with the same old lists of incoming and outgoing gross sales. Let’s get going!


Dragon Audit ($9.99)

Dragon Audit may be very quick. The graphics are actually tough. There are solely a handful of puzzles within the recreation, and none of them are that difficult. There are just a few mini-games, however they’re transient and generally unwelcome. It’s not arduous to assume there have been far higher ambitions right here that merely couldn’t be realized, notably if you hit the ending. An entire bunch of story scenes fly by that really feel like they need to have been a part of playable sequences, however they’re simply an all-too-fast wrap-up to convey the plot to some form of conclusion. It feels so… unsatisfying.

Dragon Audit may be very charming. The small solid of characters is likable, and the writing is de facto good. It’s genuinely humorous, but additionally fairly heartwarming in locations. Whereas the plot focuses on the connection between the auditor and the dragon, there are many hints on the higher world and occasions which have taken place in it. Whereas the puzzles are easy, they’re not troublesome. There are just a few non-obligatory achievements to finish that make it enjoyable to poke at issues off the overwhelmed path. Even the roughness of the visuals is form of endearing. Whereas the hour or so of leisure you get right here isn’t going to be well worth the asking worth for everybody, I don’t remorse choosing it up and taking part in it.

Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack ($89.99)

With this launch, the Change has in all probability seen as a lot of the Atelier again catalog as it’s going to. Nonetheless, it’s somewhat spectacular to have so many installments on this line of quirky, cute RPGs out there on the platform. Whereas the Mysterious Trilogy doesn’t have the cachet with long-time followers that the Arland collection does, nor the break-out recognition of the Ryza video games, there’s loads of fluffy enjoyable available with any of those three video games. The story begins with Sophie and runs via Lydie & Suelle, however every recreation could be loved by itself deserves. For these not keen on the time restrict in among the video games, each Sophie and Lydie & Suelle don’t use it whereas Firis follows the extra orthodox route of requiring cautious time administration. All video games characteristic enjoyably complicated crafting programs and respectable, although not spectacular, turn-based battle programs.

One curiosity side of this explicit launch is that this isn’t the primary time Atelier Lydie & Suelle has come to the Change. Whilst you would possibly assume this launch wouldn’t differ terribly from that first one, it’s really significantly improved. That’s factor, as that was a reasonably tough port in a variety of methods. Is it improved sufficient to suggest it should you already personal the primary launch? Properly, in all probability not. However the entire video games do embody many of the paid DLC out there for the unique variations, so should you selected to not dip into that specific effectively (and need to) you could discover it higher to purchase the entire recreation right here as an alternative. In my view, the video games on this trilogy get a little bit higher with every installment, however they kind of fall into the identical ballpark of high quality. Maybe much less accessible than the Ryza video games, however effectively price diving into for RPG followers.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion ($14.99)

Do you want meme humor? Mild takes on the Zelda formulation? Fetch quests? When you, you’ll love Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion. It has a goofy tone proper from the beginning and runs with it all through. When you don’t like memes or absurd jokes, you’re going to have a foul time. Surprisingly, it’s not simply humor. There’s a strong action-adventure right here to take pleasure in behind all of the jokes about taxes and YouTubers. The controls really feel good, and also you get an fulfilling unfold of latest objects and talents as you go alongside. Whereas the core of the sport entails going into areas and fixing mild puzzles, there are additionally an entire bunch of side-quests that really feel like they got here out of an older RPG. Go there and get this. Convey it over to this man. You know the way it really works. You get a joke in your hassle normally, so it’s not as dangerous because it could possibly be.

By way of presentation, the sport has a pleasant cartoony look to it with respectable animations. The characters have easy designs, however they’re fairly distinct and amusing. The wild collection of unusual folks you meet in your quest will make you giggle or generally disturb you, however the one factor they aren’t is forgettable. The goofy tone helps preserve issues shifting alongside at a pleasant tempo, however the gameplay itself is respectable sufficient even when it didn’t have that going for it. Actually, the one motive to keep away from this recreation is should you don’t like Zelda-style video games or can’t take care of a recreation that may’t cease cracking jokes for even a split-second. Through which case, I’m unsure why you’re even a recreation known as Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion.

FEZ ($14.99)

Crucial factor I can say right here is that FEZ on the Nintendo Change is a high quality port of the sport. Not that you’d count on in any other case, however we’ve seen balls dropped earlier than. If you wish to play FEZ on the go, it is a actually nice method to do it. Or if you wish to play it in your TV. I assume the Change does that, too. In any other case, there are tons of evaluations on the market that go deep into what this recreation has to supply and nothing I say goes so as to add an amazing deal to them. Our personal retired chief Eli Hodapp wrote a very nice one on TouchArcade for the cell launch.

Oh, okay. A couple of ideas. FEZ is an attention-grabbing recreation as a result of it takes the 2D side-scrolling platformer format and provides just a few twists to make it one thing fully totally different. The obvious of the bunch is the power to shift views, rotating the world round you in 90 diploma turns to disclose new space and paths. Solely barely much less apparent is its construction that encourages exploration to go together with the cautious platforming. It’s very a lot a post-Tremendous Mario 64 recreation, with a number of mysteries to find alongside the extra typical and “in plain sight” challenges. A few of these mysteries are unbelievably well-hidden, to the purpose that you could be by no means discover them. Nevertheless it in all probability received’t hassle you that a lot, as a result of even with out digging into the depths of its insanity FEZ has an terrible lot to offer.

New Releases

Comfortable Hoarder ($1.99)

When a recreation is simply two {dollars}, it’s in all probability not going to be the deepest or most polished factor round. And Comfortable Hoarder lives as much as that expectation, sadly. The concept right here is that stuff falls from the sky and it’s worthwhile to catch the great things whereas avoiding the dangerous stuff. The dangerous stuff is printed in pink in case you’re unsure. Go for a excessive rating, unlock new levels, and get new cosmetics in your character to put on. It’s solely a few {dollars}, however you possibly can additionally get a few scrumptious Snickers bars. I go away it as much as you which can make you happier.

Gross sales

(North American eShop, US Costs)

That’s a prolonged listing of latest gross sales, however there isn’t an excessive amount of in there that I’m terribly enthusiastic about. I suppose you’ll be able to decide up the BIT.TRIP video games for low costs (once more), if nothing else. The outbox is equally missing in punch. A lot of the massive video games that went on sale a pair weeks in the past noticed their reductions expire at the moment, so tomorrow’s batch is wanting a little bit skinny in consequence. Properly, test them out anyway. Simply because I’m not excited, doesn’t imply you received’t be.
