Re-releasing a game from 2008 on the Nintendo Switch may not seem like a recipe for success, but it actually is if that game is De Blob, one of the coolest 3D puzzle platformers around. Now paired with the friendly Switch interface, gamers will be painting the town red, blue, green and everything else all over again.
Looking great on the Nintendo Switch, Castle Heart is a unique little platformer about a brave but tragic knight who is slowly turning to stone. Developer 7Levels has done a masterful job on this one, which may capture your own heart as you play.
We know it hasn’t been long since the last one, but Time Waster Billy is once again checking out another game that isn’t actually out. This time around, the beta he’s fooling around with simply goes by the title Knight Demo. Truth in advertising, huh? Come find out if this Knight is worth burning your daylight.
This week Billy is checking out a game about selling loot found inside dungeons. No, it isn’t Moonlighter again. This game is called Soul Sword.
Moonlighter is a wonderful game that stands as yet another testament to not all Kickstarter projects being bad. The marriage of dungeon diving and running a shop works incredibly well and the love put into the game shines through with the graphics and audio.
This week’s Time Waster is a game called Lost Sea that challenges players with traversing a series of islands after a plane wreck strands them in the Bermuda Triangle.
This week our Time Waster is finally moving away from action games and is switching it up with the Nintendo Switch version of Runner3.
Tunnel Rush immediately made me feel like Han Solo, guiding a spaceship through speeding light beams and avoiding obstacles that seem to pop up out of nowhere. But this game has a far more retro vibe that comes from arcade-style graphics and a simple enough concept.
Extinction puts players in the role of a roguish hero trying to defend his homeland against a hoard of ravenous, giant monsters. He does this by climbing up their bodies and crushing their heads. It’s all very Attack on Titan-eske, but pretty fun for an RPG with a twist.
This week Billy is looking at another game that isn’t out yet called Renaine and he’s getting some major Shovel Knight vibes from this one.
