February 5, 2023

Hello dear readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for December 23, 2022. It’s the last pre-Christmas edition, and while I’m sure we’ll see a few more indie games coming out today (probably a really big one), I’ll to catch up with them later. I’ll be all in bed by the time you read this, possibly dreaming of sugar plums? I do not know. Anyway, summaries of all those new games I know. A large list of new sales. Some expiring sales. That’s the bunch. Let’s ring some bells!

New releases

Melatonin ($14.99)

This is a rhythm game with twenty different levels to play, each with its own dream-inspired challenge. The visuals look very unusual, and if you’re looking for something after the story is over, there are unlockable challenge modes and mash-ups, plus a level editor and practice mode. Mikhail played this one and tells me yes Rhythm heaven vibes, and those are good vibes to have. He’ll have a review for us sooner or later.

Hyper Weapon Sport ($24.99)

I’m sure the Stadia software lineup should be introduced to everyone given the huge success of the console. We’ve all played his many hits to exhaustion, but with the system winding down, what to do with some of those exclusive titles? from Necrosoft Gun sports will in any case live on in this sequel, Hyper shooting sport. It’s like volleyball, but with guns. Up to four players can join in via local multiplayer, and it’s extremely fun. If you enjoy playing over-the-top sports games with your friends or family, you might want to check this out.

Gay Astronomy Club ($9.99)

A fairly simple adventure game with a premise well described by the title. After a flood, a civet cat named Louie is staying at a friend’s house. Other friends gather at the house and together they listen to a podcast and wait for Halley’s comet to arrive. A short and sweet story about friendship and understanding, in case you need something like this today.

Risk your life to get your dinner back -Nyanzou Action Game- ($1.00)

That might be one of the most compelling titles I’ve ever seen in a video game. We can all understand the gnawing hunger of an empty stomach, and the feelings of anger and frustration when our hard-earned livelihood is stashed away by some vile devil. If we can’t get our food back, we will surely die. So a certain amount of risk is warranted to restore our valuable caloric intake. Thought-provoking stuff. Too bad the title is linked to a rather shabby three-speed auto-runner. Well, it’s a penny. You get what you pay for.

Roller Katz: BF – Episode 1 ($4.99)

I really can’t make head or tail of this. You skate through a 3D world and can do different tricks. You can also attack enemies and explore different paths. Judging by the title of the episode and the low price, I don’t think this is very long. But I really can’t say for sure since I haven’t played it and don’t see much information about it online. Proceed with caution.

Truck Simulator 3 ($12.99)

BoomHits has another racing game and it’s the publisher’s third kick in the Truck Simulator series in particular. Pretty much the usual from these folks, with ten vehicles to drive, some decent spaces to drive in, and a ton of missions to complete. It will probably be heavily discounted in a few weeks.

Zombie Survival ($3.99)

Well, at least it’s a bit different from the usual Cooking & Publishing template. This one is a very short visual novel style where you make your choices and discover twenty different endings with four different characters. Probably not very good, given the history of this publisher.
