Moonrider’, Plus the Latest Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Good day mild readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for January seventeenth, 2023. In as we speak’s article, we’ve bought a evaluation of Joymasher and The Arcade Crew’s slick 16-bit motion homage Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider. After that, there are just a few new releases to take a look at, and the same old lists of recent and expiring reductions on the eShop. Not the busiest of days, however the finish of the week will make up for it. Let’s get to work!

Opinions & Mini-Views

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider ($16.99)

Moonrider is developer Joymasher’s fourth launch on the Nintendo Swap, following Oniken, Odallus, and Blazing Chrome. I want I might say it was precisely on par with the latter, as Blazing Chrome was one of many higher stabs on the run-and-gun style I’ve seen from an indie developer. Moonrider isn’t fairly that good, falling nearer on the spectrum to Oniken and Odallus. That’s not a nasty place to be, thoughts you. These are each good video games, in any case. A stable little bit of weekend leisure.

Whereas the robotic ninja motif rapidly calls video games like Shinobi, Strider, Hagane, and maybe even Ninja Gaiden to thoughts, its bones extra intently resemble the Mega Man X sequence than anything. After an introductory stage you’ll be able to select which order you deal with the following batch of phases in, and defeating the bosses in every gives you entry to an assortment of additional weapons. You can too discover non-obligatory upgrades hidden in every stage when you poke round. It’s additionally fairly heavy on dashing and wall climbing. As homages to that mighty franchise go, it’s an pleasurable one. Sadly, it’s additionally simply as temporary as the typical X sport. You’ll probably wrap it up inside just a few hours, even when you’re looking for every little thing.

Moonrider has a superb presentation, and the controls are simply as responsive as you’ll hope. The sport throws out quite a lot of enjoyable little twists as you make your method via its phases that guarantee issues at all times keep recent. Whereas it falls a bit wanting the implausible Blazing Chrome and ends a bit of sooner than I’d want, that is nonetheless a advantageous classic-style romp that followers of 2D motion video games can have no bother entering into.

SwitchArcade Rating: 4/5

New Releases

Mrs. Cat Between Worlds ($4.99)

It is a fairly customary precision platformer, with all of the strikes and methods you’ll count on. You really get two video games right here, with fifty ranges every. Keep away from the hazards, accumulate the gems, and make your solution to the exit on every stage. You’re a cat, in order that counts for one thing a minimum of.

RE:CALL ($19.99)

It is a puzzle-adventure sport, however I can’t actually determine precisely how the gameplay works from the outline. It talks about manipulating your recollections to form the longer term, however I’m unsure what that entails. It comes from the identical developer as the wonderful Evan’s Stays, although, so it’s in all probability price listening to.

Swap Sides ($1.00)

It is a handheld-only sport the place you must hold rolling your ball and selecting up the goobers for so long as you’ll be able to with out falling off the platform. You need to swap sides often to ensure you don’t roll too far in anyone course. It’s a buck.
