Hey mild readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for Might thirtieth, 2023. I used to be busy with different issues as we speak, so I needed to bump one or two evaluations to a different day. However I did handle to place one collectively for the 16-bit console model of Puzzle Bobble that got here out concurrently the brand new sport, in order that’s what we’re beginning with. After that, there’s one new launch to have a look at. Only one. Nevertheless it’s an attention-grabbing one, and it appears to have butts, in order that’s good. Lastly, these new and expiring gross sales lists. You already know them, I hope you like them, they’re right here. Let’s get to it!
Critiques & Mini-Views
Puzzle Bobble / Bust-a-Transfer (16-Bit Console Model) ($7.99)
Okay, so yesterday I reviewed the newest sport within the Puzzle Bobble collection, Puzzle Bobble Everybubble!. It’s a stable new entry with hook to it because of its cooperative multiplayer. If in case you have mates or household to play with and also you don’t thoughts the value, it’s a fantastic pick-up. However perhaps you’re on a tighter funds. Possibly you’re not so fascinated by co-op. Properly, there’s some excellent news for you, my thrifty pal: the Tremendous NES model of Puzzle Bobble was launched alongside the brand new sport for a really good worth.
“However Shaun,” I hear the imaginary voices cry out. “Why would I would like the Tremendous NES model of this sport after I should purchase the NEOGEO model on Swap for a similar worth?” Legitimate query, my hallucination. The factor is, the Tremendous NES model is higher than the arcade authentic. It has seventy extra phases along with the unique thirty, culminating in an finish boss battle. It additionally provides a brand new Battle mode, plus a couple of Particular Bubbles to spice issues up. Certain, you may simply leap to Puzzle Bobble 2 and reap the advantages of a few of this, however if you need the unique, that is one of the best one you will get on Swap.
The emulation has been dealt with by ININ’s common go-to developer, Ratalaika. You’ll most likely acknowledge the interface. You possibly can decide between the Japanese and Western variations of the sport, although there isn’t any actual cause to go together with one over the opposite past the language. You additionally get all these good show choices, together with their stable CRT filter. What you don’t get, surprisingly sufficient, is any form of save state choice. You’ll need to go old-school right here and write your greatest scores on a serviette or one thing so that you don’t lose monitor of them.
Puzzle Bobble is a enjoyable puzzle sport and it roughly hit its idea out of the park early on, which suggests it’s nonetheless enjoyable to return to the early entries even as we speak. The Tremendous NES model may not be the definitive model of this sport, but it surely’s definitely a step up from the NEOGEO choice provided by Hamster. The one factor holding this again is the curious lack of save states, which dampens the enjoyment of aiming for ever-higher scores and forces you to depend on passwords to make your manner by means of all the phases in story mode.
SwitchArcade Rating: 4/5
To Hell with the Ugly ($19.99)
An journey sport from ARTE Expertise, primarily based on the 1948 satiric novel of the identical title by Boris Vian. You play as Rocky, a good-looking younger man who goes out for an evening in town and will get much more than he bargained for. He wakes up in a mysterious hospital and desires to flee from the individuals who kidnapped him. The sport is ready in Nineteen Fifties Los Angeles and leans exhausting into the noir style, all backed up by a clean jazz soundtrack. It’s definitely dressed up nicely sufficient, however we’ll need to see if it will probably stroll the stroll.

Scorching deal of the day, for those who don’t have it already and have thirty-three gigabytes of storage to spare, is Mortal Kombat 11 Final. 9 bucks will get you a big-pants combating sport filled with issues to distract you from the truth that Capcom won’t ever grace Swap with a Road Fighter previous the third. Apart from that, I don’t have any sturdy suggestions. Do what your coronary heart tells you. And your pockets. Don’t neglect to seek the advice of the pockets.
