The summer break is getting closer and Switch owners have more than enough games to keep busy with the likes of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and soon Splatoon 2, but we have made a selection of 3 more games we haven't had time to cover in the past few months.
In the heat of the Knight
Let's start with the full version of Shovel Knight, which includes both extensions, Shovel Knight Plague of Shadows and Shovel Knight Spector of Torment. As the game has already been released on most systems, there is no need to present it thoroughly. Suffice to say that retro gaming fans have a lot to sink their teeth into with what remains today an excellent pixel art platformer with a memorable soundtrack.
A game to puzzle
Puyo Puyo Tetris is the second game of our summer selection. Published by SEGA, this crossover between 2 of the most iconic puzzle game series should appeal both to newcomers and veterans, but getting all the stars in each level will require some skills and patience. The main criticism that can be mentioned is its price on the Nintendo Switch, which is surprisingly more expensive than on PS4, by far.
Uncharted without fortune
Last but not least, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is now available on Switch. This game, heavily inspired by the old Zelda games, was originally developed for iOS devices and then ported to basically every possible system. Something mobile players will notice is that the price is undeniably higher than it used to be on iOS in 2013, but it is "only" €/$14.99, which is more than acceptable considering the game's content. Some might blame Oceanhorn for its lack of originality or its simplistic character design (their faces especially), but overall, Oceanhorn provides a pleasant experience, with a solid soundtrack composed by the famous Nobuo Uematsu.
