The month of July packs some great Switch releases, with indies and iconic titles being released side by side. A few long-awaited titles that have been running the hype train for a while now will finally see the light of day.
Starting the list off nice and slow is void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium. No that is not a bug, its the actual name of the game. Weird names aside, the game tells a story of a discarded maintenance robot that finds a girl name Toriko among the scrap.
Since the world is toxic and unsuitable for human life, the robot has to venture out and gather resources while fighting off various machines and creatures in order to create a habitable terrarium for Toriko.
This fun little RPG dungeon crawler with a strange and interesting setting shows tonnes of promise in terms of story, as well as a gameplay experience with beautiful art, interesting mechanics and a deep system that has the players thinking non-stop.
Kicking up the pace by a few notches, we have Bounty Battle, a fighting game comprised of numerous indie game characters duking it out in a deathmatch.
Having some of the most popular indie game characters from the iconic titles, varieties of fighting styles and a well-crafted art direction, the game is the perfect answer for the question “Who would win?”.
Turning the tempo up to eleven is #Funtime, a hectic twin-stick shooter with so much stuff happening on screen, it is hard to keep track of everything, but that is how it is meant to be.
The game, besides being an action-packed ball of fun, has some very interesting mechanics such as switching the colour of your ship to avoid certain dangers or enable the player to enter colour specific areas.
Having a bunch of content in the forms of various game modes and fifty-four challenge levels to play, it has tonnes of replay value and can be fun to mess around in or go for gold on the leaderboards. Whatever the goal is the game really presents itself to be a #Funtime.
Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a tactical shooter, set in the Warhammer universe, in which you take your army on an exploration mission to recover Necron technology.
Exploring a planet full of Necron tombs, filled with undead skeleton robots and unique technology. There are a few aspects of the game, team planning, upgrades and all managerial aspects of the game can be done in the downtime on your ship, exploring the dungeons and solving puzzle-like elements with boots on the ground and finally the fighting against the hundreds of undead space skeleton robots.
The combat is not very complex but the mechanics around the game tie it all up nicely, making it fun and interesting.
This is a suitable game whether you are a big fan of the Warhammer universe or just want to play a really well made and interesting tactical shooter.
Last but certainly not least is the long-awaited, highly anticipated bombshell of a game, Paper Mario: The Origami King.
