Beneath Zero ‘Evaluate, Right now’s New Releases, and Newest Gross sales – MCM Gaming

Hello dear readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for May 17, 2021. In today’s article we have a review for the Subnautica + Subnautica: Below Zero package, summaries of the rather dubious selection of new games that have hit the eShop and the usual lists of new and expiring sales to consider. It’s a smaller one today, but that’s how it works sometimes. Let’s get down to business!

Ratings & mini-views

Subnautica + Subnautica: Below Zero ($ 59.99)

There are many games that have been inspired by Minecraft to varying degrees. Most of them have enough sense to try to give the idea its own twist, although certainly not all. Whether or not this twist turns out to be interesting is a separate question. Subnautica’s attitude is very cool. It has all of the joys of slowly building a shelter and pushing further out into the world, but you spend most of your time underwater in an alien world. You must track down materials as you explore the depths, being careful not to run into the dangers of the sea. You bring these pieces back to your home base, assemble various items, and then you’re on your way again. As you progress, parts of the story will be revealed to you. Below Zero goes even deeper into the story and you’ll spend a little more time on land during your adventure.

You can buy these two games together or separately, and they are both good enough to spend your time and money on provided you enjoy the craft / survival games. The ports are really good, surprisingly. The initial load when you start the game is a bit long and there are occasional issues and stutters as you explore the game. But overall, both games look and run fine on the Switch. There are moments of incredible beauty in both Subnautica games, and I’m glad they can now be experienced on a handheld screen. If you have to choose between the two games, I would recommend the first game to the second. Even so, I’m sure that playing this original will get you to follow up anyway.

SwitchArcade Score: 4/5

New publications

Project: Knight ($ 4.99)

As far as I can tell, this is a rather humble action-adventure game. You travel through the kingdom, fight against enemies, collect coins and improve your character. There are six different areas you can move through. It doesn’t look too good, but I don’t think it looks bad either. I mean the camera looks chore and I doubt it has a lot of depth, but I’ve seen worse things go by for a fiver.

Tank Battle Retro ($ 4.99)

Piotr Skalski swings into another, somewhat popular genre of the eShop basement, the Atari Combat clone. This version offers you twenty levels to play on twenty maps and supports up to four players in local multiplayer mode. One interesting mechanism is that you have a limited number of lives and each life you lose makes you stronger. That means that you are most powerful in your past life and that you are adding an interesting risk / reward element to one of the oldest video game concepts in existence. It’s not much and is likely to be taken from elsewhere, but it is something.

Classic Solitaire ($ 4.99)

And it’s not done yet, folks. Piotr Skalski had time to play a Klondike Solitaire game on his coffee breaks while he was working on Tank Battle Retro I think. It is not so bad. You have fifteen different card designs and five different backgrounds to choose from. I think there are better solitaire games on the eShop, also at this price, but this one is fine. It doesn’t feel too cheap and it has enough options to make you realize a whiff of thought has gone into it. Not much more than that, but that’s the business.

Turbo Skiddy Racing ($ 4.99)

Rounding out the whole thing is a release from Pix Arts making this a one-day banner for new releases. This is an isometric racing game that up to four players can enjoy in local multiplayer on split screen. There are twelve different cars to choose from and fourteen racetracks with six different themes. It doesn’t look bad for a Pix Arts game. How does it play I’m not going to take the bullet to find out, friends. However, if you do, please report your results.


(North American eShop, US prices)

There were decent sales over the weekend. Both Doom & Destiny games, Miner Warfare, Terraria, Grindstone and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP are the best of the series, but check out the list and see if you pack anything else. The Outbox is tiny in comparison and doesn’t have much going for it aside from some of the titles mentioned above.

In any case, I hope you all have a great Monday and, as always, thanks for reading!
