As a collector of physical Switch cartridges, my principles forbid me buy a digital download for more than $10, so every week I find five great budget Switch games in the Nintendo eShop discounted to $10 or less. (in no particular order.)
This week’s top five:
The hit socially-distant party game comes to Switch! If you don’t already have it for PC or Mobile, you can now pick it up for Switch for only $3.50. The switch version is cross-play compatible so you can play with your friends on PC or Mobile.
Cthulhu Saves Christmas
This is an RPG where you play as Chtulhu who has lost his powers and needs to get them back by rescuing Santa Claus. It may feel out of season to purchase this pixel-art turn-based RPG in February, but I’d get this game now while it’s on sale and save it for Christmas. You’d think it’s scary Lovecraftian horror, but it’s actually a very funny game; you’re guaranteed to have a few laughs for 4-5 hours.
Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair
$29.99 $7.49 (Demo Available)
I’ve probably written before about the first Yooka-Laylee game because it’s amazing. This sequel is a slightly different game with a 3D overworld, but 2.5D puzzle levels inspired by Donkey Kong Country. It’s a great value if you love 2D platformers.
RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition
Myst was a revolutionary PC game that changed the face of gaming in the 1990’s. The re-release realMYST: Masterpiece Edition has been remastered and rewritten several times to make the experience as beautiful as possible while preserving the awesome feeling of the original release. It was the best selling computer game from it’s release in 1993 until it was finally dethroned by The Sims 2002, and now you can find out why with this fully remastered edition for only $7.99
Metro 2033 Redux
Metro is a single player story-driven shooter where you play as a citizen of a post-apocalyptic underground bunker who has never left the safety of your shelter. Now you must travel the Moscow metro system to warn all of mankind of a new threat. If you just can’t get enough, you can get the sequel Metro: Last Light Redux also for only $9.99
Classic DOOM games
Doom is a classic game that set the tone for first-person-shooters for years to come. These editions games have been remastered for Switch with widescreen aspect available for the first time. All four of these classic games are on sale this week.
For more great deals, check out last week’s list as many of those games might still be on sale! I’ll be back next week with another list of five great budget Switch games in the Nintendo eShop discounted to $10 or less!
