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:
Rip Them Off
Rip The Off is a minimalist game that’s a cross between puzzle, tower-defense, and resource management. You’re an office drone at a giant conglomerate and the board of directors has given you the task to raise the productivity at any cost.
Ministry Of Broadcast
This game can be described as: puzzle-solving platformer meets Hunger Games. In the dystopian future, you have to go on “the wall show” an entertain the masses to cross the border to see your family.
Lumo is a unique isometric puzzle-platformer with over 400 puzzles and even more hidden challenges. The isometric platforming is challenging, and the graphics are intentionally retro.
Jackbox Party Pack 2
Let your Switch host the party games while your friends and family play using their phones. The Party Pack 2 contains: Fibbage 2, Earwax, Bidiots, Quiplash, and and Bomb Corp for hours of game-show style fun!
Legend Of The Skyfish
Equipped with only a fishing pole, this game inspired by The Legend Of Zelda is a fantastic fantasy adventure across 45 dungeons solving unique and challenging puzzles. It’s not a triple-a title by any means, but it’s an enjoyable adventure for less than five dollars.
Blaster Master Zero $9.99 (demo available)
Blaster Master Zero is a faithful recreation of an NES classic from 1988 with enhanced graphics, a more coherent story, and some minor tweaks for the multi-button layout of modern controllers. Overall, the level design and combat system is pretty faithful to the original. If you want an even more comprehensive metroidvania experience, pick up the completely original Blaster Master Zero 2 also $9.99. Neither of these games are not on sale right now, but it’s an honorable mention here because the third (and final) game in the trilogy was just announced to come out on July 29th and if you haven’t had the chance to play these games, you should definitely pick these up!
