As a collector of physical Switch cartridges, my principles forbid me to 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 Swords Of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse
If you’ve read this article before, you’ll know that Swords of Ditto is a game I’ve talked about a couple of times. It’s a dungeon-crawling RPG with a lot of depth and high-quality artwork. Lots of replay value for under then bucks.
Darkwood is a bizarre atmospheric horror game that created tension and anxiety without things like jumpscares or loud sounds. The top-down adventure has you gathering supplies in the daytime and taking shelter to survive at night.
Sonic Mania started out as a fan-made game collection and was quickly adopted by SEGA to be an official game. all the levels run at 60fps in HD but have that old-school 16-bit 2D feel from classic Sonic games.
The Long Journey Home
Rogue-like elements with a sci-fi setting of an experimental jump drive gone wrong, you and your crew find yourselves trapped on the wrong side of the galaxy. Now, you are entirely on your own – and the only way back leads through the vast unknown of outer space.
The official description claims this game is a “hard boiled action comedy arcade shooter” and it’s not kidding. Huntdown is a 2D side-scrolling shooter inspired by late-80’s arcade games like NARC and Contra. It’s definitely a blast from the past.

Moving out is a physics-based co-op game about a moving company. You can friends have to move boxes and large furniture into other buildings, trucks, boats, and more. But getting from A to B is never a straight path, so be prepared to pivot!
