Nintendo Switch eShop Sales 2018-07-29

I’ve sorted the titles by Metacritic score, if one is available. The score is a convenient metric, but it is by no means the whole picture.

Additionally, I’ve highlighted games I would be interested in, based on a variety of factors, including: Metacritic score, other sources of information, personal taste, amount discounted and final sale price.

To get more info on a game, you can take a look at reviews of the game on other platforms, and also look at the user reviews. Often, especially for Switch, the same game on another platform will have more reviews available. User reviews do not affect the Metacritic score, but can also provide additional insight. I recommend following the link to any game you’re interested in, and doing some additional research.

I grabbed Adventure Pals and first impressions are very positive: polished, responsive platformer with a sense of humour and animation similar to Adventure Time. I also picked up FRAMED Collection based on Destructoid’s Review, but haven’t tried it yet.

The following games do not yet have a Metacritic score, but I’ve also highlighted a few of them.

I have Dead Cells on PC and it’s a really satisfying metroidvania rogue-lite. Kid Tripp has a free demo that I enjoyed, so I picked that up at half price.
