    The Queen & the Sea’, Plus the Newest Releases and Gross sales – TouchArcade

    Hiya mild readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for January tenth, 2022. In at present’s article, we’ve bought evaluations of a few current releases. Lifeless Cells: The Queen and the Sea will get put by the paces, and QUByte has one other reasonably priced motion sport for us to take pleasure in. We’ve got a pair of latest releases to take a look at, with each of them being ports from cellular. One is a little bit of a blast from the previous, and the opposite… not a lot. There are additionally some new gross sales, plus some expiring offers you’ll need to think about. Let’s get going!

    Opinions & Mini-Views

    Lifeless Cells: The Queen and the Sea ($4.99)

    I’ve by no means truly had event to overview the unique Lifeless Cells, nor have I accomplished so for any of its DLC to date. Let’s rapidly deal with that first. Lifeless Cells is a must-play. I’m not going to say everybody will prefer it, however for what it’s attempting to do, it’s nearly flawless. You possibly can play it anyplace you want; I’ve not but seen a model I might warn folks off of. Every of the DLCs launched up to now has added important, significant content material for these in search of extra challenges and choices.

    The Queen and the Sea is not any totally different. It provides a formidable quantity of content material for late-game gamers, full with a brand new “this time for positive!” closing boss battle and ending. There are additionally some new biomes, with the perfect of the bunch seeing you scale a tall vertical lighthouse as flames chase you from the underside. An added little bit of stress, in case Lifeless Cells can’t make you sweat anymore. There are some enjoyable new weapons to make use of, and a few new enemies to be taught to cope with.

    As a result of the content material is usually aimed toward these within the late sport, those that are new to Lifeless Cells might need to maintain off till they’re positive they like what the sport has to supply. In any other case, The Queen and the Sea is exceptionally straightforward to advocate. The brand new content material not solely provides extra stuff to the sport, it additionally presents some attention-grabbing new experiences. It in some way raises the temperature on the joy and stress even larger. 5 {dollars} is a meager value to pay for such a formidable extension to Lifeless Cells.

    SwitchArcade Rating: 4.5/5

    Watermelon Blocks ($3.99)

    Watermelon Blocks is one other low cost and easy platformer from QUByte Interactive. You play as a bit of watermelon and must make your technique to the exit in every stage, gathering all of the watermelon items alongside the way in which. It’s a kind of video games the place your character at all times strikes ahead, so you possibly can solely change route by kicking off a wall. All it takes is one hit to kill you, so it’s good to be very cautious to not hit something harmful. You even have the flexibility to change units of blocks on and off, and mastering this potential is essential for the later levels.

    Other than the watermelon theme, there’s nothing significantly recent or uncommon about Watermelon Blocks. Its 46 levels take slightly too lengthy to warmth up, and the issue actually solely picks up within the final quarter of them. That final stretch has some respectable stage designs, and the sport’s controls and collision detection work the way in which you’ll need them to. It’s a practical platformer, albeit a brief and considerably plain one.

    New Releases

    Star Balls ($9.99)

    I needed to look twice. At first, I assumed we had been getting a sport primarily based on a Mel Brooks film, however I assume that will be foolish. Sigh. Because it seems, it is a renamed port of 2014 cellular sport named Astro Golf. I truly reviewed all of it these years in the past, and I fairly appreciated it. I think about this model is simply as enjoyable. You get three modes of play with fifty ranges of house mini-golf the place the balls are all robots. Change the foreign money you earn for some helpful power-ups, and increase your capabilities to get round more and more devilish traps and obstacles. Should you’re on the lookout for one other quirky mini-golf sport, you’ll doubtless have some enjoyable with Star Balls.

    Day of the Lifeless: Solitaire Assortment ($19.99)

    It is a level-based solitaire sport with 100 ranges to clear and a graveyard to embellish with the goodies you choose up alongside the way in which. You need to use an assortment of boosters if you end up in a pinch. It is a port of a free-to-play cellular sport, and I’m going to provide them the good thing about the doubt that they rebalanced it to account for the shortage of microtransactions. Even with that, I’m undecided spending twenty bucks on it is a nice worth to your cash. The Change has plenty of nice solitaire apps for a fraction of this value. However finally it’s as much as you, pals.

    Gross sales

    (North American eShop, US Costs)

    Nicely sure, these aren’t the large title titles that we noticed within the gross sales that kicked off late final week. By and huge, the listing of latest video games at present is made up of the standard suspects. The outbox is extra attention-grabbing. Ratalaika’s newest sale is wrapping up, and whereas I’m positive they’ll have loads of different gross sales sooner or later, it might be a few months earlier than they go up once more. These Koei Tecmo video games are price enthusiastic about as properly, particularly for many who need to get caught up earlier than Atelier Sophie 2 releases later this month. Test these lists as ever, pals.
