Well folks, you know what time it is. It’s time for another Nintendo Download! I really have grown to appreciate running this segment the last few weeks, and find it’s a welcome distraction from the insanity of “real life”. There’s a lot of interesting featured titles this week, as well as the typical sales and digital games to check out. Let’s start with 4 very different games.
Perhaps the most interesting featured title this week is one I’m also going to be covering personally in the next few days. It’s called SuperMash, and it’s a tribute to retro games. You literally mash together two different game genres, and play a mini game based off elements of both. So far it’s a very unique experience, but you can read more once my impressions piece goes live. The next title is called Void Bastards. It’s a rogue space shooter with a great visual aesthetic. If you prefer more kinetic gaming, you might enjoy Huntdown. It has you hunt and kill foes in a lush 16 bit style, either solo or with a friend. Finally, if you want to race down a mountain on a bike, you might enjoy Lonely Mountains: Downhill. Next up, let’s check out some sales for this Nintendo Download.
