‘Arcade Game Zone’, ‘Electrician Simulator’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

By admin Jan 5, 2024

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for January 5th, 2024. Today’s hospital visit went well, so here I am. It’s another relatively quiet day, finishing out a relatively quiet week. We have a handful of new releases to close things out for the week, with nothing that I’m casting into the bin. There are some new sales, though not a whole ton of them. Well, that’s this week for you! Next week business will pick up again, so do look forward to that. For now, let’s wrap things up!

New Releases

Arcade Game Zone ($24.99)

A virtual version of the arcades you know and love. Provided, of course, those arcades had a bunch of knock-offs of real games in them. You get forty mini-games in this one, with thirty of them dedicated to paying homage to famous video games and ten serving as reproductions of the kinds of physical games you’d find in a Charles Entertainment Cheese restaurant. You know, shooting hoops, throwing darts, that kind of thing. Up to four players can join in via local multiplayer.

Electrician Simulator ($19.99)

It is as you would think from the title. You’re having to carry out various electrical jobs and repairs to earn money, which you can then use to upgrade your tools and garage. It seems to suffer from the usual issues with these ported PC titles, with tiny text and a UI that is ill-suited to play with a controller. But they keep coming, so I assume they keep selling, so I further assume people don’t have a huge problem with any of that stuff.

Ominous Tales: The Forsaken Isle ($15.99)

Find the hidden objects! There is probably some kind of story here. Let’s see. Some kind of haunted island? With a ghost lady? And for some idiotic reason you decide to go there? Well. Find the hidden objects!

Shivering Stone ($4.99)

Do you like sliding block puzzles? This game has fifty of them for you. Slide the rocks into the holes to open the exit. You know how this works, and you probably also know if this is your kind of gig or not.

They Know ($6.99)

This appears to be a fairly simple turn-based stealth game of a sort. You have to explore a six-floor facility and take pictures of evidence of mass conspiracies, all while avoiding the security roaming the premises. It doesn’t seem like terribly fancy dining, but the goofy theme helps it if nothing else.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Some low prices on a few Kairosoft sims in today’s list, along with some other interesting titles like Super Woden GP and Sword & Fairy Inn. Another big outbox to comb through today as the holiday sales taper off. Grab those Arcade Archives if you have any interest, and make sure you look through all those hot indies while you’re at it.
