‘O-VOID’, ‘Mezmeratu’, ‘Skeler Boy’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

By admin May31,2024

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for May 31st, 2024. In today’s article, we wrap up the month of May by looking at the last releases of this week. Not a whole ton, but a few interesting ones. Mostly reasonably priced, too. After that, we have some sales to check out. New sales, expiring sales, both of them get their own list as usual. A breezy close to a busy week. Let’s get to the weekend!

Select New Releases

O-VOID: Console Edition ($4.99)

A simple one-button platformer that some of you might remember in its mobile form. You’re inside a spinning circle where platforms and other obstacles unroll in front of you, and you need to jump with good timing to survive as long as you can. There are seven randomly generated levels to play on, and you get some nice tunes to hop to. It’s free to try out on your mobile device, so I recommend doing that to see if you like it enough to buy it here.

Ruler Battle Online ($5.00)

The name is doing most of the work here. You battle your ruler against the rulers of others, and you can do that online with up to four players participating. And yes, these are rulers like the ones you use to measure things. You can customize your ruler and try to work your way through the ranks, knocking other rulers off the desk. Odd, to be sure. But for a fiver? With online play? Might be a fun thing to set up with some friends who are equally bored.

Mezmeratu ($8.90)

Remember those Baobabs Mausoleum adventure games? Well, this is a roguelite platformer spin-off, and if nothing else you can certainly expect some bizarre visuals and creative humor. Indeed, I thinking the striking style of the game is the main selling point here, so if you’re into touring through some nightmarish and surreal vistas, this might tickle your fancy.

Skeler Boy ($7.99)

Inspired by movies from the 70s and 80s, Skeler Boy is a horror adventure game where you need to explore a town, solve puzzles, and talk to strange characters. I feel like this setting is kind of overplayed at this point, but who knows? I haven’t had a chance to try this one yet, but I might dip my toe in if I catch the urge. It’s at least affordable, for those who are more interested in the premise.

Korean Rail Driving Tour LRT Busan-Gimhae ($19.99)

Here’s another Korean Rail Driving Tour game, this time featuring the route from Busan to Gimhae. As with the last one, you get real train footage here that plays as you drive the train along. It covers twenty-one stations and just over twenty-two kilometers, making for a pretty decent little tour. And if you happen to have the MasCon that Zuiki made for the Switch version of Densha de Go! in Japan, you can use it here to increase the immersion. I can’t imagine the odds of that, but maybe?

Astor: Blade of the Monolith ($24.99)

If you need another Soulslike on your Switch, here you go. Your usual story about saving the world and such. Sixteen different enemies, ten beefy bosses, four different weapons, and plenty of interesting locations pepper this twenty-hour adventure. Explore the world, power yourself up, and make good use of those easily swapped weapons to string together some cool combos. Your secret weapon is something called Runic Power, which lets you throw a little magic something-something into the works. Seems like a pretty good game, but I’d have to dive deeper into it to say for sure.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

You get a Shantae, and you get a Shantae, and you get a Shantae! If you don’t own the whole Shantae series and want to, there’s no better chance to fill your (Risky) boots. Also note a fairly solid discount on TMNT: Wrath of the Mutants, a really good price on the second Nickelodeon Kart Racers (maybe for the kids), and a few other interesting odds and ends. Plenty in the outbox too, so give that a proper look if you’re looking to spend some money today.
