SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Garbage Pail Kids’, ‘Dire Vengeance’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and Sales

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Garbage Pail Kids’, ‘Dire Vengeance’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for October 26th, 2022. It’s another one of those quiet Wednesdays leading into a bonkers-bananas Thursday, so let’s take a deep breath and enjoy the moment of silence before the storm. Only a few new releases to look at today, and none of them are toss-aways. We’ve got summaries of each of them, plus the latest sales and outgoing discounts. Let’s get to work!

New Releases

Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike & the Quest for Stale Gum ($9.99)

What year is this? Yes, the Garbage Pail Kids finally have a game to call their own. It’s a side-scrolling platformer built to NES spec, developed by the folks behind Haunted Halloween ’86. It looks and plays like it too, so if you enjoyed that game then you’ll probably have fun here. There are four playable characters, six stages, and a trading card system so you can relive the old days of collecting gross stuff your parents sharply disapproved of. No, not those magazines. You know what I mean.

Robotry! ($12.49)

This is a weird platformer where you control each of the legs of a robot with the two sticks on your controller. No jump button here, so if you want to catch some air you need to make the necessary leg movements. Silly fun with physics abound, so if you like that kind of thing you’ll want to give this a look.

Dire Vengeance ($14.99)

A perfectly decent 2D action-platformer. It feels like it was inspired by a number of Konami classics. It has speedy gameplay, a rocking soundtrack, and a fairly uncommon power-up system for this genre. Reviews for the game on other platforms are generally quite positive, so as long as nothing got messed up in the translation to the Switch, this should be a solid pick-up for those looking for another cool action game to play.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Bethesda sale, people. Lots of DOOM games, some Wolfenstein games, and even the recently-released Anniversary Edition upgrade for Skyrim are on sale. Apart from that, there isn’t much of any particular note save the excellent Ender Lilies. But you probably have that already. A few goodies in the outbox, including R-Type, Star Ocean, and Game Dev Story. Be sure to give it a good look!

That’s all for today, friends. We’ll be back tomorrow with around thirty new releases, most of which will be forgotten by next Tuesday. There will be summaries of them anyway, so as to make some actual record of their existence. Other than that, we’ll have the lists of sales and probably nothing else because, holy cow, thirty new games. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
