SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Centipede: Recharged’, ‘A Juggler’s Tale’, and Today’s Other New Releases, News, and Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for September 29th, 2021. In today’s article, it’s a bit of a lighter bite. We have a handful of new games to check out, though on the whole it is not a particularly thrilling bunch. Don’t worry, as you’ll practically be drowning in new games tomorrow. I promise. We’ve got a little news to look at, and some decent sales to sort through as well. A whole bunch of Square Enix stuff, mainly. Let’s get to it!

News

Fly High in the Next ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Event

Another Wednesday is upon us, and that means it’s time to hear about the next weekend Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event. This time around, it’s a tournament event where only characters with wings can participate. Some of those are obvious, but don’t forget that the likes of Steve and Banjo have external wings they can rely on. The more you win, the better the quality of spirits you’ll earn. The event kicks off on Friday and runs for the usual three days through the weekend.

New Releases

Centipede: Recharged ($9.99)

If you liked the original Centipede or the recent Missile Command: Recharged, this may be of some interest to you. It applies a similar graphical overhaul as the one we saw in the Missile Command reimagining, and like that game adds in a lot of new elements like power-ups, challenges, and local multiplayer modes. I didn’t mind Missile Command: Recharged and I still enjoy a game of Centipede now and then, so I’ll be checking this one out for sure.

A Juggler’s Tale ($17.99)

This is a sharp-looking puzzle platformer where you control a marionette named Abby. You have to use her strings to solve puzzles and get past obstacles, which could make for some very clever set-ups. Poor Abby just wants her freedom, but can she achieve it? Or will her strings always control her? The presentation on this one is dynamite, but I haven’t had a chance to play it so I can’t say much more than that.

Math Classroom Challenge ($9.99)

So, you’ve got these math problems floating in the air, right? And you use a water hose to spray the correct answers. This is aimed at younger kids, and I suppose trying to sell them on practicing math problems by dressing it up as a simple first-person shooter is one way to do that. It’s quite low-pressure, at least.

Meteoroids 3D ($9.99)

Not to be confused with Metroid. This game doesn’t try to hide that it’s inspired by Asteroids. In fact, it is downright enthusiastic about it. Except instead of simply copying the idea as many other games do, it moves things to a first-person view. This is the same developer as Math Classroom Challenge and I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if they’re sharing an engine and a lot of assets between these two games, by the way. It adds a lot of elements and the whole thing just seems way too busy. The eShop description is a must-read, though. I’ll let you enjoy that with no spoilers.

DroneRidge ($9.49)

This simple action game sees you guiding your ship through twenty winding levels, carefully thrusting through narrow passes and taking out enemies with your weapons. Nothing too fancy, but it seems to do what it wants to do well enough.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Not a huge list of new sales today, but Square Enix is having a dandy of a sale on many of its titles. Even NEO: The World Ends With You, which is somehow a whopping 30% off only a couple of months after its release! That… that means it sold really well, right? Anyway, most of those games are well-worth the prices they are going for, so it’s up to you when and where you want to pull the trigger. Some of yesterday’s new releases also have their launch discounts in effect as well. There’s quite a lot in the outbox as well, so make sure you have a look through that. Don’t forget to save some money for tomorrow!
