‘Brok the InvestiGator’, ‘The Pillars of the Earth’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for March 1st, 2023. In today’s article we’ve got a handful of new releases to look at, with a couple of really good games in the bunch. Beyond that, it’s just the lists of new sales and expiring discounts. It’s a little bit of a quiet day, but that’s how it goes at times. Tomorrow will pick up the slack, don’t worry. Let’s check out what we’ve got!

New Releases

BROK the InvestiGator ($24.99)

This is a point-and-click style adventure game with excellent, vibrant visuals. Oh, and it’s also a beat-em-up with excellent, vibrant visuals. Mostly an adventure game, though. Brok is a private detective whose wife died under mysterious circumstances. Some new events have caused some things to come to light, and Brok may finally get some answers… if he can chase them down. This game got an extraordinarily good reception when it came out on computers, and I expect Switch owners will like it just as well.

A Fox and His Robot ($59.99)

A 2D action platformer with some really nice graphics. It stars a fox named Alpha who is trying to escape from a prison of sorts, with the help of an artificial intelligence. It also has a local multiplayer versus mode for some reason. It looks nice and all, but I’m trying to figure out why it’s going for a full price and all I can come up with is that the indie dev who made it has decided to really go for it. I wish them luck.

Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth ($19.99)

The extremely popular 1989 novel becomes an adventure game courtesy of the experienced folks at Daedelic Entertainment. This one has been out for a while on other platforms and as you would expect from this developer, it’s quite a good game. Play as three different characters and follow the events of the book or diverge as you see fit. In the grand scheme of adventure games, this one is more about telling a story than stumping you with challenging puzzles, but it certainly delivers on that narrative punch. Whether you know the book or not, this is a fascinating game to go through.

Green Soldiers Heroes ($20.00)

Twenty bucks, eh? Alright. I guess everyone is going for it today. This is a gallery shooter where you play as a character that looks like something out of Army Men but apparently is like a Captain AmeriHulk. Anyway. Point your cursor at things and shoot them. Get coins to buy some stuff in the shop like new weapons and outfits. Then do it again. Realistically I could see this moving at five or under, but at this current price it feels like a pee-pee take.

Chess Openings and Book Moves ($2.99)

Let’s see what Cooking and Publishing has cooked up this time. Well, it’s a book. It’s a book that teaches you some chess moves. No, you can’t play any chess with this. It’s just a short book that you read on your Switch. Why? I don’t know.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Wow, that’s not much of a list at all in the inbox. I really have nothing to say about it. The outbox is a fair bit bigger and by default more interesting. Cuphead, Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium DLC, and various others are finishing up their sales soon. Have a look through that list carefully.
