    I am really surprised that there is no thread about this game yet, I downloaded it today and now I am maybe 2 or 3 hours into it and it's awesome. It's a 3D Plattformer but without jumping, you control a snake an slither your way around. It's very physics based and has some puzzle aspects. The controls take some time to learn because it's very different from everything else but once you get the hang of it it's very satisfying and fun to play. Don't expect a ton content in this game tho, it has only 15 levels so it should be possible to finish it within a few hours.
    Anyway it's a great game overall and I would recommend it to anyone who has some love for this genre.

    And no I didn't get paid to say this lol I am just a switch owner who wants to recommend a good game.

    Is it? I've been trying to convince myself to get it. I like platformers but it seems a bit expensive for what it is. And since I just forked out an extra 20$ above MSRP in my region, just to get Disgaea 5 two months early, I'm kinda hesitating on this one.

    I don't think it's too expensive. It might not have tons of content but it's graphics are impressive. Also I think it has a lot of replay value to get all the collectables. I really don't think the 20$ price tag is too high.

    I'm waiting on more reviews. So far I see 6/10 and 8/10. Not too sure about that.
    Also I heard that the HD Rumble is too much in the game and it makes weird noises because of the vibrations, that might be fixed in a patch tho.


    EDIT: Wow, ninja'd in a minute, whaddayaknow.

    Yeah it is. Rumble is very strong and loud in this game. I don't personally care very much but if you do you will be pleased to know the devs already said they will fix it.

    There is an easy fix for that! Create a new Nintendo account for a different country. The switch is totally region free so you can get any game that's out somewhere in the world. Snake pass is already available in the US and Europe for sure.

    I can confirm it's in the Canada, US, EU (Finland) eshops... Not in Japan yet.

    Not that simple when you take currency conversion into account. I dare anyone to find a better EU shop region than Finland!

    EU. Perhaps it was a glitch. I looked earlier this morning and it wasn't there.

    No, not a glitch. The recent releases only shows about 24 games and removed the rest (that's the default eshop page). To view all the games you should go to search, press search filters, and then press search iirc.

    Hey you are totally correct, it is only showing 24 of 27 games. I didn't realize it says "recent releases". Also I have to click on the spyglass then on "Search Filters" to actually get the full list of games.

    Well yeah, in any case you need to use the search function to display everything.

    I wish I could set the full list as my default store front. I'm gonna bitch about that now on the tech forums.
