The Switch receives its first sports game this week in the form of ACA NeoGeo Neo Turf Masters (£6.29). Don’t let the fact that it’s a re-release of a sports game from 1996 put you off – it’s held in high regard, often referred to as one of the greatest arcade sports games of all-time. Easily up there with NBA Jam, Punch Out!! and Windjammers. That last one has a good chance of appearing on Switch at some point, too.
Another three indie titles are available on Switch this week, all of which are from the same developer – Tomorrow Corporation. World of Goo, Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine graced the Wii and Wii U some time ago. Little Inferno – a minimalistic puzzler based around burning things – was a Wii U launch title, in fact, while physics-based World of Goo was one of the finest WiiWare titles.
Human Resource Machine meanwhile is Tomorrow Corp’s newest release, which is also a puzzler. This one is set in an office and involves sorting tiles with basic commands to get your staff to work efficiently. NintendoWorldReport gave it an 8/10, claiming that there’s no better place to play it than on Switch.
Time appears to have been very kind to 2009’s World of Goo too, with Destructoid giving this new Switch iteration a 9/10. “After all these years, it remains a delight from damn near top to bottom” they said. Little Inferno has received scores quite as hot, but it’s going down well enough to garner a 72% Metacritic.
