As a refresher, you’re controlling the titular TumbleSeed (the pink eye-looking thing above) on its way up a mountain and battling its possessed inhabitants along the way. If you’re defeated before reaching the summit, you have to start over from basecamp. Every time. It comes to us from the team behind the simple yet addictive Threes and Ridiculous Fishing, and its aesthetics and play style could be a perfect fit for the Switch.
“TumbleSeed has a lot of the same values a Nintendo game has,” developer Greg Wohlwend told us earlier this year. “It’s colorful and easy to get into. But it also has a lot of the things from the NES days, especially difficulty.
“We’ve spent a ton of energy on getting TumbleSeed to fit that combination of natural-to-learn mixed with challenging and fun, even after playing for two years.”
Given the pick-up-and-play nature of the game and how easy it is to swap between big and small screens with the Switch, this might be a breakout hit for the system. No Switch? It’s also coming to PC and PlayStation 4.
