The success of the Nintendo Switch has led to a flood of quality games on the platform that even the most optimistic Nintendo fan could not dream of in the weaker Wii U years. The constant flow of games from large and small studios means that even in the quieter periods between tent launches – Monster Hunter Rises and Skyward Sword HD around the world – there are dozens of smaller games to enjoy, not to mention lagging behind the brilliant software of the Switch eShop, often reduced to the point where the lack of space on our micro SD cards is a more pressing issue than the price.
We do our best to highlight as many of these smaller games as possible in Nintendo Life, but with the sheer number of titles that come to switch each week, it̵
Many thanks to everyone who responded. Departing from a few game nominations we’ve already looked at, we’ve compiled the following list of intriguing switching games recommended by Nintendo Life readers. In fact, we are still collecting and reading even more, so we will have another selection that will be on display sometime in the next week or two.
So let’s take a look – in no particular order – at some of NL’s readers’ recommendations to look out for. Each entry contains a short user comment (slightly edited in some cases) and a trailer for a bit of context. At the end there is a poll – let us know which of these games you played and liked in the comments.

Here’s a doddlewhizz for Jenny LeClue – Detectivu:
One of my favorite adventure games in recent years. He carefully turns the point of murder and mystery, radiating you not only as a smart, cheerful child, but also as a creator in the universe as he goes through the process of writing under the pressure of his publishers. It is very accessible in terms of puzzles, but simplicity does not reduce the experience thanks to great voice work and dialogue.
shining_nexus had this to say:
What I love most about him is the witty dialogue and the nice characters. The characters are very expressive and convey human emotions very well and I love to see how Jenny interacts with everyone and everything.
Puzzles can be very clever and have light platform elements, which is not very good. The story begins lightly and eventually becomes really mature, but still retains this charming presentation throughout the game.

This is a recent release of Flight School Studio, the team behind Creature In The Well. Here’s what Vincent said about Stonefly:
Stonefly is a game for tiny people the size of bugs who build fur to survive in this world. The protagonist of the game is Anika Stonefly, who seeks to retrieve her father’s stolen fur and during her adventure, she will have to dig resources to upgrade her fur, as countless mistakes will swarm her to get these. resources.
The game also involves exploring the tops of trees, marches and rivers, with jumping and sliding with the bellows as the main vehicle.

NL Tinglemies is a fan of Puddle Knights:
A puzzle game in which you help an aristocrat to pass wet puddles by rendering help to his nose. The levels are focused and the pace is constantly adding new mechanisms to the mix.

Here’s what GrailUK has to say about the puzzle-y action-RPG Ghost of a Tale:
Absolutely adorable sneakerama while looking for clues to find your missing wife. But first you have to escape from the prison cell. The journey takes you through a small, well-realized world meeting some NPCs full of character. Masterfully made. Charming. Elder Scrolls Cure. A Morrowind meets Wind in the willows mood with tones of character and a story that connected me.

According to the gamecrawler user, Regions of Ruin is what you would get if “Kingdom Two Crowns and Skyrim had a baby”. Sounds promising! Here are a few more details:
Regions of Ruin is described as an open world 2D pixel RPG with side scrolling with urban planning. You can build a base, craft, recruit a group of followers, solve mysteries during the game, gain powerful prey, survive against waves of enemies in “attacks” and help NPCs in quests around the world … there are tons activities that engage you and you are not forced to participate in anything in a certain order.
A random game in which I came across eShop and unexpectedly had a lot of fun!

Switch doesn’t have a shortage of cute shmups, but gojigui thinks we were fools to let Dezatopia pass us by:
Dezatopia has a wild, manic visual style, accompanied by some of the freshest mechanics the shmup genre has seen in years. You can shoot in four directions with four different types of shots – the more you shoot at the same time, the slower you move. When you’re not shooting, they fire a powerful shot – encouraging you to change weapons constantly.
It has fantastic melodies, multiple routes, a fine-tuned set of difficulties and even unlockable gallery elements. If you want a new smurf to entertain even the uninitiated, this is it!
