Is Mighty Switch Force a good game? I've thought about getting it more than once.


I thought it was middling. A decent puzzle platformer without anything approaching challenging puzzles. Just felt like going through the motions, but competent, inoffensive motions at least. The time requirement for a high ranking is very strict so you will need speed runner skills to score there but if you don't care about that then there's no need to worry.

It outlasted Liberation Maiden on my 3DS (Which says almost nothing.) but is definitely the next to be purged when my SD card overflows again.

Could somebody that hasn't bought Mighty Switch Force check if it's still $4.99? The banner for the sale is still featured on the eShop despite the devs saying it would be over on 2/28.


Just went to go buy it myself in the off chance it was still on sale. It's back up to $9.99

To coincide with the release of a demo and big update, Chasing Aurora will be on sale for $7.49 until next week.

For those that haven't gotten in on it, the F-Zero sale will also be ending next week.

Little Inferno is also supposed to be on sale again(?) according to their Facebook page, but I'm not sure how much. $5 direct from them, $3.99 on Steam however. Too lazy to turn my WiiU on and wait seven years for it to boot up and load in the store.

Worth every penny I paid for it (on its original "sale" price of $9.99), but nobody asked my opinion.

There wasn't anything in the eShop to suggest that it was on sale, so I'd need confirmation that it's on sale since I've already bought it and cannot see the price anymore.

Edit: Checking the game's page on the eShop, it says it's on sale for $4.99, so there's the confirmation.

Lame how? I enjoyed it a lot once I saw that there was more to it than just the fireplace simulator aspect that seems to be all there is at first.

Probably a stupid question but do these 30 cent game sales apply to the 3DS versions at all?

I almost bought Little Inferno on steam this weekend but one dollar more for couch comfort(Yea I could hook up my PC to my living room TV but I won't for awhile) and off-screen play is more than worth it. Game is much more than a fire place simulator... and the story is something you might end up caring about without expecting it.

No. There aren't any SNES VC games on 3DS any way.

It seems that all you do is put stuff in a fireplace. I tried to buy it and it showed 9.99

Dammit. I was away from my Wii U this weekend, so I couldn't jump on this. I was ready to pick it up this evening.

I've read that others who buy games on sale on the eShop actually get full points. So instead of getting 299 points for Sonic @ $29.99 you will get 599 points. Yes, 300 free points.

I can confirm this works as I've gotten download codes for free games and still received the points.

Thanks for the heads-up. Know I'd miss a bunch of these if it wasn't for this thread.

Quick side note: dl'd it this morning and I sucked:lol:. Took me 2 rounds to take out Glass Joe.

Not sure if I'm just rusty or if things got tweaked with this version. Couldn't even get any speed punches going.
Gonna hafta bust out my old copy and give it a try.

Hey thanks for the heads up that is awesome, my points are not showing yet so can't confirm but if your right that makes this a super deal especially after picking up a few $50 eShop cards at toys r us last week for $45 a piece that makes this come out to about $21-$22 after all savings.

And been playing it ll morning, though I should be playing Bioshock Infinite, but was more in the mood for lighter fare this morning and it is great. Brings back a lot of good memories, my first system was the original Sega master system and Alex Kidd was one of my favorite games, so racing around various areas like the outrun track as Alex Kidd is sweet! I would like to see a new Alex Kidd game as well as a new Zillion game my other fave from the system.

But anyhow definitely recommend checking out the game the demo is great but game is even better than demo, or at least I felt like I had better on troll starting on some of the other tracks, and each character handles a bit differently at least I thought so.
