With the news slowly coming along this week, it almost feels as if the gaming world is taking a breath of fresh air after big releases like SteamWorld Quest and Mortal Kombat 11. Yet these are some indie games arriving this week that are worth your attention.
GIGA Wrecker Alt.
Sometimes an indie game might come out of the most unexpected places. Like GIGA Wrecker Alt. for example, a 2D action game developed by none other then Gamefreak Inc, the creators of Pokémon. Together with Rising Star Games, they are bringing this exciting indie game to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
GIGA WRECKER Alt. establishes a 2D world for navigating platforms and solving increasingly challenging puzzles as players progress to unearth the mysteries of a sudden invasion that left the world in ruins. As players explore, they’ll use the abilities of Reika – that game’s main protagonist – to destroy and reconstruct their surroundings for solving each puzzle and fighting back against the invaders.
GIGA WRECKER Alt. is a mixture of exploration and physics where players can bring down towering walls and then use the rubble as a platform for navigating each level. Reika has a power known as ARCHE (Arms Creating and Handling Effect) that allows her to construct various weapons from rubble and scrap. This ability helps her create and navigate platforms, beat traps, and destroy enemies. Of course, there’s also the ability to crush enemies with falling objects as well.
The Sword of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse
Developer Onebitbeyond is bringing the cute hand drawn style adventure game, The Sword of Ditto, to Nintendo Switch thanks to Devolver Digital. This adventure RPG can be fully played by two players and has a unique charm to it.
The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse is a compact action RPG that creates a unique adventure for each new hero of legend in the relentless fight against the evil Mormo. Explore a delightful but dangerous overworld, brave menacing dungeons, and improve your hero in a charming village, during your quest to overcome the evil that plagues the island. Unleash the mystical Sword of Ditto and grab a co-op friend for an unforgettable adventure filled with delightful characters, extraordinary loot, and heroic battles!
Say hello to an 8-bit retro style game developed by Snikkabo As, the game plays like an action packed 2D action platformer that feels similar to the classic Mega Man we all know and love.
The evil Dr. Teklov is about to build a secret weapon, disguised in his huge space fortress. Time is running out but our hero Andy stepped up to defeat him and fight his way through Teklovs minions. Join Andy and prepare yourself for a dangerous journey that demands great skill and determination.
