It's on sale for all formats at 40% off apparently (in case you want to update your title). I've just downloaded it for my Switch

Voted hot, purchased on release and not played it yet of course

Hah, that's typical - just a few days after I'd given up on a Switch sale and bought it on PS4.

Ah - yeah - it should be but I checked MSN and PS listings and neither showed the sale price. I'll update

Lol - should've waited then could have gotten it as cheaply on the PS4..

Thanks will grab this later.

Still on the fence with this game. I wanted to try it but I remember it got mixed reviews, can anyone recommend it?

I downloaded it at full price due to the rave reviews but after a few levels ended up shelving it. I would return it if I could. It's pretty and innovative, and controlling the snake has been an interesting skill to master, but I can't say it's "fun". Maybe if I was 14...

Nah, I paid the same price on PS4 as I would have done here (40% discount), so it's not a monetary loss.

The first game on sale on the Switch and it's a third party game, shocker

It's a great game though, I'd highly recommend it for a cheap thrill. Not that much replay value though

Not really my kinda game, however plenty of people (especially younger kids) were having a great time playing this at EGX Rezzed. The Dev I was schmoozing with seemed like a good guy too.

Did the same. It's decent but it's more frustrating than fun. Wasted money.

But it's £9.59. Surely it's £10's worth of fun?
Tempted but don't want to be irritated by it.

Its 50% off on Steam until 5th July. I'm enjoying it, there are some issues regarding control of the camera but not too bad once you get used to it. Worth £7.99 for the innovative control of Noodle.

This exactly. Good price though. The first discounted switch game as well if I'm not mistaken.

Indeed - it's no longer on sale on PS4. (the discount there was a couple of weeks ago), nor is there a discount on Xbox One.

I'm not sure why ScarboroughKID added that edit to the posted details, but I've added a note myself to correct it and asked the mods to remove the misinformation.

It's quite odd really. The Summer of sales trailer actually starts off saying the sale is across all platform digital stores. So maybe it's coming again further down the line on the PS4

It's not hugely frustrating. The main items you have to collect are usually pretty easy. But they add a lot of collectibles to each level that can be extremely difficult. You have an opportunity to choose which collectibles you go for, so it can be as easy or as difficult as you like.

The "problem" with it is that the puzzles are generally pretty similar. Not in a "do one and you can do them all" kind of way, but they're all quite slow paced and require a bit of thought and careful movement. It's really unique though so if you get into it, it's great (I did, about 5 hours in now and I'm regularly dropping back in to collect more coins). But if you can't find fun in slithering around as a snake, then this game doesn't really have anything to offer.

Graphics on this game are gorgeous, particularly on a decent PC.

Sold! Purchased now. Hopefully the GTX 970 in my little secondary gaming rig downstairs will push either high 1080p or low settings 4K nicely.

It will certainly give it a workout! At 4k/60 max settings there wasn't a lot of performance left over from my 1080ti! About 120fps at 1440p, which is nice but not really necessarily tbh its a slow moving game, nice to have the camera pan smoothly mind.

Hopefully this will be the start of other discounts like Wonderboy!

Did he look like Phil Spencer? (serious question btw)

Well that's annoying, I know I'm getting a switch so thought I'd buy this but you can't unless you own a switch!! What sort of online store does that?!

Just to let you know, using custom settings I've managed to get 3840x2160 at a locked 60fps, nearly everything on medium but anti-aliasing (which is mostly pointless at 4k).

Looks great. Seems like it's actually a pretty light game, seeing as this rig is a i3 4130, 8GB DDR3, and a GTX 970.

Perhaps there are some dumb settings bundled in ultra then that are really taxing.

This is a steal- real fun game that appears incredibly easy on the surface but is maniacally hard if played right. Also, somehow, chill af.
Really good for play+pass with mates.
