mountains, islands and the like. Newbie’s lot in life is to prove his

worth as a sentient, self-delivering package and in doing so save the

Global Postal Service from bankruptcy.

its 32p on pc, is it any good?

Edit seems out of stock for 32p so maybe that's not a fair comparison

I have it on Steam it is kind of like super monkey ball meets, billy hatchet and the giant egg with the music and location of Mario sunshine. It's not too bad but I was not really into playing games like that on PC even with my Xbox controller. I am currently downloading it for the switch to see if it feels better on there. I know ill like playing this on the go.

that does sound like a good match for the switch, how is the multiplayer?
Anyone know if this game looks OK now? It was absolutely awful when it launched, but they patched it to 768p docked and 720p handheld. But there doesn't seem to be footage anywhere...

I purchased Rocket League and NBA Playgrounds recently when on offer. Although Rocket League won't be of use due to online i'm loving NBA
It's just scraping 50% on metacritic and was being sold for 50p yesterday on steam so considering its £12.49 on switch it seems to be one to avoid

I just had the chance to play some of it. The multiplayer unfortunately is not for one joycon you have to use a pro controller because of using the other joy con to move the camera. it is up to 4 player splitscreen local play. It's has a list of differentchallenge modes. Like collect the most points before the other player etc. There is tournament or freeplay mode based in different maps from the main game. I could play the multiplayer with out anyone else it lets you but needing a pro controller like minecraft is disappointing.

So from just playing it is not as sharp as on PC there is like a blur effect around the edges of the boxes and surroundings. I can't tell if it is an effect added or like you said it's at a lower resolution than the size of the screen. I only played in handheld as well I will have to have a look on a bigger screen. The thing that annoyed me more is the constant sounds the characters are making when you have to read all the tutorial instructions too much of it. lol There is no way to turn it off unless I just mute SFX.
Reckon this and Chicken Range could be the first Switch physical game cart to sell at £9.99 as standard if people are patient. I haven't played it, I just get that feeling, it is a budget sort of game anyway.
