‘Recursion’, ‘Space Mercenary Defense Force’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales – TouchArcade


Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for May 1st, 2024. It’s a new month, and I’d like to say it’s bringing some excitement with it. Alas, it is a Wednesday, and that means it’s pretty quiet. There are a handful of new releases, but the most noteworthy is one of those deals where you pay more to play the game a bit early. We summarize the ones worth summarizing, toss a couple in the bins, and then head on over to the sales section to check the lists of new and expiring discounts. Let’s get to what we’ve got!

New Releases

Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle: Chomp Champs – Deluxe Edition ($29.99)

Another Stadia game rises from the ashes, and this time it’s the Pac-Man Battle Royale game. No, not Pac-Man 99. That’s still dead. This is the one for up to sixty-four players that involves more direct competition. Looks fun enough, I suppose. Note that this is the Deluxe Edition, which includes some extra goodies and gives you one week early access to the game before the unwashed regular edition people roll in next week. You get a Klonoa hat though, so who can say if it’s a good deal or not?

Space Mercenary Defense Force ($4.99)

A Vampire Survivors-style game… in SPACE! That’s this in a nutshell, and there really isn’t much need to elaborate.

Recursion ($7.99)

Another of the escape room games from the nice folks over at Glitch Games, and if you’ve played any of this developer’s titles before you’ll know what to expect. Some interesting puzzles, some wry humor, and a story that doesn’t exactly resolve itself by the conclusion of the game. As this kind of thing goes, Glitch makes very good ones. Recursion is not going to buck that trend.

The Bin Bunch

Jetpack George ($3.99)

There’s No Dinosaurs ($7.42)

Stupid Cars ($5.99)


(North American eShop, US Prices)

A few things to note in today’s list of new sales. First up, Rolling Gunner. If you like shoot-em-ups, you need Rolling Gunner and its DLC Over Power in your collection. Twelve bucks for the whole enchilada? Come on now. Next, those Front Mission remakes. They’ve both been patched enough that if you like turn-based tactical RPGs, they’re worth considering. Finally, Cook, Serve, Delicious!. Good game, new low price. Do it up. Over in the outbox, it’s last call for the lowest price we’ve seen yet for Axiom Verge 2. Check those lists!

That’s all for today, friends. Not much reading material, I know. But tomorrow is Thursday, and it’s looking to have at least twenty games on the schedule. We’ll have summaries of most of them, a nice little bin bunch for the rest, and whatever sales and major news items roll in during the course of the day. I slept really badly last night. It’s that time of the year where it’s hard to find a comfy temperature, I suppose. Let’s hope I get more shuteye tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
