‘Biomotor Unitron’, ‘Arcade Archives Flipull’ and other new releases and sales today – TouchArcade


Hello dear readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade roundup for May 26, 2022. The day is Thursday, and that means we have a bunch of new releases to check out. Jumping back in time we have Unitron bioengine and Arcade Archives Flipull, two cool games that are coming back after quite a long period of inactivity. There is an intriguing RPG based on the Three Kingdoms, an indie fighting game and real-time Pride Parade strategy game. You can’t hit variety, that’s for sure. We also have new and expiring sales for you. Let’s go!

New releases

Unitron Bioengine ($7.99)

Well, here’s a nice surprise. SNK has another NEOGEO Pocket Color game for us today. Unitron bioengine was SNK’s first short-lived handheld RPG, though I guess by today’s standards we might be tempted to call it a roguelite. You play as the pilot of a mech called Unitron and must crawl through dungeons battling monsters. Your pilot will gain experience, which will bring certain improvements, and you can also obtain parts for your Unitron which will power it. Dungeons are procedurally generated and the town is just a menu. Unfortunately, trading features aren’t available in this version, but it’s otherwise a great way to play a fun game that commands silly prices on the secondary market.

Flipull Arcade Archives ($7.99)

Ah, now here’s a neat one. flipull is a puzzle game that was originally released in the arcade by Taito in 1989 and eventually made its way to other platforms including the Game Boy. This version is the one I know best. Some of you might know this game as Tracing. Either way, what you need to do is toss blocks with symbols on them to make matches, which sounds simple enough but is actually quite tricky as you shrink the stack. If you don’t get it right, you’ll end up with leftover blocks that you can’t remove. And that’s the game. That’s a good thing, and Hamster has done its usual good job with this release.

Twin Blades of Three Kingdoms ($14.99)

Based on the Chinese novel, it is an RPG with strategic turn-based battles. There are over one hundred and twenty generals in play, giving you great flexibility in how you want to compose your party. Apparently, BUN BUN (Yasuaki Fujita) composed the music for this game, which is pretty cool. He was one of the composers of Mega Man 3, Final Fight 2, Breath of Fireand punky skunk. Either way, it’s basically a standard JRPG with slightly rough visuals and a combat system similar to games like Brilliant strength Where fire emblem. Perhaps one of those quote-untold hidden gems kids on the internet love to talk about.

Pixel Game Maker Series Kingdom Fighter ($13.99)

Are we interested in an indie fighting game with local multiplayer? Maybe. You get eight (at first, anyway) different characters to play in this one, each with their own attacks and special moves. You can unlock more characters and costumes by playing through the story mode. I haven’t been able to play this one and can’t seem to find any prints of it. I guess fight fans might want to give it a shot given how little action we’ve seen in the genre lately, but do so at your discretion.

Underland: The Rise ($3.99)

It is the direct sequel to underground earth, which was a decent little puzzle platformer for the price. And unsurprisingly, it’s also a decent little puzzle platformer for its price. You get thirty new levels to play with new interesting puzzle ideas to confuse you with.

Sakura Succubus 5 ($9.99)

Wow, we’re up to five now on Switch, huh? I guess people really don’t care about these edited versions. Either way, this is another visual novel where Hiroki adds another woman or two to his harem. A princess! And its good, oddly enough. There are choices to be made as you go that will determine how happy you will be with an ending.

Beatus Creation Solitaire ($19.99)

So how can a simple Spider Solitaire game cost twenty dollars? Well, you bring licensed content. Now, I’m not going to pretend that I’m anything other than the most basic of VTuber fans. I like Inugami Korone, Nekomata Okayu and Himemori Luna. If I fancy a quality gremlin, I might watch Amelia Watson. But I never even understood from Beatus Creation, the VTuber characters that are at the heart of this game. On closer inspection, they were apparently created by Inside System, the developer of the black witch Games. They don’t seem to be very popular, but hey, maybe some of you are fans. So you play Spider Solitaire, earn coins, use those coins to unlock Beatus Creation themed items like stickers and themes, and that’s about the size of this one. VTubers lend their voices to the game, and you get extra puzzles to solve on top of the standard mode. Twenty bones, though? Hmm.

Pride Dance Out & Proud ($14.99)

This came out a while ago on Steam as Pride Race, where it seems to have received a fairly good reception. You can choose to play either as a standard rhythm game where you push buttons to the rhythm or as a very unique real-time strategy game where you have to manage your Pride Parade, protect them from threats and use leaders to increase the power of the Parry. There are also boss battles against some people who may not like Pride Parades, one of which is particularly enormously– known political figure. Be warned that, like the real thing, it’s very vibrant and a bit flashy, so may not be safe for photosensitive people.

Eye Exercise – Ver. Kompeito ($1.99)

It’s pretty much a standard side-scrolling endless pilot, with one major gimmick in place. When you start playing, the screen splits in two. You’re supposed to do this Magic Eye trick to see a 3D image while you’re playing. If you look really hard, you might even see a sailboat. If that sounds like a terrible way to play a game…you might be right. Even the eShop description warns against playing more than five minutes at a time.


(North American online store, US prices)

A few rarities in today’s new sales list, that’s for sure. MLB The Show 22 has its first post-launch sale, and it’s solid. Savage Weapons Reloaded and the harvest moon the games don’t go on sale very often, and I can at least say the former is a must-have. Anyone with a penchant for two-stick shooters more or less needs Xeno Crisis in their collection. As for the outbox, this is your last chance to get Dreadrock Dungeons at its exceptional introductory price. You might also want to consider some of the THQ Nordic games on sale, as not all of them appear every time the publisher releases one. Finally, the Subnautical Games. If you like your survival experiences, they’re both great.
