This Week in Games: Apr 13 – 18


We are all about the small screen this week with great pixel and Australian made titles for the Switch and one of the great Point & Click finally making it to the Xbox One after over a decade. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting this week on Thursday is the pixel fun of Super Pixel Racers for the Nintendo Switch. Previously released for Steam this title is perfectly suited to the Nintendo Switch giving you that SNES feel with a current gen title as you take your racer around the track in a ton of different race modes including Rally, Takedown and Drifting to name a few.

Friday brings the synth arena brawler HyperJam to the Nintendo Switch! We spoke to one of the creators of this Australian made title from Bit Dragon last year before it’s release on Steam, PlayStation and Xbox but now it’s coming to your portable this week.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention is just for the Xbox One players with the gorgeous point and click robot adventure Machinarium arriving on the platform this Friday. Taking control of a small bot in a bit robot city this title follows in the lineage of titles like Kings Quest, Sam and Max Hit the Road and many more from the SCUMM era. If you haven’t played this one since it’s original release on Steam back in 2009 you really need to.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
