The Nintendo Switch games have always delivered top-quality products that people can enjoy all on Switch Lite, Standard Switch, and the new OLED Switch. With that being said, the Nintendo Switch is somewhat five years old and it depicts no sign or inclination of slowing down anyway. Nintendo’s delivery, display, and design are everything that converts a simple concept into a purposefully driven tactic game.
While many echoes not to judge a book by its cover, most gamers do it unknowingly by looking at a game’s graphics. Some people even judge a game by its presentation and even its cover art. With that being said, these are the five Nintendo games that are way more complicated than they look –
Hallow Knight’s greatness comes not from its prominent amount of intricacy but because of the fact that it is Hallownest itself. The depth and vibe of the game depict from its Tim-Burton-inspired setup that is equally visible in its characters as well. A poisonous swapping with a layer of acidic spring, a subterranean lake, and a samurai village is everything that adds quite a complexity to the game.
While Pac-Man looks like a BR version of the arcade classic, it is much likely a complete different version of it. Talking about the complexity of the game, even the top-notch players don’t get to clear the boards and take all the ghosts, fruits, and dots. It could be only done by stressing on figuring out how to turn the game’s conditions in the player’s favor.
Archlion Saga is much likely a game for the players who want to dip their toes into the JRPG genre. From the structure to its design and the combat, this game has multiple standard issues and this is exactly what makes the game much more complicated than what it looks. While it took inspiration from games such as Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Phantasy Star, players will also discover some Easter eggs referring to the healthy side of the game.
Golf Story truly suits the retro-styled theme of an indie game. While the game is exactly what its name suggests, there’s much more packed within the game’s RPG story. Talking about the looks, the graphics feel like that of a standard sports game but when it comes to the gameplay, the player’s journey becomes much more complicated than what it looks like.
Hyper Light Drifter
This game is not about what a player sees while playing it, but what all is left behind. Hyper Light Drifter is a neon-based cyberpunk game that is based on a post-apocalyptic situation of a planet. As a result, much of the game’s talking is done through its environment and visuals and not by its characters. Additionally, there is quite a heavy lore to this game but apparently, none of its form, visual or verbal, could depict all that is happening. While the players could only speculate and theorize, it is only the developer who knows everything behind the scenes.
