Just a few weeks in the past we had the third in our ‘Reader Suggestions’ collection that includes a dozen community-nominated gems that slipped by means of our overview web however which Nintendo Life readers imagine deserve some love and a spotlight.
Properly, we had so many nominations for Half 3 that we have determined to deliver the subsequent entry within the collection ahead with one other twelve nominees. In truth, we have even acquired a handful extra ready within the wings, so if there are different video games you’d prefer to see featured, be happy to observe the directions on the finish of the article and nominate different entries — maybe we’ll get on to Half 5 before we initially deliberate, too.
Thanks to everybody who responded. As with the final articles, we have discounting a number of nominations for video games we now have in reality reviewed and assembled the next checklist of video games we missed. As earlier than, every entry includes a transient person remark (frivolously edited for brevity or spelling in some circumstances), plus a trailer for some flavour. There’s additionally a ballot on the finish the place you may hopefully get a way for the way different readers really feel about these video games.
So let’s have a look — in no specific order — at one other batch of video games NL readers suggest searching for.

This is what NL reader cherryghost14 has to say about Eagle Island:
Eagle Island is a really enjoyable and difficult recreation, that I do not suppose will get the eye it deserves. It’s a 2D platformer with some rogue-lite components and procedurally generated ranges.
What stands out to me is the fight. Your owl companion is used as a projectile assault, and you’ll construct up combos to revive mana and well being. There are a number of totally different biomes, and skills to unlock as you go. A free growth lately launched with a brand new character and 45 new creator-designed ranges.

Toshiro_Baloney was impressed by Shaolin vs Wutang:
I do know… it’s made by one man and the preventing is fairly barebones. However the effort and presentation on show is magnificent. Each fighter is modelled after well-known Kung Fu film actors/characters, the sound/music is definitely licensed from these movies (and punches you within the face). And whereas the motion appears at first uninspired, it’s virtually Virtua Fighter-esque in being easy-to-learn-hard-to-master.
It’s as shut as one will discover to enjoying an outdated Kung Fu film and my coronary heart grew an entire different measurement whereas doing so.

Justin discovered puzzler Linelight to be a chilled expertise:
Linelight is a delightfully lovely recreation whose minimalist setting and music make for a calming, however nonetheless difficult puzzle fixing expertise. The entire recreation takes place on a line, and there’s no speaking or plot. Simply transferring alongside a line. However more and more difficult puzzle mechanics are launched to get you from level A to level B. Keep away from getting caught by enemies, or use their actions to your benefit! Or put the controller down and simply get misplaced staring on the superbly designed traces and listening to probably the greatest soundtracks round.
AstroTheGamosian had good issues to say about visible novel If My Coronary heart Had Wings:
A darling visible novel a few boy named Aoi who comes again to his hometown, meets outdated and new mates, enrolls at school, joins a membership the place they construct and fly gliders, and falls in love (you may select between Kotori, a paraplegic you meet to start with of the sport; Ageha, your childhood pal; Amane, the top of the Hovering Membership; and the dual ladies Asa and Yoru who’re first-years on the college).
The artwork model is gorgeous, the music is wonderful, the characters are enjoyable and full of life, every with their very own personalities, and the story is participating, making you wish to know what occurs subsequent. It’s ripe for an anime adaptation, for my part. In fact, the extra graphic content material has been eliminated for the North American localization, however a patch does exist to revive it; nonetheless, this patch is just for the PC model of the sport.
holygeez03 stored issues transient whereas recommending Down in Bermuda:
Easy puzzles with a very good mixture of issue… charming artwork model… respectable story to maintain you engaged.

Low_ink was impressed by BQM -BlockQuest Maker-:
It is basically a Zelda dungeon maker, with deep sufficient mechanics to not get stale shortly. The system in place for getting new course components is superb, not like SMM2. On high of constructing and enjoying folks’s ranges, there are some dev made ranges too! Whereas a bit too arduous for me, I am certain some folks would enormously get pleasure from them. I like to recommend it to anybody wanting a Zelda Maker of their life.
