This is such a cool idea. It's a pinball game but done in an adventure style with a whole world to explore. The last time I played something like this, it was Sonic Spinball and that was still just vertical boards like an actual pinball game.
I know there are a lot of fans of pinball games on Switch and other consoles. I urge you to go give this a try.
So far I've been really enjoying the exploration and the art direction.
Yeah, I got a code from NWR before the game's release, and Karen and I just devoured the game. We couldn't get enough of the art, the characters, the humorous dialogue. Karen especially appreciated that you can't die in it.
I was surprised by the difficulty of some puzzles: the game doesn't always make clear what's important to pay attention to. Just a warning for you guys out there. The dyes for your ball aren't just cosmetic.
Our save file is at 100% completion after, I dunno, probably over a dozen hours of playtime? Definitely recommended.
