It's a game by QubicGames, almost everything from them and ForeverEntertainment is quasi shovelware.

I can't tell you how to spend 50 cents, I just know some of the games I have gotten from them seem really off, like a bad android to switch port, and like they may be more fun on a phone.

I urge you to SKIP these titles.
They're gaming the eShop by getting a ton of purchases as they can at this price but these games are all garbage.

I'm getting fed up with the switch shovelware, bouncy Bob was a waste of time and even a penny would be too much for that one.

I assume sarcasm there. Don't trick people into wasting cash on these.

There's a wide variety of gamers with different preferences and play styles beside yours. The fact that you believe this game is garbage and a waste of .49 cents is completely subjective. Let people figure it out for themselves if this is a good deal or not. Personally I think its great.

QubicGames also made Astro Bears Party which I recently picked up for $0.49 and my kids have gotten a few hours out of that one with their cousins. Thanks for the post. I'm going to try this one too.

I understand where you're coming from

I agree there's a lot of different play Styles out there.

This is obviously just in case of gaming the system though.

These are shovelware titles and I would hate to see the switch have a bunch of those on the eShop trending when somebody gets a brand new console and decides to pick up a few decently priced games

The big problem that the Nintendo Wii had was that a had a lot of garbage on the console.

I'm all for independent games and most of the games I put time into this year we're Indie titles but they were big names like dead cells, and hollow knight.

I see your reasoning. And I can side with you on that. Quality/Quantity right?

I think so.

It's one of the reasons why PlayStation keeps winning over the Xbox platform, they just have too many good games on the PlayStation so even though the Xbox has more powerful Hardware currently with the Xbox One X, people will probably enjoy the PlayStation 4 base model better for the games.

I'm not a snob or anything, I mean I own both a switch and a PlayStation but I hardly find myself using the PlayStation anymore when there's so many amazing experiences in handheld mode on the switch.

I'm also just going to follow up here

If a game is worth anything, I think it's safe to say that it will be recognized as good by people on social media and the word will get out and it will be able to sell for more than $0.49 on its own.

This going happening with these $0.49 games is the same thing that people have to do on Amazon to get their products like books to trend well...

You can go on YouTube and look at independent authors who publish on Kindle...

... You'll see them admitting that they had to give hundreds of copies of their books away for free because Amazon counts a free download the same as a sale...

That gets gets it into the trending list.

A complete gaming of the system.

I suspect the eShop has a $0.49 minimum and that's why so many games with no reviews are being priced this way.

Interesting point. Considering the fact that they are Indie Devs.

QubicGames also did Robonauts, a very well reviewed indie game, so they definitely put out more than just shovelware.

That said this one isn't nearly as well reviewed but a few people still liked it:

I picked this up and have been having fun with it this afternoon. Simple controls and just enough challenge. I find myself saying "just one more game" and the play a dozen more rounds. I recommend it for the price.
