Best Nintendo Switch Games #30 – Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime

Developer: Asteroid Base

Synopsis: 1-4 players (with the single player also controlling an AI helper) are on a space station together. Your mission? Rescue cute animals lost in space, but keep the ship flying and enemies at bay while you do so. The interior of the ship has multiple stations, each with a different function. Players must move between them intelligently to keep the ship moving, animals coming in, the ship defended and enemies brought down. Stations can be upgraded, but only true teamwork and coordination will keep the ship safe and save the animals.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Nintendo is a haven for co-op play and always has been, so Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime showing up on the system was a natural fit. The unique gameplay style requiring teamwork, focus, and skill as you fly the ship and try to capture cute space critters is sure to inspire friendship, especially with the mellow aesthetic and music. Play this game with the people you love, it’s a gorgeous, fun and silly ride.
