Best Nintendo Switch Games #28 – Ittle Dew 2+

Developer: Ludosity

Synopsis: Ittle and Tippsie are back to their adventuring ways, this time on a funny little island seemingly designed for intrepid explorers just like them. In a top-down, action-adventuring romp, these two will travel through eight distinct dungeons to obtain the raft pieces necessary to sail home. But it’s hard to stay on task when there are so many hidden secrets and strange puzzles distracting you at every turn.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Too often, top-down action-adventures borrow too liberally from The Legend of Zelda and are describable as clones–fun for nostalgia, but not unique. Ittle Dew 2+ laughs at this designation and does what it can to iterate on the formula with new puzzle stylings and an open world so full of twists and turns that you can just as easily spend hours on this game as you can breeze through it accidentally. Its most distinctive feature is its ribbing humor, poking fun at everything from art to social media to itself. The “+” of the title hints at brand new dungeons that help pad out the campaign a bit more from the base game released previously on other platforms.
