Best Nintendo Switch Games #26 – Tumbleseed

Developer: Benedict Fritz, aeiowu

Synopsis: You, a seed, must get to the top of the mountain. The mountain is full of holes and rain and enemies and rocks and obstacles. Seed-you is controlled via gyro controls, tilting the platform the seed sits on back and forth to avoid the dangers of the mountain while collecting offensive and defensive upgrades to help bolster your survival chances.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Tumbleseed isn’t just rolling around; it is an incredibly difficult game. It will take you some time to get used to how the gyro controls affect your seed, and the game is relentless in throwing enemies at your pathetic, rolling character as it steadily makes its way up the mountain. It will take patience and practice to perfect the skills necessary for your seed to achieve its mountaintop goal, but the rewarding gameplay loop of struggle, failure, and improvement through that failure will see you through.
