Best Nintendo Switch Games #24 – Snake Pass

Developer: Sumo Digital

Synopsis: Forget everything you knew about platformers, and step into the scaly skin of a snake in Snake Pass. Snake Pass forces you to rethink a video game obstacle course by using your long, slithery body to climb, wrap around, and swing through colorful 3D levels–fifteen in total. Noodle the Snake, guided by Doodle the Bird, must navigate the obstacles in Haven Tor to get rid of unwanted visitors in their home.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Very few games anymore manage to rethink platforming in a way that’s truly unique. Added gimmicks or powers do little to force players into mental gymnastics, but Snake Pass provides a fresh diversion. By keeping it simple with a smaller number of levels, Sumo Digital was able to put an increased amount of time and detail into each one, resulting in a visually and musically pleasing adventure that may tie you in snakey knots before the end.
