Part 1 of 4.

May has arrived and with it, a treasure trove full of games is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch eShop. With so many worthwhile games to choose from, it was a near impossible task to select just 16 games, but we buckled down and got through it. Without any further ado, here’s our first four picks for May:

Pick one of the ten starting puzzles to get on your way.

Each puzzle can be played in one of four difficulty levels:

  • 48 pieces
  • 48 pieces with rotated pieces
  • 108 pieces
  • 108 pieces with rotated pieces

The pieces are laid out on the screen – the player simply scrolls through the available pieces and selects a piece.

Puzzles offer one or more additional features for the player to use:

  • GRID – Show the grid of the puzzle pieces.
  • EDGES – Filter the pieces to show only the edge pieces.
  • HELP – Automatically place one piece in the correct position.
  • PEEK – Show the full picture.

Some of the puzzles have forced difficulty settings (e.g. no hints, timer, no peeking).

  • Levels – Puzzles are grouped into levels. Once all of the initial 10 puzzles have been completed, the next level unlocks. There are 75 puzzles in total.
  • Leaderboards – The game will include leaderboards to allow players to post scores with their friends and the rest of the world.

Urbek City Builder (May 4, 2023)

Publisher: RockGame

Genre: Simulation, Other, Puzzle

No. of Players: 1 (Single System)

File Size: 469 MB

Price: $18.99


In Urbek, you will be able to build a city of your own design! Manage its natural resources, improve the quality of life of the population, and build its neighbourhoods in your own way.

  • Neighbourhoods – Breathe life into your city by building different neighbourhoods. Do you want a bohemian neighbourhood? Build bars, parks and libraries, but keep a low population density nearby. Do you want a bourgeois neighbourhood? You need parks and luxury shops.
  • Manage – There is no money in Urbek. Instead, you will have to build everything with your own resources, such as food, coal, or skilled work. There are more than 30 different resources to manage! Manage your natural resources well, so that they do not run out before they can be replaced. How will you choose to produce the energy for your inhabitants and industries?
  • Educate – Education is fundamental! By producing enough qualified work and scientific work, you will be able to build more advanced buildings.
  • Observe – Move around at street level in order to get a more intimate sense of the city you are creating. See and feel the differences between neighborhoods the way your city’s residents do!
  • Organic growth – The growth of your city will be organic. Some constructions will appear according to the surrounding conditions. For example, buildings with more than two floors will appear in densely populated areas and with basic services.
    • You can place other buildings by yourself, but they need some conditions. For instance, the local market needs to be close to the farms. The university should have some high schools nearby, which, in turn, require nearby schools.

When it comes to designing your city, you have a variety of viable options. There are no buildings that are superior to others. Every decision will have its pros and cons. Bourgeois houses consume more food and need resources that cost more to produce, but will improve the quality of life of the residents there. On the other hand, improving the productivity of industries will produce more resources, but will diminish the quality of life for residents living in the area.

Scrap Bolts (May 6, 2023)


Genre: Action, Platformer, Arcade

No. of Players: 1 (Single System)

File Size: 83 MB

Price: $9.99


The screws are all scattered around, and you need to collect them all! This is a frenetic and fun platform game, inspired by classic games from the Golden Age of the Genesis.

All details regarding the games above were true at the time we sourced them directly from Nintendo’s own website. If there are any changes between now and each game’s eventual release, we apologize in advance and we hope you have enjoyed the selected titles so far. For even more games, we hope you come back for the next instalment.
