Created by Nintendo’s Intelligent Systems, Panel De Pon (1995) features an ever-filling well of blocks which players must clear by matching three of the same shape, the twist being that only one move can be made at a time.
Panel De Pon was repurposed in the west as Tetris Attack and featured Yoshi characters.
Also joining the Switch Online library is Wild Guns, a SNES cowboy shooting gallery game; Operation Logic Bomb, a SNES cybernetic sci-fi shooter; plus side-scrolling, exploration-based NES platformer Rygar.
Nintendo recently reset free Switch Online trials for those who have already used one, granting them an additional seven days of free play.
Nintendo’s official game blurbs follow:
Wild Guns – The Kid gang and their army of robots have taken over! Blast your way through villainous outlaws, diabolical robots and towering, screen-filling bosses. Fortunately, you’ve got plenty of moves to help you survive the firepower headed your way. You’ll need a sharp eye and quick-on-the-draw reflexes to survive on your own. Or team up with a friend and go out blazing in two-player co-op.
Panel de Pon – As the stack of puzzle pieces rises, think fast to match panels and set off cascading chain reactions and combos. You’ll have to make strategic choices quickly to counteract the relentless competitor attacks from above. A selection of single-player and two-player modes and options provides escalating action and zippy fun. This title originally launched for the Super Famicom in 1995, but this is the first time this version of the game will be available in the U.S. Though this title was never translated into English, it may seem familiar!
Operation Logic Bomb – Agent Logan has been fitted with bioelectronic implants that grant him superior strength, reflexes and analytical abilities. He’s been charged with a mission to save the Subspace Particle Transfer Project. Now it’s up to him to infiltrate, neutralize the intruders and rescue the scientists in a top-down shooter with giant bosses and frenzied action that doesn’t let up.
Rygar (NES) – An old legend proclaimed, “When the peaceful land is covered with evil spirits, a brave soldier will be brought to life from the dead.” Luckily, Rygar, the mythical hero from Argus, has arrived in order to defeat the evil king Ligar and his army of dangerous beasts. Join forces with Rygar for a hybrid action-adventure game with a distinct blend of platforming and role-playing elements!
