Three more retro games are being added to the Switch Online subscription service next week.
Nintendo will be adding three new SNES titles to the library on July 28 – Claymates, Jelly Boy and Bombuzal.
Claymates is a platformer made by the same team responsible for the ClayFighter fighting games. Players can transform into a variety of clay animals to reach different parts of each stage.
Jelly Boy is a similarly themed platformer that was only released in Europe. The hero is made of jelly and can form different shapes to bypass certain obstacles.
Bombuzal was originally released on the SNES as Ka-Blooey but appears to have been renamed for Switch Online (it was always known as Bombuzal on other platforms). It’s a puzzle game where players have to detonate all the bombs on an island without dying.
Here are Nintendo’s descriptions of the three new additions.
Switch Online – July game updates
Take on the role of Clayton, son of Professor Putty. Your father has made a breakthrough, and with the serum he’s created, living creatures can be turned into clay! You will face many dangers, but you have the ability to transform into five different animals. You’ll need them all to run, jump, fly, swim and climb your way past the obstacles in your path.
Jelly Boy (SNES)
In this platforming game originally released exclusively in Europe in 1995, you are Jelly Boy, candy given the spark of life by the power of lightning. You’ve come to life knowing one thing: You have to escape the candy factory. To get out, you’ll need to collect puzzle pieces and survive the enemy heavies trying to stop you. You’re sure to need all your wits, skills and shape-changing powers to make it through this wacky adventure.
Strategically detonate every bomb in each level while leaving yourself a safe place to stand when the dust settles. In this puzzle game, you’ll have to be quick, because time is short. Just make sure you remember to take the size of each explosion into account, or it could blow a hole in all your careful planning. Good luck, and have a blast!
