Here's a game with probably the weirdest release date of all-time. Captain Toad came out in the first week of 2015. With almost zero promotion. I had actually forgotten all about it. Who's been playing it? Is it worth checking out?
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a strange little puzzle game that started life as a mini-game in Super Mario 3D World. I enjoyed those mini-games very much. In some way they were the most interesting part of (what I thought was) a pretty unadventurous 3D Mario game. I'm super keen to check this out.
Then why haven't I? Well it's mostly a question of convenience. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was released at a time when I wasn't even thinking about new video games. I was either lounging around on my couch eating leftover lamb or playing catch-up on all the games I hadn't played in 2014.
Like I said: strange release date.
One of the most attractive things about Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is most definitely the price. It's a Nintendo retail release but you can find it for less that $50 if you check out the right stores. The RRP is $59.95, which is a good bit cheaper than what you might expect. By all reports, however, it is a little short. That suits me just fine, but others might feel a little short-changed.
How have you found the game so far?
