If you’re thinking of buying MUJO on Nintendo Switch, perhaps it’s time to highly reconsider your purchase.
The puzzle action game, which originally launched on smartphones a few years ago, is a great example of how not to port a game to Switch. Mujo’s developers, Oink Games, didn’t bother adapting the game to the screen ratio of the Switch. Thus the game ended up with two awkward empty spaces on both the left and right.
What’s even more damaging is although Mujo is a fully priced game on the Switch (USD9.99), microtransactions still exist in the game, which can cost up to USD45. In case you aren’t aware, the mobile version is free to download.
Let’s hope indies will learn a lesson or two from Mujo before cashing in on the Switch hype.
