For gamers out there looking for an excuse to explore and generally just enjoy discovery without things being too taxing, this delivers
There’s no doubt that when it comes to mid-to-high intensity games the eShop delivers a load of options. But what about people looking for something a little more low-key and soothing to simply enjoy rather than fight through? That’s where titles like Smushi Come Home are a refreshing option to have available, even if (by design) they’re not terribly taxing. You’ll be playing as a cute and simple mushroom, whisked away from his home and friends, who must chart their path back to them. What follows is a load of exploration and discovery, some fetch quest-y missions, some relatively light puzzles, and a pretty easygoing general vibe. Whether you’re a more seasoned gamer simply looking for a soothing break, a parent looking for a mild game to introduce your kids to with some training wheels of sorts, or simply someone who can find typical games overwhelming, this is a thoroughly pleasant choice to have available.
