Last month, we published a report on The Bullet: Time of Revenge. This is a “new” version on Switch eShop, which turned out to be an “asset flip”; a pre-made and purchased asset pack was given New name and sent to Nintendo for eShop lottery.
Although this may affect many people in the wrong way, this approach is technically completely legal-the asset package is from Unity Asset Store And it is completely resold within the scope of the license terms-and Nintendo certification is not (and never was) a quality test, even if the game bears the Nintendo quality seal. If the game loads and meets a basic set of technical requirements, that’s great.
It seems that two asset flip games will land on the Switch eShop on June 8th: Bring Honey Home and Red Ball Escape, both of which are from Benjamin Kistler.
Unity Asset Store Page The latter indicates that the template created and sold by Fox Games is “ready to publish.” Compare the asset pack trailer below with the screenshots on the NOA game page:
There are also some screenshots from Nintendo’s game page:
Youku Channel Stars or shovel Has been running a program called Asset flip warning (It contains strong language, so please click carefully) I hope players can understand the origin of this type of game.
Red Ball Escape is currently priced at US$2.99/2.60 on the Switch eShop, while the hexadecimal-based puzzle game Bring Honey Home is priced at US$7.99/7.19, which is essentially an asset pack. Hexagonal puzzle pieces Packaged and sold on Switch. Stars or shovel Open the free demo APK of Hexa Puzzle Block and find that the screenshots of the first level and the first level of the eShop are the same:
With the Switch eShop flooded with premium games lost in the flood, it’s disappointing to see these types of cynical versions flooding digital storefronts and making good things harder to find. Hope to see the asset rollovers highlighted above, and you will be better able to avoid them when browsing the latest standalone releases.
Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on this practice in the polls and comments below.
Thanks Dean for the tip!
