Rain City Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET You play as a Cat, who has travelled to Rain City to find his sister who has gone missing. You will be taken on a strange adventure, helping the residents of Rain City along the way. The story is a nice short one with weird and wonderful characters, that will have you invested in, for the short time you play. Rain City is a Point-and-Click Adventure game. There’s not too much to the mechanics. The gameplay is centred on puzzle rooms. These vary, as solving some are part of a bigger puzzle, while others will just be small self-contained puzzles, that advance the plot in some way. The controls are fine, and the addition of touch screen controls are always welcome in a game like this. The only slight issue with the touch screen; when you tap for the Cat to move, he will walk into a surface and hug it to the designated area. It seems the Cat has been coded to walk from where ever he is on the screen until he is horizontally in line with the destination, and then a straight to the point clicked. Something just felt off and unpolished about this way of movement.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

Luckily, you can still use the left stick for more tradition movement control. I only used the touch screen to move objects around the screen for ease, but even then there were issues sometimes trying to select items this way. Luckily I only used this for a couple of puzzles. The big downside with all games like Rain City is replayability is almost zero. Once you know a puzzle that’s really it. I enjoyed the puzzles on offer here; some required some really out the box thinking. Then some seemed almost impossible, and took a while of just staring at the screen, then cursing yourself when the answer is right in front of you! There was few translation problems, but nothing that causes too much issue. As touched on earlier, some of the touch screen functionality could be better. Again not a massive problem as you can still use the traditional controls. The developers of RainCity, Cotton Game, had previously only dipped their toes into Xbox waters with Mr Pumpkin Adventure. 2021 seems to be changing that. They’ve trawled their inventory for Mr Pumpkin 2: Kowloon Walled City, and now we’re getting one of their more modern releases, RainCity. Keep ‘em coming.

I was unsure whether I was on the right track or not..

Cotton Game’s games are a snug fit for the Xbox, as they’re point-and-click adventures that are simple and console-friendly. They achieve a mood that you can’t find elsewhere. Every scene in their games feels like you’re playing on a sketchbook, with ink blotter pages and wonderful watercolour art that’s so effective you could rip it off the screen and put it in a frame. But the kids’ book characters tend to have dour, adult problems, as everyone is just about getting by. Poverty, oppression and disease are common. And where other games will position you as the hero, in the games of Cotton Games, you’re a passerby. People barely notice you as you wander into their rooms, taking their stuff for future puzzles. Their lives are too full to bother with you. RainCity starts with the main character, ‘Cat’, arriving in the perpetually raining city. They’re here to see their sister, a journalist, who was last seen holed up in the local hostel. But she’s clearly gone, and no-one has much of an idea where. A camera lies in her room with photos of a few of the city’s core characters, and it’s down to you to investigate.Space Raiders in Space Switch NSP

As you wander the first rooms of RainCity, it’s abundantly clear that it’s a pretty game. Not in a flashy manner, but in a subtly beautiful way. As with previous Cotton Game titles, nothing feels digital: everything feels hand-painted onto thick cartridge paper. Every scene is delightful, particularly when Cat emerges onto the roofs of the city. The audio gets the memo too, as it also comes across as analogue. Rain pitter-patters onto surfaces, and the soundtrack follows a similar percussive pattern. The controls are simple, as you have direct control over Cat and move them close to areas-of-interest, where button prompts appear. You get to pick up items, but you’ll never have more than five or six at a given time, so the puzzles aren’t convoluted. Different from Mr Pumpkin, Cat doesn’t automatically use items in situations where they’d be of benefit. Instead, RainCity opts for a system where you press RT to highlight an item, and then drag it onto the screen. If it hits something of use, the item will automatically be used.

Characters.

It’s a new take on point-and-clicking, and we’re not totally convinced. It’s too easy to ‘sweep’ the screen to trigger an interaction, as there aren’t many rooms or items. It makes puzzles occasionally trivial, when Mr Pumpkin at least required you to potter over to an area to see if you could interact with bits of it. As a counterpoint, we did appreciate not having to ‘do a LucasArts’ and manage a huge inventory alongside dozens of potential verbs. It means you move through RainCity at a fair old click. So, you’re stepping through RainCity, moving from the hotel to a submerged courtyard, a tower block and then a factory, as your sister’s trail gets stronger. Minigames and puzzles pop up every ten minutes or so, and they have a tendency to invite more friction than the average Mr Pumpkin puzzle – or any other graphic adventure, in fact. A minecart puzzle has you slowly moving backwards and forwards between multiple screens, which is never complicated, just tedious. A ‘Lost Woods’-style Legend of Zelda puzzle feels worn and dusty, and we’re getting tired of them now.Parasite Black

It feels like Cotton Game have decided to be more ambitious with their puzzling in this outing, asking you to solve things across multiple screens, rather than engage with the pocket, Layton-like puzzles from their previous adventures. But by doing so, it clashes against the slow pace of the main character, and they tend to get more drawn out then we personally liked. There are only three examples of these drawn-out puzzles or minigames in RainCity, so it’s not critical. In fact, RainCity isn’t long at all. It’s sub-Mr Pumpkin, and one of the shortest point-and-clicks that we’ve played. We clocked in at roughly two hours, so keep that in mind when it comes to assessing whether the £4.99 is worth it. By RainCity’s end, we felt satisfied but not enlightened. It’s a journey with barely a kink in it (a slight twist occurs halfway through), when kinks would have been welcome. It plays out exactly as you’d expect. When the art is often magical, the plot could have given it more to work with. RainCity is a short, delicate adventure, like a point-and-click you picked up at a craft fair.

Graphics.

Everything is beautifully authored and painstakingly cared for. It doesn’t have anything to say, nor does it make you feel much, and there’s nothing new within. But it’s charming and worth £4.99. Dedicate two hours, and let RainCity wash over you. Words have a pivotal place on this release, and the way this band uses them is fundamental to their art. Poetry edges into the centre point of their lives, and it has been used honestly. Rain City Drive is a band driven by consequence, and they crave assurance. Their music highlights day to day struggles, and the band is focused on giving us an insight into their dysfunctional lives. The music hits like a storm, and the electric atmosphere doesn’t halt at any moment. It’s those commanding riffs and solid vocals that really become joyous and majestic to listen to. Nothing overwhelms the music, but the themes do spill out. These themes are dark, morose at times. They also tell us that this band certainly does feel pain and the constraints of a sorrow laden existence. Though, the act is not going to fade out.

‘Gardens Of Misery’ develops on, securing interest quickly. The track bolsters the album, and is truly a standout. Those empowering guitar strokes merge into the thick atmosphere really well. ‘Nothing Left’ doesn’t quell the resilience. The song opens with blistering instrumentals, and the chorus cuts in finely. The vocal work offers sincerity. ‘Eternity’ reminds us that the band can cool things off. Though this track raises the volume perfectly, the chorus frantically becomes a pulsating part of a discerning story. Rain City Drive has so much to tell and their self-titled release only gives us half the story. Still, it’s a highly enjoyable half all the same. New name but the same passion, same swagger and same post hardcore with pop sensibilities sound, it’s Rain City Drive and they’ve got a banger album here. This is one of those reviews where the words ‘preaching to the choir’ apply. Rain City Drive’s success is immense and deserved. Their fanbase; large, dedicated and diverse, adores this band so when we describe this album as being top-shelf quality, few will be surprised.

Nor will anyone be surprised that it is an album of anthems. Eleven in total that range from energetic pop-infused club hits to heavy, riff-driven bouts of post-hardcore intensity. It’s Rain City Drive and their confidence is at an all-time high. You can’t really expect any different though as they have the music to back up their swagger. Yet, it’s not arrogance that comes through with songs like Waiting on You, Dreams, Psycho, Blood Runs Cold or If I Was Right. It’s assuredness. Rain City Drive know they have the songs and the fanbase is going to absolutely lap this up. It’s also an album likely to win them even more as, once again, the crossover appeal is massive. Not poppy enough to put off fans of heavier music but not so heavy that pop fans will run away. It sits in a really comfortable place in between the two, even if certain tracks lean to one sound over the other. Of course, if you have a specific taste that doesn’t line-up with Rain City Drive and you’re not willing to open your mind, you’ll likely give this a miss. A shame as it really is a good album. Rain City has about 3 hours of content and a nice aesthetic for such a low price, but there are some problems with puzzle logic and interface.The Spirit and the Mouse Switch NSP
