    Today we're launching our orbital avoid-em-up Gyro Boss DX on Windows! (20% Launch Discount)

    Now available on Nintendo Switch! - https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/gyro-boss-dx-switch/

    The planet is under siege from an alien with a bizarre arsenal of weapons including bullets, bombs, lasers, squids, shurikens and boxing gloves! You must dodge wave after wave of challenging obstacles all while fixed in a 360-degree orbit around the alien spaceship. The battle can never truly be won, but with 50 objectives to complete, you'll have a lot more to do than chase highscores.

    I bought this today as there is a sale, so I thought I'd bump it, because it's a good and fun game to play. I can recommend it as an addictive time filler since it's so easy to die and restart. The goals or objectives help the replay value a lot. There are plenty of $1 ish games that I buy and this is one of the best. It has a good look, feel and variety of different micro challenges.

    Is this a proof that game made with GM:S2 can be port to Nintendo Switch?

    Thank you! :)

    Oh yes, absolutely, and several have been already (I think Undertale was the first). This isn't a secret, if you click "Console" on this page you can see GMS2 officially supports Nintendo Switch: https://www.yoyogames.com/get
