Morphite first hit the App Store in late September, and like most Crescent Moon games, was received very well on our forums. We awarded it Game of the Week and in that post expand on what makes Morphite so special. In a nutshell, it's a pocket-sized space exploration game that's kinda-sorta similar to No Man's Sky. As rad as the game is, it's primarily controlled using a set of virtual joysticks to handle all your first person movement and camera positioning. Even the best virtual joysticks in these games never feel that ideal, making using a MFi controller the idea way to play in my eyes.

But what if you don't have a MFi controller and do have a Nintendo Switch? Or just prefer playing stuff on the Switch lately? Well, Morphite is now available on the Nintendo eShop with one (significant) caveat: It'll cost you almost twice as much as it does on mobile. The Switch version of the game is currently selling for $14.99 versus eight bucks on iOS. (I totally think the game is totally worth $15, and in a different world would also be priced that way on mobile.)

It's been really cool seeing so much indie stuff on the Switch, and while everyone who owns the console is probably busy plowing through Super Mario Odyssey, Morphite is another great pick up for the console. Or, hell, save some cash and grab it on mobile. It's a great game regardless of where you play it.

    I held off for the switch version and now that I'm just putzing around post-game in Odyssey I think its Morphite time

    Just FYI it's been on PS4 and Steam for awhile, too

    Too bad there's not a universal cloud save! Start on iPhone, switch to Switch, pick up where you left off. Still waiting on iCloud support on the iOS version.

      iCloud support for Morphite is my one caveat!

      Cloud save would be neat, tho with MFI controller support and gamevice you've essentially got the same thing

      • Wizard of Odyssey

        Only sorta-kinda ... though I suppose I could AirPlay it to the AppleTV's big screen.

        Yes or a Bluetooth controller and HDMI adapter

    The switch version is HORRIBLE. Poor frame rates and control. Scanning is a complete frustrating nightmare. The iOS version on iPhone 8 is like butter. Heck, even my SE runs it better than the switch. Im out $15 :/
