Thimbleweed park hits the mark

Thimbleweed park is a great side scrolling adventure that pits you in the town of thimbleweed with a population of 81. That's until a murder accures and your left to figure out the mystery along two agents that seem to have completely different opinions and reasons as to why they are there. I'm playing this on the Nintendo switch and I can honestly say I have not played many games of this type of genre but it is one of my favorite games on the switch. I have played 15+ hours on this game . I got stuck at many of parts but there's a hint right around the corner at any phone you can find to help you along the way. There's a little bit of swearing but it beeps it out so there's no need to cover your ears . I recommend this for 13+ it's great fun.
