[Nintendo Switch] Wind Peaks Review
Wind Peaks from Actoon Studio is a great-looking and charming hidden object type of game on Nintendo Switch. Check our Wind Peaks review!
In Wind Peaks from Actoon Studio, you will take on a great-looking and charming hidden object type of game on Nintendo’s console. As expected, your goal is simple: interact with the many objects in each area you visit, so that you can locate the items shown at the bottom of the screen. Move bushes around, grab and drop objects, open and close doors, move a rock, dig where X marks the spot, do whatever it takes so that you can locate all items in order to move on to the next location.
You will use the left analog stick to move the camera around, while using the right analog stick to control the cursor on the screen, zooming in and out as needed by pressing the L and R buttons, respectively. When you want to interact with something, you’ll just have to press the A or ZR buttons. If you’re ever stuck, you can press and hold down the X button to get a hint. You can also play this one by using the console’s screen when using it in Portable or Tabletop Mode, or if you’re playing Wind Peaks on a Nintendo Switch Lite console.
Wind Peaks includes an in-game achievements system for you to work your way through. There are achievements tied to completing the first, second, fifth, tenth, and twelfth levels in the game, as well as for completing the whole game. Something to consider is that while the game has ten playable stages, story segments are also counted as their own entry. You can also unlock achievements for completing some more specific objectives, such as waking up the ranger, throwing 25 bottles in the trash, finding all cats in level 10, finding all three gnomes, throwing a bone to the dog, or finding Bigfoot!
If you’re in the mood for a great-looking and chill game to play on Nintendo Switch as you search for the required objects at your own pace while completing some bonus objectives, then Wind Peaks is a good option. You’ll be getting around a couple of hours of solid all-ages fun with your purchase, using the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con or the console’s touchscreen to find every last object on your list. Wind Peaks is out on Nintendo Switch with a $14.99 price.
