Everything on this list that I have heard of is fantastic. That makes me very optimistic about the ones I haven't heard of!

I saw the Mini Motorways listing and thought "Oh no, somebody has ripped off mini metro!" Luckily, it's the same people, and it looks awesome. Can't wait til it leaves the Apple ecosystem.

Glad to see so many on Switch, and also glad to see Derek Yu getting overall recognition. That said, Spelunky 2 is kind of uninteresting to me and the people I talk to. It's maybe inherent in trying to recapture that kind of magic, because Spelunky already had two somewhat distinct versions that are among the greatest games of all time.

Mini Motorways feels like a more frustrating version of Mini Metro -- in my experience there's ways to trigger deadlock where cars don't make progress even though they could clearly move. And some high level jank where you don't connect 'bad' houses, or deliberately pave over places to prevent destinations from spawning there. Also, the titular motorway feature is hard to get and I'm not even sure they help.

I am definitely going to check some of these out! Thousand Year Vampire is intriguing.
