    Overall, Treasure Tracker is a real gem of a game. It’s also beautiful; I was stunned by it on Wii U, but the visuals have only gotten better on Switch. It’s bright, cheery, and wildly creative from an aesthetic standpoint. Each stage is like a diorama, making the game feel like the player is interacting with toys, rather than lines of code. The soundtrack isn’t especially varied, likely because most stages don’t require a lot of time to beat, but I’d have appreciated a few more tracks to spice things up.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is an absolute joy to behold, from its cute visual styling and delicious soundtrack and audio utterances from the main characters, to the expertly crafted self-contained stages, jam-packed with smart puzzles to solve and a plethora of goodies to uncover. This was one of those Wii U gems that thoroughly deserved another shot at the limelight, and with its excellent new additions now, it is indeed time to shine bright.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker highlights one of the best secondary characters in the Super Mario universe, and gives him a stellar adventure. Fans of the Wii U version should pick it up for the portable experience and extra levels while those who didn’t play the game in 2014 will find a lot to love. It’s another fantastic addition to the continually growing Switch library, and I can’t wait to see what Nintendo does with Captain Toad in the future.

    Another great Wii U game that is made better by the Nintendo Switch's portability. It's a fun experience that doesn't overstay its welcome, but definitely does feel repetitive in certain areas.

    Everything about Captain Toad is overwhelmingly charming.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker remains an excellent game that feels perfectly at home on the Switch. The short-burst gameplay of the diorama-puzzle levels suits the portable nature of the system to a tee. It still looks, sounds and plays as well as it did on the Wii-U, so if it didn’t hold your attention then, the lackluster additional features aren’t likely to change your feelings now. If you’re a Switch owner looking for a joyous, simple, unique puzzle game, then Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is worth some permanent space on your memory card.

    There is a charmingly competent puzzler here, yet it’s hard to recommend without an abundance of caveats. If you’ve yet to play the Captain Toad and solving cute and charming puzzles, it could be worth a shot if it drops in price, even though the asking price is lower than most to begin with. If possible, and if you own a Wii U, you would be better off dusting that system down and playing it on there.

    Cute little game, perfectly made for handheld. Controls are good, no slowdowns. Technically solid. Imho it has much charm and very highCute little game, perfectly made for handheld. Controls are good, no slowdowns. Technically solid. Imho it has much charm and very high quality. What i dont get is why people think this would be different game, just because its on Switch now...and downrate it on that. So i ask: did you cry when an old movie was redone/changed just for a new medium? I guess not...
    Since im playing 1p and on handheld, this is my rating for excatly that.

    Recibimos un nuevo port de Wii U para poder disfrutar en Switch, con la posibilidad de jugarlo esta vez 100% en modo portátil. "Captain Toad:Recibimos un nuevo port de Wii U para poder disfrutar en Switch, con la posibilidad de jugarlo esta vez 100% en modo portátil. "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker" es uno de los grandes exclusivos de Nintendo. Y con toda la calidad que lo caracterizó en su lanzamiento, vuelve con la misma frescura para poder entretener al mundo de estos mini escenarios y sus secretos.
    Basado en los niveles protagonizados por Captain Toad en "Super Mario 3D World", tenemos una juego completo de niveles que podremos explorar con la restricción de no poder saltar. Esto crea una de los más innovadores juegos de puzzles que hay, todo desarrollado de forma tal que cualquiera pueda disfrutar de éste spin-off y fascinarse con lo hermoso que se ve.
    Si lo jugaste en Wii U, es difícil recomendarlo, pero si va a ser tu primer experiencia bien vale la pena sumarlo a tu colección. Es un exclusivo del cual espero algún día ver una secuela.

    El Spin-Off que le dio el rol de protagonismo a Captain Toad aparece en Switch y 3DS con el fin de hacer llegar al mayor público el granEl Spin-Off que le dio el rol de protagonismo a Captain Toad aparece en Switch y 3DS con el fin de hacer llegar al mayor público el gran título de plataformas y puzzles inspirado en los mini niveles en "Super Mario 3D World".
    En "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker" controlamos Captain Toad en la travesía de salvar a Toadette y recoger la mayor cantidad de monedas y diamantes que se le crucen, con la única regla de no poder saltar. Como la descripción lo hace ver es un juego bastante sencillo, divertido de completar.
    Ya era un excelente juego en Wii U, por lo que su traslado a Switch no tiene pormenores salvo el hecho original de no es muy largo, aún si te pones en la tarea de conseguir el 100%, debo admitir que el port me pareció bastante sólido, hay unos cuantos niveles extras inspirados en Super Mario Odyssey que son un detalle para quien ha jugado anteriormente el juego.
    Ideal para cualquier miembro de la familia, sin hacer diferencia de edad o género éste juego es un recomendado si es la primera vez que vas a jugarlo. Creo que la Switch le quita algo de magia por no poder jugarse en dos pantallas pero igualmente se disfruta.

    It was an OKAY game until the last level, where you had to collect 5000 coins. Nintendo, ARE YOU **** KIDDING ME?! ARE YOU SERIOUS ABOUT THAT?It was an OKAY game until the last level, where you had to collect 5000 coins. Nintendo, ARE YOU **** KIDDING ME?! ARE YOU SERIOUS ABOUT THAT? Really, this can't be true. That game is a waste of time, don't buy it, it isn't worth the price.
    Even as a free to play game it wouldn't deserve a higher score than 5/10.
