Certainly one of the crazier concepts for a game we have seen in recent times, King Oddball is set to land on the Switch's eShop with a bang - and there's not long to wait until it does.

You take control of a boulder (the King of boulders it would seem) with the aim of using your ridiculously long tongue to lick up other, smaller boulders, before launching them at tanks and helicopters. Despite sounding like something we've made up for the world's earliest (or latest) April Fools article, the game is very much real and actually looks like a whole lot of fun. You can check out this rather comical trailer for an earlier release of the game below.

In order to succeed you will have to master the timing of each swing, releasing your boulder buddies at just the right time to smash everything in sight. The game has over 120 increasingly-difficult levels for you to conquer, as well as hidden secrets for you to try and find. Boasting "single button gameplay", this looks like it could be another fun addition to the Switch's software library.

King Oddball is set to release on October 30th for $4.99 USD / £3.99 and we'll be sure to give it a spin when it arrives. Is this a game that you might add to your wishlist? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
