Smart Moves was delisted on Nintendo Switch in Japan on August 4th, 2022 according to a tweet from Japanese Twitter user naetoru60. Other tweets in February of 2022 last confirmed the game’s availability in Western regions when it was featured in an eShop sale in North America and Europe. However, it is likely that the game was delisted in these territories closer to the August 4th delisting in Japan.

It seems likely that an expired publishing deal is behind the game’s delisting as the Switch versions were credited specifically to developer/publisher TERNOX and are the only ones to have been delisted.

About the Game

“Smart Moves” is a puzzle with a strong roguelike feel. Different worlds with levels of increasing difficulty, sneaky monsters, unexpected obstacles and great treasures await you. Smart moves are the key to survival!

“Smart moves” is a combination of puzzle and turn-based roguelike mechanics. Destroy monsters, open chests!

The hero can attack monsters when both are standing on neighboring squares. Avoid being the first at a distance of impact! The hero can’t skip turns, but can use level objects – or other monsters – to “skip” the turn.

Every game level is a puzzle with its own logical solution. You have to discover and learn how objects interact with each other in the game world. You get a new playing experience where game mechanics are of maximum importance. Original art style included.
