Grindstone, the stellar Apple Arcade puzzler from Sword and Sworcery studio Capybara Games, is available on the Nintendo Switch right now. It’s a timed exclusive on the new platform, which means it’ll likely hit additional consoles after a predetermined amount of time, generally between a few months to a year.
Hey Nintendo fans, from the whole team at CAPY: we’re so excited that Grindstone is available to play on Nintendo Switch RIGHT NOW! With a 25% launch discount! 🙌🎉— CAPY (@CAPYGAMES) December 15, 2020

In Grindstone, players line up enemies of the same color on a battle grid and then cut them down in long combinations to earn currency called grindstones. There are more than 200 levels, daily challenges and leaderboards, a killer soundtrack, and a cast of adorable, gross characters done up in a style reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons.
The Switch version includes every content update that’s hit the game over the past year, plus control and UI improvements for wide-screen, touch and gamepad play. Grindstone costs $20 on the Switch, but it’s discounted at launch to $15. The game is also still available on iOS devices via an Apple Arcade subscription for $5 a month.
