undefined.The game is on the shorter side, I finished it in about five hours, but it was the perfect amount of time to deliver the full story Songbird Symphony set out to tell. Extra tasks are kept short, simple, and to the point, eliminating long, tedious errands or lengthy trips back and forth between worlds. From beginning to end, the game is set up like a story, with fun characters to meet along the way, an intriguing mystery, entertaining dialogue, and the heartfelt determination of Birb.
While it can be frustrating to just barely overjump something or miss hitting an enemy while you’re racing through, this only encourages players to retry for a better score. The game’s difficulty is perfectly balanced for either jumping from level to level to progress through the story, or to step it up a notch and go for a perfect score on every world.
While touchscreen use is possible, this game is best enjoyed as a handheld game as it's easy to switch between controls and feel the light use of the Switch's HD rumble. The mechanics are explained and demonstrated very clearly to get players started, but it's important to think outside the box as the puzzles increase in difficulty. It's easy to feel frustrated for a while on a certain area, but once you strike on the solution, the game feels wonderfully satisfying.
There are great bosses with different fighting styles, the graphics are fun and non-distracting from the gameplay, and the music and sound effects all add to the overall action. However, throwing endless enemies and obstacles at a player all in the name of creating a difficult game does not inherently produce a rewarding challenge. Unfortunately this title sorely missed that mark.
It utilizes the touchscreen well and mixes up a genre that can get stale from game to game. Each song brought clever ways of utilizing their Tuner setup that kept things interesting as you played through the extensive list of songs. While anything beyond that was a letdown, if you're looking for a solid game with fantastic tracks, Lanota doesn't disappoint.
One Eyed Kutkh is an interesting idea. Gorgeous and imaginative in its design but severely lacking in its execution. It leaves gamers wishing there was more to this game so more time can be spent in its world. Unfortunately, unless you're looking for something simple to keep you occupied for a couple minutes, One Eyed Kutkh falls short.
Puzzle fans will find a lot to love in Vesta. The game goes beyond simple tasks to a fully fleshed-out experience with beautiful graphics and an intriguing storyline. While the pacing can be slow and certain puzzles frustrating if you don't follow the correct sequence on the first try, this is a perfect title to pick up and chill out with.
Overall a genuinely fun nature pervades through this game. The bright colors and fast-paced play combined with an upbeat soundtrack by David Wise keep it moving. The concept might be one-note, but enough variety is present in the levels for consistently fresh gameplay with an old school arcade feel perfect for handheld play on the Switch.
