If My Heart Had Wings for the Nintendo Switch knows very well what it's doing. With its emotional, enveloping story and characters, this visual novel excels at transmitting feelings and its art style and soundtrack certainly help with this. It would be even better if the game allowed for touchscreen controls but as it is, If My Heart Had Wings deserves its praise and distinction as one of the best visual novels for Nintendo's console.

Root Letter: Last Answer features an outstanding art style and a good set of additional epilogues for what is a good plot. At the same time, some of its endings seem out of place and the quality of the writing tends to fluctuate a lot. That doesn't mean that Root Letter: Last Answer for the Nintendo Switch is not an enjoyable game, as fans of visual novel-type adventures will find out, but the experience would be more immersive if there was any possible use of the touchscreen.

7 / 10 - Neo Cab
Dec 2, 2019

Neo Cab is a visual novel that touches upon relevant points of interest for the future of society and with its well written dialogues and varied characters, the result is an interesting and engaging effort. While its length is too short, Neo Cab provides strong incentives for players to return to it, despite a main plot that could benefit from more development.

The Alliance Alive is back under the form of a remastered version for the Nintendo Switch and while the best aspects about the game, namely its vast and open world and well written dialogues are all here, there is not much more added value compared to the original version, namely as its visual environment is below par next to other JRPGs on the Switch. While a good experience for big fans of JRPGs, this game often feels like a disappointing experience.

Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s has some good intentions but while it does a competent job at creating a nostalgic environment, its gameplay experience feels rather poor and uninteresting, mostly due to its dull puzzles and sub-par structure. This is a pity, as the game clearly has ideas that could have brought it further but the way they were implemented simply does not lead Pantsu Hunter to a memorable or remarkable threshold.

Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition gets part of the job done: the sniper component is well done, the game has a very good performance no matter where it is played and there's plenty of content that will keep the players happy. Things start going south with the game's wasted potential, plus its AI problems that can make the challenge inadvertently easier than it should and problems in some sections of the maps end up making this work fall below its expected level. That doesn't stand in the way of this being a welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue when it comes to sniper action games.

Doughlings: Arcade brings an experience based on Space Invaders under a contemporary visual presentation and it does a decent job at that. Where things go a bit off track is when the game prevents us from simply enjoying some quick, simple gaming sessions and when it imposes a staggering and merciless difficulty level, which ends up harming the experience and turning what could be a perfectly fun Space Invaders descendant into a game that can be dropped in favour of other titles available at the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Pillars of Eternity is a marvel of an RPG that pays tribute to the most classic names of its genre and which brings a vast wold to explore, along with a plot where the player's agency will have major consequences throughout the events. Its involving combat system and high quality writing further contribute to make Pillars of Eternity an indispensable game that everyone should get their hands on.

River City Girls is a very fun, well-crafted and deliciously funny beat'em-up in the same line as its predecessor. With its varied combat options, delightful animations and charismatic characters, River City Girls is set to appeal even to players who might not necessarily be very keen on beat'em-ups.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses features the finest game world, plot and gameplay of the series and even if certain aspects of its execution do raise some questions, its varied and rich world, high quality writing, exquisite soundtrack and the way its characters are shaped by the plot mean that nobody will be left untouched by this marvelous work, even if it might not be the ultimate Fire Emblem game that many expected.

Car Mechanic Manager fits in the broad management simulation games genre but unlike many of its counterparts in this sector, this conversion of a free game developed for mobile devices has virtually nothing going for it, as the gameplay experience is almost non-existent and as such, Car Mechanic Manager is a game that will not bring anything enjoyable to any player.

Senran Kagura Peach Ball is a fun addition to the series and one which will be welcomed by its fans, even if those unfamiliar with the name will not feel much of its appeal. A visually attractive game with a fun gameplay and plenty of content to unlock, Peach Ball could have gone further in the number of pinball tables on offer (only two) and variety of characters.

The game could stand out higher if it had more variety when it comes to its vehicles and missions, as well as if its locations did not look so remarkably similar but these elements don't stand in the way of an enjoyable experience.

Shakedown: Hawaii does many things right - its sense of humour, the 16-bit inspired graphics and the appeal of its game world are undeniably part of this group. Then there are other things which the game does not succeed in the same way, such as when it comes to keep up its pace interesting and compelling, mostly due to how repetitive its missions become and to the lack of sense of progression between the objectives. All factors considered, Shakedown: Hawaii is still a fun and enjoyable game, which could have been even better.

The Princess Guide feels like a mishmash of ideas that involves some creative concepts, characters with a good deal of personality and visually appealing, but the game mechanics are not properly explained, there's several examples of incoherence in the plot development and the combat is rather repetitive. Overall, this experience ends up becoming disappointing.

Our World Is Ended does several things right. Its presentation is certainly something to look at, the work of its voice actors is laudable and the game has some potential but unfortunately, some key elements of the game were not implemented that well: the plot and characters turn out to be a disappointment and the game's sense of progression feels very erratic. Its humour also feels very exaggerated and repetitive, which ends up hurting a game part of a genre that relies so much on story and plot.

While Team Sonic Racing could have gone further in its ambitions, the game is worthy of praise for being a fun and enjoyable kart racing game, with plenty of well-designed and original gameplay mechanics. It's also another opportunity to bring together a series of characters of the Sonic universe, this time in the context of a team racing competition which works very well.

5 / 10 - Coffee Crisis
May 20, 2019

Coffee Crisis on the Nintendo Switch is full of absurd and fun elements, with a plot that doesn't take itself too seriously and a memorable soundtrack that fits perfectly with the game's purpose. This would be perfect if the game could deliver on everything else with the same quality, and while Coffee Crisis certainly is enjoyable, its short length, difficulty problems and poorly roguelike elements mean that it falls short of breaking into the instant classic category, making this a mostly competent effort but which could have done so much more.

7 / 10 - Marble It Up!
May 5, 2019

Marble It Up! is an example of a good, fun game that is based on quick, simple experiences and enjoyable gameplay mechanics, as well as on constantly improving one's performance. Yet and while Marble It Up! will certainly appeal to players who enjoy returning to the same level to improve their rank, players who have more simple experiences will find the emphasis on repetition to be too tiresome and the game's appeal will end up producing different results in different audiences.

X-Morph: Defense is a treat for fans of action and tower defense games, as its simple but fun mechanics will keep players marveled for many hours. Its origins in the PC world mean that its controls don't feel entirely correct on a console but the game's wonderful visual displays, not to mention its absurd and hilarious humour will be more than enough to build up on its gameplay mechanics.
