Mercenaries Wings: The False Phoenix cannot be criticised for what it's not and it's certainly not a bad game - it's artwork is pleasant enough for the eyes and all the game mechanics work. The problem is, it doesn't do anything to rise above the mere threshold of functionality and it sticks to generic and worn out formulas for its plot and dialogues, it's riddled with clichés all over and the gameplay just feels shallow and unrewarding.

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.

Mario Sports Superstars means well but ultimately fails in delivering a title that is on par with previous sports games of the Mario universe. While the rich visual environment will keep the eyes fairly satisfied, most of the sports included feel empty and fall behind the threshold of fun, thus not justifying a long term investment in the overall game.

Momonga Pinball Adventures offers something different and unique mechanics compared to other games of the kind. Its simple and effective gameplay mean that the player can get into it immediately but at the same time, it clearly does not go beyond the limits of a game designed for the mobile devices market.

5 / 10 - Temple of Yog
Mar 9, 2016

Temple of Yog has some interesting mechanics and it presents a gameplay that is simple, yet effective for a game of its kind. Unfortunately its levels fall into repetition and the lack of depth of its exploration means that it will quickly lose appeal to anyone other than the most determined players looking for a retro-style game that involves fighting within dungeons.

Suffering from technical gaps, imprecise controls and a predictable and clichéd plot, Rodea still manages to display an interesting concept and gives the player a degree of freedom that is unusual in similar titles. Pity that its qualities don't weigh enough to redeem its flaws.

5 / 10 - Roving Rogue
Jul 28, 2015

Roving Rogue departs from a unique and refreshing concept – what in the world happens when videogame heroes end their quests? It doesn't go much further than this, though, and quickly becomes a repetitive and unappealing generic platformer, which is a pity as there was a great potential to explore with such an original premise.

The greater focus on the development of vehicles and characters is a very welcome improvement, as it makes the exploration and overall gameplay more enjoyable, and helps consolidate this as the ultimate version of Metal Max Xeno. On the other hand, it's less clear why several plot elements were sacrificed, and the game's performance could use some work, but that doesn't stand in the way of Reborn's overall qualities.

Rune Factory 5 marks the first new chapter of the simulation RPG series after a long hiatus and this new arrival on the Nintendo Switch brings very appealing characters, a good combat system and some interesting gameplay mechanics. Unfortunately its biggest weaknesses are difficult to overlook, namely when it comes to its performance and poor graphics, as well as to repetitive spaces to explore. While it is possible to get used to these shortcomings, they remain impossible to understand and in several cases make the experience less enjoyable than it should be.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac brings back the 1999 original and successfully adapts its visual world as well as control mechanics to our day, thus making a great effort at modernizing Pac-Man's platformer effort. While these are very welcome steps the game's foundations remain steeped in their time and as such, the levels are rather similar and with no links between them, while the camera is somewhat limited, in elements that are reminiscent of the original game's era. All in all, Re-Pac is a fun if by no means profound experience that will please fans of one of gaming's most iconic characters and of 1990s platformers.

Lamplight City is a point and click adventure that tries a novel approach with regards to its exploration, as the player can take the main events in any order and is allowed to fail specific objectives as the game's very flexible plot will adapt to such choices. In that regard, as well as its attractive art style, Lamplight City is an interesting game. Its puzzles suffer from a level of difficulty that ends up making them too simplistic though, and as such the challenge can get too repetitive but it nonetheless remains a game very much worth exploring.

6 / 10 - Monark
Aug 12, 2022

Monark presents us with an experience that draws inspiration from landmark RPG series while also hinting at a survival horror experience. It does a good job when it comes to its attractive art style, a flexible and smooth character development system, a challenging combat, and its plot with themes related to the human ego. Unfortunately the game's execution stands on the way to delivering a fine experience, and the frequent slowdowns that happen even more often during combat, as well as a simplistic level structure make this a game that's unable to stand up to its peers, even if it should not be disregarded by RPG fans.

Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX is a competent re-edition of the two original games that gives some of its elements a more modern flair while keeping the series' main characteristics intact. While it's inevitable to find that some of the elements feel outdated, this is still a fun and creative experience, and one that will make long-time fans of these cult classics very glad to have them on a Nintendo Switch.

6 / 10 - Islanders
Oct 22, 2021

ISLANDERS: Console Edition is an exercise in relaxation. Unlike most of its peers, the experience here has no set challenge or competitiveness, it's rather based on laying down buildings in certain patterns and getting points for it on procedurally generated islands. While this is certainly very appealing for players looking for a game that offers nothing but a relaxing time, those hoping for something more challenging will have a hard time finding that in ISLANDERS.

6 / 10 - art of rally
Oct 8, 2021

With its emphasis on the history of rally, a more technical and demanding driving, and often a more relaxing experience that makes use of a unique presentation, art of rally is set to find a place in the heart of driving fans. Not all is perfect, though, and its visual performance needs improvement, especially with regards to its screen resolution and textures. In any case, fans of motor sports and rally in particular will find this an appealing and delightful experience.

This is a game filled with humor and which mixes characteristics of different genres which leads to a resulting fun experience that nevertheless, doesn't tick all the boxes to convince everyone. While the colourful visual environment, original ideas and overall humor make it a friendly game, its very short life and rather high price make it an experience that will not please everyone.

TT Isle of Man: Ride On The Edge 2 improves on some aspects of its predecessor and makes the experience more accessible to new players. Unfortunately it doesn't keep a consistent record on its improvements and due to a rather poor visual performance (in contrast with its slick audio component) lack of variety on racing tracks and rewards that don't provide much in terms of motivation, this sequel doesn't represent a significant improvement over the original.

Half Past Fate is certain to appeal to fans of romantic comedies who enjoy funny stories. While the game is rather short and sometimes it doesn't provide enough leads, the game's original concept and visual presentation help it create its own space. It's less clear if it will be enough to convince the wider audience who might not be easily swayed by its assets and simple gameplay.

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.

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.
