7 / 10 - Type:Rider
Dec 1, 2019

Not many games are based on the history of typeface but Type:Rider provides a fun and well designed puzzle-platformer experience around fonts. Original and informative, Type:Rider could use a more user-friendly format for its text sections but the experience is fun and well worthy of the effort and investment.

This point and click adventure features gorgeous looking visuals and a plot so overly satirical and absurd that it's impossible not to grow fond of it. Its performance regarding player inputs falls below its quota, however, as the interaction with objects doesn't always work as expected on the Nintendo Switch but for every revolutionary or just mildly subversive player who enjoys point and click adventures, Irony Curtain will provide a welcome dose of proletarian-led entertainment.

5 / 10 - GODS Remastered
Jul 13, 2019

GODS Remastered is expected to deliver something as close to the original GODS as possible and it certainly succeeds at that. Where GODS Remastered could have done a better job is when it comes to its gameplay mechanics, which are still mostly stuck in the original game's days, as the experience feels heavy and cumbersome compared to more recent games, despite the marvellous work done on its visual environment.

5 / 10 - FullBlast
Apr 9, 2019

FullBlast joins the growing wave of 2D shoot'em ups that's building up the Nintendo Switch catalogue but other than its fluid gameplay, it doesn't really provide for an intense, gratifying experience in any other way. Repetitive patterns, a dull audiovisual component and an overall feeling of doing the same thing over and over again put FullBlast in the passable efforts category.

Red Game Without a Great Name and Green Game: TimeSwapper present concepts which are welcome in the gameplay mechanics found in titles of the Nintendo Switch catalogue. This does not mean they are free from flaws, as their repetitiveness and frustration quickly show, aggravated by a less-than-helpful control system which does not contribute to a more enjoyable experience and ends up creating unnecessary difficulties.

Grim Fandango Remastered is a marvelous throwback to the original classic, now improved with visual and sound upgrades, as well as with a series of extra options that smooth its arrival in the current generation. While this is not a remake of the original, it won't be difficult for more recent players to see why this is such a cherished name in the world of gaming, thanks to its delightful mix of noir comedy, grim elements and addictive plot.

7 / 10 - Dimension Drive
Sep 24, 2018

Dimension Drive does not go easy on anyone and its feature gameplay mechanic will multiply the woes of any player. If those well versed in 2D shooters will quickly grab it and hike up the difficulty level, those with less experience will beg for mercy and feel less of a bond with this game.

6 / 10 - Transcripted
May 20, 2018

Transcripted features an interesting concept that puts it in a unique position within the Nintendo Switch catalogue. Its merger of shoot'em up with a puzzle game is a successful one, even if it can start getting repetitive after a while and its difficulty can feel a bit too much but this doesn't diminish its assets, not to mention that those looking for some plot will also find something to follow here.

The Sexy Brutale is original, while not entirely unique, but it makes such an interesting combination of its elements that it's impossible not to feel its allure. It could use less trial and error to solve its puzzles and there are a bit too many moments when the game freezes but this experience is enough to put a malicious smile on many players' lips.
