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.

6 / 10 - Xenoraid
Dec 13, 2017

Xenoraid is a shoot'em up that does not fully abide by the classical rules of its counterparts. If the shooting action works fine, the game's structure feels like it's too constricting on the player with its insistence on purchasing every element for the ships, which creates unnecessary burdens on the players.

7 / 10 - Spellspire
Nov 24, 2017

Spellspire may not be the most common game out there, as there aren't many games based on typing, but this production gets it right. Thanks to its addictive progression system, players will be constantly motivated to advance and to come up with more elaborate words to vanquish the enemy monsters.

Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is not the most ambitious game around. That said, in its naked simplicity and disregard for the technical capacities of the Nintendo Switch, the game's puzzles are well designed and can get the player somewhat addicted into fulfilling its challenges. Audiovisual presentation and half of its control schemes aside, this can be a fun experience for a while.

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle could have reached something with its interesting idea of playing a story with different characters and their own perspectives but the combats quickly become repetitive and underperforming. While the Arcade and Score Attack modes are challenging, the audiovisual component seriously needs a brush up and the game just doesn't perform the way it should.

5 / 10 - Ninja Shodown
Oct 21, 2017

Ninja Shodown was made for quick and intense experiences. Slaughtering successive waves of enemies is fun but Ninja Shodown needs to improve on its combo system (or near lack thereof) and on movement detection to make it less frustrating, while its multiplayer mode deserves more appraise.

7 / 10 - NeuroVoider
Oct 15, 2017

If NeuroVoider wanted to push the roguelike genre into RPG territory it certainly leaves a good impression at that. While the difficulty level often cranks up in a way that goes too far for many, this frantic game has plenty to keep its players clinging on to it like to their dear lives, which are not taken very seriously in Neurovoider's world.

Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is a funny and interesting proposal that relies on an old school gameplay based on memorizing patterns and on trial and error...and this is where its qualities start receding, as Lichtspeer exaggerates on the endless number of deaths and repetition to the point of putting players off.

6 / 10 - Rocket Fist
Sep 10, 2017

Rocket Fist may be an accessible game but by no means does that make it a walk in the park. Destroying enemy robots using a rocket-propelled sphere whose physics recall that of a billiard ball, Rocket Fist quickly reaches frantic levels of activity, whether on solo or multiplayer. It gets everything right and would get it even more if it lasted longer and had online multiplayer.

Ultra Hyperball puts the player hitting a ball as high as possible and winning medals for that...and it works, it's fun and addictive both on solo and on multiplayer. While it's not the most content-rich game out there, Ultra Hyperball succeeds at what it proposes when it comes to an intense, addictive experience.
