The House of the Dead: Remake brings the original game up to today's standards when it comes to its graphics and controllers, and adds a very welcome and addictive game mode, all good reasons to see this as a successful work on the Nintendo Switch. Its technical performance could be better though, with slowdowns taking place in busier moments, especially in multiplayer, and long loading times that will test the players' patience.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a masterpiece of beat'em ups. More than just a rework of a classic formula, Shredder's Revenge is everything beat'em up fans could ask for, from its slick and intense combat system to its level design, graphics, music and 6-player co-op. Everything works as it should and what we have here combines the best of its inspirational work with the best ideas for a modern beat'em up. The Nintendo Switch brings it the additional benefit of bringing the game everywhere, for a truly exquisite experience.

It may not be a revolution but everything it does, it does it right, from the demanding and well crafted gameplay to the art style, along with the amazing boss fights, humorous dialogues and technical execution.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is rather unexpected in the sense that it's a prequel of a game that hasn't been released yet, but that doesn't prevent it from having a great plot and outstanding characters. It does take its time to gather pace, however, which requires some patience until the game shows all its value, but the most committed players will be duly rewarded with Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising until the next game arrives.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero brings us an RPG with a charming and gorgeous art style, coupled with a plot that's very appealing and a gameplay that's designed to be accessible for players less versed in this kind of games. At the same time, more experienced players might feel put off by the game's accessibility and rather slow pace, but The Cruel King and the Great Hero puts up a good effort that would only benefit from a more in-depth combat system and faster pacing.

Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain brings the Big Brain series to the Nintendo Switch and the result is a game that's more focused on a multiplayer experience, locally and online, by pitying players in competition with each other. The result is a very solid effort that consists of a high quality set of minigames, controls that fit perfectly with the Nintendo Switch, and a very motivating gameplay. A great, if somewhat unexpected, addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

Lacuna puts the player in the middle of a dense, enveloping plot that takes part in a futuristic world where we will be carrying out a detective work, solving puzzles, and become completely immersed in an exquisite intellectual challenge. The conversion work to the Nintendo Switch is done flawlessly and the game runs smoothly on both a television screen and on the console's own screen, which is an extra advantage as Lacuna is a perfect company for playing on the go.

River City Girls Zero presents us with the original 1994 game that shows where the characters' stories began. A fun, intuitive beat'em-up with a lot of plot, but which also shows that it doesn't follow its contemporaries when it comes to pacing and lifespan - indeed, this game feels too short and it advances too slowly. A full remake would have been a better option, but as it is River City Girls Zero is an enjoyable beat'em-up that fans of the genre will like to get their hands on.

OlliOlli World follows the development of the series and with each delivery, the 2D action platformer based on skateboarding treats us to a marvelous experience. With a demanding but very fun gameplay that encourages players to be bold and creative, an exquisite audiovisual component and a level design that fits perfectly with the gameplay, OlliOlli World is a fantastic companion, whether at home or on the go.

The Unexpected Quest throws a welcoming hand at the audience thanks to a very well done tutorial and overall organization. Where the game starts steering from higher plateaus, however, is when its constrictions come into place - this may seem quite unusual for a Real Time Strategy game, but The Unexpected Quest imposes too many limits that curtail the player's creative and strategic freedom, thus hindering the experience. Adding to that a lack of touchscreen controls, a slow pace, and a somewhat dated visual environment, and the result is a game that falls below its potential.

5 / 10 - Poker Club
Feb 1, 2022

With plenty of game modes, an active online community, crossplatform compatibility, and a top-notch visual environment, Poker Club knows how to deliver a realistic poker experience. Where Poker Club doesn't deliver, however, is where the Nintendo Switch handheld capabilities are concerned - the game requires a constant internet connection, which seriously harms playing on the go, and its visual quality on the Nintendo Switch screen decreases significantly. Players at home, though, will find a fun and immersive experience.

Chicory: A Colorful Tale has a simple principle, but its gameplay quickly gains a dynamic of its own. The result is a fantastic work that puts painting at the centre of the adventure and will lead the player into completely unexpected paths. Thanks to the Nintendo Switch touch screen and the ability to play anywhere, Chicory: A Colorful Tale finds a perfect home in this console and it fits just right with anyone looking for a fun and enveloping adventure.

Super Animal Royale brings a welcome approach to the battle royale genre of games and bears a clothing that makes it accessible for all age groups, thus toning down the more violent inclinations of its peers. This doesn't mean Super Animal Royale is a game for kids only though, far from it - its frantic, intense gameplay and relatively short bouts of play make it perfect for anyone looking for a fun-packed experience, with the additional advantage of crossplay between platforms.
