Sentinels Of Freedom helps scratch that itch for a new superhero game, especially one that can run on the Nintendo Switch system. If you were hoping that this one would be the perfect "on-the-go superhero" tactics game then you might need to look elsewhere or invest in a set of magnifying eyeglasses. While the artwork is a bit cartoony the story pays homage to early comics and classic tabletop superhero games. Since this is only Chapter One in a series we'd consider this debut release a strong stepping stone to greater things in follow-up chapters!
A month ago you couldn't tell me that a "Bouncer RPG" would be worth playing or fun. Not Tonight: Take Back Control Edition changes that mindset. The game has some off-beat humour in its dialogue but seems to pair well with the fun, and relatively challenging, "ID check" game. If you're looking for an off-beat RPG, and you don't mind the nostalgic pixelated graphics, then look no further then Not Tonight: Take Back Control Edition!
After seeing three episodes of Song Of Horror we still stand by our original assessment that this game has all the components of a strong horror adventure game rivalling those that many of us grew up with. Its puzzles won't wear you down with frustration, some of the real-time mini-game mechanics might. Nevertheless, the horror environments are sure to deliver a scare and an interesting mystery story.
Doraemon: Story Of Seasons meshes manga pop culture into a well-established farming simulation environment. Many gamers might have a challenge getting through the lengthy tutorial or might be lulled by the slow and sometimes repetitive pace. Manga fans will enjoy and appreciate the "cut scenes" and artwork used to convey the story and dialogue. The game does offer a lot of things to do in short sessions which should be a boon to "gamers on the go". Doraemon: Story Of Seasons might just be the perfect companion for daily train or bus travellers!
The Tiny Bang Story is a puzzle game that is short in duration, light on a story but has some delightful puzzles. The biggest complaint is the excessive item hunting in some cases, especially in undocked mode. And with a finicky touch control system, it might not be the best puzzle game for "on the go" fun.
Niffelheim is a strong showing by an indie game company. It's survival mechanics might feel a bit too familiar without adding much new. Initially, it'll take quite a while to feel productive as the resource grind is a bit real. 2D might be appealing to some or might be a turn-off for veteran players coming from a lot of the 1st and 3rd person survival games out there.
