Save Me Mr Tako is a lovingly crafted Gameboy nostalgia trip that plays great and is a fun adventure to take part in. While newer players may find the archaic design detrimental, fans of original Gameboy titles will find plenty to love here.
Overall, I really enjoyed Tooth and Tail and the anthropomorphic animals with their retro-like aesthetic were whimsical and charming to look at. There is a lot of strategy and fun to be had with the controls never feeling too complicated, even while using a controller.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a solid turn-based RPG with great gameplay mechanics and intriguing characters. The art style in the actual game and cutscenes are excellent, and the rewarding dungeon exploration is always fun. While the technical issues and boring story detract from the experience, Nightwars is still an easy RPG experience to recommend.
Leap of Fate was a pleasant surprise in the crowded rogue-like genre and provides a great value for all the variations in play styles. While the game suffers from a sense of repetition after repeated play throughs with enemies and challenges, gamers looking for a solid action oriented affair will have plenty to keep coming back for.
The Sexy Brutale is a wonderful murder-mystery experience that features a great story and cast of characters. Unfortunately, the dreadful frame rates, long load times, and poor optimization on the Switch make this hard to recommend unless you plan on playing it on another platform.
Serial Cleaner succeeds in bringing a strong presentation and 70's style to the stealth/action genre. The gameplay mechanics are surprisingly deep even with hit-or-miss AI presentation. And, although simple, the art style is great. I never knew obstructing justice could be so much fun.
The Mummy Demastered hits most of the right notes in bringing back nostalgia-driven 16-bit gameplay and aesthetics. While not without its flaws, anyone looking for something similar to Metroid or Axiom Verge would do well to give this a shot.
Oure embraces the freeform nature of the adventure genre with wondrous exploration through the clouds as a dragon. While taking down the colossi can become frustrating due to the controls, Oure still has the wings to stand up to Journey and ABZU admirably.
Sprint Vector is the newest VR sport title to be released and manages be fun to play while also providing a great workout for those who care. Some design flaws—including occasionally clipping into the environments and the MOVE controllers not performing intended motions—hinder the experience. Nevertheless, the core mechanics of Sprint Vector are done surprisingly well and is absolutely an experience you should try if you have access to VR.
If you think you are up for the learning curve, I definitely recommend giving The Escapists 2 a try. It has definitely made me feel like a genius when I have formulated the perfect escape strategy, but also foolish when I squander the perfect getaway and miss the easier route. All of that is part of the fun and makes for a rewarding experience.
Tiny Barbarian DX is a solid retro action-platformer with a gorgeous pixel based art style and great music. While the simple control scheme and repetitive nature of the title won't blow your mind, there is enough enjoyment and fun to be had while playing in spurts.
Overall, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a charming and visually pleasing experience that will remind you immediately of 3D Legend of Zelda titles, mainly The Wind Waker, in how the towns, island, and citizens are portrayed. The questing and story progression is okay, but it may become boring and tedious for some looking for more of an action oriented affair. The side activities alone, as well as with the crafting and farm management are what many will have to enjoy to get the most out of Yonder. Otherwise, if you are looking for something deeper, this may be a rather boring expedition.
