The Mystery of Woolley Mountain doesn't do a very good job at this particular type of game, but it's ultimately up to the player to determine if this title is for them.

7 / 10.0 - Claybook
Mar 12, 2019

It's not groundbreaking and it's fairly short. But it has a lot of potential, and I hope it continues to be supported. The online works well, despite being a bit basic, but the editor is pretty robust if you can get past the learning curve.

Lazy Galaxy: Rebel Story just doesn't have the substance to keep players coming back. If you're searching for a shooter with a hook of quick feel-good entertainment, you may want to look elsewhere.

And that's Sky Force Anniversary. Unfortunately, it's just “less” of what came before it. It shares so much with Sky Force Reloaded that I didn't mind going back into it. In some ways, it was fine to come back to and relive, albeit as a much shorter experience. But why pay the same price when there is a game identical to it in gameplay with more content?

5 / 10.0 - FullBlast
Oct 14, 2018

The base game is fun. It's easy and approachable for newcomers. But it doesn't go all that far in any particular aspect.

7 / 10.0 - Luigi's Mansion
Oct 11, 2018

Really, it is the same GameCube game with a sprinkling of flourishes here and there for the 3DS.

8 / 10.0 - Nefarious
Oct 4, 2018

The story isn't super deep, but it's not trying to be. This is a fun take on a villain doing what old-school villains have always done, and the thought process around that. If you're into simpler platformers that don't eat up a lot of time, and want some charming characters, Nefarious might just be for you.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Spectrum Retreat
Sep 13, 2018

But, those challenges are all in the later half of the journey, so getting to them will be a chore. I think all of the concepts here, warrant a sequel, that I would gladly come back to. A few tweaks here and there, would assist in the overall experience, but all in all I recommend checking into The Penrose for a few puzzling nights.

8.5 / 10.0 - Squids Odyssey
Aug 13, 2018

Squids Odyssey has a lot of great content available to play from the get-go, and it's a really fun summer title to keep coming back to in the midst of all the other heavy hitters.

7 / 10.0 - Drawful 2
Jul 12, 2018

Drawful 2 is still just as fun as the first, and more fun with the ability to create personalized prompts in games. But if you're looking to get more bang for your buck stick to the first title, because Drawful 2 doesn't seem to live up to changing much in the way of a sequel. It provides more of the same fun, and it's hard to fault it for that because the base game is a wild time at parties.

7.5 / 10.0 - Figment
Jul 12, 2018

It's clear that a lot shown in Figment is not what the focus of the experience, it's the puzzles, which don't always stick the landing. A handful of exceptions crop up, but not nearly as many as I would have liked. Check out Figment if you're interested in taking on a puzzle adventure indie, with some cute visual touches, and can handle a little puzzle fatigue.

And the puzzles aren't bad. It does hiccup with a few control issues and puzzle-design mishaps, but I still think it's worth playing through if you're interested. Just be sure to have a small light on nearby.

While the introductory RC Car is a quick 10-minute build, the other four (Motorbike, Piano, Fishing Rod, and House) are much more involved.

7 / 10.0 - The Way Remastered
Apr 27, 2018

After roughly two hours, a second chase sequence with a large yellow animal begins, and the player has two minutes and 30 seconds to complete the boss fight, or the game will crash and delete the entire save. This happened to me, and was frustrating, and it took me about an hour to return to where I was, having known how to solve the previous puzzles. SONKA has also put out a walkthrough online, detailing bypassing the glitch.

All in all, it's really what you expect it to be. Most adults probably will pass up on this title, but if you want to share the Switch with a toddler and give them an educational toy on a rainy day, It's Spring Again delivers.

All in all, Opus: Rocket of Whispers offers a long game that has a lot of mindless fetch quests, but it has an interesting story that might reel some folks in. If you're looking for a calming, easy game to pass the time, give it a shot. Otherwise, maybe let this one go.

6.5 / 10.0 - The Bunker
Apr 9, 2018

It's short, and replayability is pushed for because of the insertion of collectibles and a branching path ending. But I didn't find these enticing enough to come back. Once in the Bunker, was enough for me.

It's a cheap, cute, tower defense game, in a fairly crowded genre. It has decent visuals that are appreciated, but outside of that, I say, throw it back in the recycling bin.

8.5 / 10.0 - Xeodrifter
Feb 17, 2018

It plays great, it's hard to beat but addicting. There's enough content to enjoy looking for, and I honestly think that it's a well-designed game for what it is. It's small, and uses a lot of the same enemies, but that's a huge nitpick on what I think is a great game.

8 / 10.0 - Sky Force Reloaded
Feb 9, 2018

It doesn't do anything revolutionary for the genre, playing it safe in all regards. It has a lot of content in an enjoyable package. The loop of short, quick play sessions is addicting, and an experience I did not expect to have as much fun with as I did.
