Let down only by slowdown, The Sexy Brutale is a load of fun. It's got that Scooby-Doo-like magic to it, that sense of achievement when you solve the puzzles and save the day. Atmosphere is good, music is good, as is innovation - without the slowdown, it would be perfect.

4.4 / 5.0 - The Count Lucanor
Oct 26, 2017

The Count Lucanor is definitely worth a place in your Switch eShop library. Comprising a castle of a range of different puzzle challenges in each room, it's like a scarier version of the Crystal Maze. Well-written storytelling also helps its case, and while it may not be long, it certainly is memorable.

Platforming fun for all the family, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is one of the Switch's better takes on the genre. Its storytelling feels like a Disney Pixar movie, so if your youngster has had a Switch for Christmas, it shouldn't take much to get them on board.

Party Golf has loads of modes to keep you busy, and offers loads of fun to bring you back. Gather some friends together and you'll have a bundle of fun, but it's also good fun playing against some CPUs. It's perhaps forgiven at not having some kind of story mode by the sheer depth of modes available - pick it up. I'm sure you'll have fun too.

4 / 5.0 - NBA 2K18
Oct 31, 2017

As part of a wave of sports sims to be hitting the Switch right now, it's once again a great time to be a sports fan who just plays Nintendo systems, like me. Just like FIFA, WWE and the like, NBA's absence has been sorely felt by Nintendo fans, so you ought to go out and add this stellar entry to your shelves.

3.6 / 5.0 - Time Recoil
Nov 7, 2017

Time Recoil is a quick-paced, enjoyable shooter-come-puzzler, which has plenty to keep players entertained. It's not quite a unique entity in the Switch eShop, which has a number of other games from the same genre, but it's definitely worth a play if you've got the funds for it.

Embers of Mirrim offers some solid, clever and challenging platform action. If only it had a more gripping story, or something else which drew you into the characters it might have been a bit more memorable.

It's not treading any new ground, but Antiquia Lost does have a nice story to follow through. RPG hardcore fans will perhaps want to look elsewhere for something more meaty, but at just over a tenner, it's not one which will break the bank if you want to give it a try.

Bleed is a good, solid platformer which offers a good chunk of replayability, and there's a lot of challenge on offer in the higher difficulties. It won't last you long though - its seven levels will take just over an hour.

Crimsonland offers some good twin-stick shooter fun that you'll really enjoy blasting your way through. It's great and addictive when trying to polish off the levels, but it is a little simplistic - that's ultimately what separates it from the likes of Doom.
