58 / 100 - 1-2-Switch
Mar 24, 2017

1-2-Switch contains minigames that are both fun diversions and promising examples of the technology at work within the system’s Joy-Cons, but several duds, a lack of substance or progression, and an expensive asking price make it feel like something that would have been better suited as a pack-in title.

55 / 100 - Orange Adventure
Dec 18, 2016

While the idea of a throwback to classic 16-bit era platformers has merit, Orange Adventure mostly squanders it with clunky controls and frustrating, archaic game and level design.

87 / 100 - The Metronomicon
Oct 13, 2016

With an impressively novel and well-done approach to gameplay, as well as a great tracklist and campaign to back it up, The Metronomicon is one of the best rhythm games in recent memory.

King's Quest: Chapter 4 - Snow Place Like Home packs some of the best storytelling in the series so far, but a bizarre and repetitive structure for the majority of its length holds it back from greatness.

While a brief running time results in less emotional investment than its developers probably intended, The Lion’s Song: Episode 1 – Silence is still a novel diversion for adventure game fans that costs nothing to try out.
