I found Moon Hunters to be a game I really wanted to love, the clever world building that takes place over generations and the stat and skill building that is on offer leads me to want a deep and rich experience that never quite materialised. There are some fantastic moments and clever storytelling but the loading times, bugs and such short campaign runs hold back what could have been a very good game with a few tweaks.

Aces of the Luftwaffe is a solid Shoot Em Up and plays out particularly well in multiplayer or when playing solo on the move. For a first Nintendo Switch game, Handy Games have done a fantastic job in producing a game without many technical hick-ups, as a result, if you are in the market for this type of game you can't go far wrong here.

Worms WMD pays homage to its roots and the addition of crafting, buildings and vehicles add a few interesting twists to this classic. Worms is all about multiplayer and the lack of online play with friends is a real shame though getting pals together for a local match is as fun as its ever been and the best worms in a very long time.

The End Is Nigh is a game with very clear purpose. Its a razor focused game with a strong identity that isn't for everyone but offers a thrilling challenge for those who enjoy a tough platform experience.

60% - Crawl
Dec 18, 2017

Crawl is a good example of a classic dungeon crawler with some really clever twists, the randomly generated levels combined with multiplayer madness leads to some fun with friends though, the experience is quite highly priced and didn't keep us entertained for a huge amount of time.

Enter The Gungeon is an excellent example of a what a twin stick shooter should be and of a port done right. Its soundtrack and cool visuals are underpinned by an excellent control system and depth that keep you hooked.

Overall Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King delivers on its promise in recreating a gaming classic and gives us an ode to one of the best games of all time. Could it have done a bit more to be different? Yes, though perhaps that is its strength - its not pretending to be a completely different game, rather it pays homage and adds a few small features that comes together as a fun experience.

Steamworld Heist offers up over 10 hours of main campaign and its a blast, battles can become slightly repetitive as is normal with this type of tactical game but the fact that you are aiming, each ship is randomly generated and there is a strong story supported by excellent visuals and a toe-tapping soundtrack kept me engaged from beginning to end. Along with Mario vs Rabbids this is the best strategy game on the Switch to date for me and a must purchase.

SUMMARY The Escapists 2 has a fantastic premise and builds upon the original game, playing on the go is a great way to play and there are some great moments however I feel as though it gets a bit bogged down in menus and systems. The developer has missed the opportunity to give us a bit more back story for the character we play for each prison. Nevertheless its a creative and expressive game worth picking up if you like a sandbox game.

60% - InnerSpace
Jan 16, 2018

InnerSpace aims to soar high and you have to give the development team credit for their ambition. As an experience I found the concept and exploration intriguing but in practice as a game there is a lot to be desired. The gameplay is not cohesive at times and the game can feel rather aimless. Overall, InnerSpace won't be for everyone but some will love its break from traditional game design.
