8.5 / 10.0 - Ironcast
Nov 9, 2017

Even though Ironcast doesn’t have much of a story – it exists mainly to give you more chances to play the puzzle part and present you with different challenges – it has more than enough replay value to keep even casual players coming back again and again. The allure of slowly building up your might to go against the strongest villains meets an engrossing gameplay that’s accessible to everyone. If you factor in the Switch’s hybrid nature, Ironcast suddenly becomes the game you never knew you needed.

Tiny Barbarian DX is definitely a nod to the challenging games of the 8 and 16-bit era. Armed with colorful retro-styled graphics and head-bopping tunes, this game will challenge you and frustrate you just as much as its spiritual predecessors. This game might not have anything groundbreaking, but at least it is bite-sized enough to keep you coming back.

8 / 10.0 - Superbeat: XONiC
Dec 6, 2017

Aside from small complaints here and there, Superbeat: XONiC does a very good job of being a portable game. With just three songs per TRAX session, it becomes a game that’s perfect for short pockets of time. The barrier to entry is not that high either, making this game accessible to a lot of players. If you like rhythm games or just want to jam with great tunes in general, you owe it to yourself to add this game to your library.

7 / 10.0 - Ayo: A Rain Tale
Dec 18, 2017

If gameplay is the only way to teach us a lesson, Inkline falls short on that task. But when looking through the entire picture, it's easy to ignore the game's shortcomings and appreciate it for the goal it's trying to accomplish. It's a laudable and valiant effort, and Inkline should continue with these ventures.

6.5 / 10.0 - Lumo
Dec 21, 2017

Lumo had the makings of an instant classic. A retro tribute without the retro graphics, combined with an adorable character make for a very tempting game. It even had pop culture references to yesteryears that some people would recognize. But mechanically, Lumo had critical flaws. Isometric views should never be hindrance to gameplay, but rather a style of presentation that offers a unique experience. And that’s where the game fell short.

Mantis Burn Racing may not be flawless, but its strengths are worthy of attention on the Switch. Sleek, modern vehicles paired with highly detailed tracks work well together with the speed of each race. If you can forgive its shortcomings, Mantis Burn Racing is worth checking out.

7 / 10.0 - Portal Knights
Jan 19, 2018

Portal Knights is the kind of game that must be played with a specific goal in mind in order to truly enjoy. Perhaps patience is the key to unlocking the fun – you just have to get there first.

5 / 10.0 - The Deer God
Feb 7, 2018

The technical problems that plague the game can make even the most casual player a bit leery. Even if we give the benefit of the doubt and assume that the bugs from previous versions are fixed, the problems that do exist in the Switch version are enough to make someone think twice about spending time and money in the game. And that's unfortunate because this debilitating blemish prevents The Deer God from realizing its true potential.

Treat this game like you would a rich, decadent dessert: savor each small bite slowly and let each ingredient sing. You’ll be glad you did.

8.5 / 10.0 - Toki Tori 2+
Mar 27, 2018

Overall, Toki Tori 2+ is a strong puzzler that’s great for burst sessions instead of long marathons. Two Tribes’ creativity with just two buttons, combined with your own, makes for a game that sneakily compels you to keep solving.
