7 / 10.0 - Metagal
Apr 17, 2019

Metagal is a fun platformer. It could do with more content, but what's there is an enjoyable ride with incentive to replay. At $4.99, it's a bargain that's worth checking out if you're a platforming enthusiast or Mega Man fan looking for a little action on the side.

7.5 / 10.0 - 12 is Better Than 6
Apr 5, 2019

12 is Better Than 6 provides quick, intense battles coupled with a great soundtrack and visuals. I had an enjoyable time in the Wild West – much more than expected. A few tweaks could go a long way, but as it is, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for something unique in the twin-stick genre.

I had more fun with Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight than I expected. It isn't a game I'd normally consider if I wasn't reviewing it. I feel that like-minded players will miss out because of this, while genuinely hard-core pilots will be disappointed by the simplicity of the dogfights. I was genuinely surprised by the game's level of depth outside the cockpit and how much I enjoyed it. If you like simple shooters and sims that extend beyond the tarmac, I'd consider checking this one out.

This fun game is a great addition to the LEGO collection of games. It's not my favorite game (will anything ever beat LEGO Star Wars?) but it's well made and entertaining. The mix of exploration, sandpit and story elements makes it feel fresher than recent LEGO games. Plus it's just plain cool to walk around as Emmet or Wildstyle while talking to the likes of Batman and Unikitty. It's worth checking out, especially if you're a fan of the movie.

8.5 / 10.0 - Downwell
Mar 1, 2019

Downwell is fun, addictive and visually distinct vertically scrolling shooter/platformer. It's tough enough to challenge you without being too frustrating, and will scratch that retro platforming itch in a whole new way. Check it out.

5 / 10.0 - Guess the Word
Feb 25, 2019

Guess the Word is a one-trick pony, with no bells or whistles nor any reason to keep playing after the first round. It's squarely targeted at younger kids, but the difficulty levels aren't right either. Steer clear unless you insist on using your Switch to spell random words.

7.5 / 10.0 - Apocalipsis
Feb 18, 2019

Apocalipsis is an interesting adventure that sports a uniquely melancholic aesthetic. The setting and mood won't be to everyone's tastes, but if you're looking for something different and have the patience for the point-and-click style, this one is worth checking out.

JackQuest: The Tale of the Sword is an addictive combination of Mario's platforming design with the exploration and sword-slashing of a metroidvania. It's a ton of fun that's quick and easy to pick up and play in shorts bursts – which have a habit of becoming longer play sessions. Where does the time go? Platformer fans should consider picking this one up.

Octahedron: Transfixed Edition is a fun and challenging platformer with a strong reliance on psychedelic visual and musical elements to get you through – think Mario crossed with Tron. It's challenging, with loads to do, and could be the game to scratch that completionist itch.

Rock Boshers is retro done right. It balances familiarity and freshness, with excellent visuals and soundtrack. The high difficulty may put off some players, but if you're a glutton for punishment, there's plenty to keep you going for hours.

8 / 10.0 - Double Cross
Jan 11, 2019

Double Cross is a fun ride – it's a tough platformer with interesting characters that blends the futuristic feel of Mega Man with some of the classic elements of a great Mario game. Solving the mystery behind an attack on your base gives the game its own edge that makes it fun and engaging. Check it out!

A dark game with a satirical edge, this is an addictive, fun and challenging game. The concept is unique with only a few frustrations, like a steep learning curve and sometimes fiddly controls, that stop this from being truly great. Worth checking out!

4.5 / 10.0 - Shadow of Loot Box
Dec 29, 2018

Shadow of Loot Box is meant to be a parody of everything that's annoying about gaming tropes. Unfortunately, the humor is little more than sprinkling every single undesirable gaming element into one game, missing the mark and creating something less than fun.

6 / 10.0 - I Am The Hero
Dec 28, 2018

I Am The Hero is love letter to classic brawlers, though it's not as good as those of yesteryear. It lacks a story and it's over too quickly, but it could scratch that fighter itch if you're looking to kill a few hours.

8 / 10.0 - Rival Megagun
Dec 18, 2018

Rival Megagun successfully blends the tried-and-true shmup formula with a competitive fighter. The single-player is fun though a little short, but the multiplayer mode offers plenty of options for all-out shooter battles with your friends.

8.5 / 10.0 - Forgotton Anne
Dec 4, 2018

Forgotten Anne is an anime brought to life, where you play the role of the heroine through a Studio Ghibli-esque world full of mystery and wonder. The puzzles will scratch that itch in your brain, but the visuals and soundtrack will blow your mind.

6 / 10.0 - SkyScrappers
Nov 13, 2018

SkyScrappers is a neat idea that just needs fleshing out. It's a fun game at its core, and with more characters, levels and modes, it could be something great.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a kooky ride through feudal Japan in search of carrots. It's fast, it's fun, and it's great with two players. Give it a go if you're looking for some cartoon-y action with a friend.

7.5 / 10.0 - FullBlast
Sep 21, 2018

There are many shooters out there, but this budget title is a “blast” for some quick alien-blasting fun on the go. With a few more options and levels, it could be fantastic, but it's worth having a go if your trigger fingers are itching for some old-fashioned blasting action.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is a mixed bag – some fun twists make this a great fighting game for quick bouts, particularly for novice fighters. Unfortunately, the lack of depth makes it a short-lived experience. And the less said about the girls' appearances, the better.
