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.

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.

5.5 / 10.0 - SURVIVE! MR.CUBE
Sep 5, 2018

There are some clear pros and cons to Survive! Mr. Cube. It has potential, and the good (just) outweighs the bad. I had to force myself to play at first, though I enjoyed it more as I progressed further. It's limited in some respects, and would be easier to recommend if it came with a lower price tag.

8.5 / 10.0 - Go Vacation
Aug 2, 2018

Go Vacation is a particularly fun game that's designed for almost everyone: single players will relish the exploration and collecting aspects; groups will have fun discovering minigames. The massive open-world nature and daily incentives provide even more to do, making this a game that encourages repeat plays. Go Vacation is definitely worth adding to your Switch collection.

7.5 / 10.0 - 20XX
Jul 27, 2018

20XX is an action game that harkens back to the glory days of retro platforming. Its strong Mega Man influence is countered by its own flavor of procedurally generated levels, keeping things fresh at first, though there is some repetition after awhile. With interesting bosses and a great co-op mode, platforming fans should find something to enjoy here.

Samurai Defender is a neat tower defence game, with a simple yet addictive concept involving Japanese warriors attacking your castle. There's plenty to upgrade, with hundreds of levels to conquer, giving this game the potential to keep you busy for hours. If you're a fan of the genre, I'd recommend giving this one a try.

Just Shapes & Beats is a unique combination of rhythm and arcade games that's fun and accessible. There's a lot of visual and audio stimulation, but it works well and makes for a fun party game.
