A different kind of point-and-click adventure, Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders has both highs and lows on the Nintendo Switch. But it's the quantity and quality of speech that pushes it over the edge for me, despite the inexplicable lack of handheld play.
The foundation is here, but, like The Simpson's orphanage, it needs more walls – "three is not enough." With subpar controls, music missing the mark, and a disappointing map, Two Parsecs From Earth's great visual style remains, but it's not enough to keep me playing.
No Straight Roads often has a frustrating difficulty that stems more from developer choices and less from player skill, making for flawed fun. This rhythm brawler is best played as an in-sync duo or trio. But a slicker, more stylish toe-tapping passion product, you're not likely to find. I hope to see more of Bunk Bed Junction.
After sinking several hours, I can say that Mini Motor Racing X is pretty fun. From seemingly small options to many extras, it offers a lot. While I wonder if it'll prove a memorable racer when compared to many, I suspect it's a game I'll keep downloaded to revisit for short spells now and again.
Given my fondness for hidden object adventures, I found a smidge of entertainment with The Last Days' story elements. It's a bit of a bush-league release overall, though, and the port has some evident issues. So, unless it gets a patch, I struggle to recommend to all but big genre enthusiasts.
I'm a bit more hesitant to recommend at full price, if only because the superior 3DS version is still available to buy. But the Quell series is enjoyable, and everyone should play (and replay) at least one of these relaxing puzzlers. You may find yourself hooked.
If you have an hour or two to spare, Macbat 64: Journey of a Nice Chap is pretty good for the inexpensive price. The blurry visuals and the subpar camera are part of the nostalgic charm. The fun characters and level designs have me hoping for a more substantial sequel. So, pick this one up to help make it happen.
