Rather than being a game for the whole family, My Universe – PET CLINIC CATS & DOGS is very much for younger kids. I can see them enjoying it for a couple of hours before the repetition cements itself. But this is a $29.99 game, and there's no way to justify that price. The quality isn't high enough for what ends up being an average game in most respects that kids will grow bored with.

6.5 / 10.0 - Turrican Flashback
Feb 23, 2021

For $29.99, you get a fun collection with Turrican Flashback, but it's one you may want to wishlist if you're not an enthusiast. It takes a more straightforward approach when it comes to Nintendo Switch compilations, one that's hard to overlook. I just wish it felt more complete.

6.5 / 10.0 - Unspottable
Jan 28, 2021

A multiplayer game with no online is a tough sell in the era of the Coronavirus. But Unspottable is enjoyable enough that I give it a mild recommendation, so long as you have people in your house to play with. This release would benefit from a solo mode and more options, but it's decent as the first title from a small indie studio.

3 / 10.0 - Freddy Spaghetti
Jan 26, 2021

When it comes to polish, Freddy Spaghetti is molto al dente. Until this game gets a patch to fix its game-breaking bugs, I can't recommend it on the Nintendo Switch, even for only $4.99.

I certainly don't mind a somewhat easy game, but I need a bit of challenge to hold my attention. After several hours, I think I've seen enough of Blacksmith of the Sand Kingdom for the time being. Perhaps it improves, but it should've put its best foot forward much earlier. The battles are so simple that the efforts at depth are lost, making crafting less necessary and rewarding.

7 / 10.0 - Down in Bermuda
Jan 14, 2021

Down in Bermuda is a fun little puzzle-adventure. That said, I beat it in just over three (leisurely) hours. The $19.99 launch price is hard to justify, especially for a game whose mobile origins shine through in both looks and feel. So wishlist this one for a future sale.

Excalibur Games has serious work ahead if they want to make Tracks – Toybox Edition a good game for the Nintendo Switch, especially if targeting whole families. Having a proper tutorial, improved UI, and touch screen support are some of the fundamentals they should revisit.

2 / 10.0 - Art Sqool
Dec 28, 2020

Art Sqool fails as both an "art school simulator" and a video game. There's nothing educational here, and its gameplay is the equivalent of scribbles I might've drawn as a toddler.

6.5 / 10.0 - Shady Part of Me
Dec 24, 2020

Shady Part of Me is a game that puzzle platformer enthusiasts will most likely enjoy. But when all's said and done, it looks like this will stay in the shadows compared to the indies it takes ideas from. It's fun at the time, but ultimately forgettable.

If you're looking for some exercise, Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise is a good option on the Nintendo Switch. With the Just Dance series stagnating, and Ring Fit Adventure expensive, this is a solid alternative. Even if you aren't a fan of boxing (I'm not), you'll be able to enjoy this sequel.
