While adjusting to the controls takes longer than it should, it's mostly worth it. Edna & Harvey: The Breakout – Anniversary Edition shines with more to like than loathe. Particularly the overabundance of dialogue, which is accomplished and comical. I'm glad I stuck with this game. As a genre enthusiast, I found it to be entertaining.
This port is certainly nothing to write home about, but the core game is a classic, priced at just $14.99. Nostalgia, and the ability to play in handheld mode, are enough to recommend STAR WARS Episode I Racer on the Nintendo Switch eShop to fans.
Bridge Strike delivers technically competent arcade action that fans of River Raid will appreciate. Repetition, lower difficulty, and no leaderboards in the endless mode combine to make it not as enjoyable as it could've been. But it still is a fun little game, one that has me hoping for a sci-fi sequel.
While I'll eventually grow bored with this title, it hasn't happened yet, even with 50-plus hours combined between my wife and I playing. I still have perks to unlock and properties to fix and sell. House Flipper is much better than expected and will keep you busy for a long while, even longer once the game is updated.
Evan's Remains is a "mystery-thriller" that, while pretty big on mystery, is shorter on thrills. If the story (and the way it's set-up) connects with you, you'll have much more enjoyment than I did. However, I don't think this is a tale with a broad audience in mind. Joined by puzzles that look and play quite similarly, the impact lessens. But the great audio/visual package elevates this one to an okay experience for me.
While hardly the most exciting package, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is big on quantity. Unfortunately, the quality can't always match, with multiplayer restrictions and online lag being among the most sizable concerns. Solo Players probably won't find this one long-lasting, but families will fare better. Even if this won't be your first choice for gatherings, a decent time should still ensue.
Despite not reaching its full potential, I still found some entertainment in Arcade Spirits. By ignoring the romantic aspects, I was able to play it as someone with an appreciation of the heyday of arcades. The charming setting made for a promising launching point, the audio is excellent, and the story (with smart pop-culture nods and humor) has page-turning qualities to some extent.
It's not just the history and nostalgia, but the high quality, sense of discovery, and genuine allure that's undeniable with this pioneer. It's proven to be a timeless journey. But this Switch port of realMyst: Masterpiece Edition needs an update, to add some missing features and fix the significant audio glitches, to be genuinely outstanding.
While it claims to be "The golf game for people who hate golf!", I think it sells itself short. I don't hate golf, but I still really like this funny game. WHAT THE GOLF? has a "one more round" thing going for it, coupled with a favorable amount of content, especially for completionists.
Whether you're pedaling down tight paths with little margin for error, catching air off natural stone ramps, or getting a quicker than expected reprieve by cruising over a railed bridge, Lonely Mountains: Downhill delivers a challenging, yet remarkably calming, experience. Don't let a few miscues prevent you from checking this one out; it's a game worth mastering.
