5 / 10 - Skellboy
May 13, 2020

Skellboy features as many interesting elements as it features detracting obstacles. If the game's body parts' swapping mechanic is original and welcome and its art style is very good to look at, its uninspired combat system and performance issues end up setting the threshold at a lower level. So while Skellboy has enough features to please fans of adventure games, its flaws will limit the game's overall appeal.

Shovel Knight: King of Cards continues the series' route in bringing more and more exquisite expansions to the original game. A crowning achievement of the Shovel Knight series, this expansion adds some very original new levels, a welcome new character with new mechanics and the series' trademark art style and sound environment. King of Cards is the expansion that Shovel Knight could want the most and it's recommended without any reservation to all Nintendo Switch owners.

Shovel Knight Showdown for the Nintendo Switch continues the series' steps in this emulated 8-bit world of tough, intense gameplay, this time with the added value of a story/campaign mode. With its variety of characters and mechanics that can work for fans of brawlers and fans of party games, Shovel Knight Showdown has a perfect recipe for local multiplayer, and sadly an absence of online multiplayer.

Ultra Off-Road 2019: Alaska presents itself as a racing game that puts the player in courses with obstacles and meteorological conditions, the problem is none of this works as expected. Repetitive game mechanics, with very little to attract the players and with a poor and flawed audiovisual performance, Ultra Off-Road 2019: Alaska gives off the impression that this game should simply not be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop catalogue.

7 / 10 - StarBlox Inc.
Jan 12, 2020

StarBlox Inc. for the Nintendo Switch is what happens when a brawler and a puzzler intersect. Even if it's not the most gorgeous game ever made, this effort can provide some unmistakably fun hours, especially on multiplayer, as the puzzle-based combats advance and the variety of game modes allow for different variations of the experience.

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a blessing for beat'em-up fans who want to experience a game that's a fitting tribute to the golden age of side scrolling beat'em-ups. Thanks to its wide cast of characters, it's possible to play through over and over and to experiment with new moves and techniques, while the audio ambiance is nothing short of fantastic. Both a sequel and a remake of a 16-bit game, Return of the Warriors is a beat'em-up gem on the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

Seal the Deal is a DLC for A Hat in Time that feels too short for it to be a major contribution to the game. Seal the Deal also allows for a higher difficulty setting which can become too frustrating for many players. Nevertheless, given the nature of this DLC and the way that it is presented more like a gift to owners of A Hat in Time for Nintendo Switch, then Seal the Deal can act as an enjoyable, if limited, contribution.

Torchlight 2, an action RPG and dungeon crawler from a previous generation, joins the Nintendo Switch catalogue in an example of how a conversion work should be handled: a register of excellence, where everything has been marvelously handled. The game may not be entirely groundbreaking but that becomes less relevant in the face its content, exploration, customization possibilities and how well it fits in the Switch format.

7 / 10 - A Hat in Time
Oct 27, 2019

A Hat in Time may not revolutionize 3D platforming but that doesn't stand in its way of this being a fun game which fans of the style will undoubtedly enjoy. Despite technical issues which can harm the experience to a certain extent, this is an overall well designed work and which is well worth the time and effort that players put into it.
