Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted's port to the Nintendo Switch has proven to be a difficult one. The slippery controls render the game difficult to play, but I don't consider this a hit against the franchise. FNAF will continue to be a fan favorite, and I'm sure more games are planned for the future.
Jamestown+ is highly enjoyable for users who appreciate a fast-paced and competitive shoot-em-up. While the game is weighed down a bit by story, and the game doesn't allow for the Joy-Cons to remain connected when the Nintendo Switch is undocked, this title still has something to offer for those looking for an addictive game with a unique setting.
Hoggy 2 is a brightly colored puzzler for anyone looking for a way to blow-off steam. With the way each puzzle evolves, as it introduces new game mechanics, this game can also serve as a good lower-level strategy game for children to build skills. Still, its slow start may feel underwhelming for slightly older audiences.
I think this game offers quite a bit of nostalgia. And even with all of its faults, I found ways to cheese the system or use the Force in fun ways to get through the missions. However, as fun as it was, I don't know that it's an accessible title for gamers who aren't fully versed on how games in 2003 played or are expecting a current-gen SW gaming experience.
Coffee Talk is a fun game that offers entertaining conversation and chilled ambiance. For what it's worth, the game's setting and premise require very little from the player, but that also takes away the experience of playing a game. I recommend Coffee Talk to anyone interested in a relaxed time on the Switch, even if the choices you make along the way are minimal.
Drop into the photorealistic world of AntVentor! Despite the lack of dialog, this point-and-click game strikes a nice balance between humor and puzzle-solving. While some of the hints and challenges are difficult, I do believe AntVentor is a game that can be enjoyed by anyone.
911 Operator Deluxe Edition is a stress-filled management game, that requires you to strategically think through simulated emergency scenarios. This game's tension makes up for the lack of physical gameplay. If you're looking for a tense and educational experience, try out this game.
For a game that started on mobile, Rest in Pieces is a fine example of game fitted properly for the Nintendo Switch. The super simple horror-based game uses believable physics and addicting runs to create an easy game for anyone in the family to enjoy.
This game is built to get you into the action quickly with just a few cutscenes to explain the creation of the Delta Squad. I enjoyed the chance to mindlessly shoot droids and see how far I could get. With a variety of difficulties to help you set your pace, gamers of any skill level can play Star Wars: Republic Commando.
While DOOM Eternal is rated M for its gore and violence, there's a lot about the gaming experience that makes it safer to play for teen and young adult audiences than the average, multiplayer competitors of its genre. And if there's ever a day I need to just chainsaw through some demons, I know where I can turn.
Ultra Hat Dimension feels like a game created by people who loved old dungeon-based puzzlers. The game requires strategy, but it is entertainingly deceitful. It's a balance of frustration and cutesy atmosphere that I really appreciate. Somewhat strange premise aside, Ultra Hat Dimension is a fun game woven with care.
Arcade games are known for being to-the-point and energetic. Finding one that's both of those things, and fast-paced, is a treasure. There's definitely replayability in a title like Super Destronaut: Land Wars. Short as it might be overall, the game modes never get boring.
