Sisters Royale is a colorful, tongue-in-cheek take on the classic shmup format. On the upside, you get to play through the game as five different player characters. The down side is it doesn't take very long to play through, so the replay value is in trying to beat your last score and to run through the levels on harder settings.

If you can handle the level grind and upgrade treadmill, Event Horizon – Space Defense is a fun arcade action/adventure role-playing mash-up. If you need more player engagement, the level grinding can become a bit mundane.

6.5 / 10.0 - Woven
Dec 21, 2019

Woven is a sedate, easy to play, colorful, game that's imaginative and pleasant to look at. However, it starts slowly and doesn't get much faster, and it requires a healthy chill level on the player's part.

7 / 10.0 - Cyber Protocol
Nov 6, 2019

If you like a puzzle game where patterns and timing are critical, then you will like Cyber Protocol. With 100 levels to keep you busy for many hours, it's a pretty good value for the money (especially at the sale price of $2.99 at the time this was published). If puzzle games with picky timing and perfect patterns frustrate you, however, then you may want to keep looking. You've almost reached your decision gate and I can't spare you any more time.  End of line.

7 / 10.0 - Asphalt 9: Legends
Oct 21, 2019

The graphics, the driving mechanics, the tracks, the vehicles, and the play time in Asphalt 9: Legends are all very good. The game is fun to play and challenging enough to keep the player engaged. However, the micro-transactions and some frame-rate issues do interfere with the overall experience.

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a bit of a grind at the beginning, but if you can endure the first part then the game will open up into Jedi Force battles and light saber combat which will make all the Star Wars fans happy. For the cost of the game (currently only $9.99), it's worth putting in your rotation.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rise: Race the Future
Sep 30, 2019

As the checkered flag comes down on RISE: Race the Future, it has finished strong. The graphics, the driving mechanics, the tracks, the vehicles, and the play-time are all very good. The game is fun to play and challenging enough to keep you coming back for more. Even if you normally don't get into racing games, RISE is definitely worth having in your Switch collection. Unfortunately, the lack of multiplayer is a significant omission that we can't ignore.

7 / 10.0 - The Forbidden Arts
Sep 9, 2019

The Forbidden Arts is a nice indie studio entry for the Switch and good for at least 12 hours of gameplay. I say "at least" because if you play like me you will probably get a couple of extra hours out of it (refer to the finicky jumping bits above). It doesn't have all the polish of a big studio game, but it has heart.

9 / 10.0 - PAWARUMI
Aug 12, 2019

Pawarumi is a good old-fashioned "shoot everything that moves" game which engages the player right from the start; I had an adrenaline rush going the whole time I was playing. At $14.99, it's a great addition to your Nintendo Switch catalog of games.
