Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling is something unusual, in the sense that it had a goal that it did not fulfill, but ends up doing a success on everything else. So while Big Fables is not a fitting tribute to Paper Mario, it still does almost everything right, especially when it comes to its plot, its combat system and the absolutely marvelous visual world. All in all, something that won't look bad in anyone's Nintendo Switch.

7 / 10 - Indivisible
Jun 7, 2020

Indivisible is what happens when a Metroidvania type of game is given RPG elements and it's a successful case at that. Thanks to its marvelous looking and sounding world, exploration mechanics and combat that help make up for the plot's poor pacing and fun humor, Indivisible is a worthy game to spend many hours with.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee on the Nintendo Switch brings back this chapter in the Oddworld series and while the gameplay mechanics are solid and the Oddworld universe remains attractive, it's clear that there was not enough work in this conversion to make it appealing enough beyond fans of the original game, especially when it comes to its visual environment and to its frustrating controls.

8 / 10 - Telling Lies
May 19, 2020

Telling Lies on the Nintendo Switch brings a new life to the world of story-based games that make use of an FMV presentation. With its compelling plot and simple but capturing gameplay, a very good performance by its actors and a sharp use of the Nintendo Switch touch screen, Telling Lies will be more than enjoyed by players who will gladly keep a close focus on long video scenes to follow the story and make necessary choices based on what they just watched and heard.

7 / 10 - Moving Out
May 1, 2020

Moving Out does not seem to feature the most ambitious concept but one should never underestimate how fun a game can be, even if it's designed around the idea moving out. With frantic action and an insane pressure to put furniture into a truck, Moving Out delivers a frantic experience that will keep players on their toes. If this experience might prove too frantic for some and its controls might not work as well as expected, it's no less true that Moving Out earned its place in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

In Other Waters puts the player in an unusual position but even though not everyone will become smitten by this Nintendo Switch text-based adventure, the game is a marvel to look at and features an exquisite ambient soundtrack that will make everyone feel like they're at the bottom of the sea. A work that fits like a charm on a handheld experience, In Other Waters deserves its place in the Nintendo Switch library.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is a beautiful-looking visual novel for the Nintendo Switch that features a finely written plot and dialogues, as it should with any self-respecting visual novel. While the game's length feels short, those who have a penchant for an experience that's not based on action gameplay but rather on plot choices will find an immersive world and many incentives to return to the adventure in order to discover more characters and more plot developments.

The gameplay is fun and the combat sequences can put a smile on a player's face, not to mention the truckloads of content. At the same time, its performance is not the best and the game loses fluidity in some moments. It also suffers from a shoddy plot development, which makes it less suitable to be a good candidate for representing the animated series, and doesn't match its Warriors peers.

7 / 10 - Red Bow
Mar 31, 2020

Red Bow bears the visual hallmarks of a 16-bit era RPG but once that impression gives places to a more involving experience, something else becomes clear: Red Bow is a horror game, and does a good job at demonstrating that a horror game does not need a realistic looking world. While a short experience, Red Bow has enough reasons to mire players in with its simple gameplay, plot and replay value. Perhaps it can also raise the banner for simple-looking horror games.

2 / 10 - Dezatopia
Mar 24, 2020

Dezatopia on the Nintendo Switch looks simple, really very simple. That may not be a sin per se, as it's the gameplay and performance that really harm this work. While there is a lot of frantic action going around, the game performs too poorly for anyone to enjoy it and its control system is peculiar enough to make it difficult to get used to. All in all, Dezatopia simply doesn't rise up to the minimum expected standards of a sidescrolling shoot'em up.

Shadows 2: Perfidia has ambitions when it comes to immersing the player in a scary environment but they only turn out to fulfill half of the game's goals: the sound is definitely on the right track, but its visual environment does more harm than good. The overall gameplay mechanics are nothing to write home about either, but its use of a sanity meter hits the right spot. Anyone looking for a groundbreaking work won't be impressed but players interested in a good soundscape and tempted by the use of a sanity mechanic will enjoy some time around Shadows 2: Perfidia.

7 / 10 - inbento
Mar 20, 2020

Inbento is a puzzler that makes its way to the Nintendo Switch after its premiere in the mobile market and while this is certainly no blockbuster AAA work, Inbento is certainly a gem of its own. Simple but endearing, with its kittens, charming puzzles and lovely looks, Inbento may not aim for the title of game of the year but it definitely gets something right in its formula and aims straight at the players' softest side.

Langrisser I & II brings the series' first two chapters to the Nintendo Switch in a remake-compilation that features good and bad elements. If the option to play with the original art style, the soundtrack, the plot and many gameplay aspects make it seem like this remake is a gem, the modern art style (which is closer to that of a game for mobile devices) and its technical issues end up imposing a substantial burden on this delivery, which means that those looking into it should seriously reconsider their purchase.

8 / 10 - MouseCraft
Mar 6, 2020

Mousecraft on the Nintendo Switch doesn't reinvent the puzzle game genre, but it's fun and intuitive enough to be a very welcome addition to the list of options populating Nintendo's console. With enough inspiration from other major puzzlers, most players will find themselves enjoying delightful short segments around this piece of gaming, while fans of puzzle games will find it a marvelous experience, regardless of the time they spend with it.

Two Point Hospital was not originally made for the Nintendo Switch but this adaptation works so well that it's easy to forget about that. With its irresistible mix of addictive, engaging gameplay, surprising and delightful humor, slick and sharp gameplay and an audiovisual environment that looks and sounds just right, Two Point Hospital is an essential game not only for fans of management simulations but to everyone who owns a Nintendo Switch.

Lethis - Path of Progress on the Nintendo Switch is an interesting effort when it comes to a city building simulation, adding to it a steampunk aesthetic which is unusual in this style of games. However, the game's problems with performance, technical issues and overall behaviour turns out to be rather lacklustre, despite having somethings in its favour.

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ on the Nintendo Switch is a visual novel that gets everything right. While there's not a lot of new gameplay paths to explore, the game's plot, art style, the choices involved, the soundtrack and the overall performance make this a work that will please everyone, and even though visual novels aren't everyone's cup of tea, Code: Realize most definitely deserves an opportunity.

Vitamin Connection is a title that gives away some of its plot elements. This fun multiplayer-focused experience benefits from a good, bright, colourful visual presentation and a very involving two-player gameplay component that takes full advantage of the Nintendo Switch capabilities. It works less well on solo and the game's soundtrack and regular backtracking end up becoming a bit too burdensome but for two players looking for some clean, wholesome (and healthy) fun, Vitamin Connection is definitely worth considering.

Just Ignore Them has a certain charm, that's undeniable - with its extremely simple looks but able to create a tense environment at key moments, this short game has its value when it comes to its aesthetics. It doesn't stand out from other horror games when it comes to a lack of practical instructions able to give it an intuitive sense of exploration, though, and its very short lifespan means that those who will find it fun will quickly run out of enjoyment. Still, all in all, Just Ignore Them could have done worse for a low-budget work.

While the loading times are often excessive and can feel like a burden, the game successfully creates a comic-like environment, which along with its soundtrack and attention to the way the missions are planned make this a very welcome entry in the Nintendo Switch catalogue and one which will fit well with anyone looking for a fun adventure.
