While a sequel is in the works for BOTW there is no clear release date as yet. If you’re hankering after a Zelda fix, Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity delivers great storytelling and provides an exciting new adventure. It is an addictive fighting game and offers enough space to experiment with different characters. As for Musou fans who haven’t played BOTW, try out the demo before you decide to buy. Since your save file is carried over to the game from the demo you have nothing to lose if you do decide to buy. After playing Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity I’ve got an urge to play BOTW again. I’m sure like a lot of gamers who have played Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity they are feeling exactly the same way!
My Aunt is a Witch is a very entertaining, and thoroughly fun visual novel. A story of a young boy who finds some adventure and magic in his world to replace an unfortunate turn to his life. Visual novels are not really my go-to genre, My Aunt is a Witch is the second visual novel I have reviewed for LadiesGamers. And I must say if there where more VN’s like this one on the Nintendo Switch I’d be making a few purchases on the eShop! As for fans of this genre, I can recommend My Aunt is a Witch to add to your collection.
Santa’s Xmas Adventure is an enjoyable puzzle game though there isn’t anything new in this game, and nothing we haven’t seen before in similar games. But the game would be a great starting game for any youngsters that want to get into the genre as it’s accessible to players of all ages and abilities. And with its Santa theme it would make a great present for someone to have on their Nintendo Switch at this time of year.
Unhatched is a mobile game ported to the Switch, thankfully without the advertising or IAP that plagues most mobile games. I did enjoy some of the card battles but it does get repetitive pretty quickly and a lot of the battles are trial and error as I’ve said. The story wasn’t interesting enough to keep me engaged for long. I like strategy and puzzle games, and while I don’t dislike Unhatched there are better games at the same price to choose from in the eShop.
I’ve a confession to make, I don’t particularly like Sudoku puzzles nor Tetris, so you would think I wouldn’t like TENS!, but you would be wrong. As TENS! has a simple yet engrossing premise to its puzzles that pulls you in. And before you know it few hours have disappeared as you have spent your time counting to ten. As long as the youngest player can count to TEN!, then this game offers fun and relaxing gameplay for all ages to enjoy!
Tropico 6 is welcome edition to the strategy genre on the Nintendo Switch. It offers many hours of solid deep strategy and simulation. Being a huge fan of Civilization, I for one am happy to see Tropico 6 being released on the Switch. If you’re like me and appreciate a good strategy game, that you can get lost in for hours which offers a good challenge, this could be the game for you!
For gamers returning to the Oddworld series, you will find all the things you know and remember fondly from previous games still intact. For those new players to the series the Nintendo Switch is as good a console as any to try out Oddworld on. Plus you have the added portability that the Switch brings with it. I’ve had a enjoyable and entertaining time revisiting Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty and being reunited with my old friend Abe. It has certainly given me something to chuckle over while playing through the game again, and a good chuckle is something we all need at the moment or at any time!
Pikmin™ 3 Deluxe is just as great as it was when it was first released on the WiiU. Released at the perfect time to entice a new generation of budding gamers into the wonderful world of the tiny Pikmin. I can imagine lots of very happy families playing Pikmin together this year at Christmas, it will make a fantastic family game to play. In fact, Pikmin is a fantastic game for anyone to play and enjoy immensely.
Inside Grass: A little Adventure isn’t going to win any awards for its gameplay nor its visual presentation. However, there is a child out there somewhere who would be more than happy to spend some gaming time with Inside Grass: A little Adventure and enjoy their time with it. While I did enjoy the game it certainly wasn’t a challenge for me to play. So, if you’re looking something inexpensive to amuse your children for an hour or two maybe Inside Grass: A little Adventure could be that game.
It is obvious from playing Röki that developers Polygon Treehouse want you to enjoy the puzzles and adventuring gameplay. However, it’s done in such a way as not to distract you from the story. A story is full of Scandinavian folklore intertwined with a tale of a broken family being held together by Tove’s determination, courage and spirit. All of which transforms the experience into something lasting and memorable for the player.
