6 / 10.0 - Ultra Age
Sep 19, 2021

An action slasher in the vein of Devil May Cry, Ultra Age is a post-apocalyptic tale of a boy and his robot, fighting their way to the truth. With a large variety of blades and some minor performance issues, players are in for a good time (if they can ignore the voice acting).

7 / 10.0 - Monster Harvest
Sep 1, 2021

The premise of Monster Harvest sounds almost too good to be true: a farming action RPG combined with monster catching mechanics, what could be better? Unfortunately, playing this on the Nintendo Switch might not be the best for your eyes.

7 / 10.0 - Tinytopia
Aug 30, 2021

For those burnt out on realistic city-simulators, Tinytopia has something different to offer. A strange cross between a merge match game and a scaled-down SimCity that puts you in absurd levels and situations. If you can stack a trailer tall enough to survive an alien invasion, then you're in for a treat.

10 / 10.0 - The Ramp
Aug 3, 2021

The Ramp is a minimalistic, bite-sized skateboarding title from Hyperparadise. With stripped-down controls and nothing to unlock, it captures the core essence of skating. Dropping into the game is as easy and satisfying as dropping into a real half-pipe, and you’ll keep coming back for more.

9 / 10.0 - Mini Motorways
Jul 19, 2021

There's no shortage of simulation titles on the market, but Mini Motorways truly shines in both visual aesthetics and skill ramp. But does this mobile port succeed in the move to PC, or is this a wrong turn that took the entire thing off course?

There's a new strategy RPG available for Switch. The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos brings the frenetic and zany humor of John Lang's long-running audio series to modern consoles. Unfortunately, technical issues wreak havoc on the Nintendo Switch experience.

A departure from the publisher's more recent mobile RPG ports, Alphadia Genesis 2 sports 3D graphics, and a more reserved combat system. What remains is a throwback to the late '90s and a distinct feeling of emptiness that never really goes away.

The Wonder Boy renaissance continues with Asha in Monster World, a full remake of Monster World IV that brings our heroine and her platforming abilities to a new audience. This time around, it seems as though even copious amounts of style and charm can't make up for long hallways and minimal direction.
