8 / 10.0 - Rising Dusk
Dec 30, 2023

Rising Dusk doesn't beat around the bush: it gets its foot in the door, shows up, fulfills its role very well and ends its journey without delay. The short campaign of this beautiful and creative platformer is a reflection of the work of an artist with an obvious knowledge of the world of games and a vast cultural background that he applied to his work with due knowledge of the facts. There's no secret here: if you enjoy platform titles, get ready to experience first-hand a notable little thing of the genre.

Jackbox Party Pack 10 keeps the series' flame burning with another collection of games perfect for that weekend getaway at your friends' house. How much you and your friends will enjoy the package depends on your tastes, of course, but I would venture to say that it is very difficult not to have at least one microgame with the perfect ingredients for a mountain of laughter and inside jokes that will be generated.

Knight vs Giant: The Broken Excalibur doesn't get to be a discardable game. It delivers good roguelite moments in an interesting reimagination of the saga of King Arthur and the Round Table Knights, but after a few hours of gameplay, I could not avoid missing the excellency of Hades and to wish I had its sequel in my hands. That's not exactly the reaction we expect when we get a new game.

7 / 10.0 - Pizza Possum
Oct 6, 2023

Pizza Possum is that little game that you start and finish in the same day, a typical arcade experience. It most likely won't leave an eternal mark on your history with video games, but it will be a lot of fun quickly if you enjoy basic stealth. Those who had contact with the Mega Drive/Sega Genesis may remember Bonanza Bros., a classic masterpiece of the genre (which could even appear on Switch Online, right), and who knows, maybe a wave of nostalgia will come? But that doesn't mean that others have nothing to enjoy here, as even aficionados of achievements and collectibles were covered. In short: it's hide and seek for everyone!

7.5 / 10.0 - Solar Ash
Oct 4, 2023

Solar Ash is a worthy adventure platformer. Its movement mechanic is the main responsible for the agile and fun gameplay that permeates exploration and combat in yet another Heart Machine hit, as the company managed to make the transition to 3D. It's natural that some issues arise, as no game is perfect, but the Switch version is yet another port that suffers with inferior graphic quality and framerate drops. Fortunately, they do not completely invalidate the experience but a part of the chaotic beauty of the Ultravoid is lost in its sacrifices.

9 / 10.0 - ANONYMOUS;CODE
Sep 8, 2023

ANONYMOUS;CODE is the most recent entry in a series that is already 15 years old and has six main titles but can be appreciated in a standalone form with no issues. The plural themes magnificently explored, the rich characters' cast and the metalinguistic mechanic that has the protagonist and the player interacting make a triad [of elements] that captivates and mantains the interest even for those [players] less used to visual novels that are so focused on reading.

8.5 / 10.0 - Red Dead Redemption
Aug 31, 2023

Red Dead Redemption has a memorable story, iconic characters and a gameplay that left a mark for a golden age of action adventures and for Rockstar, who managed to spread their wings beyond the shadow of Grand Theft Auto. Its influence lasts to these days, as I am here, 13 years later, talking about its Switch port; thus, if you have any reservation about experiencing this modern classic, I recommend at least giving it a chance. Who knows if you won't get so excited that you will also jump into Red Dead Redemption 2 (if you haven't yet)?

8.5 / 10.0 - Moving Out 2
Aug 19, 2023

Moving Out 2 didn't come to set a new standard in the chaotic simulator genre. Its mission leans more towards maintaining a proven efficient formula, with changes aimed at mitigating the main problems of its predecessor. This goal was also achieved, and the result is a sequence that is not perfect, but it is fun, has good challenges and a lot of laughs — that is, it does what a video game has to do, although many people forget about it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Oaken
Aug 8, 2023

Oaken is a sad case of the game that lacks so much in technical aspects that its practical side loses much of its appeal. You can't expect everyone to have the good will to deal with an excessive amount of content introduced at a pace that overloads the player, nor with extremely confusing interfaces, only then to enjoy the qualities that a product has to offer.

Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE is a title "haunted" by a considerable legacy even before it was shaped in the development team head. Personally, I felt the final product was far less competent than said legacy but I can partly comprehend the creative challenges Spike Chunsoft underwent and if a new game showed up, I'd still have faith in this team that loves pink blood.

We Love Katamari REROLL + Royal Reverie makes Switch owners happy again, which, unlike other platforms, was lacking in other titles in the series. Its changes don't alter the practical gameplay precisely because there wasn't any need for it, and the truly new content, even if weak in quantity, compensates for the good level of challenge.

Pulling no Punches may not be an outstanding title in its genre, and it may not be releasing on Switch at the most relevant moment for the message it wants to share, but that doesn't make it less important to share it. After all, we're a little over a month from the announcement of the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency; that is, we aren't even close to be rid of the consequences of that nightmare, especially those in the long term.

Bramble: The Mountain King is a horror adventure that knows what it's doing. Its world-building based on Nordic culture is impeccable, presenting mythological stories and characters to an audience that most likely did not know or had so much contact with them. Balancing mediocre platforming with simple puzzles, limited exploration, creative battles and an atmosphere that successfully manages to be scary and beautiful at the same time, this short little game doesn't prolong its stay, knowing how to stop while it is still on top.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is the latest in a series of quality collections of Capcom's most famous Maverick Hunter. In addition to introducing this fantastic Mega Man subseries to new audiences and generations of platforms, the existence of Patch Cards leaves a new legacy in the field of game anthologies.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pirates Outlaws
Apr 12, 2023

Don't let the lack of creativity in the main game mode fool you: Pirates Outlaws will get you addicted to its virtually infinite possible combinations of cards and character abilities. If roguelikes and deckbuilders are among your favorite genres, be prepared to keep doing run after run.

If you can manage not to get too frustrated with the gross bugs, Planet Cube: Edge is a very accurate and satisfying precision platformer. Its eight stages filled with collectibles yield good hours of high-level action, and if that's not enough, completing the campaign unlocks new difficulties.

7 / 10.0 - Trek to Yomi
Feb 15, 2023

Trek to Yomi is a solid product set in feudal Japan, faithfully portraying the Bushido lifestyle and some more general themes such as grief, the consequences of a wrong decision and the complex choice between love, duty and revenge. The title by Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog may not be such a rich experience in terms of gameplay, but embarking on this cinematic and historical journey filled with content about Japanese mythology pays off — and a lot — the few hours invested.

If you're longing for any other recent roguelike of your choice, I'd say that at the very least it's worth trying out Paper Cut Mansion and finding out how much the game's flaws weigh on your taste, as its qualities certainly set it apart.

9.5 / 10.0 - It Takes Two
Nov 25, 2022

I fully understand who gives greater importance to the graphic quality of a game, but this is a factor that has never been among my priorities when considering a purchase or writing a review. I think that's why it was so easy for me to ignore the visual problems in It Takes Two. These flaws are even more evident in more complex textures like hair strands and clothing fabrics, but I reiterate that they are largely irrelevant. Just call your player 2 and go deep into one of the most enriching journeys in video games.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope comes from the unexpected success of a spin-off that was highly discredited until it proved itself successful. Thus, while much was expected from the sequel, there was a feeling it wouldn't need to do much to repeat the feat. Without any doubt, I can say Ubisoft hit the mark once again.
