Devil Inside Us: Roots of Evil is a horror game with an unusual concept, putting us in the role of a physically vulnerable individual in a situation of extreme danger and urgency. However, the creatures leave a lot to be desired when it comes to their movements, and the presence of bugs compromises the general experience, resulting in a title that, despite its potential, doesn't reach the full extent of its expectations.

5 / 10.0 - DreadOut 2
Jan 19, 2024

DreadOut 2 draws inspiration from consolidated franchises and titles, but it ends up delivering a clumsy, tedious and monotonous experience. Unfortunately, the promising premise of exploring legends from such a different culture is undervalued in a low quality horror game. Even if we consider the average works in the genre, there are more compelling options available.

9.5 / 10.0 - Outer Wilds
Dec 20, 2023

Whether due to the mystery surrounding the Nomai, the secrets that permeate the universe, the diversity of unique planets or the freedom given to the player, the Mobius Digital game is, without a shadow of a doubt, extraordinary. The absence of clear indicators of progress and the need to cultivate active curiosity may initially pose challenges for some players; however, for those willing to become deeply involved in the plot and uncover the secrets of this intriguing cosmos, Outer Wilds offers a truly unforgettable experience, proving to be an unmissable game for authentic and curious explorers.

7 / 10.0 - Howl
Nov 30, 2023

Despite the caveats, Howl is a title that presents an intriguing narrative, charming visual and compelling gameplay. Besides that, its relatively short duration makes it an almost ideal choice to play in a single sitting. Though it may not quite fit in the tactical category, as it's described, it's yet another good indie addition to the Nintendo Switch's library.

Naruto X Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections celebrates 15 years of the Storm series with intense combat and a vast number of characters. However, the lack of significant new features leaves the product much closer to a repetition than an evolution. In short, the true essence of the Leaf Ninja's journey is best explored in the numbered titles of this saga.

Little Goody Two Shoes isn't only charming for its aesthetic beauty but also positions itself as a challenging and compelling game, offering a rich experience in both narrative and gameplay. With very few caveats, there's no doubt that this game stands out as one of the most incredible representatives of its genre.

My Time at Sandrock smartly mixes simulation and RPG elements, creating a captivating and enticing world to explore and get to know in detail. Though the combat system isn't as pleasant as the others, it doesn't hinder the experience as a whole. Besides that, the crafting mechanic is very rich, prompting the player to enter a fun loop of exploration, gathering, creation and upgrade, which can definitely be worth hours of gameplay. Unfortunately, this ocean of content can't be properly explored on Switch due to severe performance issues, leaving us expecting future updates already promised by the developers to solve the issue.

The diverse modes of the multiplayer battle to enjoy and the infinity of customization options obtained through the in-game coins make Super Bomberman R 2 an excellent choice to spend hours upon hours competing with friends and strangers and unlocking the shop options. Though, despite the additions, the campaign is monotonous and tedious like the first game and Castle modes is much worse than other modes, for those who don't appreciate them, they can be ignored without being a big loss.

7 / 10.0 - Before The Night
Oct 3, 2023

Before the Night offers a curious experience that challenges our perceptions and questions our relationship with animals. It's a unique and intriguing journey that, despite a few blunders in the gameplay, is worth exploring for any players looking for a compelling and provocative narrative.

Amanda the Adventurer is a welcome indie addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue, with a compelling narrative and intriguing puzzles. It challenges the conventions of what we see more commonly in the genre, opting for a psychological, narrative horror instead of a more "physical" approach to scares. Unlocking multiple endings turns the game more attractive but the details of the plot usually being too hidden may hinder the experience. Finally, it's necessary to remember that, despite all its merits, this title may not be for everyone, especially [not indicated] for players who prefer action and concrete threats.

7.5 / 10.0 - Silent Hope
Sep 27, 2023

Exploring dungeons, creating items and facing enemies proves to be an addictive and fun cycle in Silent Hope. Despite the lack of boldness in bringing more content, especially with regard to the post-game, the game remains an attractive option for action RPG enthusiasts, with a special touch for fans of Marvelous' farm franchises.

8 / 10.0 - Mugen Souls Z
Sep 16, 2023

Mugen Souls Z represents a notable evolution from its predecessor with various novelties and upgrades that turn it into a notably distinct and superior experience compared to the first game. With a simple plot centered on humor, it may not be an ideal choice for those looking for a dense narrative. However, for players who are satisfied with a solid combat system, it offers the full plate with almost unlimited character customization and improvement possibilities.

Despite some caveats, The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is a good example of what the Asian horror has to offer. With an instigating narrative that delves into each of its six characters and explores the curse origins, the game is a solid choice for fans of the genre.

6.5 / 10.0 - Humankind
Sep 8, 2023

Humankind is, undeniably, a title rich in content and a great representative of its genre. However, unfortunately, its inadequate adaptation for consoles makes it just another example on the shelf of games that, perhaps, should have remained only on the PC.

8 / 10.0 - Mirrored Souls
Sep 1, 2023

Mirrored Souls lives up to the publisher's name, offering a brief experience but extremely pleasant. The plot explores complex and deep themes that have intrigued mankind since ancient times. In the same vein, the puzzles are compelling and will definitely please the genre's enthusiasts.

9 / 10.0 - Unpacking
Aug 24, 2023

Playing Unpacking is a unique experience that demonstrates how the simplicity of gameplay, when well employed, can translate into an absurdly involving and emotional work. Through the mechanics of unpacking and organizing, the game unveils the story of its protagonist and invites us to reflect on our own journeys, revisiting not only the objects that passed through our lives, but also the people who remain and those who are gone.

Nobunaga's Ambition: Awakening fulfills with excellence the mission of honoring the series' 40 birthday, presenting countless strategic possibilities within all its systems. For lovers of the genre, there's enough content here to enjoy for dozens, if not hundreds, of hours. As for the novices, it is necessary to be aware that many attempts may be necessary to master the mechanics; however, once understood, it will be difficult to stop playing.

7 / 10.0 - Cross Tails
Jul 21, 2023

With a really solid gameplay, it's clear Cross Tails had potential to shine even brighter. However, the lack of care to the sound aspect leaves a gap that can't be crossed for the game to reach what it could have been. Despite this issue, it's a good option for tactics RPG fans, as it has an interesting plot divided into two distinct campaigns and it offers a great variety of classes allowing the player to explore their creativity with varied builds.

Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward is a title with an interesting plot and compelling puzzles. However, unfortunately, the Switch version ends up set back by the lacking brightness, resulting in many disappointing moments.
