Back in 1995 on the Nintendo Switch may sound like a tempting promise for enthusiasts of retro-themed works but beware the promises of its name. The game bases itself on the 32-bit generation, which is unusual but not a bad decision per se. Unfortunately it doesn't get anything right and it fails to understand that what made games of that generation stand out was the amusing naiveté they employed to go around the technical limits of the time, whereas Back in 1995 is just a clumsy collage of elements that try to simulate a game from 25 years ago but which plays terribly and without any sense of enjoyment whatsoever.

Distorted textures and hulking polygons may not feel as chic or romantic as pixel art, but Back in 1995's paean to the 32-bit era extends beyond aesthetic cognizance. It's a vehicle for the sentiment and devotion of its author, and approach may be limited to a shared fondness of that time and place.
