While I do wish that there was a bit more of it, what's here is phenomenal. This is a game I'll definitely be revisiting for the foreseeable future. It manages to take a grab bag of various mechanics, lifted from its influences, and turn them into something totally fresh and unique. Splashteam knocked it out of the goddamn park with this one, and it's absolutely criminal that I never got around to playing it on other consoles before this. This is an essential release for genre fans and a great introduction for newcomers. The Switch may be jam-packed with quality eShop titles right now, but Splasher is genuinely something special. It would be a shame to see it lost in the crowd.

The sound design is easily one of the most redeeming qualities for an experience already enticing to the platform veteran.

All told Splasher is a smartly designed, tight platformer that offers up hours of replay value on top of the creative ideas it delivers. It takes the Super Meat Boy template and builds upon it in a notable way, creating an experience that feels just the right amount of familiar and fresh. Though there isn't a whole lot to write home about when it comes to the presentation, the core gameplay is more than enough to keep you engaged.We give this one a strong recommendation, especially to those who are looking to dip their toes into the twitch platforming genre. Splasher is easy enough to pick up, yet difficult to master, and stands as a worthy addition to the Switch eShop.

Much like an actual modern-day factory, Splash Team's Splasher abides by an assembly-line philosophy.

An indie platformer where you play with colors. Saving co-workers and avoiding traps are great for shorter and longer sessions alike.

For a first title, Splashteam has shown that they are more than capable of bringing some original ideas to one of gaming’s oldest genres.

While Splasher is not revolutionizing the genre and clearly has a hard to ignore nod or two to the lead's past projects, Splashteam has done an incredible job in creating this platformer. The game plays great, is beautiful to look at, and has more than enough challenges to take replay value to the top. It's the best platformer I played in the last couple of years, the last one probably being Rayman Legends (which we reviewed a few years ago), and I truly hope the success of this game will give us a sequel in the future!
