36 Fragments of Midnight - Nintendo Switch Launch Trailer
There's a lot of potential with 36 Fragments of Midnight, but it's all wasted. The procedural generation of obstacles are cool the first couple of times you play the game, but the fact that it feels empty everywhere with no replay value makes this feel like a glorified demo of something that could be greater.
36 Fragments of Midnight does a lot of things right - a cute protagonist, nice platforming, and an easy to understand objective make it seem like you're onto a winner. Unfortunately, though, even with its low asking price it is hard to fully recommend a game that can easily be completed in under 15 minutes.
36 Fragments of Midnight doesn't play like a full game and other than good looking graphics and art style, it's very difficult to find any elements to redeem it. Due to its empty gameplay, almost non-existent lifespan and actually non-existent soundtrack, it becomes impossible to deem this to be anything else than a tech demo that should never be sold as a full game.

If you're looking for a simple and short platformer on Nintendo Switch, this one certainly fits the bill. It's a small budget indie release with good replay value and it will certainly be a fun diversion for your kids, nieces/nephews or your friends' kids. Since it's $2.99, I definitely recommend this one.
