Transcripted is a mixture of two incredibly addictive and vastly popular casual gaming styles: the dual-stick shooter and the match three puzzle game. In Transcripted players take control of the Nano Probe, a microscopic apparatus used to combat disease. With the aid of a skill tree that improves ship equipment, health, shields and the Nano Probe’s arsenal of upgradeable weapons, players must successfully navigate through hordes of deadly pathogens to destroy the disease’s pseudo-DNA as it twines perilously on its endless path to infection. Along the way players must defeat gigantic boss colonies the pathogen has evolved with the sole purpose of stopping the Nano Probe from completing its mission. Difficulty levels of both puzzle and shooting segments can be adjusted independently to suit every play style, making Transcripted an amazingly replayable experience through 25 core campaign missions, and 5 Challenge levels for scoring competition.

Transcripted is a fun game with some nice ideas, but it'd be far more at home on a tablet or handheld without all the boring dialogue.

Transcripted is one of the few basic puzzle games that manages to shake up its model and give the player a more unique experience. It's not perfect but, all in all, Transcripted's gameplay, visuals and soundtrack do their job well in delivering a simple but fun experience on the Switch eShop.

Transcripted features an interesting concept that puts it in a unique position within the Nintendo Switch catalogue. Its merger of shoot'em up with a puzzle game is a successful one, even if it can start getting repetitive after a while and its difficulty can feel a bit too much but this doesn't diminish its assets, not to mention that those looking for some plot will also find something to follow here.

Overall Transcripted is a very fun and highly addictive game that does a great job at mixing two different gameplay mechanics into a good looking and entertaining release. This one does not include a Platinum trophy, which is a bummer, but it's something that shouldn't get in the way of your enjoyment.
