There's enough thumb-centric entertainment crammed into Tesla vs Lovecraft to keep even the most devoted twin-stick aficionado occupied until the Shoggoths come home.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is a B-Movie style twin-stick shooter that hits all the right notes. Although a bit on the lengthy side, this title is worth every minute.

Tesla vs Lovecraft brings some unorthodox elements to the Nintendo Switch and they work: the game's action-packed screens pass the fluidity test and the gameplay is simple and fun, also thanks to its precise control system. The game also features a four-player cooperative mode and an impressively detailed visual environment, which altogether contribute this to make a significant entry in the growing list of Nintendo Switch games.

Tesla Vs Lovecraft serves its function well enough as a simple action shooter. There isn't much to the gameplay, but sometimes you can find a good time paddling through even shallow waters.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is actually a pretty decent game. I'm personally displeased with using both names anywhere, but merging horror with technology is quite a good idea. If Lovecraft has to be an excuse for monsters and Tesla one for technology, let them be.

Tesla Vs. Lovecraft is the type of game that someone comes up with, and thinks "this will never work." The premise is ludicrous, and shouldn't end up being a cohesive experience. Fortunately, this top-down shooter is a blast to play. It's fast-paced, hectic, difficult, fun-to-play, and ultimately, rewarding.

Sci fi, gothic horror and general shooter fans alike will have a great time with Tesla vs Lovecraft, if not a hugely intellectual one.

Beautiful contrasts and lights in a difficult, fun and addictive enough proposal to spend a pleasant time at the controls

Tesla vs Lovecraft is a fun twin-stick shooter, made even better by being technically on-point and very clean to play.

Mindless fun is the biggest selling point, and though I had hoped for some more weapons to play with and better level variety, Tesla vs Lovecraft is still a riotous twin stick shooter.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is a solid and fun twin-stick shooter. A wide variety of weapons, gadgets, and perks keep things fresh and interesting. Other than a lack of mission variety and no online co-op, this is a game that will keep me wreaking havoc on Lovecraft's monsters for a while.

Considering the source material, there probably was a lot more potential in terms of story or characterisation but when all is said and done, shooters don't tend to dwell too much on nuance. Tesla vs Lovecraft is a competent top-down, twin-stick shooter and arguably the most polished title in the developer's catalogue. Taking the fun but limited template of Crimsonland and building an entertaining and visually striking, but familiar and repetitive experience. It's unlikely to get pulses racing in terms of original gameplay, however, the perks system, crazy weapons and relentless explosive action should spark enthusiasm among fans of the genre.

Tesla vs. Lovecraft is imbued with a frenetic, bold energy that I only wish its designers had committed to more strongly. While there is fun in the premise of knocking back waves of Lovecraftian horrors while teleporting around them and maximizing Tesla's devices, none of these concepts ever truly hits the mark. The result is a distracting but ultimately mindless exercise in repetition, which fails to ever become truly interesting.

A relatively unambitious but entertaining top-down blaster, Tesla vs Lovecraft is wholly satisfying and enjoyable shooter romp that effortlessly steals morsels of your time away.

Take this game for what it is, an addictive twin-stick shooter which will ram more and more enemies down your throat until you learn to survive. For me, there is nothing more fun than blasting hordes of enemy creatures away with varying perks and weapons. It's by no means perfect but I will take a game like this most days of the week on my Switch for a bit of mindless action where the campaign is satisfying and the survival mode with online leaderboards is enough to keep me coming back over and over again. Everybody needs a game like this on their Switch and in their lives!

Tesla vs Lovecraft is named after two celebrities from human history, something quite unusual and, despite the cliched story of a conflict involving vengeance and the end of the world, it is worth playing. It's not 10tons best title when evaluating by the variety of weapons, but it will provide tons of fun. Undoubtedly it's their most frenetic title so far, and that makes it a great title for those who enjoy the genre.

All said, Tesla Vs. Lovecraft is probably the best 10 Tons game I’ve played to date from concept to execution. It puts everything they have on the table, looks incredible, plays smoothly, and is simply a hell of a lot of fun. I’m hoping to see just a little more come to the table to make the experience even better but if you’ve got a soft spot for some intense twin-stick shooting action you (and a friend if you’d like) really need to put this at the top of your list.

Ultimately, Tesla vs. Lovecraft isn't particularly innovative but is, nonetheless, extremely enjoyable and easy to pick up and play. Milestone challenges and higher difficulty levels will encourage players to come back for more. However, a woefully underdeveloped story contributes to an overall lack of personality depth, which leaves this game feeling less memorable than its solid gameplay perhaps deserves.
