As a whole package Garage is a breath of musty, diseased, and drug-riddled fresh air on the Switch as there’s truly nothing else on the console like it. Not meant to be a quick spray and pray shooter, the variety in the challenges you’ll face, the line of sight mechanic, and the plain old weirdness throughout make it worthwhile if you’re up for the challenge. I’d hope if there’s more to come of this kind it will be a bit more refined next time, but as a first attempt it’s a bold step and I couldn’t stop playing until I’d reached the conclusion.

Zombies come back to life in this top-view shooter with a classic taste. Simple, fun and highly addictive, Garage becomes a must have if you are keen into B movies or just want to have a moment of relax blowing up some undead heads. Deeper than it looks on a first sight.

A fun top view shooter with some good ideas and a great atmosphere, but it needs some polish (for example, the sudden, and rough, appearance of items and enemies, often when you have em' on your face). Also, the game gets repetitive soon, even with the addition of original ideas (like the motorbike chunk). We also miss more enemy variety.

This may be a bad trip for our hero Butch, but it is a really good twin-stick zombie shooter for you.

Garage is a nice homage to the B-movies of the 1980s, with some top-down action that is not as over the top as other entries in the genre (think Hotline Miami). I had fun during my time with the game, and hopefully you'll give this one a change on Nintendo Switch.

Overall Garage is a good solid title that I can easily give a solid recommendation to. It doesn’t cover any new ground but it’s a well put together offering for those looking for a nice bit of unapologetic action with a horror theme. Sure the combat, especially the close quarters kind, isn’t quite as good as it could be, but there’s still fun to be had exploring the darkness and taking down the undead and gruesome monsters that lurk in garage.

GARAGE: Bad Trip is a top-down twin-stick shooter that wants nothing more than to impress and excite. The sleek visuals and sublime sound design lure you in, then the fast-paced, challenging combat keeps you hooked on clearing level after level. However, missed opportunities and wasted potential take their toll on the game, limiting gameplay variety and giving rise to the game's tamer moments.

Despite its shortcomings, such as the limited variety of situations, Garage delivers. The TinyBuild title brings a good dose of action, being an enjoyable game, but one that could have been used more. The great atmosphere, in addition to its worked pixel art stand out, fulfilling the purpose of ending the zombie threat with a clean shot.

It's just hard to shake the feeling you've played this game before, and better.

My first hour of diving into Garage was extremely promising, but as time went on the honeymoon phase quickly began to fade. Tearing apart zombies and snagging new weapons from a top-down perspective made me feel like I was preparing myself for a recipe of DOOM mixed with an adventure feel from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In that sense, the game serves its purpose, but Garage ends up being just another average take on the overly saturated slew of apocalyptic zombie survival games we've seen over the last decade with an added touch of a twin-stick shooter.
