Inspired by both modern and old school shooters and from the developers behind Midnight Deluxe, InkSplosion is an arcade delight that is simple to learn, yet hard to master, thanks to endless levels that are decorated only by your colourful ammunition.
Should you rise to the challenge and emerge experience, it only means it is time to bid “farewell” to Normal mode and say “hello” to Arena and Hard, 2 brutal modes that would offer even the most gung-ho of players a worthy conquest!
Once you start playing, it becomes really hard to stop!
* 3 Game Modes (Normal, Arena & Hard)
* Endless Levels
* 5 Different Weapon Types
* Original Soundtrack by Levi Bond
* Voice over by Barry Dunne
InkSplosion - Launch Trailer
InkSplosion doesn't manage to stand out amidst the shoot'em ups available for the Nintendo Switch. While its visual environment is worthy of praise and its controls are responsive and well implemented, the game itself suffers from a lack of variety which turns it into a dull and repetitive effort, without any reason to attract any players to this work.

InkSplosion could have been so much more, but it's ultimately let down by a sheer lack of variety (and a frustrating lack of replay value once you've swiftly bagged all of its in-game achievements). As a top-down shooter it's certainly competent, but it's unlikely you'll hang around for long with so many other fuller packages on offer on the Switch eShop.
