Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! PS4/Switch trailer
Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! isn't anything we haven't already seen before. Forging and selling weapons is fun once you get into the rhythm of it, and there's plenty within the potato world to work towards. This is a game that can be played for a few minutes or hours per day, depending on how much you enjoy the genre. What's frustrating is how this title has been adapted to the Switch. It's got a clunky user interface that doesn't really feel compatible with the Joy-Cons and even if you opt with the screen by itself as a touchpad it still feels difficult to complete the most basic of tasks. All up, this makes it the hardest version of the game to play. Overlooking these problems, it's still worth checking out if you're looking for a game of this type and one with plenty of humour - it's just far from spud-tacular.
When I received this game for review, I had this marvelous exchange with my wife about it! Ceidz: “Hey I received a new game for review!” Wife: “Really? What kind of game is it?” Ceidz: “How can I put this….? (thinking) Well, you're a potato…. and you're running this weapon shop…” Wife: “LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL”
