Red's Kingdom is a very fun Metroidvania puzzle adventure that is very addictive, and even more so on Nintendo Switch since you can easily pick it up, play for 10-20 minutes, and then come back to it in similar gaming chunks, or go all in and spend hours with the game as you try to find everything it has to offer. It's simple gameplay mechanics make it an easy pick-up and play release, and its clever puzzle design and Metroidvania styling will have you coming back for more.

The game was first released on mobile, and this isometric Metroidvania/puzzle game has been perfectly ported to the Nintendo Switch, feeling right at home on Nintendo's hybrid console as if it was always intended for release on Nintendo's latest hardware. You'd be mistaken to think that the fact that this game was originally released for mobile means it's a short adventure since this is anything but. You're looking at roughly 5-7 hours for completing the game, with a bit extra on top if you want to 100% it. Red's Kingdom is available right now on the Nintendo Switch, and it's definitely worth your time and hard-earned money, so what are you waiting for? Go and download the game today!

Red's Kingdom strives to combine simple rolling puzzles with the exploration part of a Zelda game... and it just doesn't manage to make the mix actually any fun, mainly because players will have to go through the chore of solving the same puzzles all over again... and more than once.
