Red's Kingdom is full of cutesy charm and clever puzzles that act as a nice way to pass the time in small doses.

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.

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 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed Red's Kingdom and I can safely say that it's currently one of the best indie games on the Switch.

Red’s Kingdom fills a niche that’s been underserved so far on the Switch. The puzzle-adventure genre was never all that popular to begin with, but it’s nice to see a game like this on a current day console. If you like light puzzles, low combat adventure games that are on the cartoony side, this one’s for you!

Red's Kingdom boasts a fun and cute aesthetic, but the gameplay on the Switch proves immensely frustrating. The game is better served as a small-doses adventure on mobile.

Red’s Kingdom is a quirky fun puzzle adventure game that will suit gamers of all ages. It fits the pick and go style of the Nintendo Switch and really suits the handheld mode. I could see myself playing this game on my train commute or during my lunch break. The puzzles are clever and require creative thinking. Just don’t over think them though! The solutions are often very easy!
