While there are plenty of games keeping us busy these days, Underhero is one that should be on your radar at some point. The light price tag and unending charm make it a sleeper hit and one I can whole-heartidly recommend.

Underhero is a brilliant game with quirky and fun dialogues that knows how to mix elements of different genres.

If you're looking for a refreshing title, Underhero will deliver on this font with its original premise of an RPG-platformer hybrid, but some of its gameplay elements could have been improved upon.

Underhero creatively weaves platforming, turn and timing-based combat, and adventure elements into a gorgeous and inspired experience. Even though it relies a little too much on circuitous paths and the slingshot weapon is frustrating to aim, it's hard not to smile the entire time you're playing Underhero. It's another in the long list of amazing, must-play indie titles that every Switch owner needs to take a long look at. If nothing else, who hasn't wanted to peak behind the curtain at the everyday machinations of an evil overlord and his scores of minions?.

Underhero is a memorable and charming little adventure. By constantly mixing things up, the gameplay never feels stale. And the plot twists your expectations in ways you would have never seen coming.

Underhero is humble indie game that pleases almost every fan of the genre. There are some issues here and there that prevent it from becoming a hit, but there is obvious unreached potential that can be fully reached if the developers are willing to give it more time and attention in the future.

Underhero even replicates the same goofy humour that Paper Mario fans are accustomed to. Dialogue between characters is well written and plenty of laughs are to be had. Underhero is a perfect example of an indie game that can fill the void left by an old favourite, and fans who’ve been waiting patiently for Paper Mario to go back to its RPG roots should definitely take notice.

I honestly don’t think I need to give a precursor to my final verdict. However, I do want to make clear, in each of the categories I broke down above, the game performed phenomenally, I didn’t want to hit you, the reader, over the head in each one by saying “and that’s how they subverted that category while still keeping it interesting” but I will say that all of these things culminate into a beautiful and entertaining game which I would play again and again over years to come. I enjoyed it immensely.
