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.

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 serves as a reasonable replacement until Nintendo decides the future of its papercraft franchise.

Honestly, if you’ve been waiting for a new Paper Mario game, and you’re not that interested in playing Bug Fables on a PC, UnderHero is a must-have.

And while there weren’t many issues I had with this game the controls were definitely one of them. The platforming controls were stellar for the level design but for combat, it was definitely weird.

Underhero created a new concept of combat that worked absolutely perfect, brings out a very colorful world and a new take on hero stories by making the underling the new crowned hero, with a heartwarming and well done story and music to set the atmosphere this game excels in every corner, truly a work of art.
