Critic Reviews for Zarvot

Zarvot is a unique experience that's right at home on the Nintendo Switch. It's commitment to manic, arcade shooting is one of its biggest strengths, but this unfortunately highlights the game's weaker elements, namely the platforming. The narrative is ultimately the stand out feature here, as the nuanced character writing highlights the surprisingly profound overarching narrative in a way that keeps players engaged.

Fun but modest arcade shooter that is one of the hidden surprises on the eShop.

Zarvot offers the kind of tight arcade-shooter action that lends itself well to epic local competitive scraps; what we have here is a charming, eclectic package that goes all-out to appeal to both solo and social players. It's perhaps a little too scattershot in its mixture of styles and tones, and not all of its ideas hit the target, but there's a whole lot of heart and humour to Snowhydra's little box of tricks, and that goes a long way.

Weighed down by a middling-at-best single player mode, no matter how quirky it attempts to be, Zarvot's trying, polyhedral antics don't justify the price of admission.

While the arena segments and shooting remind me of arcade classics like Smash TV or Robotron, I have never played a game like that with such heartfelt characters and story, pieces that didn't just feel like an afterthought. I won't go so far as to say Zarvot has the wit and soul of a poet, but the writing gives the game life, and it's a title that will stand out this year as having the types of genuinely touching moments we don't often see in video games. I can't give anymore, so check out Zarvot and fall in love with these cubes.
