Damsel is a fun arcade-style platformer/shooter/speedrunner/whatever genre you want to call it.  The comic-style motif is a nice concept that I haven't seen for a long time and the gameplay is pretty fluid.  The darkness of the stages and the similarities between the three game modes kind of bring the game down a little, but it's still an enjoyable outing for the Nintendo Switch.

The game lives up to this award, as one of the best independent developed games I’ve played, and so near and dear to my heart that it is from our homeland of Australia. It serves itself well as a casual title that appeals to a niche crowd that absolutely have no love lost for their platformers. Damsel is an intense experience, that will leave hardcore devotee’s for their love of platform shooters, coming back to this title for years to come.

Slaying creatures of the night are something many of us gamers are quite familiar with. Whether we used swords, magic or guns, it always gives a bit of a rush and frankly quite fun.

Damsel delivers a fairly solid experience with a narrative told through neat comic book style strips prior to levels.

Damsel is an intense, occasionally frustrating title, for those who have quick reactions, an eye for planning, and a patience for repetitive death. Those who like their games challenging, twitchy, and demanding of player improvement should consider joining Damsel on her wild ride into the night. But those expecting story, adventure, or even mercy will likely find themselves thirsty for more.
