Maybe it is just the way the game is designed, maybe it is because of the poor balance, but The Legend of Evil ends up feeling like a puzzle game. It doesn't work as intended, or at least it doesn't seem like it. Without better balance, or maybe just a better explanation of what you are meant to do, this game has an unplayable campaign, but an enjoyable enough ‘arcade' mode.

Colorful and fun, that's the way The Legend of Evil works. With a very retro style, we enjoy great battles against the good guys in this great strategy-tower defense game.

The Legend of Evil is a charming strategy game. The gameplay is tricky with 20 unique tower defense levels with an extra mode. This one is worth a try.

The Legend of Evil feels like a fine example of a diamond in the rough game if you're a fan of tower defense games and are looking for a challenge. The developers have stated that there's more to come for this title and honestly, I couldn't be happier as it has a lot of potential to be a truly fantastic game. I'd definitely recommend adding this gem to your Switch library.
