Goblin Sword's developers are clearly talented so I look forward to their next game where they'll hopefully iron out a lot of wrinkles.

Goblin Sword on the Switch is a must for everyone who loves old-school platforming adventure games! The sense of accomplishment you get from studying bosses and then using that knowledge in order to defeat them is very satisfying and nostalgiac for an older gamer like me. Not to mention the feeling of rapture you get from rushing back to the store, to look at and test out the new weapons and armour you’ve excavated from each level, is something I rarely have in games like this – especially when some of the unlocks are purely cosmetic only. Finally, the profuse amount of content, ranging from the number of enemies to the abundance of deadly traps, will leave you overwhelmed with originality, excitement, and determination to progress and see what else is in store for you.

HugePixel clearly has an affinity with all things old-school. Their love for the retro titles shines through in this modern game, and I loved it. Every element filled me with nostalgia, and they got the balance of difficulty just right. Though it’s only a short game, it won’t take up much room in your library and can be played casually. Do I recommend it? Absolutely! And you can buy a copy here! Can you help the hero solve the puzzles and defeat everything in his path? Find that wizard and get your one true love back.

While not mind-blowing in any way, Goblin Sword is as good as a budget-tiered Metroidvania can get – with the added appeal of light RPG elements.
