Pooplers is far from alone, as anyone who has had the misfortune of scrolling through the Switch eShop can attest. It’s just the game unfortunate enough to land in my crosshairs. Much like Steam, the Nintendo Switch eShop has been inundated with cheap asset flips, knock offs, and shovelware While Nintendo’s apparent refusal to exercise any measure of quality control is beyond the scope of this review, putting Pooplers into a wider context feels necessary. It’s a tiny part of a much bigger problem.
My time spent with Pooplers was disappointing as it wasn't fun. I thought to myself several times when playing, "Who thought this was a good idea?" and "People are expected to play this and enjoy it?" I would not suggest this game to be played at your next gaming party or at all.
We’re sure there are people out there that would get some enjoyment out of this game, but quite frankly, we’re struggling to believe that might be true. Its gameplay is sluggish, the graphics are poor, and the general premise is just baffling.
Even though it features a few different modes and simple multiplayer gameplay, Pooplers is still worth its weight in poop.
