7.5 / 10.0 - Röki
Oct 18, 2020

Completionists have dozens of collectables to find and badges to unlock, and the subtle background music evokes the feeling of traipsing through a wintery forest. Even though some of the character designs are a little off-putting, the overall art style is quite attractive. Despite not really bringing anything new to the table, Röki provides a solid puzzle-adventure experience that only drags a little towards the end.

4.5 / 10.0 - Cloudpunk
Oct 17, 2020

I'm pretty sure that underneath these performance issues there is an interesting world ready to be explored. But the game's problems run deeper than it's graphical shortcomings. The pacing feels slow and doesn't give the player many options to fully explore the world that is being presented. If Cloudpunk looks interesting to you, I'd highly recommend you look into other possible versions you might be able to play, because the Switch simply isn't the place to explore the city of Nivalis.

7 / 10.0 - Witcheye
Oct 16, 2020

Moon Kid's Witcheye is a very fun, unique twist on the platformer genre, but it could also be described as a one-trick pony. Based around a single gimmick, the gameplay gradually wears thin over the course of its brief length. And truth be told, the unique controls won't be everyone's cup of tea. However, Witcheye is still a very solid recommendation if you're seeking a kid-friendly, Halloween-themed game to play this October.

I've usually been able to play through otome games around holidays, and the batch this year have been great ways to lose entire days. If you're ultra-paranoid about typos Piofiore is an offer you'll have to refuse - but if you can push past that, it will be an emotional roller coaster.

The growth in combat complexity was not only satisfying, but the various upgrades and equips allowed multiple strategies and approaches to levels that were surprisingly robust. There's a beauty to the clean but vibrant backdrops and interstitial drawings. 9 Monkeys of Shaolin is a rewarding beat-em-up that belongs in every fan's library.

7 / 10.0 - Breakpoint
Oct 14, 2020

Breakpoint brings an addicting and fast-paced arcade space shooter to the Nintendo Switch with neon colored action and a catchy techno soundtrack to boot. There isn't much else as far as modes, but the fast restarts can make anyone an addict in short 5 to 10-minute bursts. If the leaderboards do not entice, then the personal challenge to best your high score may be enough to keep bringing you back, if only for another quick run.

7 / 10.0 - Foregone
Oct 13, 2020

Foregone is a good game from start to finish. The combat provides an exciting challenge, the art style is on point, and there are just enough mechanics mixed in from various genres to keep things interesting throughout. However, following the source material of the inspirations a little too closely means Foregone can feel like a lot of good ideas that don't come together in a fully-thought-out package.

8 / 10.0 - Petal Crash
Oct 12, 2020

But honestly? Petal Crash is excellent even just on the strength of that content. The Story Mode is strong in its relative simplicity, and the pre-designed puzzles are enjoyable even when they get delightfully maddening. Here's hoping that, like some of the '90s-era action puzzle games that inspired it, someone will take the concept of Petal Crash and add all sorts of online updates and doodads. That's really the only thing holding this back from being one of the best of its kind on Switch.

Risky's Revenge is very much the Australopithecus of the Shantae series-something of a transitional form between the GBC game and Pirate's Curse. It's fun to play if you're a fan of the series, but I'll say that the next three games easily eclipse it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Kirby Fighters 2
Oct 11, 2020

I don't think there is anything particularly bad here, it's just unimpressively lacking. So for what it's worth, I think you'd get a few hours of enjoyment out of this budget title. Just don't expect anything that you can't find elsewhere.
