5 / 10.0 - Refunct
Jun 20, 2019

Refunct feels like the promising start of something bigger and better. Despite some real potential, it ends up bringing little that excites or leave much of an impression, due to its scant half hour or so of gameplay. It's priced right, but Refunct might be a game you only play once.

Whilst I can't justify anyone purchasing this title, there was effort put in at least… The developer's pride for an Advance Wars style game shined through, which I can appreciate. It has its issues whether it be a cluttered user interface, bad graphics, and similar environments, which can make it easy to overlook this title, and I can't say you'd be missing much. If you are an Advance Wars fan, you might want to try looking elsewhere, that is, if you can't overlook these points of concern (a good starting place might be Chucklefish's latest hit – Wargroove).

4.5 / 10.0 - Back In 1995
Jun 19, 2019

The 32-bit generation is one that I feel more indies should look toward after a plethora of 8-bit and 16-bit inspired titles have already dominated the scene. But Back in 1995 is too visually distracting, too slow, and too short for its $9.99 price. Nonetheless, the idea here is sound. With a better camera, a bit more speed, some expanded gameplay, and less negligence towards full-on emulation, a future installment could provide a nice retro fix.

8.5 / 10.0 - Gato Roboto
Jun 18, 2019

Gato Roboto accomplishes so much with so little. Even those it looks like a game that would be on the Atari 2600 or the big brick Gameboy, every aspect of Kiki's world glows as bright as one of the best of the Metroidvania genre. Plus, it's a cat in a mech suit, does a game get any more charming than that?

Jun 17, 2019

"World End Syndrome" takes the standard visual novel game and adds graphically stunning illustrations to heighten the creepy factor as you unravel the mysteries behind Mihate Town.

7.5 / 10.0 - Shakedown: Hawaii
Jun 16, 2019

Regardless of how "intense" it is (or isn't) Shakedown: Hawaii is still a fun, beautiful game, and I enjoyed my overall experience with it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Chicken Rider
Jun 15, 2019

There isn't a lot of substance to Chicken Rider, but its bright colours and silly sounds make it enjoyable enough.

It’s not a game you’ll ever go out of your way to play, but keep it on your home screen and you might be surprised how often you’ll bust it open.

7 / 10.0 - Darkest Hunters
Jun 8, 2019

Darkest Hunters is a good game (even with some misspelled text and odd streaks as noted) and provides plenty of play time for the price.

7 / 10.0 - Hue
Jun 6, 2019

Overall, if you are looking for a nice tale to dip your toes into and finish in one sitting, this game is for you. If you are looking for a game that you will delve into for a long while, well, you won't find that here. The game offers an indulging story of a mother's disappearance, but with a splash of color. It's gorgeous art style and meaningful mechanics make this game a worthwhile addition to all Switch libraries; that is, once a sale happens or more content is added.

8 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
Jun 6, 2019

While I still have some concerns with Team Sonic Racing, I can't deny that I've come around to it. I've sunk over 15 hours, across several extended play sessions, and had quite a bit of fun doing so. The $39.99 launch price is more than fair for what's included here. If you're looking for an enjoyable alternative after playing Mario Kart 8 for the past five years, Team Sonic Racing smoothly drifts its way to a decisive silver trophy. Start your engines!

If you are looking for a stealth game of any sort, or are considering getting into Assassin’s Creed, this game is a must buy. Despite the few issues like unnoticeable graphical improvements and a slow beginning, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered features solid gameplay and a story underneath its surface that more than quantifies the investment.

6.5 / 10.0 - Iron Snout
Jun 5, 2019

Iron Snout is a simple, fun game that probably makes more sense on a smartphone. At $4.99 it's not going to break your piggy bank, but keep in mind that it probably won't keep your interest for more than an hour or two.

7.5 / 10.0 - Unruly Heroes
Jun 4, 2019

Unruly Heroes is far from a bad game. In fact, it has some of my favorite platforming of recent memory, at least in terms of pure gameplay. It just lacks the polish needed for platformer completionists like me, and it's uncompelling story and music did not help. At least the developers are supporting it with content, despite it being months after its launch. If you are looking for an affordable platformer, this game is a must, but don't expect to be putting in the same hours as Yoshi's Crafted World.

The Swords Of Ditto: Mormo's Curse a very fun RPG that's well thought out and excellently put together. For RPG and Zelda fans, this is a must-have for a modern take on a retro theme.

6.5 / 10.0 - Lapis x Labyrinth
Jun 4, 2019

It's fun, but I'm not sure how much I'll come back to it. The repetition can't be avoided when playing for any real length, both in gameplay and level design. Lapis x Labyrinth has too many concerns that prevent me from giving it a broad recommendation at $29.99. But I can't deny that it offers some short-term, if shallow, fun, so bookmark this one for a future sale if it sounds interesting to you.

Much like its spin-off, Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland, is a great escape from reality, and an even greater entry in the Atelier franchise. Despite its localization issues, it is a great game all RPG fans must experience. With its enjoyable long-lasting content as a result of the new Alchemyriddle system, rewarding gameplay, and visually impressive art style, it is hard not to recommend this title.

A short but sweet adventure, The Little Acre is a must for genre fans. Even if it is overpriced on the Nintendo Switch, it has too much quality and charm to skip.

10 / 10.0 - Crystal Crisis
May 31, 2019

Save Tetris and Puyo Pop for when you want to wind down before bedtime. Crystal Crisis is as intense as puzzle gaming gets and has sparked new life into a genre not known for surprises. From the heart-pumping puzzle action to the full-fledged story mode and a roster that screams "fan service," it would be a crime to call Crystal Crisis anything less than an absolute diamond.
