8.5 / 10.0 - Promenade
Feb 21, 2024

Promenade has a simple, yet mysterious, story and practical gameplay that is extremely well planned and executed for what is expected from a platformer. Its developer knew how to extract the qualities of classics of the genre and combine them with the identity of its creation, resulting in a title that will probably fulfill its role for longer than normally expected from an indie, despite occasional moments of boredom, which is common even in smaller games. If you enjoy platformers and are looking for an honest and well-made experience, you can go without fear.

Devil Inside Us: Roots of Evil is a horror game with an unusual concept, putting us in the role of a physically vulnerable individual in a situation of extreme danger and urgency. However, the creatures leave a lot to be desired when it comes to their movements, and the presence of bugs compromises the general experience, resulting in a title that, despite its potential, doesn't reach the full extent of its expectations.

8 / 10.0 - Bahnsen Knights
Jan 28, 2024

Bahnsen Knights has the hard mission of entertaining a public already used to modernity. Reader, if you didn't know about this detail, the expression Pulp Fiction is synonymous with dynamic narrative, clearly outlined characters, heroes and villains, action and drama, adventure and exoticism. We have all of this in Bahnsen Knights. The game has an interesting visual and, unlike others, an extremely captivating soundtrack and a story worthy of the pulp genre. Even though it hasn't been localized in Brazilian Portuguese, the game may be a good entrypoint for learning, as its dialogues have a rich vocabulary.

5 / 10.0 - DreadOut 2
Jan 19, 2024

DreadOut 2 draws inspiration from consolidated franchises and titles, but it ends up delivering a clumsy, tedious and monotonous experience. Unfortunately, the promising premise of exploring legends from such a different culture is undervalued in a low quality horror game. Even if we consider the average works in the genre, there are more compelling options available.

With beautiful background sceneries, compelling plot, precise gameplay, well executed platforming moments, and epic battles, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is the triumphant return that we have waited to celebrate the 35 years of the series.

The Curse of Kudan may not be a long visual novel but it offers, during its approximate 10 hours of content, three different endings to the intriguing mystery that gave birth to the urban legend, also impacting its replay factor. Though the romance between the girls is the end result in the game, this element is a mere consequence of investigating the cases presented in the story. Though it has some small issues in the plot development, mainly in quite obvious choices during the deduction stages, this is an excellent visual novel for the Switch library, especially for the fans of girls love.

I begrudgingly must say A Long Journey to an Uncertain End isn't a game I can recommend. It brings a story filled with fun characters and a universe I loved getting to know and the gameplay concept could have made a fantastic experience. Unfortunately, the lack of polish and care when transposing this adventure to the Switch impacted the full package too significantly to let it[s issues] slide.

Xuan Yuan Sword: Mists Beyond The Mountains is a game with a unique and fresh narrative in a market dominated by Japanese and Western titles, with a plot that discusses sensible and polemic themes. The game plays with mixing religions and a big amount of folklore myths from various parts of the world. Even though its gameplay isn't quite attractive and its graphics feel outdated sometimes, the different plot compensates [its failures] for those who are patient for an oldfashioned title when looking for an adventure filled with surprises and twists.

8 / 10.0 - Rising Dusk
Dec 30, 2023

Rising Dusk doesn't beat around the bush: it gets its foot in the door, shows up, fulfills its role very well and ends its journey without delay. The short campaign of this beautiful and creative platformer is a reflection of the work of an artist with an obvious knowledge of the world of games and a vast cultural background that he applied to his work with due knowledge of the facts. There's no secret here: if you enjoy platform titles, get ready to experience first-hand a notable little thing of the genre.

For those who are fervorous fans of Touhou, Koumajou Remilia II: Stranger’s Requiem is yet another quality spin-off with a darker approach to the seventh game of the franchise, Perfect Cherry Blossom. However, due to the persisting issues in its punitive gameplay and the extremely linear stages, it's hard to recommend this Touhouvania to people who only love metroidvanias — for those, Touhou Luna Nights ends up as a better example of its genre.

At first, it's tough to understand how Fitness Boxing Fist of the North Star exists. The intersection of fans of the exercising franchise and Hokuto no Ken must be way too small to justify a game mixing the two brands. However, it's a combo that works. Yes, the gameplay base is still untouched and those who have been playing boxe games from the get-go will be frustrated in seeing pretty much all the same issues here. However, the game still provides good aerobics and muscle training activities, and can be a good ally for a healthier life. Besides, the modes inspired by Fist of the North Star can diversify the gameplay.

9.5 / 10.0 - Outer Wilds
Dec 20, 2023

Whether due to the mystery surrounding the Nomai, the secrets that permeate the universe, the diversity of unique planets or the freedom given to the player, the Mobius Digital game is, without a shadow of a doubt, extraordinary. The absence of clear indicators of progress and the need to cultivate active curiosity may initially pose challenges for some players; however, for those willing to become deeply involved in the plot and uncover the secrets of this intriguing cosmos, Outer Wilds offers a truly unforgettable experience, proving to be an unmissable game for authentic and curious explorers.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! -Pirates of the Disturbance- is a good example of its genre, featuring charismatic characters and a well-organized plot whose details are sprinkled across multiple routes. The game is more inviting for those who already know the original material and want to experience a little more of the interactions between Catarina and her potential boyfriends, but it can also be easily enjoyed by those who are not yet familiar with the franchise.

6 / 10.0 - Born of Bread
Dec 16, 2023

Born of Bread appears as yet another Paper Mario clone that fails to achieve the balance that the original game has to offer. A series of inconsistencies, from the visuals to several basic game design and world-building choices, hinder the player's final experience. The offer of good RPGs on the Switch is too large for you to waste time on titles like this, unless unless you really miss something in the Paper Mario style and have already played the originals thousands of times.

8.5 / 10.0 - TEVI
Dec 15, 2023

With the abundance of quality metroidvanias on the Nintendo console, standing out is an increasingly difficult mission. Still, due to the quality of its elements, large amount of content and great adaptation, TEVI easily joins the list of good games of its genre on Switch, offering a lot of action and fun for bullet hell and anime-themed enthusiasts. If you thought 2023 couldn't get any better, CreSpirit is here to prove otherwise with an instant cult classic. We, the players, benefit from this.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince emerges as a triumph in the evolution of the Monsters subseries, celebrating its 25th anniversary with an incredible feat. By harmoniously fusing an engaging plot with fun game mechanics, the title transcends expectations, positioning itself not only as a standout among its predecessors, but as one of the best examples of creating and battling little monsters.

With the abundance of quality metroidvanias currently available on Switch, standing out is no easy task. Nevertheless, with great visuals and animations, fun combat and a simple but intriguing narrative, 9 Years of Shadows fulfills its mission and delivers an adventure that deserves to be experienced. Its linearity and short duration may disappoint some players, but it's undeniable that the mix of color, musicality and action works well here — and, given the competent adaptation and its inherent versatility, Nintendo's hybrid console is the best way to experience it.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pesterquest
Dec 8, 2023

Just like Hiveswap Friendsim, I recommend Pesterquest, but there's a caveat. Just like its predecessor, the game is confusing, weird and can be frustrating at times with its annoying protagonist, but it still presents something that kept bringing me back to the game: the characters' charm, the simplicity of wishing for friends, and the good atmosphere.

In Stars and Time explores a curious concept of time loop at the end of an RPG journey. The result is a curious mini-RPG where the high quality of the character writing is the high point of the experience. For people who like experimental works in the genre, this is an easy recommendation.

7.5 / 10.0 - Hiveswap Friendsim
Dec 6, 2023

Now comes the golden question: do I recommend Hiveswap Friendsim? I pondered about it a lot while playing and, in the end, I'd say it's worth knowing this peculiar universe. It's a confusing, weird game, and it may be frustrating sometimes, but it also has something that always brought me back to playing it: the characters' charm, the simplicity of wishing for friends, and the good ambiance. It may be imperfect but that does not mean it's bad.
