Review: Hot Shot Burn

Available from 1st October 2020 on Nintendo Switch – Published by: Forever Entertainment Local multiplayer games have been making a resurgence after a good few years in the wilderness and the Switch, with its portability and bundled Joy-Con controllers that guarantee instant two player action with so many games, is the perfect home for local multiplayer fun. Hot Shot Burn […]

Review: Bomber Fox (Switch)

Available now on Switch (£4.49/$4.99) – Published by Forever Entertainment One area in which the brilliant Bomberman games has always felt lacking is with the single player modes; there’s simply not enough variety or unpredictability with the enemy AI to give the game the same addictive spark that powers the near-peerless multiplayer action. However, an addictive, varied and surprisingly expansive […]

Review: Gamory Switch Controller

Looking like a cross between the controller that was bundled with ill-fated Android console, the Ouya, and an Xbox One controller, the Gamory Switch Controller isn’t going to win any points for originality. However unoriginal and uninspired the design may be, it makes up for this by being incredibly cheap and yet nicely featured, especially for the price point. Switch […]

Review: Pack Master

Available on: Switch, Android & iOS – Version Played: Switch – Price (Switch): £4.49/$4.99 – Published by: Forever Entertainment Tapping into the same oddly therapeutic arranging of objects as games such as Tetris – albeit in a far less abstract sense – Pack Master sees you trying to pack all of your stuff into increasingly oddly shaped and cramped suitcases. […]

Review: Bug Academy

Version Played: Switch (also available on PC) – Price: £11.69/$12.99 – Published by: Ultimate Games Every now and then, a game comes along which really surprises you. Not always in a good way of course. Thankfully, Bug Academy is a game that surprises for the right reasons. A game about different types of insects working their way through lessons at […]

Review: Can Androids Pray: variation_Blue

Version Played: Switch (Also available on: Mac, WIndows, Xbox One) – Published by: aPriori Digital It’s very rare that a game can really make you ponder the deeper, more existential questions that sometimes nag at us in our more contemplative moments. Perhaps even more unexpected is that the rather philosophical game in question would be set during a conversation between […]

Kickstarter Campaign: Commander ’85

Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign – and around 40% funded with 27 days to go as of the time of writing – Commander ’85 is an adventure game for PC and consoles, with release planned for Autumn 2020. Capitalising on the currently very widespread nostalgia for the 80s, it’s a game that’s absolutely loaded from top to […]

Review: Pooplers

Version Played: Switch (also available on Steam) – $8.99/£8.09 – Art Games Studio SA Multiplayer party games aren’t in short supply on Switch, with lots of great titles to choose from. Pooplers is a game that had – until release – flown entirely under my radar, but it’s a surprisingly engaging experience. In the main versus mode of Pooplers, players […]

Review: Poly Puzzle

Version Played: Switch – Available now (£4.49/$4.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment There’s a huge amount of puzzle games available on the Switch. Plenty of them boast about how relaxing they are, but in my experience – with my brain often struggling to get to grips with most puzzlers – they can actually be pretty frustrating. Poly Puzzle is a […]

Review: Ski Sniper

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£4.49/$4.99) Imagine Sniper Elite, only instead of sniping the testicles of German soldiers you’re shooting at skiers. And instead of being able to roam expansive levels, sniping at targets in whatever order you choose, generally at your own pace, instead you’re in a fixed position with only a few seconds to hit a fast […]

Review: Wanderlust Travel Stories

Version Played: Switch – Price: £13.49/$14.99 – Published by Forever Entertainment – Release Date: 27th Feb 2020 Even if you’ve played visual novels before, it’s probably fair to say that you’re unlikely to have played anything quite like Wanderlust: Travel Stories.   The narrative – or narratives, given that you’ll encounter the stories of more than one character as you […]

Review: Help Me Doctor!

Out now on Switch – Price £7.19/$7.99 Though initially looking like a way of cashing in on the nostalgia for Theme Hospital – not to mention the interest in the imminent arrival of Theme Hospital’s spiritual successor, Two Point Hospital, on the Switch – Help Me Doctor! isn’t a cartoony, medical profession-based strategy game. Instead, it’s a game in which […]

Review: Clumsy Rush

Available Now on Nintendo Switch (£4.99/$4.99) I didn’t know what to expect when trying Clumsy Rush for the first time. It has a lovely, squishy look to the characters – […]

Review: Super Tennis

Available: Now (US)/ TBC (EU) – Price: $5.99/£TBC You’d be forgiven for confusing this Super Tennis with the SNES game that has the exact same title. To add to the confusion, the SNES game is even available on the Switch via Nintendo’s retro game library (itself a bonus for subscribers to the Nintendo online service). The only thing this Super […]

Review: OmoTomO

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£8.99/$9.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment Puzzle games can go one of two ways for me; they’re either extremely frustrating or incredibly compelling. I’m pleased to report that OmoTomO falls into the latter category. A puzzle game featuring two snake-like plant creatures trying to make their way to the pots filled with water in […]
