REVIEW – Koloro (Switch)

Auto Run Jumper Koloro essentially mixes the auto-running and platforming of Super Mario Run with a simplified visual style to something like Limbo.  Gameplay couldn’t be more simple as only a single button is used to jump, wall jump, and slide a cube to the exit of a single screen platform maze.  There are all …

REVIEW – Wondershot (Switch)

Missing That One(der)Shot Originally released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2016, Wondershot has now been ported to Nintendo Switch. The local couch multiplayer environment works well with the Switch hardware but ultimately results in a slightly more fleshed out Mario Party mini game. From a single screen top down view, up to four …

REVIEW – Hyperide Vector Raid (Switch)

Where Is the Game? The description of Hyperide: Vector Raid states this $3.99 Nintendo Switch eShop title has been inspired by classic River Raid and Tron.

REVIEW – Stardust Galaxy Warriors – Stellar Climax (Switch)

Customizing Your Shooter Stardust Galaxy Warriors – Stellar Climax has to be one of the most customizable shooters ever made. While not as bullethell-ish as Ikaruga but nowhere near at punishing as R-Type, this horizontal shooter, by default, is somewhere in-between. However, the default setting does not really mean much since the player as access …

REVIEW – Coloring Book + DLC (Switch)

Limiting Your Inner Artist Released as a free-to-start free app on the Switch eShop, Coloring Book is just that – a digital coloring book. Even though this program doesn’t cost anything, the limited options and scope of overall design won’t hold your attention unless you are under six years old. The user is free to …

REVIEW – Distrust (PS4)

Insane From The Pain Inspired by The Thing, Distrust is mostly about surviving harsh conditions in a frozen wasteland. Not only will you need to scavenge for supplies, the player also has to worry about not freezing, staving hunger, and not going insane. In fact, Distrust plays more like a real time strategy game mixed …
