REVIEW – Akane (Switch)

One Woman Army Akane is a low cost one-hit one-kill arena slasher on the Switch eShop.  Think Robotron but without twin-stick controls, a neon landscape, you fight Yakuza instead of aliens, and with a stronger emphasis on melee combat. Death will inevitably strike the player but the goal is to take as many Yakuza with …

REVIEW – Blazing Beaks (Switch)

A twin-stick rogue-lite, Blazing Beaks is a simple, straight to the point action game that carries hours of play-die-repeat entertainment value. Gameplay-wise, there is a lot in common with games like Mana Spark with one of the biggest differences being all action takes place on a single screen giving more of a winner-takes-all arena vibe. …

REVIEW – Not Not A Brain Buster (Switch)

Up Down Left Right Ported from the mobile environment, Not Not A Brain Buster is simple but challenging brain teasing reaction based puzzle game. Enjoyable when played in five-minute increments, this Switch port has a new multiplayer feature and only costs a couple of bucks on the eShop. Using only a single analog stick, the …

REVIEW – Unit 4 (Switch)

Unit 4 looks and sounds like an awesome game on paper and even from the gameplay trailer: 4 player co-op platforming, four unique characters each with their own special ability, tons of levels to explore, boss battles, pixel art and animations that look like a Mega Man knockoff, unlockables to purchase, and even a couple …

While traveling through space on a vacation trip, the playable character gets knocked off course, …

REVIEW – Mana Spark (Switch)

The Mana Game You Didn’t Know You Wanted Mana Spark is an action RPG that carries a high difficulty, especially when first starting the quest, but ultimately winds up being a highly rewarding and unexpected gameplay experience. Although “Mana” is in the title, it has nothing in common with fan-favorite Secret of Mana other than …

REVIEW – Super Hero Fight Club: Reloaded (Switch)

Spoofing The Fighter Originally released on mobile and Steam, Super Hero Fight Club: Reloaded has now been ported to Switch with four-player support. This single screen 2D action one-hit kill arena fighter is short on options but can provide simple entertainment in short bursts if you have other local humans in which to play. Starting …

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 …
