REVIEW – X-Morph: Defense (Switch)

Twin-Stick Tower Defense X-Morph: Defense separates itself from other games in the tower defense genre in two ways. First is the incorporation of twin-stick shooter gameplay. Second is that the player is playing as the invading aliens, the bad guys, trying to take over Earth. Combined with a solid presentation and lengthy campaign, X-Morph: Defense …

REVIEW – Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight (Switch)

Adding RPG to WW2 Dogfights Referencing real world World War II aircraft, Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight is an unexpected quality plane fighter.  Thanks to simple but engrossing RPG elements, the player always has something to do even when not shooting down the enemy out of the sky. Not truly simulation but not totally arcadey, this flight …

REVIEW – YUMENIKKI -DREAM DIARY- (Switch)

Surreal Nightmare Originally created in 2004 via RPG Maker, Yume Nikki received a cult following in Japan and eventually made its way to the west via unofficial fan translation.  However, I went into this Switch release of Yume Nikki –Dream Diary- absolutely blind and boy was I in for a shock.  Using dark, unsettling gameplay …

REVIEW – Nice Slice (Switch)

Watch Your Fingers Nice Slice sort of mixes the reaction based chopping mechanic of Fruit Ninja and combines it with the physics of Angry Birds to create something more satisfying that you might think. The player only controls the downward thrust of a chopping knife that waves back and forth over different foods.  Chopping thinly …

REVIEW – Guess The Word (Switch)

Edutainment Like Pet Care, Guess The Word is another Switch app that is designed to help teach your youngster with spelling. Solely using the touch screen, the player is presented with a picture and a set of letters, like the tiles in a game of Scrabble, and the player needs to spell what the picture …

REVIEW – Pet Care (Switch)

What’s For Dinner? (Please take the review score and this article with a grain of salt as I am very much not the target demographic for this title.) Why is it that adults always teach kids the sounds that animals make, and then quiz them to death on it?  The cow goes moo.  The duck …

REVIEW – Avenger Bird (Switch)

Not Related to Flappy Bird Avenger Bird’s name and game icon might make it seem like it is some type of Flappy Bird clone but is actually an old school platformer.  With 8-bit pixelated graphics, it sort of looks and plays like Mutant Mudds only with much floatier jumps. Playing as a bird trying to …

REVIEW – Hyperide (Switch)

Crash And Burn Hyperide is a horizontal scrolling arcade-style endless runner designed like a poor man’s Jetpack Joyride. Players control a ship’s vertical movement with the goal of avoiding cheddar cheese looking asteroids, picking up stray astronauts (why are there so many astronauts just floating in space?), and collecting purple gems. However, although there are …

REVIEW – Tangledeep (Switch)

At first glance, it might be easy to dismiss Tangledeep as another throwback-style RPG with its tile-based 16-bit graphics that sort of looks like a Secret of Mana sequel. The old school visual style, however, gives way to an impressively deep RPG and combat system that hardcore rogue fans will enjoy but will easily intimidate …
