Review: The Serpent Rogue (Nintendo Switch)

The Serpent Rogue is an interesting mashup. It’s part Souls-like, part crafting, and a whole lot of trial and error. It’s both accessible and challenging, adorable and inscrutable, and quite charming all the while.

Review: orbit.industries (Nintendo Switch)

Did you ever dream of being an astronaut? I did. I was entranced by both the thrill of Buck Rogers’ dogfights-in-space version as well as the dopey goofiness of our actual space program. Enter orbit.industries, a building management sim based on the concept of a commercial orbital station.

Review: Mokoko X (Nintendo Switch)

Short version: Mokoko X is Qix, and Qix is always great. But the developer added two spins to this game: bosses and a storyline. The latter of these is—to put it in technical terms—Bonkers Magoo.
