About David Temple

I started covering games for iOS in 2013, and made the Switch to Nintendo (you see what I did there) in 2019. I enjoy tabletop, mobile, and console gaming—just about anything which can provide a little diversion, a brain teaser, or an adventure. A little play every day can be good for you. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Review: Defend the Rook (Nintendo Switch)

Another game, another chance to ask “Who’s the tank?” Defend the Rook looks like a mélange of game types—a scoop of rogue-like, a handful of tower defense, a dash of RPG, and there you have it. It’s also quite good.

Review: Castle Morihisa (Nintendo Switch)

Castle Morihisa is a rogue-like-card/deck-building-turn-based game. We’ve seen this sort of thing before, but while many elements will look familiar, the game’s depiction and characterization of feudal Japan make it something interesting all on its own.
