Review: Barbearian (Nintendo Switch)

It’s time to put on your bearskin cloak, sharpen your battle axe, and get ready to whack some skeleton soldiers—a whooooole lot of skeleton soldiers. Barbearian may look like an indie kiddie game with nothing to challenge or interest a serious gamer, but his is not the case.

Review: Foregone (Nintendo Switch)

Foregone is a basic, side-scrolling platformer that looks like the mid to late ’90s arcade games. I normally don’t get into the whole retro look, but the pixilation here is subtle enough to lend a classic game feel without looking clunky. It helps that the classic action is handled so well, too.

Review: Great Conquerer: Rome (Nintendo Switch)

Great Conqueror: Rome provides a lot of value in gaming time, elements to control, and campaigns to fight. You also get some real history; enough to be interesting and support the game, but not so much that it turns into a history class. But is it fun to play?

Review: Her Majesty’s Ship (Nintendo Switch)

Her Majesty’s Ship has a promising premise. You are the captain of a Ship of the Line, aspiring to become an Admiral. Sadly, those aspirations are dashed against the rocks of an unfriendly shore of design in the middle of a squall of bad user interface.

Review: Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars (Nintendo Switch)

In Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars, you get the chance to prove you can defeat all your enemies and survive for all time—or you can get creamed. Either way, we get to have some fun, right?

Review: Kwaidan: Azuma Manor Story (Nintendo Switch)

The premise of the action/adventure game Kwaidan: Azuma Manor Story involves the classic hero-coming-of-age stuff, so we are off to a good start. Unfortunately, the journey is a bit clunky and fraught with issues from its dated gameplay.

Review: Metamorphosis (Nintendo Switch)

Have you ever had the suspicious feeling your room has been bugged? It may not just be a conspiracy theory, it could be you are the bug. No, really; in Metamorphosis, you transform into a bug. Not the best start to your day, but it could be worse.

Review: Raji: An Ancient Epic (Nintendo Switch)

Review: Faeria (Nintendo Switch)

Faeria is a bit of a mélange of turn-based plus card play plus board game stuffs, all with nice artwork and a general feel that’s a bit reminiscent of Magic: The Gathering and Heroscape. It feels like a game you can play for the next few years and not get weary of it.

Review: Tower of Time (Nintendo Switch)

Have you ever had the feeling the whole world just got turned upside down? In Tower of Time, you don’t get a gravitational inversion for the whole planet (which is a good thing, by the way), but the tower you have to explore is actually upside down.

Review: Hill Climbing Mania (Nintendo Switch)

If you are very young and have a greater allowance of patience than average, you might have some fun with this game. If this doesn’t describe you, I would suggest finding another hill climber game if you really feel the need to drive up and down hills.

Review: Potata: Fairy Flower (Nintendo Switch)

“Welcome to the jungle” sounds a bit harsh, and “a walk in the park” sounds too mild. What we really need is the happy middle ground for Potata: Fairy Flower, a new puzzle-platformer for Nintendo Switch.

Review: Star Horizon (Nintendo Switch)

Although Star Horizon could really use some more levels to stretch out its short story, if you are generally OK with on-rail space shooters, this game is generally OK.

Review: Tharsis (Nintendo Switch)

Tharsis is a mission-to-Mars game. You need to direct the actions of four crew members aboard your spacecraft so you can land at least one person alive on Mars. I would say “safely” on Mars, but this voyage isn’t exactly OSHA approved.

Review: Broken Lines (Nintendo Switch)

When the night falls down around you, and your airplane falls down with it, you know you’re in deep. In Broken Lines, you start at “deep.” So, now that we’re on the ground again, let’s get going—and we’ll talk through some things along the way.

Review: Operencia: The Stolen Sun (Nintendo Switch)

To do today: get up, brush teeth, follow strange dream about a deer and head off to the cursed castle to see what happens. Sounds like a plan, so what could possibly go wrong? Well, we all know the answer to that question, don’t we?
