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: Crash Drive 3 (Nintendo Switch)

As a single player game, the arcade racer Crash Drive 3 can feel a bit empty. But it’ll very likely be a real hoot for the kids who just want to explore and goof around. As a multiplayer game, it can be a free-for-all blast.

Review: Destroy All Humans! (Nintendo Switch)

I did not play Destroy All Humans on its initial release, and thought maybe it was a twist on Destroy All Monsters. Not quite. If you have not been exposed to this game before, it’s a 1950s “little green men from Mars” coming to kill us all sort of thing…and it’s a hoot.

Review: Cosmic Top Secret (Nintendo Switch)

Cosmic Top Secret is a fun adventure/puzzle game. The odd presentation may strike some as just being weird, but I think it’s quirky enough to be both different and engaging.

Review: Space Commander: War and Trade (Nintendo Switch)

When I got word the next title in the review queue was Space Commander: War and Trade, I was optimistic. After playing this space-sim action/RPG for a while, however, that optimism turned to…meh.

Review: Rip Them Off (Nintendo Switch)

When I first took this review, all I knew was the title: Rip Them Off. I wondered what it would really be about; surely, it wouldn’t be as obvious as it seems. Well, it is that obvious. It’s also a good, unique tower defense game with a comically cynical viewpoint.

Review: Faircroft’s Antiques: Home for Christmas Collector’s Edition (Nintendo Switch)

Faircroft’s Antiques: Home for Christmas Collector’s Edition is a hidden-objects game with a Christmas theme. Even if it isn’t actually Christmas time, we can all use a little more of the Christmas spirit these days.

Review: Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack (Nintendo Switch)

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is a grand strategy game which can almost be called a civilization sim. Does its deep complexity hold up on the Nintendo Switch?

Review: Disjunction (Nintendo Switch)

Welcome to the slightly dysfunctional blending of New York and Central City. In the not-too-distant future, things are so bad that Central Park has been turned into a self-governing entity. But hey, it’s not all bad; at least there are still drug deals and murders to investigate.

Review: Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest (Nintendo Switch)

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of The Forest is presented as something of a cross between a classic tabletop RPG and a “choose your own adventure” graphic novel. It’s a format that works pretty well, but it’s over far too soon.

Review: Kingdom Tales 2 (Nintendo Switch)

In Kingdom Tales 2, you are a young man on a journey to prove you’re worthy of being considered a suitor to the princess. The flavor in this installment leans to a more Nordic/Viking vibe, but is that enough of a difference to make it a worthy follow-up?

Review: Kingdom Tales (Nintendo Switch)

Kingdom Tales is another in a long line of resource management sims from Ocean Media. It’s also the first of two Kingdom Tales titles available for Nintendo Switch. This repetition is not necessarily a bad thing, however, so let’s get to some details.

Review: DungeonTop (Nintendo Switch)

Grab your deck; it’s time to take another dungeon dive with DungeonTop. This game is easily recognized as a computerized, deck-building version of a classic, turn-based D&D game. I do like the whole D&D genre for a bit of escapist fun, so let’s get right to the game, shall we?

Review: SYNTHETIK: Ultimate (Nintendo Switch)

If you like running around shooting things, have got a game for you. SYNTHETIK: Ultimate offers several levels of shooting everything which moves, and trying to not die while doing it. But is the Switch port of this free-to-play PC game worth the price?

Review: Unhatched (Nintendo Switch)

Unhatched is billed as a Puzzle Adventure Card Game, and that is fairly accurate. There are cards involved, the story is an adventure tale, and winning each round is more like solving a puzzle. Fair enough.
