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.

The unquiet dead are back and you must set things aright. It’s a tall order, I know, but we all have faith you can do it in this RPG action platformer. After all, you have your trusty sword and a can-do attitude!

In Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition, you are a small, shape changing hero in a 2D world. Long ago, a magician used some enchanted jewels to keep the chaos of 3D from unleashing despair. Now, however, 3D is starting to break into your world.

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: Aztech Forgotten Gods (Nintendo Switch)

When first checking out Aztech Forgotten Gods, I was pleased to see the theme centered on a version of the Aztec empire which didn’t involve certain foreigners coming in and wrecking up the joint. I’m sorry to say, however, that this review is not a happy one.

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.

Review: Guild of Ascension (Nintendo Switch)

Welcome to the Tower, brave adventurer. It’s your happy task to ascend the Tower and claim all the rewards which await you. Guild of Ascension combines turn-based RPG and rogue-lite elements with (if we’re being completely honest) a lightweight story element.

Review: Tunnel of Doom (Nintendo Switch)

Tunnel of Doom is a rogue-lite, tower defense mash-up. And while it is a good combination of the two genres, it doesn’t seem to be as well executed as it could have been.

Review: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cloud Version (Nintendo Switch)

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy comes with good design elements, a cool soundtrack, and very good dialogue and voice acting. The Switch’s cloud version, however, comes with connection issues I can’t just overlook.

Review: Monomals (Nintendo Switch)

Welcome to Monomals, a game in which you are a DJ going fishing for exotic critters you can use to make your music. I know it sounds a bit odd, but it’s a video game, so let’s go with it.

Review: Knights & Guns (Nintendo Switch)

Hail and well met, good sir-knight. Put on your plate armor, don your helmet, and pick up your….gun? Well, that’s a bit different. Knights & Guns is a 2D action game where you run back and forth shooting the invading monsters, and you can only shoot straight up.

Review: King’s Bounty II (Nintendo Switch)

Good news—the prince has ordered your release from Crucis Prison. Bad news—you have to travel across a frozen land to go see him…immediately. Bundle up, buttercup; it’s going to be a chilly ride through this turn-based strategy RPG.

Review: Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle (Nintendo Switch)

Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is a turn-based card strategy game. A really well-done card battle game. You get the usual mechanics, but how Shadowverse goes about utilizing them is quite clever.

Review: Unavowed (Nintendo Switch)

Unavowed is a bit dark and includes some crude imagery and language, and there are a lot of “shades of gray” versus obvious black and white / good versus evil interactions. Is it worth finding your way through this retro adventure/puzzle game from Wadjet Eye?

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.
