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: 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.

Review: Ramp Car Jumping (Nintendo Switch)

The name of this game leaves nothing to the imagination; it’s cars on ramps, jumping. Ramp Car Jumping really is a very basic game that’s fraught with issues, but it holds a glimmer of hope for our gaming friends who want to have a little fun being silly.

Review: Tennis World Tour 2 (Nintendo Switch)

Big Ant Studios brings big tennis to the Switch. And by big, I mean you get to use avatars of big names like Federer, Nadal, and a few dozen others. You also get to make your own avatar so you can join the game (and get beaten badly by the pros). After that, it gets a little less inspiring.

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: 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.
