About Trevor Gould

Even though I was first introduced to video games with the Atari 2600 (I feel old) it was Nintendo that turned me into a lifelong fan. From the magical NES era when Nintendo was the face of gaming, through today with the 3DS, Switch (and everything in between) Nintendo’s always entertained me with their innovative, and just plain fun games! Writing for Pure Nintendo has allowed me to combine a fondness for journalism with my love of gaming. I’ve especially enjoyed building working relationships with smaller and independent developers and studios.

Review: Papertris (Nintendo Switch)

With a name like Papertris, you might expect a paper-themed puzzler in the Tetris mold. In reality, Papertris reminds me more of Columns’ color-matching gameplay. Or maybe it’s similar to …

Review: Papetura (Nintendo Switch)

Papetura, an amalgamation of the two lead critters’ names, is better than its peculiar branding would suggest. Part puzzle platformer, part graphic adventure, wrapped in cinematic flair, it left me …

Review: Super Kiwi 64 (Nintendo Switch)

“3D-Platformer and Collect-a-Thon” games aren’t actually all that abundant on Switch, making Super Kiwi 64 a welcome addition. Teased at the end of Beeny, this forgoes that game’s SNES aesthetic …

Review: Beeny (Nintendo Switch)

Beeny is a sitcom-length 2D platformer, but one that’s only 99 cents. At that budget price, there’s nothing to lose by grabbing it. It’s pretty good for what it is. …
