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: Micetopia (Nintendo Switch)

Despite a favorable first impression, Micetopia can’t go the distance. Attractive pixel art visuals don’t compensate for the highly repetitive gameplay.

The plot starts with a village elder informing you …

Review: The Language Of Love (Nintendo Switch)

The Language of Love is a clichéd visual novel that proves mostly annoying.

Review: REPLICA (Nintendo Switch)

An awfully short adventure title, REPLICA tries to promote replay through its various endings. But after a few, I had seen enough to be satisfied. The game is modestly priced …

Review: Maze (Nintendo Switch)

Maze promises a “fantasy adventure” but fails to deliver on it. Instead, we have a release with very little meat on its bones. It’s a shame.

An oldie (from 2011) but a goodie, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World entertains. It’s not a very lengthy point-and-click adventure, but it feels fully realized all the same. Genre …
