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.

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: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin (Nintendo Switch)

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin taught me some things. I learned about historical farming methods. I learned why people tend to sing while we work. Most importantly, however, I learned that some games are worth the wait, and that they still have the ability to surprise.

Review: Re:Turn – One Way Trip (Nintendo Switch)

If you learn nothing else from me, at least understand that you should never launch into the next phase of life with a camping trip amongst friends. As we see in Re:Turn – One Way Trip, you’re bound to end up with ghost trains, missing friends, deadly demons, and pixel graphics.

Review: Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World (Nintendo Switch)

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 …

Review: TENS! (Nintendo Switch)

Puzzle games aren’t for everyone, but very few games tap into that feeling of immediate elation the same way a good puzzler does. There’s something incredibly satisfying about starting a …

Review: Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut (Nintendo Switch)

Review: THE LAST BLADE: Beyond the Destiny (Nintendo Switch)

Review: Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)

If you didn’t play Pikmin 3 on the Wii U, it’s a must-play here. Pikmin 3 Deluxe is as cute, clever and challenging as any game available for the Switch. If you have already played it, however, there’s only one real reason to double-dip. Thankfully, it’s a pretty solid reason.
