7.5 / 10.0 - Battleship
Aug 16, 2019

Battleship is guaranteed entertainment, and this version has several features elevating it beyond a simple board game. My only concern when it comes to replayability and value is the big glitch I encountered. So, even with things to unlock, I have some real pause concerning a solo recommendation. But it's great in zippy multiplayer, and you don't need to worry about gathering up small pegs afterward. This isn't a "best-case scenario" digital version, but no matter how you play it, it's undeniable that Battleship is still one of the quintessential games.

Overall, Clue: The Classic Mystery Game is a loveable take on the classic board game, and the best rendition of the murder mystery to-date, but suffers from some issues on the user-experience-end when looked at obliquely. Despite suffering from some issues of the user-experience end, Clue: The Classic Mystery Game is a lovable take on the classic board game, and one of the best renditions of the murder mystery to date. With new DLC, there's never been a better time to check it out on Nintendo Switch!

"The Church in the Darkness" takes the unsettling approach of realism. It's convincing as a story of a 1970s cult, and Freedom Town is a chilling look inside an isolated cult in the middle of the jungles of South America.

7 / 10.0 - Catch a Duck
Aug 14, 2019

Overall, Catch a Duck was a fun experience. Outwitting the larger predators by getting them caught in traps, or forcing the hunters to shoot each other, was enjoyable. The puzzles were challenging but not overly difficult, which is appreciated. Catch a Duck isn't anything too groundbreaking, but it's a fun title that is priced right and worth your time.

8 / 10.0 - Mini Trains
Aug 14, 2019

If model railroads hold any type of appeal to you, I think this is a very good puzzle game. It's one that stands out due to its theme, offering challenging fun, and packed with charm.

A shorter title, Bitlogic – A Cyberpunk Arcade Adventure will nonetheless likely appeal mainly to older gamers. It successfully mixes genres in a great setting with a good soundtrack. It effectively draws you in with unlimited ammunition, no time limit, and well-spaced checkpoints, to balance the atypical lack of jumping.

Wordsweeper by POWGI blends two popular games together in a way that offers puzzle fans something interesting and a bit different.

7.5 / 10.0 - Perchang
Aug 13, 2019

With its simple-to-grasp, challenging-to-master gameplay, Perchang held our attention through to the last of its 50 levels. It has a satisfying length, offering a fair amount of content without overstaying its welcome. Finishing a level with just a Bronze medal (or worse, a Pass) also prompts some replay. Perchang manages to stand out amongst the puzzle crowd on Nintendo Switch and I hope it's a sign of more Goldbergian puzzlers to come.

9 / 10.0 - PAWARUMI
Aug 12, 2019

Pawarumi is a good old-fashioned "shoot everything that moves" game which engages the player right from the start; I had an adrenaline rush going the whole time I was playing. At $14.99, it's a great addition to your Nintendo Switch catalog of games.

8 / 10.0 - Super Wiloo Demake
Aug 8, 2019

If you're looking for a cute platformer, I would say to take a look at Super Wiloo Demake. It's an easy introduction to the genre and has plenty of charm.

Garage Mechanic Simulator takes an uneventful premise and wraps it in an aesthetically uninteresting package with an embarrassing user interface. When it comes to fundamentals, console polish, and stand out features, this game is out of gas. It's so boring, I'm taking my business to another garage.

“Lucah: Born of a Dream” takes a unique animation style and tells a deeper story. However, if you suffer from any type of photo-sensitivity, this game should be avoided.

8 / 10.0 - Astro Bears
Aug 8, 2019

Sometimes it's hard to tell how much weight a game will carry once your done reviewing it and have moved on to new titles. In Astro Bears' case, the passage of time has proven my initial assessment wrong to some extent. The game has endured with me and my friends as a multiplayer attraction, and this new iteration is even better. It's dropped part of its original handle, but Astro Bears is more a party now than it's ever been.

6.5 / 10.0 - Graveyard Keeper
Aug 8, 2019

Graveyard Keeper's limitations and shortcomings come real close to outweighing the fun that can be had from playing a new game. When I got the game and read the premise, it sounded quirky and fun. As I played, it seemed more awkward and vexing.

5.5 / 10.0 - Bouncy Bullets
Aug 7, 2019

Bouncy Bullets really isn't a good game, but when I changed my style of play I did find a bit of fun. As a speedrunner I don't think it's satisfying trying to master these levels, but there are some possibilities beneath the surface for those willing to look. Yet, it still feels amateurish in ways. With subpar controls, I'd take a pass until a patch or sale, even with the low price.

So while some improvements definitely need to be made, Cybarian: The Time Traveling Warrior is a neat little game that will present you with a pretty good challenge for just $5.

Zombie Driver is everything you'd expect from a game called Zombie Driver – zombies and driving and guts splattered all over your screen. Its great.

7 / 10.0 - Terraria
Aug 6, 2019

That Terraria continues to receive ports to new systems is a testament to the game's playability. It continues to attract new fans while prompting long-time players to double- and even triple-dip. I don't think you need the Switch version if you're already set up on your other gaming system(s) of preference (especially at the current price). If the Switch is your only option, however, it's good enough for us to offer a recommendation. Let's just hope the developers manage to dig up and build couch co-op before night falls again.

Redneck Skeet Shooting blunders on such a fundamental level that, I'm surprised it even reached the eShop from mobile without more adjustments. A game with such low quality simply doesn't belong on the Nintendo Switch. Dull as dishwater, Redneck Skeet Shooting is, sadly, simply horrible.

10 / 10.0 - Dandy Dungeon
Aug 2, 2019

"Dandy Dungeon ~Legend of the Brave Yamada~" is hilarious and fun! Anyone in the family can pick this game up and have a good time. This game is best played by lovers of humor and RPGs.
