Etherborn

Switch
8.00
Kirstie SummersJul 22, 2019
Etherborn is certainly a unique approach to puzzle games, with a beautiful design and a surprisingly profound story stitching it all together. It’s fairly slow paced and can be frustrating, but that just means it feels much more rewarding with each milestone you reach.

Dyna Bomb

Switch
5.00
Trevor GouldJul 16, 2019
As it is, the levels in Dyna Bomb, while not bad, aren’t fun or interesting enough to sustain repetitive trial-and-error gameplay. So, this is an average Switch game at present, one that could be quite good if it had a bit more polish. Perhaps a welcomed patch will arrive, with options that push this game’s mobile origins further to the backside. Meanwhile, despite a number of positives, I’d wait for a sale if the game strikes your fancy, as it doesn’t leave much of a lasting impression right now.

Senran Kagura Peach Ball

Switch
3.00
Bill StitelerJul 16, 2019
Look, I’m no prude. I loves me some sleaze, provided it’s well-made sleaze. But Senran Kagura Peach Ball fails on every conceivable level. The characters are indistinguishable, the story feels like what I imagine licking a light socket must do to your brain, and the supposedly erotic moments are all based around hitting someone with a pinball. On top of that, the pinball game isn’t much fun to play.

Professor Lupo and his Horrible Pets

Switch

Kirstie SummersJul 15, 2019
Professor Lupo and His Horrible Game has a lot of creativity and humour, but it is let down by its clunky controls.

Robot Squad Simulator

Switch
5.00
David TempleJul 14, 2019
Robot Squad Simulator has some potential, but it feels a bit flat for a release which goes for about $15. It is interesting to pilot some ROVs, and it touches the whole hero-of-the-day theme, but there are some real issues that prevent fun gameplay. You can upgrade your bots a bit and there is the whole get-better-and-progress-through-levels thing, but it needs some refinement before I'd recommend it.

Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator

Switch
9.00
Seth CanoJul 11, 2019
Personally, I’ve always enjoyed a nice dialogue choice-based storytelling game, on the road! Another thing worth mentioning is: Many can find enjoyment in Dream Daddy, no matter the sexuality you possess — though depending on it, one might enjoy such more. Hence my scoring, as a genre enthusiast. I haven’t played a meaningful dialogue selection game in awhile, so this was a refreshing change in pace.

Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet

Switch
9.00
Kirstie SummersJul 11, 2019
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet is the kind of charming and hilarious adventure game that only happens when real love goes into its creation. Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet is a wonderful game. It takes you on a fantastic pirate adventure and will genuinely appeal to everyone in the family.

Warlock's Tower

Switch
9.00
Rachel PoliJul 11, 2019
Warlock’s Tower is a fun puzzle game that’s challenging, but not hard enough to rage quit. As a whole, the game is charming and it’s fun alone, with a friend, or on the go.

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love

Switch
6.50
Seth CanoJul 10, 2019
Overall, it’s another point in click game, with unique puzzles. It lacks anything too special, though, making it hard to recommend for those non-enthusiastic about the genre. If you are a puzzle game fan, and can’t seem to find another alternative, this one is definitely worth a look. That being said, if you aren’t a puzzle game fan, or already have your fill of puzzling action, this game is not for you.

Super Mario Maker 2

Switch
7.50
Trevor GouldJul 09, 2019
I expected Super Mario Maker 2 to be an outstanding sequel but instead, it’s simply good. It takes steps forward and back in near equal measure, having significant post-launch shortcomings that go beyond mere nitpicking. Namely, the inferior online implementation at present, especially the, at times, borderline-unplayable online multiplayer. I certainly don’t expect perfect, but I also don’t expect a selling point this flawed from the Big N.

Neon Junctions

Switch
6.00
Dawson HeltonJul 09, 2019
Neon Junctions is a simple puzzle game that doesn’t last very long, but is a great way to spend an afternoon if you’re looking for something to beat in a sitting. Unfortunately though the puzzles don’t get challenging until the last few stages, which left a feeling for more.

Vectronom

Switch
9.00
Jaime CarrilloJul 08, 2019
Can a game be tense and relaxing at the same time? Vectronom rides this line pretty well, offering a puzzle game that is as gorgeous as it is challenging. When played with headphones, it's as immersive as any puzzle game has ever been.

Project Nimbus: Complete Edition

Switch
8.00
Rachel PoliJul 08, 2019
Overall, Project Nimbus: Complete Edition is a solid game. The graphics and music are spot-on, the controls are responsive, and there’s plenty of action to keep you busy for a while. While there are a lot of mechs to choose from, other than general upgrades there’s no customization. However, I feel like those cosmetics can be done without in this game. After all, there’s so much more happening on screen that you won’t pay attention to how pretty your robot is.

A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher

Switch
2.00
Seth CanoJul 08, 2019
Despite its cheap price tag of US$5.OO, it remains hard to recommend due to its non-intuitive nature without a tutorial. I’d highly suggest that AskAnEnemyStudios considers adding a tutorial section if they want more people to take this game on Switch seriously. Personally, I don’t see the game being worth anyone’s hard-earned cash, especially for parents looking for a game to pick up for their child.

Golem Gates

Switch
8.50
Seth CanoJul 05, 2019
Overall, Golem Gates, is a unique take on the card-playing genre and welcome addition to the Switch library. Nonetheless, it has some minor flaws, even if it remains functionally intact. Either Way, Golem Gates is a must try for anyone looking for a strategy game on Switch and/or a fun multiplayer option! I can definitely see this game being something I come back to during airport gameplay sessions, or even just when I have a bunch of time to kill.

GIGA WRECKER ALT.

Switch
7.50
Kirk HinerJul 04, 2019
Giga Wrecker Alt is a pretty cool game. It has some issues and likely won’t compel all players to keep going, but the puzzles are good, and getting to throw a ton of junk to smash a robot is always fun. The game looks good, sounds good, and offers plenty of play time, so get in there and wreck it.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Switch
5.00
Kirk HinerJul 04, 2019
So, what we’ve got in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a well-designed game that’s poorly developed. A championship-caliber team that needs another few months (or perhaps another year) of training camp. 505 Games has promised to fix the glaring problems, but I can’t review a game based on promises. There’s still some fun to be had here, but it shouldn’t have been released in its current state. Wait for the updates. If they don’t come, wait for a sale…and stay away from the bookshelves.

My Friend Pedro

Switch
9.50
Seth CanoJul 03, 2019
Altogether, My Friend Pedro is a speedrunner's paradise, offering a charming story with good gunplay for its price tag. But if you are looking for pure replay value you won't find that here (unless you are a speedrunner).

We. The Revolution

Switch
8.00
Kirstie SummersJun 30, 2019
We. the Revolution is the kind of game that you need to concentrate on, in a way that is captivating and graphic.

Forest Home

Switch
7.00
Kirk HinerJun 28, 2019
Forest Home is a pleasant puzzler with cute animals that will charm and challenge children until it gets too big for them. It takes a long while to get interesting for older gamers, but at least the woodland characters don't get annoying along the way. The sheer volume of puzzles explains the asking price, but it's unlikely players in any age group are going to finish them all. Maybe that's the point; let the whole family take their turns on the same account and, after a while, all of the forest creatures will finally find their home.

Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz

Switch
6.00
Jennifer SheffieldJun 28, 2019
While the mystery in “Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz” is entertaining, the rhythm felt off with multiple lulls and heavy dialogue that hampered the experience of the story overall.

GoFishing 3D

Switch
2.00
Trevor GouldJun 26, 2019
Which isn’t to say there’s anything inherently wrong with GoFishing 3D’s simple approach… but that only works when the game is actually good. The devs need to look at the level of quality or lack thereof. Just because a game can coast on mobile doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for the Switch. GoFishing 3D is just too poor on so many levels. Not to mention it is absurdly priced, making it only worthwhile as a catch and release game to those wanting an overpriced chuckle.

Warlocks 2: God Slayers

Switch
9.00
Seth CanoJun 26, 2019
Overall, Warlocks 2: God Slayers is not perfect, but it definitely plays like it. With extensive replay incentive, charming quirks, in-depth customization, and satisfying combat, it is hard not to recommend this title. It is a fun metroidvania package, and one worth a try even if the genre isn’t your favorite and/or hasn’t stood out.

War Tech Fighters

Switch
8.00
Heath Shusterman-ZimmermanJun 26, 2019
I would say War Tech Fighters does a fairly good job of living up to the claim of combining anime with blockbusters. The action is fairly steady throughout the game. The ability to upgrade and customize your War Tech is tons of fun. Aside from the load times, everything about this game says yes. If you’re looking for a ton of action, War Tech Fighters is certainly a game you should try.

My Big Sister

Switch
7.00
Heath Shusterman-ZimmermanJun 25, 2019
In the end, My Big Sister had a story that stands out from the crowd. With multiple outcomes, it certainly does hold the value of it’s asking price of $5.99. Players looking for a more traditional RPG experience may want to steer away. If, however, you’re seeking a good puzzler RPG with a decent sense of humor that helps lighten some dark themes, then My Big Sister is something to check out.
