Depending on your skill and luck, Ironcast can be a fun 10 hour or so romp, fraught with many failures but likely numerous last-second victories and absolute dominations. The mixture of turn-based strategy and match-three puzzling is novel and for the most part, works extremely well in the rogue-like permadeath structure.
The system’s portability is also a great fit for the game, as I could easily knock out one or two missions while on the go. It reminded me of puzzle games from the heyday of Xbox Live Arcade such as Peggle and Puzzle Quest, and makes me hopeful that the Nintendo Switch will be a similarly great platform for smaller, outside the box indie games such as Ironcast.
Ironcast is not for the casual gamer. Time, effort and patience is needed to get the items you need and to defeat the more difficult enemies. However replayability is high and the game’s hand drawn graphics look great on the Nintendo Switch. Check it out if you’re a fan of turn based strategy games.
