It's not a bad game, but the hard to ignore mobile origins - and seeing what else is available and what the Switch can do - makes King Oddball a fun little distraction and nothing more. It's worth picking up if you have a yearning for a quick, simple palate cleanser, and whether you've previously become addicted to the projectile flinging / destruction puzzle genre, avian or not, there is nothing here that will change your mind either way.
King Oddball, for all it has to offer, is a strange, quirky, yet surprisingly neat budget title for the Switch. While it will take some time to fully master, this physics-based puzzle title has quite a bit to enjoy with its many levels with varying degrees of challenge and extra modes. Although, while still a mobile title with simple one-button mechanic that one may easily compare to other popular entries, King Oddball has enough to grab your interest in short bursts. It’s simply a matter of how interested King Oddball can keep you, even if physics are against you all the time.
King Oddball readily entertains with its quirky demeanour, putting an entirely unexpected body part to work to unleash wanton destruction upon the world. It may have riffed on someone else’s concocted formula (and with less breadth at that) but, especially for those longing for an alternative to Angry Birds on Nintendo Switch, it’s hard not to come to appreciate the game’s warped nature.
