If you are looking for another run ‘n gun boss rush game for Nintendo Switch, Mechstermination Force is definitely a great option and cements Hörberg Productions as one of the most consistently great Nindie developers. As the indie scene on Nintendo Switch gets more and more crowded, it is important to know which titles are worth your time. If you enjoyed some of the other titles I compared Mechstermination Force to in the review, this new Switch exclusive is definitely worth checking out.
If your run and gun action requires item pick-ups and long stages then you, unfortunately, won’t be seeing that action here. Likewise for if you like your games to be light on the challenge side. However, if you are here looking for some very tight and well-designed white-knuckle boss shootouts that unfold over colorful scenery and sweet tunes, then Mechstermination Force is absolutely the game for you. Before getting this review code, this title was surprisingly unknown to me but I’ve come away from it feeling like it may be one of my favorite games on the Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t try to be overly ambitious but, instead, takes one a core concept and does one hell of a job with it. Seriously, get out there and mash some metal!
Overall, Mechstermination Force is a pretty good title for the Switch. I wish it had full levels like games had in the ’90s. It would feel like a much fuller game, and I think people would have a lot more fun. For the very low price of $11.99 USD, you can’t go wrong with the purchase of this game. Just be sure all you want to do is play against bosses. Other than that, have lots of fun with this game.
