We have multiple reviews of Swords & Soldiers, all positive, including Chuck Jose’s take on the WiiWare release in 2009 and Zach Miller’s equally charmed screed on the HD release on Wii U in 2014. I don’t have much more to add that Chuck and Zach haven’t already covered aside from I think Swords & Soldiers shows its age more. The spirit of it is wonderful, but if you want to check the series out, I’d more recommend you wait for the sequel to come out in March.

Swords and Soldiers live up to being a very funny RTS game. It also does a great job of keeping the game fresh. Players who have not played the game certainly should give this game a try. If you experienced it on the 3DS, do yourself a favor and give it another try. Swords and Soldiers was a very good experience and well worth your time.

As surprise release games go, Swords & Soldiers’ age – and the sheer number of platforms it’s appeared on – might lead you to sleep on it. But despite having appeared on plenty of Nintendo consoles already, Two Tribes’ comical mix of resource management and real-time strategy is just as fun, silly and rewarding as it was back in 2009. Its looks are a little blurry in places, but the simplicity of its concept (and the short nature of its matches) make it a perfect fit for handheld play.

While it's mostly a by-the-numbers tower defence game, and a dated one at that, it's also surprisingly enjoyable. The comedic tone and writing, while not laugh-out-loud funny, has some pretty amusing moments. It's just a little too short, but fans of this one can look forward to the sequel reaching Switch soon.

Among the mobile games available on Switch, Swords & Soldiers stands out as an enjoyable strategy game that, despite its simplicity, works well as a bite-sized handheld experience.

Com uma grande tradição nas plataformas Nintendo, Swords and Soldiers regressa à eShop acompanhado da fórmula de sucesso que o caracterizou em 2009 e traz conteúdo e um modo multijogador pensado em exclusivo para a Nintendo Switch. Com características mais apetecíveis em modo portátil, representa uma proposta interessante para curtos períodos de jogo, divertida e com uma componente estratégica surpreendente para um jogo desta natureza.
