Tactical Mind 2 – Switch review

Tactical Mind 2 picks up where the first game left off, using taxing puzzles to stretch your mind and avoid defeat. It borrows a lot from chess with the grand aim to take the King, or in this case a crystal. It also borrows a lot from chequers as you can upgrade your pawns to make them more powerful. If you enjoy turn based strategy games you will definitely find something here. Read More

Super Wiloo Demake – Switch

We recently featured Freedom Planet and discussed how clones of older games can surpass their inspiration. Super Wiloo Demake, from Ratakaila Games, is a straight Super Mario Bros. 3 clone that just about keeps up, let alone, surpasses the source material. Before you get the impression this is a bad title, read on, it is actually quite charming. It feels very simplistic but is aimed at younger gamers, so we bare that in mind for this Switch review.

Defenders of Ekron – Switch

Usually when a developer attempts to blend two genres together it results in something brilliant, groundbreaking or simply an unplayable mess. We are glad to announce that Defenders of Ekron is the former. You may not feel it is groundbreaking but it is certainly excellent. Blending 2D shoot-em-up with RPG elements and story has paid off. Retro Faith dives into this interesting mashup of genres on the Switch. Read More

Are you up to the challenge of taking down a powerful overlord and save the earth! Read More

Ultimate Racing 2D – Switch

Back in the 90’s top down racers were a big thing. You could not flick through any magazine without seeing a review or feature of one. Anything from the excellent Micro Machine series to Super Off Road the choice was extensive. Netherlands based studio Applimazing have taken everything great about these 2D pixel racers and turbo driven a showering of modern polish. We ramp up the horse power and rev the engine for the Switch review of Ultimate Racing 2D. Read More

Aborigenus – Switch

Aborigenus is described by publisher Drageus as ‘a small adventure platformer with RPG-elements in a primal world.’ They were not kidding when they said small. You can complete Aborigenus in about 20 minutes. There are a handful of levels for you to tackle all rounded off with a last boss fight. You should not be put off though as this little adventure is rather charming. As they say, great things come in small packages. Read More
