Retro City Rampage DX Review

The Nintendo Switch is affectionately referred to as the “indie machine”. Vblank Entertainment’s Retro City Rampage DX is a example of an excellent indie game on the Switch. While the core game has been updated (hence “DX” in the title) and ported to many platforms already, it is still a standout title on the Switch. It doesn’t do anything new or different than its other console counterparts, but its portability and home console duality lend the game to be played literally everywhere – and this is a game you want to play everywhere you can. Retro City Rampage DX is an homage to 80s games, movies, and music that doesn’t rely purely on its parody to be funny and interesting, it also has solid gameplay and mechanics to back it all up.

Ironcast Review

Ironcast has previously released onto other platforms from developer Dreadbit and publisher Ripstone, but now it is the game’s turn on the Nintendo Switch. This game is a perfect fit for this handheld console, as it looks and runs beautifully all the same compared to its other console counterparts. The best addition to the game is that no controllers are required, as you can play the game entirely with the Switch’s touchscreen. Now, Ironcast is equal parts a match-3 as it is a strategy game, and it’s a gem all its own to be more than a clone. Ironcast is difficult, but is a challenge worth undertaking.

Overcooked Special Edition Review

Overcooked Special Edition is truly special for the Nintendo Switch, as it is not only the game, but all the DLC that’s been released thus far. Now, I had missed out on the Overcooked sensation late last year, and this was the first time I got to see what it was about. This is a game that you can’t understand in screenshots, or even some videos. This is a game that you will understand its utter chaos by playing either by yourself or trying to coordinate with friends and family.

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas (Switch) Review

It’s not hard to draw comparisons between Oceanhorn and a certain iconic Nintendo Franchise. So it’s only fitting that the game eventually made it’s way to Nintendo’s newest platform, the Switch. Looking at screenshots, it’s easy to see that the developers were inspired by Nintendo’s tunic wearing hero. The similarities are undeniable; the hero’s appearance, the game’s narrative, and overall design choices scream The Legend of Zelda. I’m not saying that’s at all a bad thing though as Oceanhorn takes the formula and gives it their own touch. Whether it’s any fun is a whole other issue.
