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.

Sine Mora EX Review

Replaying a game you haven’t played in five years lets you see a lot of things you missed the first time. This brings the classic adage, “what’s old is new again” to light. Sine Mora returns thanks to new publisher THQ Nordic, in the form of Sine Mora EX. Sine Mora EX brings the somber story and visually striking game back to PC, and introduces the game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners.
