‘Sine Mora EX’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

First released in 2012 on the previous generation of consoles, Sine Mora EX is a beautiful, cinematic and modern bullet hell shoot-em-up that channels classic genre staples from 1942 to Ikaruga. I tend to find this kind of recent-release-remake fairly contrived due to a lack of new features but, obviously, this iteration of Sine Mora […]

‘Slime-san’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

This amorphous oddity was released on Steam in April, and now it’s squirmed onto Nintendo Switch. A fairly playable mashup of Super Meat Boy, Downwell and Life of Pixel (with a hint of Shovel Knight), Slime-san is a devilish retro-modern platformer with an old school aesthetic, new school flaws, and a predictably insane difficulty crest.

‘Splatoon 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

It’s only been a couple of years since Splatoon washed up on Wii U and became an instant cult hit. A very, very Nintendo take on the arena shooter, it didn’t involve regular “killing”. Rather, the player controlled an Inkling: a humanoid creature with an arsenal of superpowered paintball weapons. The paint could destroy NPCs […]

‘Arms’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Nearly four months after the launch of Switch, Nintendo’s system gets its first major first-party exclusive (let’s ignore 1-2 Switch) – and it’s a cracker. A cartoon one-on-one (or two-on-two) fighting game with stretchy limbs, bulging eyes, mad music and gibberish voices, it’s as colourful, accessible and unputdownable as anything the Kyoto gaming gods have […]

Let’s be honest. When Nintendo announced the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it was met with a less than stellar response. After all, technially this “new” Nintendo Switch game is anything but new… Instead the Switch iteration is a port of the existing Wii U game, with a few new bells and whistles and […]

In fact, we rely upon them. We run our lives through them: Calendars, diaries, […]
