Player movement is constrained to opposite colorsWith 50 unique maps, hundreds of unlockable items, AI bots and online ranked multiplayer, this is the definitive version of INVERSUS. The playfield looks simple at first glance, but once the action begins, complexity unfolds at a rapid pace. Player movement is constrained to opposite colors of a black and white grid. My walls are your paths and your walls are my paths. Each shot flips tile colors in an attempt to block, trap and close in on the enemy. Up to four players can compete in VERSUS mode and up to two players can cooperate in ARCADE mode. Play with friends on the couch, online, or both at once. Hone your skills against the computer and then head online to enter the global ranks. [Nintendo] Expand

    An interesting concept that has been executed very successfully makes INVERSUS Deluxe a solid purchase option for Nintendo Switch owners. The adaptable arenas create fun, action packed matches and it can be difficult to put down at times. A surprisingly challenging difficulty level in the game’s Arcade mode could possibly put off some players but will likely attract more, feeding their need to fight for the highest score possible. Enjoyed best with friends, but thankfully also a worthy experience to play through alone, INVERSUS Deluxe could well be your next go-to party game.

    INVERSUS Deluxe provides a nice multiplayer and a decent single player experience on the Switch, making great use of the Joycons. Though the simple nature of the game is easy to learn, there really is not a lot to it, so don't except a very deep or rich experience. But if you've got a hankering for a solid twin-stick shooter (that you can play with your friends) on-the-go, you can't go wrong.

    INVERSUS Deluxe is a fun game that is quick to get into and provides a good multiplayer experience. It might not be as rewarding as one could wish but overall, the game offers a series of options that make it fun enough to be worth spending several hours with, especially on local multiplayer and with several friends thrown in the mix.

    Simplistic and fun, Inversus Deluxe is definitely worth checking out, it's easy to learn and hard to master gameplay will keep you hooked as you go back to better your own or your friends' high scores. Multiplayer is also a riot, especially in a 2v2 environment.

    Inversus DELUXE is at its best when playing with others, but very quickly turns to its worst when there aren't any others playing it. While conceptually excellent and executed wonderfully, it relies too heavily on a user base that just doesn't exist. There's a good game in Inversus, and the potential to expand upon the core concepts is gigantic but, as it stands, it falls just short of delivering a solid enough experience to keep playing.

It makes aInversus Deluxe is a fantastic twin-stick shooter that plays to the Switch's strength of portability and detachable controllers. It makes a nice, quick 2 player game, and I can usually find somebody online within a minute. The concept is so simple, yet so alluring. If there's any real issue, maybe some of the interchangeable color palates aren't good for playing, and the amount of people online is underwhelming, but that hardly mars what might be the best 15 dollars I spend on a switch game.
