    Relaxing, pretty, colourful and satisfying. Zen Bound 2 ticks all the necessary boxes as a puzzle game with motion controls, though you might actually want to wait for a sale on this one.

    Bloons TD 6 follows the tower defence template pretty much to the letter, but there's nothing here for people sick of the genre.

    Ark: Survival Evolved has some nice ideas, and it works surprisingly well on mobile, but it's still shackled by the problems of the genre.

    There's nothing broken about Silverfish DX, it's just that once you've got to the point where you want, no need, something more, it doesn't deliver. You'll find some fast arcade fun here, but in the end it wears out its welcome a little too quickly to recommend it in the most wholehearted terms.

    There's some sharp difficulty here, but it's not the sort of thing that's going to make you smash your phone. It's going to push you on deeper, and make you want to find out more. Feist isn't just another game that looks like a bunch of others, it's its own thing, full of wit and whimsy, horror and hardships. And you should do yourself a favour and pick it up right now.

    There are some nice ideas here, but in the end there just isn't enough peril.

    Fortnite is a free game that is already one of the Switch's best shooters. No reason not to jump in and play.

    Brakes are for Losers has some nice ideas, but the package is one that's going to leave you frustrated more often than not.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Paladins is a worthy addition to the Switch, but it feels a bit soulless and shallow despite its breadth of heroes.

    Fallout Shelter on Switch is the same great game it's always been, but it's unclear why you'd jump from mobile to this version.

    A clunky, frustratingly limited arcade football experience that doesn't live up to the classic football games it clearly wants to emulate.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is an absolutely essential purchase for any fan of the classic 2D games.

    A rich and engaging midcore RPG experience that drips with quality from every pore.

    It's almost instantly forgettable, but Pokemon Quest is a charming and enjoyable way to fill the time before the bigger games land.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tidy, well constructed room escape puzzler that's perhaps a little too slight for its own good.
    • 93 Metascore

    Pocket-Run Pool is a brilliantly judged single-player reimagining of everyone's favourite pub game.

    At the end of the day, if you've not played Ikaruga before and you love a good shooter, you'd be doing yourself a disservice missing out on its latest release.

    Dragon Ball Legends might be one of the best licensed anime games on mobile, as well as one of the best looking. One of the better anime time wasters on mobile.

    A wonderful, engaging puzzler, that deserves to be played by as many people as possible.

    No matter how hard you try, it's pretty damn difficult to dislike Deploy and Destroy, especially if you're a fan of shooting things.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A surprisingly tough spatial puzzler that's just a little too awkward and unintuitive for its own good.
    • 79 Metascore

    Little Nightmares Complete Edition is a wonderfully atmospheric horror game which lacks challenge in its puzzles.
    • 75 Metascore

    A thematically strong card-based building game that's an awful lot of fun.

    The story is fascinating, and the gameplay is great but this one might not be to everyone's taste.

    It might not be the most interesting game in the world, but Disney Heroes: Battle Mode is still pretty impressive.

    A bright and entertaining maths game that's all for a good cause.

    Despite a few missteps, there's enough that Homo Machina gets right that you're going to love the time you spend with it.

    Despite some graphical hitches, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition really is the best way to play the game.

    There are some nice ideas in Perfect Angle, but in the end they don't add up to an interesting enough experience.

    Super Doggo Snack Time offers a cute twist on the usual tapping game, though the high difficulty curve will either frustrate or entice you.
