    The Nintendo Switch version of Clock Simulator isn't the definitive version of the game. It's interesting to have Clock Simulator on Switch and it certainly makes sense there but the core experience is just as gratifying (and cheaper) on PC or mobile. Clock Simulator isn't a deep game but for a budget price and the experience it can create it's worth a shot. It's just best to not expect to spend too much time on it.

    You can get these two great existential crises in one package of fourteen minigames for just 6 AUD on the Nintendo Switch eShop. What a bargain!

    The thing is, when the gameplay only consists of repeated, evenly-timed button presses, the game quickly grows old, even with as many game modes as Clock Simulator. As a result, I found myself bored after about thirty minutes. I will say, though, that the game did remarkably well to hold my attention for thirty minutes with only the single gameplay element. Unfortunately, once my interest waned, it never returned. However, the game is cheap, and I’d say it’s worth the buy if you’re looking for a silly way to kill half an hour, especially with friends.

    Clock simulator really is a cluster of mini-games that set players against the clock. This is an interesting idea that doesn't quite go far enough meaning that the bell tolls far too quickly for this unusual indie game.

    Clock Simulator is a somewhat challenging but often repetitive rhythm game that lacks the necessary motivation to keep it interesting for long. The addition of multiplayer also fails to give it the extra time it needs.

If you would like to spend a portion of your afternoon having an existential crisis, wondering if this game is cursed, summoning spirits of time, then by all means. Warning: this may also be a piece of vegan propaganda (save the pigs, their time is running out). Expand
