    Flip Wars is a fun little game for the Switch, that is ideal to play with some friends on the couch. The gameplay, though simple, is entertaining for all ages. Sadly the game lacks any single-player content. But it's low price makes up for a lot of it.

    Flip Wars is a multiplayer game that win by playing it this way. Its great deficiency is in the lack of modes of games and alternatives for a single player. Even so, it can be a great option to keep in mind for family gatherings and with friends.

    Battle Sports Mekuru has the heart of a good multiplayer game, but the variety isn't there yet. With three simple stages and many incomplete modes, it is a really hard sell at the moment. My suggestion is to wait until after the game has gotten some updated. At that point, I am more than willing to give the game a second chance and see how the package stands. As of right now, I can only recommend Battle Sports Mekuru to those who play a lot in tabletop and TV modes with other people. It is where the game shined brightest for me.

    Pretty much no frills, but good fun with friends. [Issue#190, p.81]

    There are some titles that have high replay value despite their simplicity, but Flip Wars is not one of them, as this is nothing but a simple mini-game turned full game. In other words, while this is definitely cheaper, better save that pizza money for Splatoon 2… or pizza.

    Flip Wars isn't a bad game, it's a painfully mediocre one with an appalling lack of overall content. The Switch might be the perfect place for a small, simple multiplayer game, but Flip Wars doesn't offer anything new or different enough to justify itself.

    Sure the price is cheap and for a few minutes most might be entertained but the level of repetition, dull gameplay, and boring visuals do nothing to make players want to continue the Flip Wars, and it’s ultimately a failure in almost every sense. The game works and doesn’t seem to have any huge issues, but that’s about the best I can say.

    A fun little party game you will probably only play once or twice. Try it if it's on sale.

    It looks fun and the first few games are interesting and cool but you quickly realize that the game just isn't fun. I don't really know why, the game idea is fine. Flipping tiles by jumping on them to cover the most area is something that's been done in Mario party and that was fun but this just isn't.

    There are a big variety of maps and some game modes but every game feels the same and it doesn't always feel like the best player wins. The movement feels weird sometimes too, it's like you move slower up and down and faster sideways, don't know why that is.

    Get bomber man or astro bears instead.
