    While I’ll eventually grow bored with this title, it hasn’t happened yet, even with 50-plus hours combined between my wife and I playing. I still have perks to unlock and properties to fix and sell. House Flipper is much better than expected and will keep you busy for a long while, even longer once the game is updated.

    Overall House Flipper is a great game to kill time with, and also the perfect game if you find that you need to be able to shut your brain off and just do something for a little while. It’s not perfect and it is definitely not for everybody, especially if you’re actually in the market for something more exciting, but those who enjoy sitting down to slam out a mundane task should strongly consider this game on Switch. While some of the decisions they made in terms of controls were a bit strange to me, I eventually got used to them and found myself enjoying the process just as much as I did on PC. So get in there and paint those rooms the ugliest colors you can find, and put down a chair for good measure, House Flipper is the place to be if you’re just looking to relax.

    House Flipper is a simulation game where you purchase and do up houses to sell for profit to do it all over again. It is mindless and monotonous, but there is catharsis in cleaning things up and returning them to some semblance of order.

    House Flipper is emblematic of why every game doesn’t need to be on Switch. Its nauseating performance, terrible controls, and laggy menus combine to make an overall awful experience. The game itself, while relaxing at times, seems to want to waste your time in any way it possibly can.

    I’ve had a lot of fun with this game, simply perfect for spending free time! The performance didn’t bother me much.

    The graphics look good on a nintendo switch. Controls need time to get used, after a few hours the controls are fully functional.
    Nice port

The PC version of House Flipper is aFor a little context on why I gave this game such a low score, I'd like to talk about the PC version. The PC version of House Flipper is a brilliant game and a heck of a lot of fun, but not very well optimised. It isn't the most graphically impressive of games, yet it runs like a clogged toilet on anything that isn't a gaming PC. I have two devices that can run Skyrim with no problems, and they can't run House Flipper on the lowest graphics settings for love nor money.

    This issue is also present here in the Switch version. The controls sometimes feel really sluggish, as does the framerate, and there's just enough input lag to be noticeable. I also swear it's making my Switch run hotter than any other game I own - and this is all in spite of the fact that the graphics are cranked down massively compared to the PC version and really do not look very good at all. The Switch is capable of running better-looking games at higher framerates, so I surmise this game may just be a port of the PC version, and not a very good one at that. Not to mention that as of the launch day, it appears to not have any of the DLC or many of the items that were subsequently added to the PC version.

    Still, if you can get past all that it's still the House Flipper I know and love. Get this version only if you don't have a PC that can run it decently, otherwise it's not worth your money.
