Sep 30, 2020Over the Alps is more for those who enjoy reading and watching a story unfold than those seeking good mystery gameplay. Go in with that in mind, and its fun interface, quality writing, and unique art will carry you through.
Sep 15, 2020If you're interested in a lighthearted adventure you will find something to enjoy in Over the Alps. During my review, I often opened Google Maps as I trudged through the territory, snapping screenshots of each location along the way. Even though with the two stories currently available offering roughly 4-6 hours of combined gameplay and one more story on its way (currently without a release date) as a free update, there’s still better value to be found on the eShop. You could easily breeze through this game if you're a quick reader. And with so much to play these days on Switch, I'll be hard pressed to return.
Nov 11, 2020Over The Alps is a game with a lovely looking presentation and a concept that's original and interesting. If those two elements raise the game's threshold, it's also not any less true that the plot development and the way the gameplay flows is hardly passionate or exciting. For a game based on espionage, the plot choices are strangely inconsequential and this makes players feel like their actions have little impact on what's happening, which ends up standing as an impediment to the ambitions of Over The Alps.
