Each venture into the world brings great danger to the messenger, thus a special invention of a mechanical bird was introduced. This brave creature takes your secret letters and deliver them to the furthest parts of the world. Will you help him in his tough job?

    Red Game Without a Great Name is a 2D puzzle arcade game where you control a mechanical bird carrying a secret message. Your goal is to deliver a letter to a recipients cage, actually to 60 of them. It wont be an easy task - you will have to face different traps along the way, including: barbed wire, windmill blades, spikes, and many others. Use the extraordinary power of teleportation to move your character through the level. Pick up power-ups to gain temporary abilities, like smashing walls, or invulnerability to damage. Collect gears to fully complete the game.

    While I’d recommend picking them up on iOS or something, they serve their purpose well.

    All said, for the price of admission, Red Game Without a Great Name has more to offer than its lacking title would imply. With the likely frustration factor as you get further in it seems mostly suited to playing in shorter bursts, the levels are generally very quick to either complete or fail at before it takes you right back into the action again. If you enjoy some challenge and undoubtedly some aggravation in your gaming, it’s not a bad budget title to check out.

    Red Game Without a Great Name is a decent mobile, arcade-style game that shows the versatility of the Switch's hardware. At a good price it's hard to criticise what it achieves, although it makes me wonder whether it is worth picking up on this console, as it probably runs better on your phone.

    There is no shortage of quality games to play - covering a wide range of genres, styles and just about any other criteria you could ask for - in the Switch eShop library. Red Game Without a Great Name ends up being disappointing, then, as you'll likely become frustrated with its occasionally inconsistent touch-based controls, along with its initially cool but repetitive mechanic and devilish level design. It attempts to hide its flaws behind some stylish yet derivative silhouette designs and some pretty cool jazz tunes. In the end, though, we have an average game with a bad name.

    Red Game Without a Great Name and Green Game: TimeSwapper are based on original ideas which don’t quite fully live up to their potential due to the control system and to some frustrating and repetitive moments. This is not to say they don’t have anything in their favour but their short lifespan is very much conditioned by these factors.

    It's a decent game with some challenge but it simply just doesn't offer much, feeling very repetitive and on occasion tedious i would say "RedIt's a decent game with some challenge but it simply just doesn't offer much, feeling very repetitive and on occasion tedious i would say "Red Game Without A Great Name" is fun in short bursts but definitely isn't something too special or awful to say if it's worth playing or not. I would only really recommend it if it's on sale for a very , very low price (like it is at the moment). Expand
