    Shadow Blade: Reload mixes an appealing story with a solid level design and great characters and boss fights, and the result is a wonderful 2D action platformer. Different difficulty levels and challenges section also increase the replay values. Add Nintendo Switch's portable capabilities to all this and you have a game that you can enjoy almost anywhere.

    A platform game that surprises with good details. Its combat style is simple and well structured, with a fixed and simple plot. Although the plot is very short, its gameplay is excellent.

    Shadow Blade: Reload is not a terrible game by any means, but it doesn’t do anything to make it worth playing over others in the genre.

    The gap in quality between mobile games and console/PC releases is almost non-existent now, as is proved by the likes of Shadow Blade: Reload. As such it fits the portable nature of Nintendo Switch like a glove, with its short-yet-challenging levels offering a platforming experience that’s ideal for both short bursts of play and longer speedrunning sessions. The sound design helps create a rhythm to your progression through each level, and there’s plenty of secrets to find in each level, but the absence of the level editor included in the PC/PS4 port makes this version feel a little hollow by comparison.
