A young hero rises to fight for what's right. Armed with a splatter cannon, he launches an attack in order to save the Splashers and stand up to the dictator. His amazing paint cannon grants him color superpowers.

    While I do wish that there was a bit more of it, what’s here is phenomenal.

    In the world we live in now where more and more platformers are popping up all the time, it's so nice to play through such a refreshing (and dare I say fluid) adventure. Splasher's interesting paint cannon mechanic paired with the excellent level design will have you bouncing through each level feeling like a boss from start to finish. If you like a great challenge, charming animations and a new take on an old genre, look no further.

    All told Splasher is a smartly designed, tight platformer that offers up hours of replay value on top of the creative ideas it delivers. It takes the Super Meat Boy template and builds upon it in a notable way, creating an experience that feels just the right amount of familiar and fresh. Though there isn’t a whole lot to write home about when it comes to the presentation, the core gameplay is more than enough to keep you engaged. We give this one a strong recommendation, especially to those who are looking to dip their toes into the twitch platforming genre. Splasher is easy enough to pick up, yet difficult to master, and stands as a worthy addition to the Switch eShop.

    Splasher is an interesting and fulfilling game, thanks to its good level design and to its simple nature, which allows for fun and compelling experiences in the right amounts of time. A game that arrived full of promises and that fortunately, does not disappoint and is a solid and welcome entry in the growing catalog of the Nintendo Switch.

    Splasher truly shines when it comes to its core gameplay as well as the surprising variety of situations that you will encounter. While not the most ambitious game this year on the technical front, it delivers where it matters for a platformer. Splatoon and Super Meat Boy were good friends after all.

    Splasher is a platformer that wears its influences on its sleeve from a story taken straight from Oddworld and gameplay that can almost match Rayman. The game offers a nicely refined platforming experience that really nails the fast and fluid style, the game is a great showcase of how these games should play and the only praise this game needs is that I would like to see a sequel that expands on these ideas.

    One of the best, most innovative, platforming games I have ever played. I highly recommend getting it if you enjoy platforming games at all.

    so yeah i really enjoyed my time with this game, it is such a hidden gem on the switch, and i think you should defiantly add it to your collection of games

The story isThis is a very good modern platforming game at a very low price. The controls are creamy and the game-play mechanics are clever. The story is neutral stimuli but the gameplay is stellar. Splasher has a clean art style and eschews the pixel aesthetic that has been done to death for the past 10 years. It's challenging but not quite approaching Super Meat Boy/Celeste difficulty. It's an underrated eShop gem. Expand

    When an Inkorp employee witnesses his fellow workers being led to their doom by their evil boss, he steps up and fights back.

    Splasher is another addition into the already crowded 2D platformer genre, but it is a very good one. The controls are tight, it offers a good challenge without ever feeling unfair and new elements are introduced at just the right pace. In fact, the only real criticism I have is that the checkpoints can sometimes be a little too far apart. All in all, if you’re a fan of the genre, Splasher is well worth playing.

The concepts of painting were the primary reason I brought the game, and it's was pure fun to jump around or escalate the walls. However, you will see the same three monsters, saw or laser. The lack of story and explanations is hardly helping you to get into the game. In the last five levels, the checkpoints are far distanced from each other, giving the lazy shortcut to challenge the players. The games crashed randomly on the Nintendo switch to provide you with an example; It crashed three times on the last level alone. It's was ok but wait for a considerable discount. Expand
