    As surprise release games go, Swords & Soldiers’ age – and the sheer number of platforms it’s appeared on – might lead you to sleep on it. But despite having appeared on plenty of Nintendo consoles already, Two Tribes’ comical mix of resource management and real-time strategy is just as fun, silly and rewarding as it was back in 2009. Its looks are a little blurry in places, but the simplicity of its concept (and the short nature of its matches) make it a perfect fit for handheld play.

    The spirit of it is wonderful, but if you want to check the series out, I’d more recommend you wait for the sequel to come out in March.

    Swords and Soldiers returns to a Nintendo console and the result is a fun and addictive effort that gains a new level of amusement on multiplayer, though it could really use an online component. Thanks to its well-designed strategic component and to its simple and accessible gameplay, Swords and Soldiers on the Nintendo Switch can be a very alluring and enjoyable experience.

    While it's mostly a by-the-numbers tower defence game, and a dated one at that, it's also surprisingly enjoyable. The comedic tone and writing, while not laugh-out-loud funny, has some pretty amusing moments. It's just a little too short, but fans of this one can look forward to the sequel reaching Switch soon.

    Among the mobile games available on Switch, Swords & Soldiers stands out as an enjoyable strategy game that, despite its simplicity, works well as a bite-sized handheld experience.
