    A kind-hearted jaunty adventure that sees you try to bring the best out of those who inhabit the world. It’s not all song and dance though as it is a reflective experience that might just see you learning a bit more about yourself.

    Wandersong is a puzzle-platformer unlike anything you've seen before, and it deserves a place on your Switch right now.

    Wandersong is by no means perfect, but it is very different. Charm oozes out of every note and motion you make. Despite the technical glitches it is consistently winning and moving, with a lack of aggression and a genuine optimism that beams through like nothing else. It really will bring a smile to your face.

    If there’s one thing that could have taken this from alright to great, the game could have treated its mechanic as an actual puzzle instead of a gimmick. More Zelda-style instrument playing than Moonwalker-inspired song and dance.

My only real gripe is the ending, which just borrows from earlier in the game. Regardless, still a great experience. Expand

    A surprisingly epic adventure with unique singing mechanics. Great story and characters, weaker platforming.
