    If fans of the Marvel universe will find plenty of reasons to enjoy this experience, other players might frown at the game's occasionally lagging performance, its too simplistic combat system and lacklustre audio component, which is not to say this is not an enjoyable and interesting game.

    Originally a free game developed for mobile devices, there is no reason for Car Mechanic Manager to be released on a console and with a monetary cost. As this game brings nothing worthy of praise to any segment of the market, there is no reason why it should be recommended to anyone.

    Strikey Sisters is a simple game with a simple formula and a simple presentation...and it works: it's a fun, challenging and high-paced effort which gains an additional appeal in multiplayer and presents itself with a retro art style that fits its premise perfectly. Its plot moments could be dispensed with but they do not in any way interfere with the quality of the gameplay in this work.

    With its myriad of game modes, top-notch visual and sound environment and amount of customizable experiences, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is something that every fan and enthusiast of kart-racing games will appreciate.

    Super Cane Magic ZERO is a 2D action RPG that thanks to its animation art style and absurdly funny plot, stands as one of the most original games of its genre in recent times. Players who pick it up will be further rewarded by its local cooperative multiplayer component, even if there are aspects related to loading times, the overall audio environment and instructions given to the player that could be improved.

    The original Guilty Gear gets a Nintendo Switch release more than twenty years after its debut in what is essentially a nostalgic release that does not attempt to change history. The frantic, action-packed combats and amazing soundtrack are still intact, but the other components of the game are visibly dated and aren't making an effort to keep up with more recent fighting games.

    GODS Remastered does one job well: it recreates the experience of the original GODS. It also does one job less well: it recreates the experience of the original GODS…without gameplay improvements. After nearly thirty years, the gameplay has advanced very little and while the level design is commendable for its intricate and demanding nature, the gameplay makes this game more cumbersome than it should be, especially for less experienced players.

    Graveyard Keeper is well-crafted effort and an original one at that - a cemetery management simulation game is nothing short of unique and Graveyard Keeper does the job with a very attractive visual environment, as well as complex and involving tasks. It doesn't try to appeal to less experienced players, though, as the information available during the game is sometimes lacking, the game experience is long, repetitive and slow-paced and there are some controller flaws to improve.

    This spin-off features a visually rich environment, fun gameplay mechanics and a myriad of unlockable content but it would have been more enjoyable if the game featured more characters and a greater variety of pinball tables.

    The well-designed sandbox world, along with its destruction physics and game modes make this a thoroughly enjoyable and fun game for anyone, while some occasional sight control problems can make the experience occasionally problematic but Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-Tered is not any less of a good game because of that.

    Battle Worlds: Kronos does its job of a strategy game competently, in a sector that's not very represented in the Nintendo Switch. While some elements are disappointing - the absence of the level creator and of an online multiplayer component are the main ones - the game does a decent work when it comes to its lifespan, combat system and local multiplayer component.

    While the game's missions could be more varied and Project Nimbus could certainly use a bigger variety of vehicles, fans of games involving enormous robotic-like bodies will enjoy this work, even if few outside this niche will feel attracted.

    Slender: The Arrival makes its Nintendo Switch debut six years after the original release and the result is a mixed bag: its sound atmosphere is still as breathtaking as it was and does an excellent job at keeping players on their toes; visually speaking, the game is showing its age. Overall the game's short lifespan, repetitiveness and generic plot mean this experience is rather average and doesn't fully stand out.

    The game's art style stands out but it can actually interfere with the gameplay, the difficulty quickly becomes frustrating and the game's short experience add up to a work that will not leave players fully satisfied with this choice, especially fans of the fly'em up style.

    Its journey, through a heavy, grey and gritty world, acts as a good example of how a dramatic connection between the player and the game can be achieved, and while the experience could certainly last longer, this is a work that will be very welcomed by players of all tastes.

    Shakedown: Hawaii brings forth a fun, well-humoured and visually satisfying 16-bit inspired world to a game that despite its good intentions, does not fully tick all the necessary boxes to achieve its entire potential. Mostly because the game feels like it ends too quickly, even though there is still plenty to do but the overall feeling of repetitiveness and a certain lack of challenge make it less compelling and involving than it could be. All that said, this is still a good effort that will keep players enjoyed.

    Super Mario Maker 2 could hardly be a better return of Nintendo's feat of Mario-based level design. Thanks to its wealth of content and options, simple interface, multiplayer component and sense of immersion, Super Mario Maker 2 is on a perfect track to become the main reference when it comes to games about platformers' design and one which will appeal to all kinds of players.

    Slay the Spire feels like a breath of fresh air that joins elements from card-based and roguelike games, which in principle may not sound like a winning formula but Slay the Spire gets it all right thanks to its combat system, lifespan and unpredictability of each experience. The result is an addictive experience that players of all tastes should enjoy.

    Aegis Defenders has several points in its favour, such as well-designed gameplay mechanics, a quality plot and its good audiovisual environment, but as it becomes clear, a good game is more than the sum of its parts. The game's puzzles quickly start feeling repetitive and its difficulty level comes off as exaggerated, which contribute to put Aegis Defenders in the territory of games that could have edged towards a much more memorable status.

    Blaster Master Zero 2 delivers a fun and challenging action game which nearly every player can enjoy. With its well designed levels and gameplay mechanics lying on a quality audiovisual environment, Blaster Master Zero 2 is a welcome arrival to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

    The Princess Guide may have creative and ambitious concepts and ideas and there's no doubt that it has several good aspects in its favour. Unfortunately the game also reveals some flaws when it comes to putting its ideas into place and the result is something that feels rather confusing, without a proper explanation of how the gameplay mechanics work, and with a too repetitive combat system.

    My Girlfriend is a Mermaid?! goes along the visual novel conventions but doesn't dare to try anything groundbreaking or that would allow it to stand out among its peers. As such, the game features good examples of character animation and soundtrack but its humour gets repetitive too quickly and the protagonists are not as attractive as fans of visual novels would expect them to be.

    Our World Is Ended. has interesting points in its favour, like its good looking visuals, vocalizations and a well implemented interface but these positive elements end up taking a second place to its rather weak characters, countless plot clichés and overall erratic advances in the game, not to mention its repetitive humour.

    Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda manages to present a Zelda game with a Crypt of the NecroDancer gameplay and it works like a charm. Not only is the kingdom of Hyrule portrayed in a marvelous way, the rhythm-based gameplay and concept are implemented flawlessly and the entire experience will entice players of all kinds.

    Vectronom is a simple but challenging work that makes a successful union between rhythm & music and puzzle-solving gameplay, along with a very well designed visual environment. Accessible but compelling, as well as addictive, Vectronom provides an experience that anyone can enjoy and which would only benefit if it lasted longer.

    Fate/Extella Link lands on the Nintendo Switch with the deserved distinction of being the most content-full game of the series when it comes to characters and their variety and a myriad of customization options that will make the delights of Fate fans. On top of that, the improvements made to the combat system and its sharper controls make Fate/Extella Link a game that fully deserves its place in the collection of every single Fate fan out there.

    Refunct has its advantages, it certainly helps the player relax and provides for a nice experience. Unfortunately Refunct is limited in what it gives the players: it is too short, too simple and its mechanics too limited for Refunct to be a truly enjoyable game. If Refunct made a greater effort at being a longer, more in-depth experience, it could be a recommended work.

    Blazing Beaks can be best described as a roguelikegame that's full of mysteries and secrets, and one which works marvelously whether on a solo or multiplayer level. It also features a delightful looking art style, so its randomly-generated levels can be enjoyed thoroughly in all their glory. It's a game that works like a charm and plays like one too.

    Niddhog 2 improves on the original game's experience to deliver a fun effort that stands out the most when played on local multiplayer, while its single-player experience feels rather empty. Nevertheless, Niddhog 2's combat system and its fluid action and gameplay mean that any party or group of players that picks it up will feel satisfied for doing so.

    Beat Cop is a fun and zany action game that puts the player in a cliché 1980s action movie setting and does a fine job at that. Its missions can get confusing and repetitive at certain moments but the game's mechanics and environment are noting short of delightfully funny and are certain to keep the players laughing and enjoying the experience for some time.
