    Cities: Skyline is sometimes frantic, sometimes peaceful, and great fun to play, but performance issues plague it at almost every turn.

    The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition is a wonderful narrative adventure with only a couple of performance issues.

    It might not truly capture the treacherous thrill of mountain biking, but Bike Unchained 2 is still a lot of fun.

    Meowoof has a lot more meat on its bones than most casual games like this can even dream of.

    Discovering everything that Chaos Reborn: Adventures has to offer is one of the most enjoyable parts of the game. It fills the experience with little eureka moments, while not distracting from the density of the battles. This is an expensive game, but there's so much more going on here than in pretty much any other strategy game you can grab for mobile. Is it worth it? If you're a fan of the genre than absolutely - this is without a doubt the best turn-based strategy game you can get for your phone or tablet.

    Hyper Light Drifter is a neon-soaked, hyper-kinetic fever dream of an action-RPG with one of the most alluring game worlds of its kind.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Punch Line is weird and wonderful in all the right ways, and the dark plot underneath it all makes it that bit more interesting.

    Wall Kickers might have the look of something you've played before, but give it a try and you'll get a lovely surprise.

    Alphabear 2 is every bit as endearing and entertaining as its predecessor, but it's got a few new ideas too.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A familiar casual builder with a charming Star Trek skin but precious little depth, as well as an annoying over-reliance on wait timers and virtual currencies.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    SNK Heroines is all about the silly fanservice, but it's at the expense of having a satisfying combat system and any real depth.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Valleys Between is an intriguing, sometimes frustrating, but always intelligent premium puzzler.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It doesn't have the lineage of other fighting games, but Blade Strangers is well worth checking out.
    • 80 Metascore

    Overall, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a game that fans will love, and newcomers will get something out of if they invest their time. It's big, tough, and full of dangers, and if grindy, loot-filled action is your bag, then you should jump straight in. But the complete package is lacking some spit and polish that more modern titles have, and it feels like something of a consolation prize for Switch owners compared to Monster Hunter World and its many changes and improvements to the series on other consoles.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Golfing Around might lack the madcap nature of Colin Lane's earlier games, but the extra depth here makes it well worth checking out.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall, Into the Breach is a truly stunning strategy game, and it's right at home on Switch. With just three units to control and short matches to contend with, it's easy to pick up and play wherever you are. The strategy mechanics are absolutely sublime, and the shift from outright victory being your objective to simply scraping by will have you scratching your head and questioning every decision. It can be tough going at times, both mentally and due to its high difficulty, but if you invest some time and energy into the game, you're going to get a lot out of it.

    Donut County is simply stunning. It smashes together smart gameplay, simple controls, a ridiculous storyline, and a gorgeous soundtrack, creating a masterpiece of an easy-going puzzler. If you're looking for something with tons of depth and hours of gameplay, you won't find it here. But what you will find is one of the finest puzzle games you may ever play, and an experience that will stay with you long after the credits roll.

    Apart from the lack of an undo button, One More Button is a slick and engaging puzzler with a difference.

    Not much has changed since Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes came out in 2015 and that's mostly a good thing. Whether you're playing through the campaign mode or prefer taking on your very own bombs in Free Play mode, it'll keep you on your toes. There's no major need to pick it up if you've got the game on another platform already, but at such a low price it's hard not to recommend it to liven up social gatherings.

    Okami HD is a silky smooth port of a beautiful game which takes advantage of the Switch's capabilities and doesn't charge you an arm and a leg for it.

    Evergarden is a brilliant, relaxing, and utterly enthralling puzzle game that you should grab right now.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are a few too many technical glitches here at the moment, but the gameplay waiting for you beyond them is chaotic and brilliant.

    • 80 Critic Score
    It isn't the most original game, but the tweaks and twists Bendy in Nightmare Run adds keep things pretty fresh.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Memopoly has an interesting idea at its heart, but its barrage of adverts and repetitive gameplay make it hard to enjoy for long.

    The early part of the game might be a bit of a slog, but stick with it and you'll find a fantastic experience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great distillation of stealth mechanics into a fun and engaging arcade score-chaser.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    State of Mind has a certain charm to it, but it's mired in a confusing story, simple puzzles, poor controls, and plenty of other issues.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The story mode of Warioware Gold only lasts a couple of hours, but those few hours are bursting with enjoyment and madcap humour.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Kings and Assassins might not have much allure for the solo board gamer, but it's hard to beat when it comes to multiplayer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Part Stroop test, part high-score chaser, OLDTV is certainly a brain tickler with a striking aesthetic. Whether it's any fun or not is a trickier question to answer.
