    Don't Starve: Nintendo Switch Edition is perfect for survival and strategy-lovers, but it could've used a couple more weeks in testing to nip those pesky bugs in the bud. Though it's as fun as ever there's nothing different about this version and, especially if you've already sunk hours and hours into the game on PC, console, or mobile, there's no real need to pick this up again. I mean, unless you want to own it on the Switch.

    The single player might be a little lacking in this digital board game, but the multiplayer just about makes up for it.

    The Adventure Pals may not be particularly challenging, but it's a tidy platform that wants you to have fun with it.

    Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is a familiar ride, but it's no less enjoyable than its predecessor.

    Gal*Gun 2 has its charms, but they're hidden beneath lacklustre shooting and lengthy, repetitive levels.

    Vandals adds some new ideas to a genre that needed them, and it's also an incredible amount of fun.

    It has its moments, but Attack on Titan 2 descends a little too quickly into repetition.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Pillars of the Earth is a detailed and rich narrative adventure with a few irritating audio goofs that break the immersion.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Ava Airborne is a beautiful endless flier that's full to the brim of ideas, distractions and unlockables. It just lacks the momentum and laser focus of the very best.

    Ovivo is a wonderful game, full of excellent ideas, and you should definitely give it a go.

    A charming detective game that's perhaps a little too simplistic for its own good. Fans of Pokémon's fiction will lap it up, however, and in Detective Pikachu himself we have a new breakout star.

    A solid and cute if overly simplistic take on Peggle, which sacrifices tactile unpredictability for a more streamlined approach.
    • 79 Metascore

    Outlast 2 is full of scares, gorgeous graphics, wonderful use of light and dark, and has a compelling story, but does fall prey to its previous shortcomings.

    An elegant, imaginative platformer with an intriguing mechanic and beautiful visuals.

    Hyperforma is by no means a bad game, and it's got its own unique style that makes it a joy to watch. But eventually things just start to feel a little bit flat.

    There are some really good ideas in Nano Golf, but its simplicity eventually means it runs out of steam a bit.
    • 74 Metascore

    Clustertruck may be fun for short periods of time, but it's also hard and unforgivable and eventually that can grind you down.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fierce and compelling FPS that will keep you enthralled from the second you load it up.

    Despite some shortcomings, PUBG is still an incredibly compelling experience on mobile.

    Last Day of June is an emotive and nicely balanced narrative adventure with a few issues holding it back.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has its moments, and those moments are worth sticking around some of the less interesting parts for.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are a few niggles here and there, but if you love your board games fantastical and polished, you're going to love Armello.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fans of classic point-and-click adventures will feel right at home here, but anyone else might find The Long Reach a little flat.

    Outlast: Bundle of Terror is a generous survival horror bundle ideal for newcomers to the game and old hands.
    • 73 Metascore

    Mulaka is a striking and interesting adventure with a few small let-downs.

    .Projekt is a brilliantly original, ingeniously designed spatial puzzler with only a few niggling control issues keeping it from true greatness.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Blissfull is a neat, clever and challenging puzzler that simply doesn't go far enough to appeal to a broader audience.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dizzying array of ideas and a varied combat system overlay a disappointingly basic platformer. Kirby Star Allies is a super-sweet confection that lacks a little substance
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has the potential to be a great game, but Scribblenauts Showdown just doesn't have enough depth or freedom to live up to its name.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A dark, complex, and deep strategy game that pushes you to build more at every turn.
