    Ploid Saga comes close but doesn’t hit the mark with its cross-genre collection of games. Some lovely visual design and a fantastic soundtrack aren’t enough to pull it back from monotonous level design and unfinished build quality.

    The StoryTale has a few significant flaws that mar what little entertainment it provides. A sprinkling of originality is not enough to elevate this title to a position from which it can stand out in a crowded genre.

    Colt Canyon offers an interesting take on the western genre which works extremely well as a roguelike adventure. Pixel art, twin-stick shooting, and a well-crafted soundtrack combine effortlessly, it’s just a shame that it is as challenging as it is.

    Some frustrating camera angles can make Monochrome World somewhat stressful, but getting to roll a cute round pink raindrop shaped like a raccoon makes it all okay. The price is right, so if you like action puzzle games consider this for your collection.

    A deeply pleasant set of worlds, with a deviously complex set of puzzles to explore, Locomotion is a satisfyingly tough puzzle game that just happens to be gorgeous to look at. A fantastic addition to the Switch’s puzzle game collection.

    SNK Gals’ Fighters repays whatever effort you’re willing to put in. It’s a full-featured package with lots of well-polished fighting action and surprising depth to its diminutive setting. It’s just a crying shame about the lack of online.

    Ego Protocol: Remastered is a puzzle title which provides more irritation than it does satisfaction. The fiddly tile-sliding proves so much of a chore that there’s little to no motivation to go on and get three-star scores on each level.

    The Eternal Castle [Remastered] creates interactive art with this arcade-style platformer, but its old-school nature comes with both charm and flaws. While it is a one-of-a-kind experience with a co-op option, those seeking robust gameplay options should look elsewhere.

    Atomicrops is a challenging twin-stick shooter with light sim elements presented in beautiful, bizarre pixel-art package. Lacklustre farming controls and frame-rate drops prevent the label of greatness, but at £13.49, it’s well-priced and definitely worth your time.

    Darius Cozmic Collection Console is a must-have for hardcore Darius fans. However, given its shortcomings and steep retail price, it’s not as essential a purchase as the arcade edition of Taito’s shoot-em-up classics.

    Gun Crazy ticks the correct boxes for a nicely presented retro-inspired 2D run ‘n’ gun arcade game, but there is little originality and the overall package can be completed without breaking into too much of a pixelated sweat.

    Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade gathers some very important side-scrolling shoot-em-up classics into one very attractive package. It’s not a definitive edition by any means, but it’s a fantastic release for fans of the franchise.

    Golf With Your Friends might not be the ultimate multiplayer golf experience but there is still enough variety here to have a good time. Even when playing single player the intricate courses will keep you entertained.

    A timestamp of a transitional period for 3D platformers, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee may muster up nostalgia for original players, but the clunky, tedious platforming and missions reveal what a true fossil of the genre this entry has become.

    Patience for this port is a must as early experiences will end in fervent frustration. If you’re a speed freak with a penchant for simulation, there’s a lot to love here, but those looking for a casual racer should look elsewhere.

    Railway Empire tells a great tale of the Westward Expansion of the US’s railway system. You have to wrestle with some poorly explained and non-intuitive controls in order to get the most out of it, though – but once it’s up and running, this is one of the best train set video games you can get your hands on.

    Liberated is a game with a story more relevant now than ever, and an intriguing comic-book style aesthetic, it’s just a shame that this version comes with way too many bugs and frame-rate issues.

    Jump King is a game that deliberately wants you to hate its guts. However, the players who are really good at it have made it an art form. This is one that really separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls.

    Thy Sword looks great and controls like a dream. However, these wonderful traits, combined with the procedurally generated levels and roguelite elements, aren’t enough to keep you coming back once you’ve finished the campaign.

    Gimmicks and references can only carry a game so far, and in What the Golf?, what’s lying beneath these is lacking the substance of a truly worthwhile experience. With its higher stakes and unpredictability, though, the multiplayer mode shows more promise.

    Blind Men is a fun, well-written visual novel with a stellar soundtrack and charismatic characters. With a fast pace, multiple endings, and an astoundingly cheap price, it’s well worth the purchase if you enjoy the genre.

    Silent World is a short, extremely slow-paced 2D adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic world. The challenge is minimal, but hardcore fans could get some enjoyment without hurting their wallet.

    Wunderling is a charming and clever little puzzle-platformer with delightfully colourful graphics, a cast of cute characters, and excellent level design. If you’re a fan of the genre, don’t let this one pass you by.

    Despite the hype, Borderlands Legendary Collection never once delivered the thrills and spills I expect of a shooter. Irritations in the controls, the general gameplay, and the plodding storyline reduced my enjoyment to a minimum.

    Shantae and the Seven Sirens represents the very best this charming series of 2D platformers has to offer, offering fun exploration and cool abilities in spades.

    80’s Overdrive gets enough of its core concept right to provide an enjoyable, highly playable racing experience. It’s unambitious, and the overall package is lacking in polish and reasons to keep playing. But there’s plenty of fun while it lasts.

    Although it doesn’t stray whatsoever from the twin-stick roguelite template we’ve seen time and time again from eShop titles, Rush Rover still offers plenty of additive gameplay for hardcore fans of this very popular (and oversaturated) genre.

    51 Worldwide Classics is the poster child for the quote ‘less is more.’ By omitting some of the less engaging titles, the opportunity to develop some of the others in more detail would have presented itself. As it is, the ‘classic’ collection leaves something to be desired whilst still retaining all that we enjoy about Nintendo. That being said, a solid online experience will provide ample good fun for the masses, and a score will be given upon the release of Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics once the online elements have been tested fully.

    Elements of other video games have been resurrected to craft Ghost Sweeper, but the result is lacking. The game offers some thought-provoking challenges for the committed adventurer, but – like its resident ghosts – it’s all a bit soulless.

    While adventure RPG Fairy Knights puts a puzzler twist on the genre and features a cute art style, the uniqueness ends there. Little brainpower is necessary to overcome the combat, let alone drink in the bland environment and generic plot.
