    Lumote’s initial promise fails to deliver, with not enough of a hook to maintain long-term engagement. Its visuals are stunning, but lack variety, and the puzzling is capable, but awkward in places.

    Card Shark is an intriguing title that tells an engaging story while hitting you with a constant barrage of mechanics. This can start to feel overwhelming, but persevere and you’ll be sucked into a truly wondrous world.

    Overall, Ikai is a psychological horror game that only provides horror through its lack of direction, scare tactics, and numerous graphical issues. The atmosphere it creates is brilliant, but it is a disappointment in every other aspect.

    Cotton Fantasy has all the makings of a great title. However, the execution of its mechanics does little to set it apart from better games of its kind.

    Nintendo has delivered a sports game far too light on content with Battle League, missing an opportunity for a memorable series revival. Thankfully, the top-tier animations and chaotic gameplay make for a great time regardless.

    OPUS: Echo of Starsong is a fantastic visual novel but is difficult to get into in many other ways. It’s not easy for players to tackle if they can’t handle big text dumps or seek out the story themselves.

    Cloud Gardens walks a tenuous line between being a proper puzzle game and a challenge-less toy box. The result is an almost mindless yet relaxing experience that unfortunately overstays its welcome.

    Roguebook is an interesting roguelike deck-building game with a difficulty curve that could either frustrate or excite you. If you like a challenge, and enjoy card battles, consider picking this one up.

    Vesper: Zero Light Edition combines stealth platforming with light/dark puzzles in a visually arresting landscape. There’s a lot to like (light?) here, but the core gameplay isn’t quite as compelling as the beautiful presentation. Nevertheless, Vesper is worth investigating.

    Dungeons of Dreadrock doesn’t do anything substantially new but manages to feel interesting and unique because of the way each level has been hand-crafted, carefully considering the interactions between the few mechanics at your fingertips.

    Soundfall might sound pretty great on paper, but the execution could have been better. It’s missing the creativity that could have elevated it to greater heights. What we’re left with is a promising shooter that falls into repetition disappointingly often.

    Bad Writer is a short little step into the world of a struggling writer. While it is an accurate insight into the challenges of pursuing art, the metaphor doesn’t really translate into a fun gaming experience.

    Overall, Citizen Sleeper is a fantastic game, with many quirky characters to meet and interesting stories to get engrossed in. If you are into tabletop RPGs and are looking for an easy-to-play substitute, this is the game for you.

    Gibbon: Beyond the Trees combines gorgeous painterly visuals, and fantastic swinging mechanics, with an urgent and emotional story told with sensitivity. Sadly a couple of performance issues hold back this lovely game, leaving it a few monkeys short of a zoo.

    With its gentle ambient sounds and pastel colour palette, Mini Motorways presents an enjoyable and addictive city management challenge. It’s a particularly immersive treat when played in handheld mode, featuring a steady difficulty curve that lures you back for more.

    Combining nuanced storytelling with engaging and addictive gameplay, Bugsnax is a real treat through and through. Some technical stumbles aside, this is a title that any fan of games needs to experience for themselves.

    Nintendo Switch Sports is competent, but unremarkable. It fails to recapture the magic of the Wii days, even though all of the tools are available. It does exactly what it says it will, but little else.

    The experience of The Stanley Parable is as fresh and unique now as it was almost ten years ago. To make things even better, the new content included with this Ultra Deluxe edition expands the game in new and interesting ways, making it well-worthy of a (re)visit.

    Archvale is an engrossing title that you never really stop thinking about. It’s got everything a soulslike or Zelda fan could need, but twists the gameplay just enough to keep it feeling fresh, even when you’re grinding out levels to take on a boss.

    Formula Retro Racing is pleasingly accessible and will offer instant nostalgia to 90s arcade-dwellers. Yet its lack of depth, online options, and long-term replayability means that only the most dedicated petrolheads will persist for long.

    Primordia is a solid story with a point-and-click adventure built around it. A few unique mechanics keep things fresh throughout, whilst fantastic writing keeps frustration at bay when trying to solve the mostly logical puzzles.

    Overall, Revita is a fun and challenging twin-stick roguelite game that offers players some different and exciting gameplay features to learn and master. There are better roguelites out there, but why not try them all?

    Rebellion have done a commendable job of remaining true to all that makes for a decent zombie horde shooter whilst also ensuring that Zombie Army 4 delivers an enjoyable and engaging game either alone or with friends.

    Z-Warp offers up some tried and tested shoot ’em up action but little besides. Those who enjoy amassing high scores should find a decent amount of enjoyment from the game, but its appeal is limited.

    Dexter Stardust is a short and straightforward adventure that plays on its charm. With witty moments, an enjoyable storyline, and great production values, this could be the beginning of a successful franchise.

    A puzzle-platformer that puts story first, What Lies in the Multiverse switches out the challenging obstacle-filled fare we’re used to with this genre in favour of a well-polished narrative adventure that’s engaging to the end.

    Tormented Souls is a fabulous return to classic survival horror, the likes of which haven’t been seen for years. Even horror novices will gel with it because it updates the genre just enough to be accessible in 2022.

    Nobody Saves the World is a quirky and engaging little action RPG. With smooth controls, awesome art and sound, plenty of customization options, and fantastic multiplayer; you should definitely consider adding this one to your Switch library.

    Neon Splash is a masterfully crafted sequel that takes the very best elements of the original highly stylized 3D platformer that Demon Turf is. By ditching the problematic combat, it offers a pure platforming experience that, while brief, is stellar.

    Dawn of the Monsters isn’t reinventing anything, but that lets it focus on what counts – punching big monsters in the mouth. If that sounds like fun to you, then you won’t be disappointed.
