    As a huge Wonder Boy fan, I enjoyed Wonder Boy Returns Remix but it's definitely not a complete improvement over 2017's less than stellar offering. The fact that it's missing a lot of its content simply doesn't make much sense at all.

    Rad
    RAD is the sort of roguelike that's enjoyable once everything starts to click but after that, repetition and frustration unfortunately rear their ugly mutated heads. It's still a fun game but one that you'll likely only pick up and play every once in a while.

    It's certainly a good-looking and challenging shoot 'em up but Pulstar isn't quite as fun as many other NeoGeo shooters.

    Although Last Resort is a solid shoot 'em up, it's nothing more than an R-Type wannabe that definitely hasn't aged as well.

    Crystal Crisis is definitely a step up from Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo although that step is a rather small one so it ends up feeling more like a retro copycat than a new and exciting puzzler. That being said, playing it is still a ton of fun, especially in multiplayer.

    Even though it's enjoyable at first, #RaceDieRun's overly sensitive mechanics make playing it eventually become too frustrating.

    3D space shooters don't get much simpler than Subdivision Infinity DX but its gameplay is certainly tight and challenging enough.

    I had a ton of fun with Forager for the first 10 hours or so but once I got to the point when the pacing becomes tedious, that fun quickly came to a halt. Nevertheless, I would still recommend Forager to fans of similar games.

    With so many ways to virtually kill zombies, playing Zombie Driver in this day and age offers little more than shallow albeit satisfying fun.

    Telefrag VR features fast-paced gun-based combat but its content is rather limited, especially because it's for only up to 2 players.

    It may not look like much but there's a lot going on in Catch a Duck so mastering its tricky stages can be quite fun.

    Although it's generic and frequently frustrating, Woodle Tree 2: Deluxe is still a delightful game that 3D platformer fans can enjoy.

    Although it's short and lacks replay value, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is such an immersive and enjoyable experience that it's worth purchasing simply to pilot its 3 unique and powerful robots. Let's just hope Bethesda expands this gem into something more worthwhile.

    Although it's fantastic to be able to experience 5 completely different gameplay styles, 198X's campaign is over within an hour or so and all you can do after that is replay its brief chapters again and again. The fact that you can't skip cutscenes is just a kick in the pants.

    Although Etherborn is a somewhat short and often frustrating adventure, its intricate stages are mostly a joy to solve.

    Darksiders III fans will find The Crucible to be a great way to show off their skills. That being said, it's still just a combat arena.

    Watermelon Party is yet another solid purchase for adding to your local multiplayer party game playlist with is simple and fun gameplay.

    As an admirer of trains, I enjoyed my time with Mini Trains a lot although it's a very simple game and feels like it should be in VR.

    Although Astro Bears is merely an update to its predecessor, it's still a fun little party game that 4 players can enjoy together.

    Enjoying A-Train Express depends on your propensity to experiment in order to learn its ins and outs. Impatient gamers need not apply.

    Sometimes, silly games are worth purchasing for a laugh and Counter Fight 3 is great for that but it does run out of steam quite fast.

    If you're looking for an enjoyable series of puzzles to work through then Run the Fan offers both challenging and satisfying gameplay.

    When a game is inspired by the classics, you'd hope that it improves upon them. Although Aggelos doesn't, it's still a rather fun game.

    If SolSeraph featured more in-depth core gameplay in either of its 2 genres then it would be a much more fulfilling experience.

    For those who must own every shoot 'em up on Switch, Q-YO Blaster is worth downloading even with its middle-of-the-road gameplay.

    Blazing Chrome is an authentic retro run 'n' gun experience that'll surely satisfy genre fans. That being said, there are many frustrating moments that are difficult to overlook and the amount of content is a little thin, too.

    If you want to play a simplistic game while laughing at an unfortunate protagonist then Dandy Dungeon will surely fit the bill.

    If you like the idea of an indie version of Space Invaders with nifty power-ups then you're sure to have fun with Doughlings: Invasion.

    Although it can be frustrating and its fuel system isn't as strategic as it could have been, Hero Express is a unique and worthwhile indie.
