    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus doesn't disappoint either with its story, characters, or in the Nazi-slaying department. The fact that you can do so portably, largely without compromise cements the Nintendo Switch version as one of the best ways to play despite a few niggles found across all platforms.

    20XX is a great tribute to the Mega Man X franchise that just works. The procedurally generated levels allow for constantly fresh challenges, and its swift gameplay encourages you to climb the online leaderboards.

    Crash Bandicoot is back, and hopefully now for good. The original Naughty Dog trilogy are the best in the series, and not only does this collection see their debut on a Nintendo platform, but it's the best version possible of the games. Willy the Wombat is reborn,and with Vicarious Visions at the helm I now have high hopes for the future, especially considering Crash has become the fastest selling game on Switch in 2018.

    Jolt Family Robot Racer attempts to add a competitive edge to the platforming formula, unfortunately a lack of progression and content holds back already lacklustre gameplay. With little to offer it's hard to recommend the game to anyone in particular but there's something promising about the concept of racing in a platforming style.

    One Strike will make a good addition to any gathering of friends but don't expect much life from it as a solo experience.

    Screenshots don’t do it justice, but Yuso is a pleasant and engaging puzzle game that provides the pickup and play mentality you want from this type of game and follows through with the depth.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a brilliant puzzle-platformer game, which will constantly impress you with creative stages and a top-notch presentation. Despite providing different experiences if played on handheld or console modes, it delivers a charming adventure, with tons of content to keep you hooked for hours.

    Drago Dino is a game that hardly works and even when it manages to get past a loading screen the gameplay offered is poorly executed and not enjoyable.

    N++ is a platform game of near perfection. There are countless levels to explore, a boatload of collectables, and a satisfyingly steep difficulty curve that perfectionists will relish.

    Disco Dodgeball Remix is a fun pick up and play game that does interesting things with a simple core idea, for those looking for some simple fun there's enough on offer here. However an uninteresting progression system means that you're either in this for the love of dodgeball or there wont be much to hold your interest.

    Defoliation deserves no place on your Switch. It's a poor attempt at a visual novel, littered with shockingly translated dialogue and boring puzzles. Avoid!

    Flashback is a great game that somehow manages to stand the test of time twenty five years later. The option to adjust the difficulty with the new Modern Mode should allow newcomers to ease into the admittedly brutal gameplay.

    There is no particularly remarkable title in the entire Sparkle franchise. Even then, Sparkle Zero feels like the most barebones execution of the creature-evolving idea. With no quest system, creature variety and different environments, there’s no reason to start from zero here.

    INK
    INK is a highly enjoyable platformer with a strong core mechanic of inking platforms in order to progress. Sadly, there's just not enough of it, and most players will breeze through it in just a few hours.

    Perfect Angle looks to provide a short compelling experience and the interesting perspective mechanic is novel at first but the game quickly runs out of ideas and some minor design decisions only make some of the puzzles even more of a drag.

    Runner3 is a thoroughly enjoyable return to form for Commander Video and friends, both as an advancement of the long-running indie series and its debut on Switch. Some minor, frustrating setbacks hold it back from greatness, but the rhythmic platforming the series is known for is present and as dynamic as ever.

    Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion serves up something that is satisfying, challenging and entertaining in equal measure. It won’t redefine the core game, and you’ll probably finish it in a week, but it’s joyous exuberance more than makes up for it. A must for any Splatoon fan.

    An improvement from last year's edition, but things are still too disappointing on the field. Glitches do seem to have been minimised after last year's effort, and a new mode gives some depth off the field, but I was looking for more thrills on it.

    Those looking for a fairytale-like sense of wonder that pushes you to discover and explore will feel right at home at Hollow Knight. In a world where the Switch eShop is stacked with metroidvanias, few others are as in-depth or well-made as Team Cherry's hand-drawn modern classic.

    Baobabs Mausoleum Episode 1: Ovnifagos Don't Eat Flamingos tries so hard to emulate its influences but misconstrues the difference between inspiration and imitation. Had it toned down the references might’ve been a more original game, maybe even an interesting one.

    Soccer Slammers offers easy to pick up and super fast-paced arcade soccer action. It was never going to rival FIFA in the battle of the football games, but it offers unadulterated short burst fun in a way that its heavyweight rival doesn't.

    A Magical High School Girl is a very repetitive and basic rogue like game which puts up a really difficult argument for starting again each time you die.

    Super Chariot is a release that hasn't come out to much fanfare but deserves a spot in your collection. A unique premise is coupled with some charming platforming action. Make sure you bring a friend, though, as that will improve the experience immensely.

    From the very beginning, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles impresses with its amazing visuals and soundtrack. It takes form as a relaxing open-world adventure, that features many elements of crafting and farming. While the later doesn’t perfectly fits with its openness nature, it is still an enjoyable experience nevertheless.

    While it may attract criticism for the licensing issues that meant the absence of a number of boards from other versions of the game, The Pinball Arcade isn't dramatically worse for it due to the similarity of the experiences of each board. It's pinball, and it's table pinball. You know what you're getting.

    Henry the Hamster Handler is a simple, inexpensive game that's simple and amusing, but that still doesn't make it worth a purchase. The problem is once I'd finished 10 of the games' 300 levels I'd seen it all. I can't help but feel more effort could have gone into creating some variety in the levels rather than churning them out in a similar fashion to the in-game hamsters themselves.

    The Framed Collection might be just another mobile port, but it is one that is right at home on the Switch. You might not spend that much time with the two games included, but you’ll enjoy every scene that you play.

    What The Fall offers in story and atmosphere is a little let down by some clunky controls. It's an enjoyable exploration which will be lengthened by some difficult puzzles if you don't use a guide, so by all means go for it if you didn't try it on Wii U.

    If you manage to ignore its technical issues, Dungeon Rushers delivers a worthwhile tabletop-like dungeon crawler experience, with a surprisingly deep turn-based combat, and tons of content to offer.

    Hexologic is a simplistic, relaxing puzzler that combines its calm music with some pleasing aesthetics and rewarding design. Whilst this does mean that it can be relatively easy to complete, it's cheap and makes a nice companion to watching TV or listening to a podcast after a long day. At such a low price point, it's hard to say no to another mobile game enhanced on the Switch.
