    Catastronauts will be popular with fans of Overcooked, and is good fun with a few friends in tow. On your own, however, it’s not much cop.

    Ivanych vs Eared Beast never feels anything more than lame. Light on content, and without a way of recording your best scores, this is poor.

    Bad Dream: Coma is a haunting hand-drawn point and click. Clever emphasis is placed on your decision making, though the logic of some of the puzzles isn’t quite as natural as it ought to be.

    Earthworms has an intriguing presentation but is a little short to live long in the memory. Fortunately, finding the three endings will increase your play time.

    Big Crown: Showdown is one of those unexpectedly fun eShop titles that’s great to play with friends. A disappointing online experience lets it down somewhat, however.

    JCB Pioneer: Mars is slow-paced and won’t be for everyone. There’s a lack of real excitement – this is more about the long game as you build up a base – very, very slowly.

    You can tell the developers put a lot of time into HoPiKo, and for that they should be commended. But we’d have liked to feel more in charge of the controls.

    Animated Jigsaws is fun enough to pass the time. Some tricky issues with managing so many pieces on the touch screen were always likely to exist, but at least it’s pretty enjoyable.

    Trouserheart is simple and fun, but lacks the depth to be memorable to any major note. Fortunately the price point isn’t too high, but expect to see it in an eShop sale in the future.

    There’s nothing quite as agonising as getting every penny in a house only to get hit by an enemy and leave with nothing. But The Swindle does feel good when it’s going well. It’s just very, very tricky.

    Those wanting something a bit different from the always-familiar genre of space shooters will likely find it with Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax.

    Beholder has a clever, unique concept, and explores some interesting ideas in its story, but in the Switch port of the game the controls and menus, alongside the abnormal ‘recommended’ difficulty make it more of a chore to play than previous versions.

    Set in a Utopian island inhabited by dinosaurs, ARK: Survival Evolved engages the player on a survival gameplay loop that could have been as engaging as it is punitive – if it wasn’t plagued by so many technical issues.

    My Farm 2018 is a very basic game with core mechanics that like a mobile title. It lacks variation, and scores low for its disappointing and repetitive gameplay.

    Shadow Fight 2 offers its players a variety of characters and stages to choose from, but an abysmal gameplay experience overall. With poor hit detection, a flawed combat system and a highly-frustrating, grind-heavy campaign, it has limited appeal beyond its mobile origins. My advice? Stick to other fighting games.

    By ditching some classic elements of the rogue-like genre in favour of a permanent progression system, Rogue Legacy delivers a more welcoming and rewarding experience – even if it can get a bit repetitive with time.

    Please, Don’t Touch Anything won’t feel like anything you’ve played before, and is great at encouraging trial and error. The puzzling isn’t perfect and there are only a few endings which will take more than five minutes to figure out, but it’s good fun nonetheless.

    Red’s Kingdom is a pleasant surprise – clever puzzling under the disguise of some very cutesy visuals. There’s a lot of gameplay here – so short bursts is the recommended play option.

    Wargroove is a majestic contender, if not outright successor, to Advance Wars, that every turn-based strategy fan should play. Beyond it’s handsome campaign and likable characters, there’s a ton of customisation and content to dig into or create, which makes it a bargain too.

    I wasn’t expecting much from Outrun, and initially I wasn’t impressed. Thankfully I persevered and found a surprisingly charming little racer that occupied me for many days. If you are looking for a simple, cheap and cheerful racer you could do far worse.

    Panda Hero is an abomination of a game and is fully deserving of a bad review. We feel sorry for the collectors who have to pick it up.

    A treat to the eyes, Warframe is a beautiful looking free-to-play game that presents a fast-paced and very fluid third-person shooter gameplay. Despite being a bit grindy, it has a huge amount of content to be enjoyed with friends.

    As beautiful as Heroki may be, its gameplay unfortunately doesn’t compliment its design, making for an unfortunately mediocre platformer.

    Considering the current lack of realistic looking racing games on Switch, Gear Club Unlimited 2 does manage to stand out. Whilst the load times are problematic, the core driving gameplay is surprisingly enjoyable and for that reason alone is worth considering.

    Once you get into the groove of its logic, it has solid pacing, clever puzzles, and enough charm to keep players engaged.

    Battle Princess Madelyn seeks to emulate the likes of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, to some success. The old-school gameplay may hinders the modern elements from its History mode, but the game still delivers a fun experience.

    Cluedo had the potential to be a great digital board game experience on the go but is hindered by its inability to embrace the Switch or more broadly to make concessions to a digital experience.

    Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland DX wraps up the story of the trilogy nicely but fails to impress from a gameplay standpoint.

    Color Zen is a truly relaxing puzzle game, offering light entertainment and relief from stress and anxiety when you need it most. With bright, colourful graphics, enjoyable music and quirky animations, it is definitely worth a try – especially as the game is free to download.

    In its ten or so hours of gameplay, Travis Strikes Again throws up a messy concoction of minigames within a loose ‘main’ game that gets worse as you progress. The story is confusing and irrelevant, co-op is an afterthought and with muddy and jaggy visuals, it makes you wonder what the direction developer Grasshopper Manufacturer wanted to take with this spin-off. It’s clearly evident they didn’t know either.
