In my opinion on of the best platformers on the switch. This title gives you plenty to unlock, while giving you some slick platforming action along the way. I was particularly impressed on the variation in level type, bringing in. lots of cool level designs and character mechanics without it ever feeling overwhelming. One all platform players should have in their collection.

Songbird Symphony

Thimbleweed Park

Price: £14.99 to £5.99 – 60%

File Size: 930mb

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember LucasArts and the amazing Secret’s of Monkey Island. Thimbleweed park is a pixel perfect point of click adventure of the same ilk, delivering clever dialogue and many pop culture references. A great adventure to go on.

Valiant Hearts: The great War

Price: £16.00 to £4.80 – 70%

File Size: 1.4gb

Shockingly, another game I’ve completed, but most importantly absolutely loved. This 2d puzzler is set to a background of war, and while you play away through this adventure, the stories of the intertwining characters as they deal with whats around them pull you in without you noticing, investing you into the stories. I also enjoyed how throughout the game you could also learn about the true history of the time, the developers allowing you to chose to stay and read, not pushing it on the player. A great puzzler with a truly emotional end.


Price: £14.99 to £2.99 – 80%

File Size: 2.6gb

A top notch beat-em-up for the switch, inspired by the old arcade classics with challenging AI and a pleasing cartoon art style. Plus you get to smash some Romans. I mean, what have they ever done for us anyways?
