Retro City Rampage has been out a while, originally released on my birthday in 2012, five years later it’s arrived on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s a review of the ever-popular game from VBlank Entertainment.
Everyone loves minigolf, or crazy golf as I like to call it (anyone else?). There’s just something so charming and whacky about navigating all sorts of weird and wonderful obstacles that’s just not possible in the dreary world of actual golf. It brings back fond memories of seaside trips with the family. Helping out the nostalgia feels is Zen Studios, famous for their Zen Pinball series, with Infinite Minigolf released on all major platforms including the Switch which is the version I’m reviewing.
Quirky puzzle games seem to go hand in hand with Nintendo systems, especially handheld ones. In the systems short life we already have Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Switch, Magical Drop 2, as well as this new release from Intense.
Strikers 1945 is a vertical scrolling bullet hell shooter originally made by Psikyo in 1995 for arcades, now out for the Nintendo Switch thanks to Zerodiv. As you guess from the title alone, it’s a World War 2 themed shooter, but with a typical whacky Japanese spin on it. Yes, you’ll probably have already guessed it… flying Spit Fires on the moon, flying battleship mechs and space crabs! But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s go back to the beginning.
