Retro City Rampage DX is the culmination of a 15 year journey for Vblank Entertainment. It started development in 2002, and gained traction in 2011 as the indie darling of gaming conventions – now available in iterations on current gen, mobile, and even Nintendo consoles. Despite its original release on WiiWare in February 2013, and the DX edition on 3DS a year later, Retro City Rampage DX on Nintendo Switch feels not only like a fresh experience, it takes each advantage from previous versions and combines them to deliver the best version of a great game.

Severed is a rather unique touch-based game from Canadian natives Drinkbox Studios. It follows one-armed protagonist Sasha as she wakes up in a strange world, through her initial meeting with Death personified, and right on through into her game-long goal of finding her family. Though this isn’t my first romp with Sasha, it might as well have been – ’cause I had just as much fun playing it for the first time on Switch as I did when it first released on Vita. Severed is simply a gore-ridden masterpiece of dungeon crawling puzzle action, and I’m here to tell you a bit more about it.

Set two decades after the fall of Earth, Implosion – Never Lose Hope is a sci-fi hack and slash action game – putting you in the shoes of a survivor wielding an advanced War-Mech suit. It’s a very good looking game, but looks aren’t everything, and this game wouldn’t be one to judge by its cover. Implosion is an okay game covered in a pretty shell, and you should probably know what you’re getting into before you pick it up.
The Nintendo Switch lends itself perfectly to games based around a very simple set of controls, short bursts of multiplayer action, and – ultimately – fun. We’ve seen games such as De Mambo and Overcooked: Special Edition hit the Switch’s eShop in recent times, and they’re two great examples of this mantra. Bringing Rocket Fist to the console seems to be an attempt at continuing this trend, so let’s see if it’s a success.
