Infendo Review: Super Mario Bros. The Movie

Trust the Fun, Gus! On May 28th of this year, the infamous Super Mario Bros. movie celebrated its 25th anniversary, to very little fanfare. At the time of its release, it was harshly panned by critics and fans of the games, and practically disavowed by both the studio that produced it — the now-defunct Hollywood Pictures (a division of the Walt Disney Company) — and Nintendo, who officially licens...

Review of Gamer’s House Arcade Bracket Kit for Nintendo Switch

Huh… Just a Box When Nintendo introduced Labo to the world earlier this year, people saw so many possiblities. Some saw a creative new way to play video games. Some saw a return of the useless peripherals from the Wii era. Others saw a cheap way to make fast money on cardboard. I’m not sure which of these three things Gamer’s House saw when they developed and released the Arcade Bracke...

Infendo Review – The Way Remastered (Switch)

The Way Remastered - Final Opinion All that aside, The Way Remastered is really enjoyable. The gameplay, while not complex or overly engaging, keeps you thinking and feels very fluid and natural. The story is touching and well written. It's clear the developer had something they wanted to get out through this game. There's a lot to like about this game, if you go into it with the right mindset. I...

Infendo Review – The Way Remastered (Switch)

Do You Know The Way? The Way Remastered is, you guess it, a remastered version of the 2016 PC  game The Way. The game is best described as a puzzle/platformer, usually requiring the player to explore specific, unique areas to progress. There’s a lot to experience in this title if that sounds like your cup of tea, but does it work on a broader scale? That will largely depend of your tastes fo...

Infendo Review: Danmaku Unlimited 3 (Switch)

This diversity in gameplay choices works to this game's favour, essentially creating a game that is welcoming to beginners of the genre, while still providing a substantial challenge for bullet hell masters. A beautiful presentation and one of the best soundtracks currently on the Switch only add to this game's positive attributes. While obviously a difficult genre to jump into, this title stands ...

Infendo Review: WanderjahR TryAgainOrWalkAway

What I played of it I absolutely adored. I love the variety of enemies and the humor of the game. It is bright, colorful, and it's so much fun to see a well thought out strategy come to fruition. But, it is a hardcore strategy game that will require a lot of planning, strategizing, and a bit of luck, which I simply did not have. I mentioned on Infendo Radio Episode 429 that I was pleasantly surpri...

Infendo Review: WanderjahR TryAgainOrWalkAway

It’s no secret that there are a plethora of games available on the Switch. Every week, we get anywhere from five to twenty new games. And, unfortunately, it can be very difficult to sort out the good from the bad sometimes. One that should not be ignored, is WanderjahR. As far as the genre goes, this one is a little bit tough to describe. It is definitely an RPG. You have a team of four char...

Infendo Review – World To The West (Switch)

World to the West is an odd game. A top down adventure game featuring four playable heroes, the game attempts to capture on the charm of games like A Link To The Past, while calling on the multiple-heroes gameplay reminiscent of Donkey Kong 64. Each character has their own unique skills that allow them to accomplish their own tasks, which ultimately leads to a combined resolution of the goal at ha...

Celeste Mountain: Risk the Climb

If there is any indie game you choose to support this year, or any year in fact, let that choice be Celeste. This game deserves all the praise it receives and more. It's simple to grasp and difficult to master game mechanics tie in beautifully with a heart-breaking story of overcoming your inner demons, all while offering a true joy within yourself at your ability to conquer what seems impossib...

Celeste Mountain: Risk the Climb

“This is it, Madeline. Just breathe. Why are you so nervous?” These are the words that greet you when you start up Celeste, a narrative-driven single player precision platformer developed and published by Matt Makes Games. You would be wise to keep these words safeguarded in your mind as you make your climb up the game’s namesake mountain as Madeline; a young woman that suffers from panic at...

A Rainbow of Thoughts: Link-A-Pix Color for 3DS Review

Link-A-Pix Color is a puzzle game available for download on the 3DS eShop. Retailing for $7.99, this is a very reasonably priced game. At first glance, one might blow this off as a simple Picross clone. This is very inaccurate from what you actually get. This game sees you on a grid. Inside this grid are numbers of different colors. The number itself represents the number of connected blocks of th...
