My Friend Pedro (Switch) Review

Blood. Bullets. Bananas

Some games focus on either style or substance. Devolver Digital and Deadtoast Entertainment’s My Friend Pedro exudes both in a riveting display of blood, bullets, and bananas. Despite being a 2D platformer, the game is packed with cinematic action, thanks to slow-motion effects and an agile, masked gunman. It’s basically The Matrix meets Deadpool, except the protagonist remains silent while his friend Pedro, a sentient banana, makes all the wisecracks. The potassium-rich accomplice also orders our hero to take out everyone in his path, which, aside from some twists, comprises the strange story.

Lapis x Labyrinth (Switch) Review

Literal Treasure Explosion

Playing Lapis x Labyrinth is the equivalent of entering a glitzy casino and witnessing every slot machine simultaneously explode with coins. There’s a dazzling aura to this 2D hack-and-slash action RPG, and cute, hyperactive visuals feed into its eye-catching wackiness.

BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! (Switch) Review

Box Meets Girl

Against all odds, Kirby series developer HAL Laboratory and Nintendo’s hero has finally returned – yes, good old BoxBoy. It’s hard to blame anyone for not being familiar with BoxBoy!, which spawned a trilogy of 3DS games and even an amiibo figurine. Although the last game’s title was Bye-Bye BoxBoy!, the creators saw fit to continue the series with BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! on the Nintendo Switch, which also marks the franchise’s debut on consoles.

Unravel Two (Switch) Review

Epic Yarny

I’ve had my fair share of wonderful memories handing a Joy-Con controller to my wife and enjoying a game together. Co-op games are well-suited to the Nintendo Switch, and Swedish developer Coldwood and EA’s Unravel Two is no exception. The puzzle platformer costars sentient yarn creatures called Yarny, who can, fittingly, be customized and color-coded to match the Switch’s Joy-Con colors.

Yoshi’s Crafted World (Switch) Review

Handled With Care

Good-Feel is known for developing visually unique platformers like Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Yoshi’s Woolly World. Its latest platformer Yoshi’s Crafted World once again stars Mario’s dinosaur buddy, except this time he ventures courses entirely designed as arts-and-crafts projects come to life.
