  • Hands On Getting Arty In Yoshi's Crafted World On Nintendo Switch

    Where there's a will, there's a PVA

    When we first clapped eyes on Yoshi’s Crafted World, we’d be lying if we said our first thoughts weren’t something along the lines of ‘oh look, another Yoshi game’. That’s not to say we didn’t like what we saw, but the Yoshi series has always played things a little bit safe in the past, and at first...

  • News Turned-Based Mulitplayer Racer Fromto Is Coming To Switch This Year

    The drawing board comes to life

    Now this looks interesting. Half racing game, half demeted physics puzzler, Fromto is a turn-based racer. Players construct the track in build rounds and then challenge each other with ever trickier designs and alterations. It appears that you all race the same track, so while it's all very adding ridiculous obstacles...

    No referees, no rules, just goals!

    If you were a fan of the arcade sports action found in Super Mario Strikers for the GameCube, you might be wondering why Nintendo hasn't given us a sequel yet, given the popularity of football (or soccer) across the globe. Stepping into the void, Spanish developer Xaloc Studios will soon be bringing Super Kickers...

    (In the west, at least)

    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is one of the most beloved entries in the entire Zelda series, so it's little surprise that the announcement that Nintendo is remaking it for the Switch caused such a stir. The 1993 original remains a masterclass in adventure game design, and we personally cannot wait to get our hands on...

  • Video We Weren't Sure We Wanted A Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake, Until We Got It

    Be careful what you (don't) wish for?

    One of the biggest reveals of last week's Nintendo Direct was Zelda: Link's Awakening, a remake of the 1993 Game Boy classic that's coming to Switch later this year. Link's Awakening is one of the most beloved entries in the entire series, so it was, on paper, an obvious candidate for the remake treatment. Even...

All platform allegiances aside, these are two of the finest first-person physics puzzlers ever committed to ones and zeros. Fortunately, they're also two of the most influential.
