If only the game was as interesting as the trailer…
Green Game: Timeswapper – Nintendo Switch – Released: 11/17/17 – $2.99
Short Review (Review copy provided by iFun4All)
This was a game that clearly was released out of order so I am just going to give my impressions before I played Red Game which was released several weeks later. Green Game Timeswapper is a pretty basic game with the ability to move time forward and back to mess with areas. This could mean opening up a vent or making the bird fly in the correction direction to process further. It is an interesting game but kind of eh to look at and very easy. I would consider this more a children’s game than an adult game but if you have $3 just lying around it isn’t that bad a purchase. It has 50 stages which is a nice amount for the price and since it is on the Switch there really isn’t anything like it. I wish it came with all the games in the series since it does seem to be missing story elements due to being broken down into 3 different games instead of one full game.
I actually really like this icon since it stands out because it looks weird:
The game begins with a cutscene that shows off this bird that has clearly made it through some sort of trial before with a red gear and now it is off to do green gear puzzles. A mysterious man transforms the bird into a timeswapper with the ability to go to the past, present and future. He then releases the bird into his machine(?) and has it do different challenges that deal with time manipulation. That’s it, nothing is really explain well but there is clearly a game missing that will likely be released at a later date.
You play the entire game with the touchscreen just wanted to point that out first and I can’t figure out how to use buttons if that is even possible.
I was able to finish the entire game without dying and there were 50 puzzles so it is worth the money if you want something to kill time but there are better games out there. I enjoyed playing it so don’t get me wrong but the game was clearly released out of order and by the time I wrote this review I didn’t play Red Game which is the first chapter of this game.
I would say go for it if you have spare cash on the eShop and want something really different. I do wish it was more exciting but for $3 you really can’t go wrong. It is really easy so I would think this is gear for more so for children. Green Game is an interesting concept I just wish it was released in order and came on a “Complete Collection” instead of breaking it down into three games.
I would give this game a 7 out of 10!
Pedro is away 😦 He did email me several reviews so those will be making their way out soon and I have 5 reviews set for this week including this one but I will be pushing to have a complete week either way up until the next year! I will be somewhat busy with the holiday season and we have two top 10 lists to put out for anyone that is interested in new games.
