Make no mistake, Treasure Stack is a true jewel of a puzzle game, with charm pouring out of every moment. It nails the feel it’s shooting for perfectly, and the cast of ridiculous unlockables are icing on the cake. I just wish that cake came in a few different flavours, as I got pretty tired of the repetitive single player mode by the end.
Instant Tennis is perfectly at home on Switch. It’s a party game at its core - so don’t expect anything too much in way of depth - but there’s plenty of options available in terms of courts and characters to offer a good time if you’ve got people round for a gaming evening.
In adding an exceptional level of polish to a wide yet perfectly balanced mix of units, Swords & Soldiers II sets the standard for Tower Defence games. The myriad combinations of numerous unit types, all with their own unique characteristics, makes every bout a fresh and interesting one, and finding new ways to beat old friends and new opponents alike won’t get old for a long time.
Kingdom Two Crowns is a deeply enthralling game and an almost hypnotising rabbit hole of discoveries - if you have the patience to find them. While it rewards your exploration, it never corrects your mistakes, and it’s often frustrating to repeat your previous work to come to the same conclusion. But if you dig deep into every element and have an eye for what each item can do, Kingdom Two Crowns will offer some truly satisfying thrills.
