Space Otter Charlie (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC)

In the future, humans have left Earth and now all the animals must fend for themselves.  When the weather gets too warm for otters, they build rockets to leave Earth to find other hospitable planets as well.  Join Charlie and his crew of otters as they explore abandoned space stations and other craft as they scrounge for parts and upgrades and maybe even find a new home for them and all their animal friends.  Play as Charlie in this unique 2-D platform action game where you ‘swim’ through anti-gravity space, sticking to walls and using thrusters to get around.  It’s actually a fairly unique concept and the game is pretty good and turned out a lot better than I thought.  Space Otter Charlie is available to download on most current consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

NEO GEO Pocket Color Selection vol. 1 (Switch)

Game maker SNK is known for their fighting games, but they also made their own consoles, like the NEO GEO and subsequent arcade machine.  When it came time for them to compete with Nintendo’s Game Boy Color, they brought out the NEO GEO Pocket Color.  This was a really awesome little handheld, and for a short while, I even liked it better than Nintendo’s portable offerings.  And now you can play a collection of ten NGPC games on the Switch!
