Super Kirby Clash (Switch)

A few weeks ago, Nintendo surprised everyone with a new free-to-start online Switch game, and it was a Kirby title as well!  Kirby is one of my number one favorite Nintendo franchises, so of course I’m going to download it and review it!  Super Kirby Clash is an enhanced version of Team Kirby Clash, which was originally a mini-game found in one of the 3DS Kirby titles, and later got a separate Deluxe version you could download on the 3DS eShop.  If you combined Kirby boss battles with RPG aspects, this is basically what you get.  For some reason, it also makes me think of Kirby meets Monster Hunter.

Newt One (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC)

Newt is a…well, I’m not really sure what she is.  A musical note?  A bug?  Well, she’s some kind of critter who lives in a world of music and color, but one day The Great Slumber arrives and removes all the color and music from the world.  Newt has the power to bring color back to everything she touches, and now she must save her world in this totally non-violent 3-D platformer.  Newt One is available to download on all current consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

Heave Ho (Switch, PC)

In this game, you control a critter who is just a head with two arms sticking out.  You move these guys in a 2-D area, and use the L and R sticks to wave their arms.  When their hands are near a platform, you can hold down the L or R shoulder buttons to make them grab on to it.  Then you can swing around to nearby platforms, or even launch them and use their trajectory to reach faraway ones.  In a way it kind of reminds me of DK: King of Swing and Jungle Climber.  You must help these creatures reach a bowl-shaped goal to pass the level.  Heave Ho is available to download on Nintendo Switch and PC, but reviewed on Switch here.

While True: Learn () (Mobile, PC)

I never pass up the chance to review educational games.  I’ve always had an interest in them, and it baffles me why some companies shy away from calling their games educational.  I’ve reviewed everything from games that introduce preschoolers to early concepts as well as ones that teach math skills to elementary school students.  But it’s clear the way of the future is with computers, and if you want a way to make it big, it’s important to get a head start in programming and coding.  So that’s why I’m pleased to see a game like While True: Learn ().  Yes that’s the title.  It teaches logic skills used in programming and coding in a visual way.  It’s available on mobile devices and PC, but reviewed on iPad here.

Hot Wheels: Infinite Loop (Mobile)

Hot Wheels toy cars have delighted kids for many a generation.  Heck, even I played with them when I was little.  I had a foldable Hot Wheels garage playset that I played with all the time.  One of my brothers had a Hot Wheels track that had a volcano that the cars would race up on.  We took the loop at the top out so the cars would shoot straight up to the living room ceiling!  Heck, even recently I saw Hot Wheels Mario Kart cars and tracks.  I was tempted to get them, but I didn’t!  But now there is a mobile racing game that captures the imagination of Hot Wheels cars and tracks with Hot Wheels: Infinite Loop.  It’s available free to play for most mobile devices, but reviewed on iPad here.

Where the Bees Make Honey (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC)

This game is just…weird.  One minute you’re in a 3-D first person view looking for office supplies in a maze of cubicles, next you’re a girl in a wintery forest searching for giant bicycle parts, and next you’re a bunny hopping around the wilderness while grocery store sounds play in the background.  The changes in play style are so abrupt, it almost feels like a fever dream.  And now that I’ve got you curious enough to read the rest of the review, Where the Bees Make Honey is available to download on all current consoles, but reviewed on PS4 here.
