St. Patrick’s Day is the next holiday coming up, but it’s your lucky day today as I’ve got more game reviews I’ve recently written over at for you to look at!  Please click on the links and read as many as you can, and maybe post a ‘like’ or comment or two.  I’d appreciate it.  OK let’s begin!

Suika Game (Switch)

Late last year, there was a game that came out on Nintendo Switch that caused a buzz on the Internet, or so they say.  Especially in Japan (Suika means watermelon in Japanese), and people were saying it was “Japan’s hardest game” and such.  I tried to get a review code for it when it initially came out, but never got a response.  But a little while later, Nintendo was offering this game as a free limited time download for subscribers, so I decided to check it out then and write a quick review.  I think you can also play this game on some mobile devices and Internet browsers, but it’s reviewed on Switch here.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 amiibo

Got some new amiibo figures recently, this time a two pack of Noah and Mio from Xenoblade Chronicles 3.  So let’s check them out!

Saga of the Moon Priestess (PS4)

My number one favorite Zelda game is Link’s Awakening, so when I got the opportunity to review a game that mimics that Game Boy classic, I was pretty excited.  In Saga of the Moon Priestess, a prince has been kidnapped and you play as a girl who can talk to the moon goddess and must rescue him.  You’ll travel through an overworld and tromp through five different dungeon mazes in top down 2D fashion to get him back.

The Legend of Steel Empire (Switch)

Steel Empire was a 2-D shooter on the SEGA Genesis.  The unique thing about it was the premise, as all the flying vehicles were blimps and steam powered machines.  Kind of a Jules Verne steampunk vibe.  It got remade on the Game Boy Advance and then again on the 3DS.  And now it gets another remake on the Switch (reviewed here) and coming soon to the PS4.

The Smurfs: Colorful Stories (Switch)

In the distant past, long before streaming services and 24-hour cartoon channels, there was a thing called Saturday Morning Cartoons.  Kids back then, me included, looked forward to this time because it was one of the only times TV was made just for kids.  And as a child of the 80s, one of the most popular of these cartoons I remember was The Smurfs.  Originally a European comic strip, The Smurfs gained popularity in the US from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon.  I was never a super big fan of it, but I watched it anyway because, one, kids will watch pretty much anything.  And two, it came on right before the Pac-Man cartoon.  In recent years, The Smurfs have had a bit of a resurgence with a handful of computer animated movies and specials, and a new series on Nickelodeon.  And there’s been a few Smurfs video games I’ve reviewed in the past couple of years, like a kart racer and two 3D platformers.  And now the youngest players get their turn on the Switch with The Smurfs: Colorful Stories, a virtual coloring book on the Switch.

nGolf (Switch)

nGolf is a basic top down viewed mini-golf game for Nintendo Switch.  Travel to eight different themed worlds: Egyptian, Ice, Amusement Park, Italian Town, Beach, Farm, Japanese Garden, and Magical Forest.  Each world has eight holes for you to tackle. 

8 Colors Star Guardians + (Switch)

Giant alien bosses are invading Earth and it’s up to five young heroines to transform into Power Ranger-like characters (complete with their own color) to fight the baddies.  8 Color Star Guardians + lets you choose from 8 bosses in any order, like Mega Man, and then you fight them in turn based RPG fashion.  The game is also presented in only 8 colors, so it reminds me of those old computer monitors.

Nephenthesys (PS4)

This is a pretty standard vertically scrolling 2D shooter.  There’s a story here, but it’s not very important.  Just pilot your spaceship as you zap everything that moves and avoid getting hit.

And that’s all for now!  Thanks for reading and posting ‘likes’ and comments on my reviews.  I really do appreciate it.  Later!  --Cary

I love the graphics on Steel Empire and Moon Priestess.

The Jules Verne steampunk premise in Steel Empire is what makes it stand out.  I love how Moon Priestess looks like Link's Awakening, I just wish it wasn't so buggy!
