[REVIEW] Snake Pass

Snake Pass
Developer: Sumo Digital
Publisher: Sumo Digital
Available on: Nintendo Switch (reviewed), PS4, Xbox One, PC
Price: $19.99 USD

The folks at Sumo Digital have taken a novel approach to the beloved mascot platformer of the N64 era, in by which they’ve gone and removed jumping altogether. In Snake Pass, players control Noodle the snake and slither and weave their way through branches and blocks in order to locate three hidden gems. Every stage presents an increasingly difficult obstacle course to navigate, but underneath the game’s beautifully colorful exterior and charming characters lies a game whose enjoyment will be largely dependent on your ability to adapt and appreciate its frustrating control scheme.

A Platformer Without Jumping? Snake Pass Looks Awesome!

Set to release tomorrow for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, Sumo Digital’s Snake Pass explores the concept of navigating a world typically built for a platformer, but without the ability to jump.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ Has Some Neat Extras and Nods to Zelda

Twin-stick roguelike The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is one of the few physically released Nintendo Switch titles currently available at retail, and it’s the one I recommend picking up alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildContinue reading

So This Happened.

I desperately wanted to hold off until I found a neon Switch in stock somewhere, but my local GameStop had a few gray models behind the counter today. I’m weak.

They also had one last copy of The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, which comes with all sorts of neat stickers and a retro NES-style instruction booklet. I had a good time with the randomized roguelike on PS4 and look forward to dying repeatedly on the Switch. It’s basically a series of randomized Zelda dungeons, but with lots of poop, crying, and religious themes.

But now… now I can finally play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I may never see the light of day again. Unless, of course, I hate it.

I’d love to mingle with you folks on the ol’ Switch, so if you’d be so kind as to shoot me your friend code here in a comment or as a DM on Twitter @CheapBossAttack, that’d be great!
