Review Round-Up - October 2019

It made be hard to bee-lieve, but just like clearing the Impossible Lair, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
bee-ing SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Month is quite the possible feat!
While lacking in gaming frights over the ghoulish month of October (I'm saving those for November), SuperPhillip Central did scare up a wide range of review scores over the past month with its six games reviewed. We started off with a duo of platformers, one 3D, the other 2D. Spyro Reignited Trilogy finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch after a yearlong wait, earning an A-. Meanwhile, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair made the impossible possible and got Game of the Month credentials with its A grade.

Moving on to some smaller projects, Game Freak's Little Town Hero had a creative and quirky battle system, but it may be too involved for most players. That's why I gave the game a C+. Our lowest scored game of the month got a D, and that was CoreCell Technologies' AeternoBlade II, specifically the Switch version.

Finally, rounding things up for this Review Round-Up were a pair of free-to-play games. Super Kirby Clash declared war on the sinister do-badders of Dream Land, getting a B for its troubles, while Asphalt 9: Legends surprised and drifted its way to a B+.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy (NSW) - A-
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (PS4, NSW, XB1, PC) - A
Little Town Hero (NSW) - C+
AeternoBlade II (NSW) - D
Super Kirby Clash (NSW) - B
Asphalt 9: Legends (NSW) - B+

Free-to-play is here to stay, and on the Nintendo Switch, that's not necessarily a bad thing
if the games are like Super Kirby Clash and Asphalt 9: Legends.
