Snipperclips: Cut it Out Together!


One of my favorite things about the Nintendo Switch is how many wonderful indie games I've been discovering through the eStore. On release day, there were two games we started with. One of course being the main popular title Breath of the Wild, and the other- Snipperclips. I've seen tons of reviews for Breath of the Wild and I can't help but wonder, why is nobody talking about Snipperclips?

Snipperclips is a wonderful game in many different aspects. I remember seeing the title for this game before launch and thinking how dumb and childish it looked. When I saw that first gameplay of Snipperclips on Twitch I was so surprised and headed over to the eStore to try it myself. I am so glad I gave it that chance because it is probably one of the most unique multiplayer games I've played in a very long time.


The idea behind Snipperclips is that you are both paper people, and you have to cut each other to accomplish certain tasks. This could range anywhere from putting a pencil into a pencil sharpener, or putting a ball through a hoop. A lot of times you must work together with your partner in order to cut each other into certain shapes- and that's where things get interesting.

This game can be played single player, but the multiplayer is where the fun is. Snipperclips can have anywhere from 1-4 players all on the same screen. I actually played with my brother this weekend while waiting in line at a convention and we had a blast.


Trying to work together in order to beat each level is hilarious. The faces the characters make and even the way their legs move will constantly keep you laughing. Sometimes however, those laughs may turn into frustration. Not all of these levels are easy! As you go through each world, the puzzles progressively get more difficult. There was one recently that took a good twenty minutes to solve- so if you're worried about this being too childish and easy, don't be.

Have I still not convinced you to give Snipperclips a try? There is a free demo available on the eStore so that you can try it before you buy it! The full game is only priced at $20 so when compared to the $50 price tag on 1, 2, Switch- the winner is obvious.


__________________________
If I had to assign Snipperclips a score out of 10, I'd give it a solid 7.0. The only reason it didn't score higher is because there really isn't much to this game. No story, no character progression, it's just a really solid multiplayer game. But don't let that deter you from giving it a try!

Hand that Joy Con to your nearest friend and see what Snipperclips is all about!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap: Old Gem to You, New Gem to Me

I found myself recently craving a new game to play on my Nintendo Switch. I had just finished Super Mario Odyssey (yes I took a long time to finish it, I'm a busy person- don't judge) and I had absolutely nothing new to reach for next! After a brief glance at the eShop sale section I saw Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap on sale for a mere $9.99. I'd heard great things about it from the various video game podcasts that I listen to, but like many reviews that are done with free review copies- I took their opinions with a grain of salt. After a bit of an eternal debate, I took the plunge and never looked back. And wow am I glad that I did! Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap  may be new to me, but it definitely isn't a new game. It originally made it's debut on the Sega Master System in 1989 as Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap . As someone who wasn't even alive at that time, I'd never even heard of the Sega Master System let alone Wonder Boy III . Wond

Monster Hunter World: An Honest Review

Let me start out by saying that until a few years ago Monster Hunter was one of those games that I could watch for hours on streaming sites but it just seemed too complicated to learn myself. I can't count the number of times I download demos on the Nintendo 3DS and gave up because I couldn't kill the easiest monster in the game. Many YouTube videos and hours of reading later I finally felt knowledgeable enough to purchase the full version and dive in. Does this sound like you? If so let me put it simply- this game will welcome you with open arms. Monster Hunter: World is easily the most newbie friendly entry in the series. Are there still a lot of mechanics to learn? Yes. But the system as a whole has been redone in a way that just works. Even my husband, whom I've tried to get playing for years, has sunk his teeth into this title and is playing through the story. If you're on the fence- don't be. Plain and simple. Now that we have that out the way let&

Monster Hunter World: 10 Tips for Beginners

Unless you've been under a rock you've probably noticed that Monster Hunter World is a huge hit right now. The game has shipped 5 million copies worldwide and has already sold 1.3 million copies in the United States. While this installment is much friendlier to newcomers than past titles there is still a large chunk of the game that you are left to figure out on your own. Even as someone who has put ~400 hours into the monster hunter series over the last few years I found it took even me a few hours to get comfortable with all the new features. If you find yourself a bit overwhelmed, hopefully this list can help you out a bit! 1.) Don't Let the Timer Scare You All quests in Monster Hunter are timed, however I RARELY ever have problems completing the quest in time. There is plenty of time to complete quests in the 50 allotted minutes so don't panic watching the clock tick down. 2.) Upgrade Often at the Forge It is very easy to get caught up in the momen
