I love video games and I've been playing them since I was 4. I like making lists and writing little reviews on here for fun.

I mostly play on Nintendo Switch, but I also play games for PC, GameCube, Wii, Wii U, GBA, DS, 3DS, PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. I plan on eventually getting a PS5 and a Playdate.

A fun and hilarious mystery solving game that is about the same length as a movie. I love the humor and the characters. The voice acting adds a lot of life to the game. It was really fun to put clues together and make deductions, though it is sometimes difficult and the hint system comes in handy. I thought the ending was abrupt and left some loose ends, and I wish the characters would have been explored more. Hopefully this game will be the first in a series.

A cute idle-type game where you customize the terrain in a cube-shaped world and watch life evolve. You start with plankton in the water and go through the evolution of life on Earth, with the end goal in story mode being to evolve humans. There is also a "free mode" with no goal, but it is rendered unplayable by a bug that prevents anything other than plankton from evolving unless you want to spend hours placing water tiles one by one.

As another reviewer said, the story scenarios seem to have sad endings and I'm not sure if there's a way to get better ones. The credits roll after beating one of the four story scenarios, which takes 1.5 to 2 hours. Alongside having bugs, the game throws a lot of lengthy tutorial text at you that often explains obvious things or things you've already been told.

The highlight of this game is definitely watching the life in your environment. The plants and animals have a charming toy-like look to them. They're not exactly scientifically accurate, and a lot of animals are recolors of one another, but they are adorable. It's also fun whenever a new lifeform evolves in your world - celebratory music plays and you can find it and "capture" it to earn experience points. If this game sounds relaxing to you/you're a sucker for evolution games like I am (though there are better ones out there) and you don't mind it being rough around the edges, it's worth checking out on sale. I also think this game could be useful for teaching kids the basics of evolution.

I dislike roguelikes and didn't have much desire to do any more runs after I beat the final boss for the first time, but I'm always happy for more Splatoon singleplayer content and lore, and I'm especially happy that Pearlina is canon.
