Rejoice, fellow twin-stick shooter fans, as the genre seems to be enjoying a sort of renaissance at the moment thanks to passionate indie developers and the consoles that help facilitate their creativity.

And thank goodness for that, because RIVE is one of those arcade titles that feel tailor-made for the Switch, especially in handheld mode. Not only is it easy to pick up, but its polished mechanics and charming platform areas will keep you wanting more. Word of warning however: this game can be brutally challenging and is not for the faint-hearted!

At first glance, Rive may seem like your typical indie side-scrolling platformer, but “the metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter” certainly has more to offer. This game is so explosively action-packed that it is not surprisingly made by the same indie studio that brought the Worms series to life, Two Tribes. This “360-degree shooter” allows you to interact with your environment and destroy pretty much everything in your path aside from permanent structures. A word of caution, not all things should be destroyed and may end up harming you! The most unique feature is perhaps the hacking, which allows you to take over your enemies and exploit them to your benefit.
