GLYPH NINTENDO SWITCH Review

A while ago I had the pleasure of reviewing Glyph for PC for the more indepth review take a look here

Recently I was very kindly sent a code for Glyph on Nintendo Switch, I will take a look at the differences in how the game plays on this system.

Gameplay

In terms of actual gameplay there is nothing really different in terms of how the game plays, the main difference for me is the game seems smoother, seems like it was made for the Nintendo Switch the controls kind of felt better.

The main aim of the game is to navigate around various courses without falling off the edges, each course getting harder as they go on. The game sounds easy enough but you will find that navigating around these courses is tricky, but not to the point of putting you off the game, it definitely has that “just one more go” feel to it.

The controls of the Nintendo Switch give you more control of the little ball for me personally I found the gameplay was far better suited to this style rather than keyboard and mouse, although the PC set up was reasonably easy to pick up I found the traditional analogue stick and buttons alot easier to deal with.

It was great to revisit this title as 8 had alot of fun with it on PC the first time round, this time the added benefit of being able to take it with me was a great touch.

Graphics and Sound

I didn’t see alot of difference in the quality of graphics between the PC version or the Switch version, if anything the Switch version may have been a bit sharper, still a very impressive looking game without doubt.

I still liked the soundtrack I felt it gave the game that mystical feel and worked well, the in game sounds are a great quality really giving a good experience to the gamer.

Summary

To summarise my thoughts on Glyph, a great game in its own right, I felt that it worked slighty better on the Switch version, although that may be a personal preference.

Verdict-Out of 5🌟

🌟🌟🌟🌟

Good

I give Glyph on Nintendo Switch 4🌟 a good title with lots to do and loads of puzzles to solve, a great addition to the collection for any puzzler.

GLYPH Review

Info

Developed/Published By: Bolverk Games.

Platforms Available On: PC and Nintendo Switch-reviewed on PC.

A code was very kindly supplied for the purpose of this review.

Overview

Glyph’s gameplay combines breathtaking aerial maneuvers with tranquil exploration in a stunning 3D platforming experience. Add a mesmerizing original soundscape, and Glyph is lifting you up and whisking you away.

Gameplay

If you like platform/puzzle games with a bit of parkour thrown in then you’re probably in the right place, Glyph offers a tranquil twist to the norm of what you would normally expect from a platformer but still bringing that addictive gameplay you would expect from this type of game.

Thanks to Anobi who woke you from your slumber, you are tasked with finding The Lost Temple of Aaru, you will use your new found body and it’s ball shape to roll around the game world using Portals to make your way through the world.

In a similar theme to The Floor is Lava you can’t come off the track as the sand is deadly, it can get a little tricky to maneuver round the tighter corners but it can be done.

Although the gameplay itself can be tricky that really is all part of the fun and although you will die numerous times you literally won’t want to put it down it really has that effect on you, it definitely has that “one more go” factor about it.

Combine the normal gameplay with the regular challenges the developers put out for the community over on their Discord channel there definitely is a longevity to this game, as in you never really complete the game there is always something to do.

Graphics and Sound

The graphics of Glyph are surprisingly good with a detailed backdrop and a captivating visual style you can’t help but fall in love with this game, it certainly is beautiful to look at.

The mesmerising soundtrack only adds to the atmosphere and adds more depth to the gameplay, all the ingame sound effects are very well planned out and feel authentic adding more to the gameplay.

Summary

To summarise my thoughts of Glyph, a captivating fun ride rolling adventure well worth checking out if you like 3D platformers.

Verdict – Out of 5🌟

🌟🌟🌟🌟

Excellent

A good family friendly platformer well worth adding to your , would recommend to anyone who likes a platformer/puzzler.
