“1-2-Switch” Review

“1-2-Switch” Review

Showcasing different games that take advantage of the different features of the Nintendo Switch is always a great way to generate interest, and Nintendo does exactly this with 1-2-Switch. However, does this game have enough substance to make it a part of your Switch library?

Christian’s Top 5 Games of 2016

Christian’s Top 5 Games of 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, I hope that you had an overall amazing year as we kick off SmashPad’s Best of 2016. There were a lot of hits and a lot of duds. We got past franchises making their way to next-gen, the continued dominance of mobile gaming, and a peek as to what the future may hold. VR and 4K gaming seem to be the direction the industry of console gaming is heading in and it’s had a lukewarm […]

“Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure” Review

“Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure” Review

The game of dodgeball has survived the test of time but the video game translation always seems to be off the mark. Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure tries to refresh the classic game with gameplay that is simple to learn yet difficult to master. Pair that with the ever so popular style of cube characters, a la Minecraft, and it seems like a sure hit. Is this take on dodgeball one we should grab or avoid entirely?

“Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2” Review

“Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2” Review

The Plants vs. Zombies franchise takes us back to the lawn with the sequel to their popular shooter, Garden Warfare. It was a questionable move for the franchise, but because of the simple nature and price of the original, it was arguably the best valued game of 2014. Has the franchise found its place in the shooter genre or will Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 be the sequel we’ll all want to forget?

“The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes” Review

“The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes” Review

After seventeen titles, does The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes keep the same appeal that has allowed the franchise to be successful, or is the storied franchise running out of new ideas? Four Swords has shown us that having more than one Link can bring new elements to the table if done correctly. Is Tri Force Heroes the adventure the fans have been craving for, or just a gimmick that should be forgotten?

“Master Spy” Review

“Master Spy” Review

When you need something retrieved, who better to send in than the Master Spy? This precision platformer does its best impression of embodying everything it takes to be a spy and beautifully displays it in a fashion that will take you back to the past. Do you have what it takes to infiltrate a large cooperation without getting caught? Do you have what it takes to be a Master Spy? What Is It? Master Spy, at its core, is very reminiscent of platformers of […]

[E3 2015] “Super Mario Maker” Hands-On

[E3 2015] “Super Mario Maker” Hands-On

Though many were not too stoked about Nintendo highlighting this for E3, it is something that people should look forward to. During Nintendo’s Digital Event, Shigeru Miyamoto got in to the rich history of Mario and everything that it took to build the franchise to the level it is at today. He went into the details of creating stages and the joy and excitement that process was and what better way then to be able to share that with us than with Super […]
