Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is a game we covered a few months ago, just before its original release on PC, PS4 and Vita, but since it is now finally available on Nintendo Switch, we tought we'd quickly sum up why it's a game to play this summer. Enjoy the videos!
Note: The second video shows a boss after around 5 hours of gameplay.


On the plus side


+ Beautiful visuals and fantastic OST
+ The game world is a lot more interesting than you'd expect...
+ ... which also applies to the story
+ Another excellent metroidvania on Nintendo Switch
+ Bosses, bosses, bosses
+ Fun to play and smooth whether played on the TV or in handheld mode
+ Expect between 10 to 12 hours for your first playthrough


On the downside


- Some will find the game a bit too chatty
- The upgrade system is a bit disappointing

Gameplay #1 (Switch)

    KORNdog @Seth: that's a shame. I think it was a victim of its own hype. Was like the only good thing shown back when xbone was announced and then took forever to release. (4 Hours ago)

    Seth Also it doesn't help the fact how zoomed out is the camera. You barely see shit most of the time. Deleted it after 4 hours. -_- (17 Hours ago)

    Seth @Nietzsche: Below is the most monotonous game i have played in last years.The game want to be DS and survival game at the same time and fails at both of these things. (17 Hours ago)

    jmd749 @MrWhite: It's good free marketting for the game though. (21 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically, it was a hatchet job of a review, awarding it a 3/10. They realised they fucked up and pulled it sharpish. Damage was done, though. (21 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite of course, he was talking bollocks. Had he played it for more than 5 minutes, or spent more than 2 looking in the options for the settings, he could have sorted everything out, but he's clearly inept (21 Hours ago)
