Kamiko Nintendo Switch Review

What is Kamiko?

Kamiko is a pixel art style RPG type game. It is very short, like beat in 1 hour short. But the price of $5 makes it tolerable.

 

What makes Kamiko so great?

Kamiko is a fantastic game. Why so? Because it is so simple, yet complex. You can choose between 3 types of main characters. I chose to use the sword and shield character as my first play through. The goal of the game is to traverse through the levels defeating enemies and solving puzzles. The puzzles aren’t hard. Basically, find the key and door or find the orbs type puzzles. The combat is what is so enticing. It harks back to the original Legend of Zelda games. At the end of each level is a boss fight each with their own “puzzle” of defeat. Each character has a different way of defeating the boss due to each character you can choose has a different fight style.

What makes Kamiko NOT so great?

There is not much replayability. Basically, three times at most.

My Conclusion

Other than the issue above, I really enjoyed it. It is simple, straight to the point, and reasonably priced.

Pros:

  • Great Nostalgia
  • Lovely retro art style
  • Great Music
  • Priced Correctly

Cons:

  • Can get repetitive quick

Score: 8/10
