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)

    nostradamus @Seth: that seems... tame? (2 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Personally i'll recommend Dead Cells or Enter the Gungeon over a bottom tier rogielike with survival elements. (13 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Below is really hardcore game. It makes you looking in the dark for your lantern each time you die by a trap that is impossible to see. Sometimes you lose like 20 mins until you find it. (13 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @b0vril: As much as i like Red Dead, R* made the pacing for this one too slow. Half the time it felt like i was playing a cinematic. Most side missions felt more interesting than the story. (16 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @toelessfoot: that's probably the best way to go. I didn't find the story or it's missions all that great. (20 Hours ago)
