Summary

League of evil is a fun game and plays really well on the Switch. It is made for fans who want to push their limits and get a speedrun on. It is a smart little game and the level editor whilst powerful, Adds a long of life to the game and in my eyes really saves it. With a small download size and approachable mentality, it will be very hard not to fall for it in some way. In short, it is a great little game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
