Summary

Morphies Law: Remorphed on a basic level is a nice 3rd person shooter, it then adds in the ever crazy gimmick of increasing and decreasing players body parts, the results are hilarious and unique and does make the game stand out. Attach that to some very well thought out game modes and you have yourself a good time. You can pick up a controller and get going relatively quickly with minimum fuss and know-how. I like it as a game I dip into every now and then, having a gun that lets you spray the floor to boost allies but damage opponents mean I can also sneak in a little Splatoon love aswel. It’s rough in places however with a few janky clipping issues, slow respawn and game creation and a small online community. Iverallyi must say it plays the part and with its gimmick, it does deserve some attention but it just lacks the staying power. It is worth noting with the Switch version however that they did put a lot of “Switch only” features like motion control, Touchscreen and the dab handy separate controller options for docked and handheld, Fantastic version of the 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!
