Summary

Race to the top of the mountain and beat your opponent to grab the gem! That’s your sole goal in Super Hiking League DX. A Colourful game is full of crazy antics and clever level design. Armed with a bat and a rope you can swing and launch yourself all over the place. In truth I found this to be a proper feel-good game, the mechanics are simple but combined with the competition aspect it’s definitely one of the better multiplayer games on the Switch. I did the whole arcade mode in one sitting as I just couldn’t put it down. I love the filters to add a retro look (some work better than others) and the presentation, on the whole, was that of fun and charm. You would buy Super Hiking League DX for something new or a new local mp game. My only complaint is it needed more content, online and proper leaderboards but I shall hold out for a sequel. This game makes me happy.

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!
