Super Metboy Review (Nintendo Switch)

Our Super Metboy Review introduces the world to this casual arcade action title in which you defeat enemies with his MET BLADE. When you press the action button, METBOY fires a blade, which can cause damage to enemies as he jumps around. A wave is cleared when you defeat a certain number of enemies. After that, a boss will appear.

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!
