Tiny Hands Adventure
Switch version tested
Review code provided
If you’re not one for reading allow me to save you some time, Tiny Hands Adventure on the Nintendo Switch is the worst game I have played in recent memory. Intrigued by that statement? Then read on.
Imagine Crash Bandicoot, the first one. It had its problems but it was a decent first try, and as the series progressed the games got better. Now imagine Crash Bandicoot half-finished, with the worst, and I mean the most supremely worst collision detection you have ever witnessed. Set the game out over twenty bland levels, with a couple of boss fights and puzzles stitched together with an uninspiring storyline. Then to top it off, throw in some seventies game show music and a big blue turd of a main character. Now you have Tiny Hands Adventure.
I don’t wish to put a downer on someone’s parade after all someone has spent a lot of their own time creating this unpleasant attempt of a game, but bash me it is bad. The eShop is fast becoming the Steam of the console world, there is naff all in the way of quality control whatsoever. Nintendo used to have a seal of quality, now it appears as though they have adopted a Google Play/App store mentality in shovelling as much as possible in front of the consumers and see what sticks. Shame on you Nintendo and shame on the developers of this half-finished attempt at a game.
I let my six-year-old play this before me, and as I sat and watched him play, I thought, my god you’re bad at games. He kept falling from platforms to his death and getting killed by enemies because he was walking straight into them. I thought I will prise the controller from his hand and show him how it’s done. No such struggle took place, he handed me the controller and said “Daddy I don’t like it, it’s not very good” now whilst these were the limited descriptive words of a six-year-old, he was spot on.
Honestly writing anything else about this game is a waste of your time and mine. It’s a platform game and it’s not very good, there are much better options available on the eShop if you can find them.
