GAMES RE­VIEWS Bright bat­tle royale with Fort­nite flavour

Nin­jala Switch

●●●●●

Fort­nite’s pop­u­lar­ity has led to an on­slaught of bat­tle royale ri­vals in re­cent years — and it now feels like the Switch has one of its own in Nin­jala.

As ever in this genre, the aim is to reign supreme against a group of other play­ers on­line — up to eight par­tic­i­pants fight it out in an arena.

The bright, bold vi­su­als and bub­ble-gum be­ing one of your prin­ci­ple weapons, make for a more child-friendly ex­pe­ri­ence on the sur­face but the skill re­quired to win is a lot more full on.

In par­tic­u­lar, it can seem im­pos­si­ble to over­come an at­tack when it comes your way.

That said, at least you are able to respawn and build up your points again within sec­onds.

The rel­a­tively short play time re­ally ramps up the pace in what makes for a great free-to-play ti­tle. There is also a sin­gle play mode but you will have to pay for this one and, frankly, you’re better off in the mul­ti­player arena.

In all, it’s a wel­come ad­di­tion to the genre and adds new flavour and bright­ness into the mix, though the fight­ing el­e­ments could do with de­vel­op­ment.
