Over the past two years the 3DS e-shop has quietly matured into a home for a number of high calibre games. Sneaking in at the tail end of 2012 was Way Forward’s Mighty Switch Force, the tale of cyborg enforcer Patricia Wagon and her attempt to round-up some naughty escaped prisoners.
The game’s challenging combination of action, puzzling and platforming made it an immediate hit and an early flag bearer for the console’s downloadable service. It also made waves due to its retro aesthetic and genuinely effective use of 3D. 8/10
