Survival games have really come in a wide variety of forms on the Switch and Aground may be one of the most basic of the bunch. You’ll pretty quickly progress through different phases and technologies as you move about digging, chopping, and whacking away to collect materials you’ll need to complete quests and craft new equipment. Compared to most titles your progression will be pretty quick, and to the game’s credit it’s quite surprising how far the technology tree will go given your time and patience so that can help to keep things evolving at a brisk pace. That said, there’s no denying that while your specific actions and what you collect may change at the core the experience and your moment by moment activities won’t change all that makes, making a sense of repetition set in. If you’re looking for more of a lightweight survival title that can be satisfying, even if not terribly deep, you may find this to be worth your while though.
