  • It has been pretty fascinating to play a variety of titles from the very apparently mighty retro portable, the Neo Geo Pocket Color. While most of the time these titles have been either some sort of fighter or an arcade-style port of some kind, it’s nice to see some other more unique offerings come along here and there as well. Biomotor Unitron is one such title, and with its solid pixel art and attempts at telling a more grand story it was probably a well-appreciated turn-based RPG that helped flesh out some variety in the platform’s library. That said, thrown into the very crowded waters of the Switch eShop it’s no doubt flailing to keep its head above water, as there’s nothing so unique or distinctive about it that it can overcome the obvious gap in time and technology its experience represents on a modern console. I’d imagine people who originally had it may get a great nostalgic hit from it, and can respect that, but for everyone else it’s likely going to be a pass.
