Ungh’s Quest is one of those games that on the one hand I appreciate finding its place on the Switch but on the other it’s hard not to be a bit frustrated by. There’s a certain entertaining family-friendly quality to it, with its point and click adventure nature not being too crazy difficult but also not stupidly simple either. Throw in the cute animated quality that certainly features some elaborate characters and environments and it looks great as well. Where I struggled mightily with it though was its insistence on forcing pointer controls… something that worked far better in the IR days of the Wii but not so well with the Switch. The endless cycle of finding yourself contorting to get the pointer where you want it as it drifts and then having to recenter really highlights one of the system’s greatest failings. Throw on the fact that initially the game really gives you no guidance on what you’re doing or how to play and it’s a good family game that gets in its own way a bit too much to be enthusiastic about it.
