  • Budget platformers have become somewhat a dime a dozen out there on the Switch, but when you’re in a pinch and looking for some time they aren’t always a bad option. The previous iteration of FoxyLand debuted on the Switch not very long ago at all, and proved to be a decent, if somewhat generic, game in terms of mechanics and challenge. This sequel has quite a lot in common, in particular in terms of the overall aesthetic, but at least in my mind in the big picture it changed in a way I’m less fond of. When you include hidden coins or collectables in your levels they tend to be tied to alternative paths or challenge spots typically. Too often in this case though they tended just to be in unusual places you had to guess at and often plain die trying to find since their openings are situation at the edge of spike pits or other lethal places. This didn’t make me feel skilled or clever finding them, more often than not it just felt cheap. Otherwise it’s fine I suppose but of the two I’d say the first, overall, left a better impression with me.
