If you’re a fan of platformers, whether more casual, challenging, or somewhere up the middle the Switch has you covered. Flying in somewhere between challenging and the middle we have Imp of the Sun, a pretty attractive platformer with a unique look, feel, and story. While thankfully not too over-encumbered with complexity the one thing that, for me, holds it back a bit has to do with the somewhat loose precision of the jumping, specifically the movement on the double jump. Whether it’s the animation frames or simply the feel of things it just didn’t feel as crisp and precise as I’d prefer in a game like this. Another concern is that though I enjoy the fact that games like this will sometimes let me wander off the intended path a bit in this case it resulted in me getting a bit stuck, and not always with a viable means of getting myself out of the trouble I put myself in. Still, overall it’s a decent platformer with a great sense of style, it just may be a bit on the finicky side.
