Platformers are well-represented on the Switch without a doubt, so if you’re going to bring one to the Switch you’d better make the most of it. While Inukari looks decent enough, and the movement is pretty satisfying (though certainly on the floaty side), its issue is simply a lack of variety, creativity, and ultimately content. What I also found a bit wonky was generally how casual it all felt until hitting a boss, where suddenly there’s a lot going on that the game has generally failed to prepare you and build your skills up for. Perhaps in a more limited ecosystem the issues wouldn’t be as pronounced, but even removing first-party titles from the list there are simply so many more interesting examples in the genre on the system that show more care and polish in their design, making them more satisfying.
