Undoubtedly cute, this rolling challenge plays reasonably well but is quite simple in its design
Games making their way over from the mobile space can be a mixed bag on Switch both in terms of appropriateness and quality. What works well on a phone or tablet sometimes simply feels out of place on a dedicated console. In the case of Marbelous Animals what you get though is a reasonably challenging game along the lines of the old school Labyrinth where you’ll be using the gyro controls to roll a variety of animal-themes marbles through hazards and traps to collect coins and get to the hole at the end of the level. It isn’t a revolution by any means but whether using the system in handheld or perhaps a Pro Controller while docked it’s a nice change of pace and may seem to be a purely casual affair but can also be quite challenging at times. Throw a budget price into that mix and it’s not a bad deal.
