Trying to make a puzzle platformer a success on the Switch has become a bit of a challenge given the thick library already available in the genre. Nubarron takes a decent stab at making a splash with a cute character, lush setting, and some decent (though perhaps uninspired) puzzle action. However, not far into the game I started noticing a general sluggishness in the controls and gameplay, despite there honestly not being much to the game visually. It unfortunately got worse with my jump sometimes not responding at all, and being mindful of the fact I regularly play super-quick action games where precision is everything I can confirm it is in no way related to my trusty Pro controller. Closing the game down and returning seemed to improve matters briefly but once I was sensitive to the issue responsiveness continued to be a persistent problem and concern. Perhaps a patch can remedy this issue but in its current state I can’t recommend the game.
