Throwback budget action platformers are pretty well a dime a dozen on Switch, and of relatively uniform decent quality, so clearly differentiating yourself in the space is a challenge. I suppose in terms of visual style Sun Wukong is at least a bit different, with an old-school pixel look but with smaller characters and details on the screen than would be typical. The problem is just the pretty limited scope of what you’re able to do, which offers little in the way of anything original or exciting and that honestly there were numerous times where I struggled to be sure which flat areas were platforms I could stand on and which were just aesthetics. If its look appeals to you, there’s some game to enjoy for the budget, but it’s hardly a stand out on the system.
