Whenever a new piece of hardware comes around, developers everywhere scramble to showcase the capabilities of any spanking new console. In Nintendo’s case, the Switch – which is posed as the ultimate device for couch co-op – has Snipperclips, which just so happens to be one of the most addictive 2-player games ever made.
Despite its apparent simplicity, Snipperclips is an engaging puzzle game that can be played and liked by anyone. In a game like this, having a difficulty level that feels just right is ideal for players of any skill level to enjoy, and that’s something that this game gets absolutely right.
Play It Together
The Nintendo Switch has been very upfront about its couch co-op supremacy. Nintendo games in general have always been a great place to start for new players thanks to their approachability and overall simplicity – but mostly because they’re insanely fun.
Snipperclips is a cooperative puzzle game where players have to help each other in order to progress through the levels. The main focus here is the game’s multiplayer modes: players take the roles of two pieces of paper that can be cut to achieve their goals.
Don’t let the multiplayer-focused formula of Snipperclips deceive you: the game can as easily be played solo. When playing alone, players can change between characters at the press of a button. This might not be as fun as playing with a friend, but at least it’s nice of Nintendo to not make the game strictly multiplayer-only.
The game serves as an excellent demonstration of what the Switch can do in today’s highly-competitive console market. In fact, Snipperclips is the Wii Sports that 1-2 Switch failed to become: a piece of software that perfectly encapsulates the design philosophy behind a hybrid console that can be played anywhere with anyone.
A Charming World
Of course, a game like this one would be nothing without a proper art style to make its cartoony world even better. Thankfully, that’s something that the Snipperclips development team paid close attention to. The whole paper-like world of Snipperclips looks a bit flat when compared to games like Yoshi’s Crafted World, but it manages to communicate the specifics of each puzzle rather well.
It takes a great deal of skill to take two pieces of paper and make them the protagonists of a game, but Snipperclips’ characters are designed to become one of Nintendo’s most charming characters since Pikmin.
As we mentioned before, the puzzles are quite varied, but they never feel too difficult. This is great for younger players who might be interested in trying the game solely based on its charming art style. It’s also great for playing with the family: something that only Nintendo knows how to do right.
Snipperclips perfectly showcases the portable co-op capabilities of the Switch. The game’s impressive multiplayer modes and its charming art style make it one of the best titles on Nintendo’s new console.
