Review – Writhe

It’s tough to stand out in the free-for-all of Nintendo’s eShop. Despite this, there can be hidden gems buried in the rubble that need dusting off so they can gleam in the spotlight! Writhe might not be the game to catch your eye, but the worth is evident under closer examination. I’m not saying it’s a diamond, but perhaps a shard of brilliant-green peridot! The game is set in a dystopian Bangkok, where giant, mutated Sago Worms have gone rogue and you are a lone ‘Exterminator’ fending off the hoard. Writhe is a classic arcade FPS experience and the tiny development team at Mission Ctrl Studios do their best to pay homage to a simpler time.
