SNIPPERCLIPS

SFB Games/Nintendo



Whoa-oh, the snips are gettin’ bigger...

If the title has you conjuring nightmare visions of DS games involving imagining being a hairdresser then take a deep breath and chill, for Snipperclips is anything but shitty shovelware. Instead it’s a wickedly clever and fiendishly addictive puzzle game for up to four players.

With JoyCon in hand you control characters named Snip and Clip, which look like Dr Mario’s prescription-only wares split in half, then flattened and turned into paper. With their legs, eyes, blushy cheeks, ties and full of character they also just may be related to MS Office’s Clippy the paperclip. The aim is to manipulate them by raising, lowering, rotating and cutting chunks out of them in order to solve increasingly challenging puzzles. You may simply need to make them cover a shape. You may need to have them sharpen pencils. Or you may have them do their best Michael Jordan impersonations.

Impressively, there isn’t necessarily one single solution to each of the puzzles, you have leeway to apply your own way of brain-workiness to getting things done.

Going solo you can hit dozens of puzzles in ‘World Mode’, flipping between Snip and Clip. Where Snipperclips totally shines though is as a local multiplayer experience.

You can assail the aforementioned mode with two players controlling one character each, or get snippy with it in ‘Party Mode’, where four shapes require manipulation, be it by two or four players.

‘Blitz Mode’ is for a little less puzzling, a little more action. Play hockey, basketball or just go psycho-nuts cutting your opponents like crazy. BWA-HA-HA!

It’s shamelessly Nintendo cute, and frankly if you can’t deal with that then we doubt you’ve invested in a Switch. For those who have, get thee to the eStore, get Snipperclipsing and get happy!

Whoa yeah, the snips are getting’ bigger.

take me back to the start...
