REVIEW: POOSH XL on Nintendo Switch

Review by Jon Donnis
Sometimes all you want in life is a super simple, pick up and play, one button arcade score chasing game, well guess what? POOSH XL is just that.

You only need to worry about pressing one button, no directions, no left and right, just press one button.

The main idea of the game is to climb as high in the level as you can and avoid the obstacles along the way. Take too long and the floor will catch up with you and kill you, hit anything and you die. You will see a circle on screen, with a moving directional arrow attached to it, when you press a button, you will fire off in the direction pointed at. The higher you get, the better your score, and really folks that is it.

The main game is just an endless climb, complete the odd challenge here and there to unlock skins, but basically just get as high of a score as you can, see the leaderboard to compare yourself to others and try to be the best.

There is some cool procedurally generated music by "veryhandsomebilly" Billy Mills, and the game is available in 11 languages, although you don't really need the language other than the menu.

The Good
Nice, clear, bright neon graphics, cool music, simple to learn, hard to master gameplay.

The Bad
Anything I could complain about, would just take away from the simplicity of the game.

Super simple, fun game, not much more can be said that that.

I score Poosh XL a simple 8/10

RELEASE DATE 8th May 2023 on Nintendo Switch
