What type of game is 1-2 Switch?
1-2 Switch is basically a bunch of wacky mini games put
In to the one game to show what the little joy cons can do (The joy cons are the little blue and red controllers.)
1-2 Switch has 28 games to play.
The 28 games on 1-2 switch are…
Air Guitar: Players must use their Joy-Con controller as if to strum an air guitar to the beat of rock music.
Baby: Played in the Switch's Handheld mode, players must rock a crying baby to sleep and put it down gently without awaking it.
Ball Counting: Using the Joy-Con's HD Rumble feature, players must guess how many balls are rolling around inside a box. They tilt the controller while it is in the palm of their hand. They can hide their guess, preventing their opponent from choosing the same number to automatically end the game in a tie.
Baseball: One player chooses between two pitching choices, and the other attempts to get players to the home base.
Beach Flag: Players jog on the spot in order to be the first to reach a flag. The controller vibrates when they are at the flag's location, and they raise the controller to lift it up.
Boxing Gym: Players follow instructions on how to throw a punch, with the quickest player to perform the most accurate punch receiving a point.
Copy Dance: Each player takes turns making three dance poses, which the other player must copy in time to the music. Players are scored based on accuracy, energy, timing and poses.
Dance Off: Both players must freestyle dance to the same beat, judged on rhythm and performance. The music has brief periods of stopping, as the dancers must hold their position.
Eating Contest: A single-player game which makes use of the right Joy-Con controller's IR motion camera. Players hold the controller a short distance from their mouth and make biting motions to try and eat as many virtual sandwiches as they can within the time limit.
Shave: Players use the Joy-Con controllers as electric razors, racing to be the first to completely shave their virtual beards.
Signal Flag: Players listen to cues from a female and male announcer. The players must follow the instructions from the female voice while doing the opposite of the male's voice.
Sneaky Dice: Based on Liar's dice, players use their Joy-Con controllers as a cup and dice. Players can shake the controllers around to shuffle the dice, and they can re-roll up to 3 times. When the cups are lifted, the player with the highest number on their dice wins. However, as the number on a player's dice can only be detected by the opposing player through vibration, players may attempt to bluff their opponent, tricking them into shaking their cup and ending up with a lower number.
Soda Shake: Players shake up a single Joy-Con controller representing a bottle of soda and pass it around, aiming to not be the one holding it when the cork inevitably pops.
Sword Fight: Players use the Joy-Con controllers as swords, holding down the trigger buttons to guard and releasing it and swinging the controller to attack. Players can guard against a vertical strike by swinging horizontally, and vice versa.
Table Tennis: A table tennis game in which players must listen to rhythmic audio cues to hit back a ping pong ball. Players can perform lobs and smashes to alter the flow and try to throw off their opponent.
Telephone: Players place their Joy-Con controllers on a surface and must be the first to pick theirs up when the phone rings. Sometimes, they are given a specific ring to listen for.
Treasure Chest: Players rotate the Joy-Con to unravel chains surrounding a treasure chest.
Wizard: Players use the Joy-Con controllers as makeshift wands, using gestures and counters to push back a clashing beam of magic. The game is started by waving the Joy-Con in circular motions above the player's head, and then players must thrust to move the energy closer to their opponent. Thrusting immediately after your opponent results in a counter, which moves the energy further than a normal thrust.
Zen: Players hold a given pose with the Joy-Con sitting in their hands, attempting to stay as still as possible.
My 2 problems with 1-2 switch are that with most of the games you must look away from the TV and half the time you don’t even know what you are doing and the other problem with 1-2 Switch is that it all the games are 1-2 players so it’s not the sort of game you would play with a group of 3 or more.
I give 1-2 Switch 2 1UPs.
