Mechstermination Force on Nintendo Switch. Battle against massive bosses, jump and climb onto them to find their weak spots and blow them to kingdom come in this action-packed platforming boss rush, from the creator of the Gunman Clive series. When the MegaMechs have taken control of the world, one small group of brave soldiers are still fighting for humanity’s independence. Join them and lead the charge against the mechanical menace. Get powerful weapons and upgrades! Use the Magnet Gloves to climb on top of robots the size of Skyscrapers, double jump over pools of lava with the Boost Boots, and use your trusty baseball bat to smash the MegaMechs’ energy cores. Take on the massive bosses alone or together with a friend in local co-op.
I am in love with the simplicity of this game, pick a guy and fight the enormous robot. The characters all share the same feel and simply look different. In between battles you go back to home base, which involves some excellent and funny dialogue.
Controls are an extension of the simple game style. You can jump, shoot and change weapons. There’s also a melee attack, if that’s your bag. You also have a special move, which should only be used on red targets. While yellow targets are susceptible to any attack. Performance is on point, and I didn’t have a single issue.

Graphics look great and I got a solid 60fps. Especially when you are inside one of the robots, and having to shoot out it’s armoured plating. Each defeat gets you money to spend on gear such as double jump boots, and a laser gun. You can also upgrade your life which was my go-to upgrade at the beginning of the game.
A great idea to add replay value is that you can go back and replay old levels to get more cash. This can then be used to get upgrades for the battle you are stuck on.
The whole aesthetic is very comic book style, bright colours and bold outlines. The size difference between you and the robot can make it difficult to spot your guy amongst all the debris.
All in we spent around 6 hours to complete the game. This was playing straight through, and not going back. But I can see the attraction to go back and play again with better weapons.
The addition of a two-player co-op is great, but we get the issue when zoomed out. It’s difficult to find your character. Though, it is still fun to kill robots with a friend.
Overall, Mechstermination Force is a fun game to play with a friend. It’s huge robots and a great look make it a joy to play. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
