In Whipseey and the Lost Atlas on Nintendo Switch, you play as Alex, a young boy whose curiosity has landed him in a world of trouble. After finding himself lost in a strange world and being transformed into a magical creature named Whipseey, he must solve the mystery of the Lost Atlas to return to his original form and go back home.
Your character gets transformed into a pink blob. You then have to jump and whip your way through the game. This has a strong smell of Kirby going through it. This starts at the character design and goes through the jumping and simplistic gameplay.

There is no sucking power in this game. You get a magical whip, which can attack enemies and hook onto parts of the level. This is used to swing across holes, or to float to the bottom. Though the mechanics are simple, the overall game can get pretty difficult. There is a lot of problem-solving in order to progress through the game.
But player beware, the whole game was completed by me in around 40 mins. This means even a casual gamer could get through the game in around an hour.
The idea of the game is great and is a wholesome tribute to older Kirby games. But the length of the game is a sticking point for me. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
