When Vampire Survivors began to pick up steam last year following its 2021 release, I had my doubts. Its pixel graphics, minimal controls, and lack of any cohesive storyline made me second-guess purchasing it; I simply didn’t understand the hype. But when the game came to the Nintendo Switch on Aug. 17, I decided to give it a go. I’ve always been a fan of the roguelike genre and the Switch is one of my preferred platforms, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
The verdict? I might’ve just found my new addiction.
