It's a decent puzzle game, and at $10 it's priced right, but don't expect anything too meaty here. Flip Wars may not be as good as Nintendo's other first-party eShop offering for Nintendo Switch -- the awesome Snipperclips -- but it's a reasonably fun puzzle game that fuses strategy with speed. Also be aware there's no single-player component, so don't bother bringing this game on a long flight, as you can't do anything other than play through the tutorial. But you can add AI-controlled bots to a multiplayer game, if you want four players and there are only two of you. Flip Wars isn't a bad game, but there are many better puzzle and strategy games to choose from.
