[Beyond PlayStation] BINGO for Nintendo Switch Review
BINGO for Nintendo Switch is, as the name suggests, the game on Switch. Want to learn more about this game? Then check out our BINGO for Nintendo Switch review!
The game includes four modes: Buzzer BINGO, in which you compete to see who can get the number that appears the fastest to try and get BINGO faster; Slide BINGO in which you move rows on your card to align all five red tiles into a single row; BINGO Poker for which you’ll draw a number and discard one in return as if you were playing Poker; and Classic BINGO, which is the version of the game we all know about.
Once you’ve selected a mode, you will get to select the number of games you’ll play (one, four and eight being the options), and select if you want to activate Lay flat mode which is good for when playing in portable mode since it makes the screen rotate 180 degrees so that each pair of players face each other as you sit around the Switch‘s screen as if the screen was a board with the BINGO cards. Each game has you moving a white cursor around your board to either select a number in the center or the screen or, in the case of Slide BINGO, to move an entire row around. It’s a simple control setup that allows you to focus on what is going on instead of being distracted by trying to remember what button does what.
You need to be careful as you play since, for example, during Classic BINGO, if you make a mistake you will be blocked from adding a number to your card for the next turn, and this could be the difference between winning a game and seeing how one of your opponents grabs the points that might give him/her/it the victory for the set. You might have noticed I said it, and it’s not a mistake: the game can be played by 1, 2, 3 or 4 human players, but if there aren’t enough humans around, the computer can take over for the rest of the available slots, so that there’s always a “full room” of players for all modes.
BINGO for Nintendo Switch is a fun party game that is great in short bursts of gaming, but that might feel a bit too repetitive during longer sessions. If you’re a fan of BINGO then this game is perfect for you since you could just play the Classic BINGO mode and get your money’s worth, but if you’re looking for something a bit deeper, then this game is not going to do it for you.
