[Nintendo Switch] Hitchhiker Review
In Hitchhiker from Versus Evil and Mad About Pandas you’re trying to unravel the mystery of your own past as you hitchhike with no clear destination. Check our Hitchhiker review!
In Hitchhiker from Versus Evil and Mad About Pandas, you’ll be taking on a story-driven experience as Copernicus, a guy who has no memory of his past and no idea of where it is that he should be going. You’ll be hitchhiking through different areas as you try to find the clues needed to unravel the mystery that lies before you. Can you really understand what stands in your future?
The controls are very easy to understand since you’ll be looking around from your seat with the left analog stick, interacting with objects or drivers with the A button… and that’s it! You can also play this one using the console’s touchscreen by dragging your finger around the screen and tapping when playing in Portable or Tabletop Mode or when playing Hitchhiker on a Nintendo Switch Lite.
Each run in Hitchhiker will take you around half an hour or so, with five runs in total needed to meet all the characters you’ll interact with, as you try to piece together the puzzle that is your life and your destination, you’re looking at close to three hours in total to experience the full story arc. Interact with the objects around you as you sit down on the passenger’s side of the vehicle and find new parts to interact with as your conversation with each character continues.
You might get a scenic break from the conversation so that you can take a moment to see what is going on around you. Once you’re ready to carry on, you can interact with the driver to continue with the conversation, bringing you closer to putting the pieces together. Talking any more about the story for each segment, the items you’ll find, or the puzzles you’ll have to solve would just end up spoiling the experience,
Hitchhiker is a very interesting first-person adventure with some twists and turns that will keep you engaged from start to finish as you start to unravel the mystery surrounding Copernicus. Saying anything else about this one would spoil your enjoyment of the game’s story, so be sure to just go and check it out on Nintendo Switch. The game is out with a $19.99 price, and it’s one that you’re going to remember.
