Forgive me, reader, but I will now ruin Snipperclips for you by saying this: I can’t stop referring to it as ‘Nippleclips’. And now, I bet you won’t be able to either.
Now that formality is out of the way, Nipplecl… – sorry, Snipperclips – is one of the handful of downloadable titles that accompanied the launch of Nintendo’s Switch.
But let’s face it: with the all-conquering Zelda out it’s not so much being overshadowed as shoved under an obese blue whale with the words ‘IGNORE EVERYTHING BENEATH ME’ painted on it.
This is a shame, because Snipperclips is about as Nintendo as they come: a quirky, clever, original idea that is simple to grasp but deviously tricky on later levels. Plus, it can be played equally well by one or several players, depending on how many JoyCons/friends you have (multiplayer is the most fun – and by "the most fun" I of course mean "inevitably leads to arguments").
