Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! (Nintendo Switch) Review

Review for Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! on Nintendo Switch

Back when Nintendo Switch first came out, people were still unsure what to expect from the hybrid system. However, amidst the various launch titles, such as 1-2-Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, was a hidden gem that only arrived on the eShop online download service. After garnering rave reviews around the globe and surpassing all expectations, Snipperclips: Cut it Out, Together! has seen not only an upgrade, but has now received a full retail release of its Plus form. Does the former PC indie idea from SFB Games still hold the same level of charm as it did nine months ago, and is the additional content worth it for those that already finished the original?

The beauty of Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! is that those that already downloaded the original gem can now simply grab a DLC upgrade for £8.99 to add the new content to the existing package and get cracking with Snip and Clip once more. For those that already aced all of the older puzzles, as well, after working through enough of the new ones, there is the chance to revisit oldies-but-goldies with new forms for added thrills.

There are also two new worlds that join the previous three – Cosmic Comics and Toybox Tools – and they bring about another 15 levels each, some unlocking only after completion of a set number of stages. Other than that, there is a stamp mode where cutting Snip and Clip into different shapes and choosing various colours means that they can then be ‘stamped’ onto a pad, and screenshots taken to send to friends. It is a rather seemingly pointless addition, though.

The meat is more in the single-player or dual-player main missions (solo folk simply switch between the Snip and Clip at will), which are harder than ever before. Try cutting and catching items on a broomstick and carrying them around, for instance, or balance parts of a ship with weights and cut-outs of the main characters causing shifts on the buoyant boat sectors, control the flow of traffic on a crossroads, or even drive a bike around by controlling each wheel individually…the list goes on! Sometimes it can be simpler working things out alone, but having a partner along for the ride can be beneficial as some of the puzzle is actually figuring out what needs to be done to achieve the goal, and that is where an extra pair of eyes comes in very handy.

After completing the new extras in the main mode, more stages are unlocked for multiplayer shenanigans, and this is where anyone and everyone can join in. There will be those that have never played videogames before, or think they are not suited to try them out because of past failings. Well, Snipperclips will prove them all wrong, as even the most rookie of players will get engrossed in the hilarious act of snipping away at each other, either in a destructive / therapeutic manner, or finally deciding to calm down and work together to finish each stage on offer. Then there are the usual multiplayer ‘fun’ games to play in full-on party mode. Some games labelled as ‘fun for all the family’ are actually falsely advertising themselves as all-round entertainment packages. However, Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! is not just fun for everyone, it becomes that addictive fix that will not just liven up a party, it will get the party started in any home!

What was already a fantastic package just got even better. The simple premise of cutting out shapes to solve puzzles is just as engrossing as it was upon release, and the addition of new puzzles for both single-player and multiplayer antics, as well as being able to revisit older puzzles with new pre-made shapes, make Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! the ideal treat for Nintendo Switch owners this Christmas...and beyond.
