Platform(s)

Switch, PS4, PC and Xbox One

Pros
Cons
Some variety with objectives.
Jazzy soundtrack is nice.
Clunky, unsatisfying combat.
Terrible platforming and stiff controls.
Frame rate drops on Switch is rampant. Looks ugly, too.
Spacious checkpoints.
City is not worth exploring.

Verdict:

Timothy vs The Aliens is an overpriced title that offers far too little to be considered worth trying out. Seriously, with a price tag like this, you’ll feel like a mook if you fork over your cash without second-thought here. It’s clunky, boring, and a hassle to play, but Switch owners will feel like the biggest shmucks here.
