A solid, if uninspiring run ‘n gun title with some very nice visuals. The game’s length and difficulty make it hard to recommend without reservation but if you are after something a little quirky you might enjoy your brief time with this.

Rise & Shine is an enjoyable if brief romp through a world of gaming nods and shows off a few neat puzzling ideas. There should be more to the package, though.

When everything is put together, Rise and Shine is incohesive, and no aspect of it is compelling enough in its own right to make the game more than the sum of its parts. It probably isn’t a waste of an afternoon to play Rise and Shine, but it's probably better to do anything else instead.

Rise and Shine is undoubtedly one of the best-looking games on the Switch. The animations, level design, and characters are nothing short of a feast for the eyes. While this is all well and good, the rest of the game never really finds its footing because of its brevity and lack of focus. If you’re planning on jumping into this adventure, be prepared for a game with elements of an action platformer, with bullet hell moments, that is constantly stifled by the need to be everything all at once.

In truth, Rise & Shine might not be the right fit for a lot of players. Its brutal challenge is owed in equal parts to its controls and design as much as its overall difficulty level, which will be a tough sell for many. While there are definite deficiencies in Rise & Shine, in particular its failure to properly balance the shooting and puzzle mechanics on offer here, I’d argue that it’s not enough to give the game a hard pass. When Rise & Shine‘s gameplay works, it works well, providing a fascinating take on the run and gun genre that I hope Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team has a chance to refine and perfect at some point. If you can take the pounding, Rise & Shine might be worth a look.
