Squareboy is a decent beat-em-up, if a little on the short side. The Switch version is definitely the better version of the game but perhaps doesn’t quite do enough to justify the cost when a free option is available elsewhere. This isn’t a bad game by any means – in fact, we had a rather enjoyable time playing through the story levels – but its flaws and inability to stand out from the crowd stop it from being a sure-fire hit.

While the morals that the game tries to tell are good ones – since when is kicking almighty lumps out of bullies not a good thing – it would have been nice to see a bit more complexity added to the arsenal of attacks. It feels like a game that a mobile device would be able to handle with no trouble – and the Switch needs to be above that level in order to sway families away from mobile gaming and back to a trusty console.

At the end of the day, Squareboy vs. Bullies: Arena Edition is a serviceable beat-em-up that doesn’t go out of its way to stand out. While it does have a distinct Gameboy-inspired feel, its repetitive level design, disappointing enemy variety, and lack of content make for a middling five dollar experience.

Em suma, Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition não é de todo um mau jogo e até pode ser considerado pelos saudosistas dos beat’em ups clássicos que sejam detentores de uma Switch mas é apenas uma opção válida para quem não tenha onde jogar jogos da Virtual Console enquanto ela não chega à Switch. Não se deve esperar daqui um verdadeiro clássico mas sim algo que consegue divertir durante apenas uns minutos, apesar de deixar sempre a sensação ao jogador de que mais valia jogar o jogo no qual se inspirou.

Auch wenn ich keine hohen Erwartungen an „Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition“ gehabt und mit „Don’t knock twice“ und „Tower of Babel“ keine atemberaubenden Spiele zuvor getestet habe, fällt es mir sehr schwer, irgendwelche positiven Aspekte zu finden. Vorne weg ist dabei sicherlich der lokale Kooperationsmodus zu nennen, durch den das Spiel halbwegs spielbar wird und vielleicht dazu beiträgt, dass man bis zum Endkampf dranbleibt. Wer das Genre liebt, sollte den eShop allerdings lieber nach einem anderen Genrevertreter durchsuchen.

When it comes to beat 'em ups, few games are as simple as Squareboy vs. Bullies: Arena Edition. The easily exploitable and basic gameplay combines with the overall lack of variety in a way that'll make you wish that the bullies win.
