Floor Kids (Nintendo Switch)

  • Hey, it’s our first video game review! I’m more than happy to start em on the right foot.
  • Floor Kids is a rhythm type video game (think Guitar Hero, Just Dance, etc) for the Nintendo Switch where you breakdance in arcades, supermarkets, street corners, etc.
  • When I first saw the preview, the breakdancing took me back to my childhood, when breakdancing appeared in movies, music, schoolyards, etc. The 80’s were AWESOME.
  • Kid Koala provides the soundtrack, bringing catchy beats that has me humming them hours after I stop playing the game. As a super-bonus, it’s got sweet and refreshing hand-drawn characters by animator JonJon. Listen, I don’t want “realism” in my video-games. I want style, swagger and of course: a fun as hell game.
  • Floor Kids is charming, fun and a great break from all the “grab sword/gun (or the dreaded “sword that looks like a gun” or the “gun that shoots swords”) and go kill a bunch of monsters and soldiers” type of game. Give me more original and interesting ideas like this!
  • Reminds me of a skateboard game called OlliOlli, where you have to really focus on your clever manipulation of the buttons in order to achieve true gratification.
  • Encourages you to be creative with your dance moves, just like real dancing. Don’t be doing the same move over and over again. Your partner and audience will boo you, person.
  • The more imaginative dancer you are, the more the crowd will love you. Babies, little old ladies and even bulldogs will cheer you on. Don’t stop.
  • I don’t have a lot of time for long, epic video games (sorry, Zelda: Breath of the Wild). Give me a game I can play little by little, that will eventually give me completion, as well as contentment. This game gives me that. I can play it for 20 minutes max and it’ll put a huge smile on my face each time.
  • Final Grade: A+
  • Purchase Floor Kids for your Nintendo Switch now. Also, go buy a Nintendo Switch.
