I wrote about Mulaka previously. I like this game a lot. Do I recommend that you download this game right after reading this review? Read on to find out my final thoughts about Mulaka.

Mulaka’s setting and characters are really interesting and different from what we’ve seen from other games on the Nintendo Switch eshop so far. But does all this make for a good story? I’d say the story is interesting, the characters are interesting, and the dialogue usually is too, but I wasn’t extremely impressed with the story.

Mulaka focuses on its setting, character and gameplay more than its story. You’ll want to keep playing the game because of those elements. Mulaka has a good hook (its setting and characters) to get you into its gameplay. And I think people will enjoy this game.


The gameplay in Mulaka is fun. Basically, the game is an action/adventure in the style of Zelda. The player is given a pretty big world to explore and cool areas to find. There are a lot of puzzles in this game, some tough enemies, and cool powers too. While Mulaka really doesn’t do anything we haven’t seen in other games, all of its elements and its excellent control scheme come together to create a great game.

Mulaka’s controls are excellent. The game doesn’t make use of the Switch’s touch controls or gyro controls, but the analog/button controls work well and the game never feels like a chore to play. The action in Mulaka can be fast and that can require precision. Mulaka has precision and smooth controls.

The most striking aspect of Mulaka is its visuals though.


Mulaka is visually unique and very interesting. The graphics are done in a low poly style. Previously Morphite used this style for its graphics, but Mulaka’s visuals are much brighter than Morphites. Its a very cool style that makes the game appear both real and unreal. I like this games graphics a lot and it looks great in handheld mode and on the TV.

As for its music, Mulaka has a fantastic score that is slow when it needs to be and feels action packed when the action starts! Mulaka also has limited voice acting in the native language of the games characters. I wish this voice acting was all throughout the game. Mulaka also has very good sound effects.

Overall, Mulaka is an excellent game!


After you finish this review, you should go download Mulaka. The game’s art style, infusion of a culture we don’t see presented in video form usually, and excellent action/adventure gameplay make this a game no one should miss. Mulaka is another great game for the Nintendo Switch.

Mulaka is currently available on the Nintendo Switch eShop!
