Game Description

Fairune Collection includes four games in one package - Fairune, Fairune 2, Fairune Origin and Fairune Blast!

Fairune is a retro-styled adventure RPG. Our heroine embarks upon a journey to unlock three mysterious statues and seal away a great evil. Throughout the journey she will need to solve puzzles, fight monsters, discover new weapons and improve her abilities.

Fairune 2 brings our heroine back for another perilous quest, this time to find a lost fairy. This sequel delivers a bigger world for those that are ready for the challenge.

Fairune Origin, being released for the first time, offers an intriguing look at the beginnings of the IP. It provides a short but fun adventure and illustrates how SKIPMORE conceptualised the gameplay of the two games that followed.

Fairune Blast is an unlockable treat, meanwhile, to offer something completely different. It's a colourful shoot-em-up, perfect for pick-up-and-play action on Nintendo Switch!

Review: Fairune Collection (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

Fairune Collection is a deliciously big slice of brain-teasing RPG fun with a sprinkle of shmup action on top. None of the games will require a huge amount of time to complete, solving many of its puzzles feels truly rewarding and both graphics and sound will take you back to a simpler time in this industry. If you were a fan of the original outings, you will certainly like this ‘upgrade' but if you are venturing into the realm of Fairune for the first time, heads up: you might have just discovered the perfect lazy summer afternoon game of the year.

[Beyond PlayStation] Fairune Collection Review via PS4Blog.net

Fairune Collection is a very nice release on Nintendo Switch that for only $9.99 offers four games you can play at home or on the go for 10+ hours before you can complete all of them. Fairune and its sequel look a lot better on Nintendo Switch than they did on the Nintendo 3DS, so if you're a fan of the series this is a must-have on Nintendo's hybrid console.

Fairune Collection (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

No deep challenge exists in any of the four games, but the in-game collections and achievements add replay value. Online leaderboards compare your best completion time or score (for Fairune Blast only) against other players, so speed-running fans might want to look into Fairune Collection, too. Without further ado, cue that Zelda treasure chest sound effect!.

Review: Fairune Collection (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

In the end the problem with the Fairune Collection comes from the fact the series is a short lived one and yet it still took its time to find its stride.

Review: Fairune Collection (Nintendo Switch) via Pure Nintendo

Fairune Collection is casual puzzle-solving fun. It's a good game to pick up and go on the Nintendo Switch.

Definitely seeing some assets reused between this and Kamiko. But the trailer has me intrigued for this collection and I've been happy with what other titles I've seen from this developer.

Fairune grew on me but it is still hard to recommend them. My first impress of Fairune was very negative but Fairune 2 improves on the first. The combat was very simple in both of them. When I read bump system I was thinking of Ys 1 & Ys 2 bump system, Fairune's bump system sucks compared to that. I'm planning on posting more details on the site, just need to type it up. I would give Fairtune a 5/10 and Fairtune a 6.5/10. Fairtune Origin is a prototype for Fairtune, took me 15 mins to finish. Fairtune Blast is fun but it has a 2 minute timer, so you are replaying the same thing over and over. I do feel the price is okay but there are better games on the Switch for that price.

I played Fairune 2 on 3ds and it was hard to put down. What really struck me was just how much of the adventure puzzle genre could be stripped away while still maintaining the fun factor. It was a truly magical experience that leans heavily on the exploration side of a Zelda title. I will 100% be buying this again on switch

Have no knowledge of this game whatsoever. Need to do some research and find out if it's any good.
