  • While the presentation is nice and clean, and the puzzles are reasonably tricky, there’s pretty even competition out there

    With the preponderance of puzzle games on this Switch it’s a bit of a challenge to find or invent a flavor that isn’t already represented. To CRoD’s credit, while there are a few others out there that adhere to the same style (the challenge of needing to move through corridors and areas managing your turns carefully since you’ve got a long spear to work with in this case), the overall presentation here is quite solid. Everything is reasonably detailed so it’s easy to tell what challenges you’ll need to deal with and new complications that show up along the way are generally easy to understand right out of the gate. As always, once you get knee deep in these they can get quite tricky, and planning is absolutely necessary for success, with the best plan sometimes being to work backwards in order to work things out. While I wouldn’t say it is at the top of this puzzle subgenre on Switch (I’d give that nod to Kine), it’s at least close behind.
