With its very colorful and generally cheery environments and all sorts of elements to poke at Down in Bermuda has its appeal. The mix of exploration of the environment with the experimentation reminiscent of games like The Room or Monument Valley can work nicely together, though I’d note the puzzles often feel more trial and error here than those titles. The biggest obstacle to enjoyment I’d say is the cumbersome controls you’ll need to use to move around, requiring a mix of the analog sticks, the D-Pad, and what feels like every button to rotate, zoom, and position the camera to find orbs and work on puzzles. Still, if you’re looking for a pretty relaxing puzzle experience it will deliver that for a reasonable price.
