  • When you’re trying to catch people’s attention in a genre as crowded as puzzlers on the Switch it pays to do something a bit different. Ego Protocol certainly does that, offering up gameplay that mixes strategy with some quick reactions for action once everything has been set into motion. Starting with a somewhat painful tutorial to try to help you get used to what I’d consider to be controls that are more complex than they should need to be it can be a shaky start. From there though, as you get used to the means of changing the level or controlling your character, it does start to feel a bit less awkward. Especially if you’re determined to grab everything the level has to offer without dying and within the allotted time you’re going to have your work cut out for you. It won’t be enough to configure the rooms in a way that gets you on the right path, once you’ve the action into motion you’ll need to be on top of changing levels and either making you character jump, pause, or shoot to keep them moving and out of trouble. Even if you had it plotted out it can be trickier than you’d think and it is here that the lack of intuitivity in the controls can sometimes make you stumble a bit as well. Still, though an acquired taste, there’s a solid and smart challenge here for puzzle fans who can handle the pressure to enjoy.
