With its cute pixel art, unusual characters, and sense of adventure I find Lila’s Sky Ark a bit of a challenge to describe. Equal parts trippy, charming, and sometimes throwing some challenges your way it just has a vibe to it that you’ll either really love or perhaps struggle to get in tune with. I will say that it felt like I was doing a fair amount of aimless wandering, so perhaps a bit more direction in places would have been appreciated, but I could see where others would find its pacing and style to be relaxing. For the most part the puzzles you need to work out are reasonably well-designed, though trial and error did seem to come into play more than I normally like when simply trying to understand what your obstacles are and how you’re supposed to deal with them. All in all I found it to be pretty thoroughly pleasant, and even enchanting with its calm feelings and music, but in terms of play I can’t say it’s particularly memorable either in an eShop bursting with other quirky adventures to embark on.
