Puzzle platformers on the Switch have taken on all sorts of appearances on the Switch, but nothing has been quite like Lumote. Working with pretty minimal direction, though thankfully not much is needed, you’ll flop your little blobby dude around with the objective to spread your vibrant colors to each stage’s exit, opening the way to the next challenge. How you do that can vary a little when it comes to specifics, but in general what you’re contending with is how to get to specific areas, how to activate spots, and how to use whatever tools you have available to you to accomplish this. It’s also important to look out for small collectables that can be pretty well hidden in crevices and can be tricky at times to grab if you want to get the most out of the challenge. Rather than being focused on a deep challenge the objective here seems to be on a very pleasant, moderately relaxing, and color-filled experience that will help you unwind between meatier endeavors. If you’re looking for something to simply enjoy, making you think just enough to be engaging, but not so much as to be taxing, this is a great option.
