Given the intricate elements in your typical artistically-driven stained glass window, working a puzzle for one quickly gets tricky
To this point straight-up puzzle games on the Switch have generally not worked out so well. The old-school jigsaw template may work functionally, but too often I have found that digitally the experience doesn’t hold up as well as when playing with the real thing. One variation I’ve encountered on Switch before that works a little better has you instead using pieces (or should I say shards) of a stained glass window. Since there really is no physical equivalent to compare to it does better, and overall I’d say it is far more challenging to complete as a result. The degree of challenge will inevitably vary a bit from puzzle to puzzle, in many ways it seems to depend on how well you’re able to visualize the final product to guide where you’re looking to place pieces. While the interface for scrolling through, moving, and rotating pieces functions, I would also say it feels like an area where it could have been improved, perhaps if you had some means of sorting them in some way to make it quicker to move through them all, especially in the beginning. If you’ve been looking for a more challenging take on puzzles, and can be patient as you get used to how tricky it can be to place pieces at times, this has the potential to be a worthy challenge.
