Decent budget puzzlers are pretty common on the Switch so any factor that can differentiate is a boon. In the case of Nature Matters the edge is the polished art style that can look quite beautiful as you rejuvenate the land while making sure not to box yourself in before touching everything. It’s a pretty simple setup, with mild revisions to the strategy as you go getting added, but it’s very much a casual puzzle experience that just happens to look pretty nice. Lending to its more tablet-based roots the touchscreen is probably the ideal way to play. While the controller is serviceable there’s a tendency for it to be a bit touchy so it is easy to overshoot how far you wanted to go on occasion, requiring you to reset. Not a massive issue, just something to keep in mind if you’re contemplating it.
