Reviews of puzzle games.
Quirky puzzle game with an abundance of interesting levels to give your brain a workout. Makes very good use of its varied campfire cooking mechanics. The family in cutscenes have a diverse range of skin tones and amusing banter about their cooking techniques. 5/5 stars - outstanding.
Elegant and satisfying minimalist puzzle game. It uses its core mechanics very effectively. 5/5 stars - outstanding.
Quirky, charming puzzle game where you swap tiles to help Red Riding Hood get through the woods safely. It really makes the most of its mechanics, and the par rating and unlockables help to create a positive experience for players of different ability levels. Tiles are easy to differentiate visually and the whole game has a distinctive aesthetic that adds to its fairytale appeal. The little bursts of dialogue at the end of each level are a fun addition, too. 5/5 stars - outstanding.
Relaxing, peaceful puzzle game where you must direct the flow of water to help mountain flowers bloom. 60 nicely-designed levels make it well worth the asking price. 4/5 stars - excellent.
Cute puzzle game where you must help a snake reach a hole. Levels are well-designed and new mechanics arrive at a good pace. 4/5 stars - excellent.
Cute, fun puzzle game where you stretch dogs to reach their food bowls. (The dogs seem perfectly fine, don't worry.) I didn't feel that the music fitted it especially well, but that's a very minor point. 4/5 stars - excellent.
3D puzzle game where you move snakes around blocks (and each other) to reach their goals in the correct number of moves. Mouse controls are a little frustrating at times, and trying to backtrack from resulting errors can make it worse. There's also no option to adjust music volume or turn it off. Aside from those issues, it's pretty fun. 3/5 stars - enjoyable.
Captivating puzzle game where you must roll a cube through levels while avoiding having one of its faces hit the ground. The levels are very neatly designed and there's a fun range of mechanics.
One major caveat, however - when you land on the forbidden face after the previous block has disappeared, it triggers bright flashing lights for a few moments. There is currently no way to disable this - if there were, I would have given this game 4/5 stars, but unfortunately this is a noteworthy accessibility issue. 3/5 stars - enjoyable.
