Spatial Reasoning Puzzles

Mask of Mists

3 out of 5 – A relaxing semi Zelda-like experience that will provide a pleasant five hours of basic gameplay to enjoy. It’s fun. It’s not a groundbreaking title but I don’t think it’s trying to be.

Teslagrad

3.5 out of 5. A unique magnet-based puzzle platformer with excellent pacing outside of its one-hit death mechanics. Fans of both puzzle platformers and twitch-based games should check this out.

Toki Tori 2+

3.5 out of 5. Puzzle Game enthusiasts will likely be enamored by the innovative spatial reasoning puzzles of Toki Tori 2, but with its theming Action Platformer fans may struggle to stay interested.

Supraland

5 out of 5. Takes the First Person Puzzle Game genre pioneered by Portal and enhances it with Metroidvania tropes in a magnificent display of masterful game design. Do not let this one pass you by.

Wuppo

4 out of 5. Primarily an adventure game, Wuppo’s greatest strength is in its immersive world and its hilariously presented characters. Exploration is about escapism rather an imposed goal.

Visual Out

3 out of 5. A weird exploration focused Metroidvania where you use abstract mechanics to progress. If you’re looking for something unusual, its moody atmosphere and narrative mystery can be intriguing

Aggelos

4.5 out of 5. An expertly crafted callback to simpler times while still maintaining a modern approach to game design. Unique and imaginative power-ups and puzzles place Aggelos above the competition.

La-Mulana

5 out of 5. Not a game for everyone, but perhaps the best puzzle-based Metroidvania in the genre. Cryptic clues and dangerous tombs captures the feel of an Indiana Jones-style archeology adventure.
