Summary

112th Seed is a very good puzzle game. It emits a retro atmosphere what with its Chiptune soundtrack and 8 Bit style graphics, simple controls and a simple puzzle-solving formula means the game is accessible and fun. It’s one of those games where it’s not that taxing on the brain but it is so cheery and non-intrusive that you play it in one sitting. No reason to go back afterward however as this is definitely a one-shot type deal, no scores or timers means it just you vs logic. It’s satisfying when you twig the solution and it’s frustrating when you don’t bit over 112th is a fun puzzle game and a good mental workout.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
