Oxytone Review (Nintendo Switch OLED)

Oxytone Review, Relax and listen to the hypnotizing world of Oxytone, slow slow-paced puzzle game where you rotate hexagonal tiles with paths. Each tile can be used up to six times, creating tangled paths. Strive for the highest scores by creating the longest paths and achieving impressive combinations. Every move matters and success depends on strategy and planning. You can discard tiles that don’t fit your plan, but this reduces your pool of available tiles. To refresh it, you must fill tiles by guiding paths through them six times, deepening the mechanics further.

Oxytone Review Pros:

  • Decent graphics.
  • 172MB download size.
  • Own in-game trophy list.
  • Display settings – light flashes, and contrast trails.
  • Gameplay setting – camera reset.
  • Puzzle gameplay.
  • Unlocks – trail color, background color, and modifiers and modes.
  • Handy randomize trail color and randomize background color option.
  • Earn points and unlock new levels.
  • The game plays out where each piece you place is a hexagonal tile with designs on them, as you place them you connect the designs together and score points for having them pass over over tiles.
  • Very zen-like and relaxing experience.
  • Great brain food.
  • End of level or life breakdown showing score, best chain, and length.
  • Simple controls and they are shown on the screen at all times.
  • You do have some camera control.
  • It’s so satisfying to watch your ball move across the tiles.
  • Each level has X amount of tiles to move.
  • Your ball highlights what would be the route it takes should you place the tile.
  • Combo counter for when you pass multiple tiles.
  • Trophies earned can pop up when earned.
  • Chilled out the soundtrack.
  • Very addictive.
  • Perfect game for the handheld.
  • Filled tiles are a bonus you get where you use every thread in a tile design.
  • As you do combos you earn extra tiles so you can keep going.

Oxytone Review Cons:

  • Cannot remap controls.
  • No real tutorial.
  • The trophies don’t pop up when earned, you have to go into the menu and check. I found this is only something that happens at random times.
  • Not a lot of game settings.
  • Doesn’t offer any leaderboards.
  • No Colourblind settings and it does use a lot of color.
  • Doesn’t have a quick restart option.

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!
