Review: Quadle (Nintendo Switch)

Quadle

Pros:

  • Nice graphics.
  • 71.7mb download size.
  • Full touchscreen controls.
  • Can play using face buttons.
  • Puzzle gameplay.
  • Two modes- Free play (play any unlocked level) and score run (start from level 1).
  • The high score kept.
  • Four worlds with 128 total levels.
  • Basic tutorial.
  • Earn up to 3 stars on each level and it shows your best clear time.
  • Game-you moves around and jumps on isometric squares, each time you land on a square it changes color, once it hits red it disappears. You need to get to the exit before falling.
  • Looks like Q-Bert.
  • Nice puzzle game.
  • Good commute game.
  • Bite-sized levels.

Quadle

Cons:

  • Face Button control is horrible, clunky and awkward.
  • No online leaderboards.
  • One trick pony.

Summary

Everyone likes a puzzle game, Quadle can be best described as a Q Bert puzzler due to its close resemblance and graphics style. As a puzzle game it starts off easy then gets deviously harder. I found the best way to play is handheld using the touchscreen controls, the face buttons are just far too frustrating to even mess with. Levels are bite-sized making it a good commute game. Quadle has a simple idea and goes full hog into with little to no deviation, this makes it predictable and does shorten its life somewhat as fatigue sets in along with the phrase “been there done that”. For a quick puzzle fix, Quadle is fine, for long time commitment it lacks any real variety.

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!
