Summary

ZHED is a really fun to play puzzle game, I suppose it’s more of a logic game, you must get blocks to line up and hit the goal square. It all sounds a bit complicated but after a few levels it all clicks and clicks a lot quicker than some puzzle games. It’s a good game to just have on your Switch for the occasional brain 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!
