Bleep Bloop from Ludipe and Zerouno Games is a fun and relaxing puzzle game on Nintendo Switch. Learn more about it in our Bleep Bloop review!
In Bleep Bloop you control two square blobish creatures. One is yellow and is controlled with the left analog stick, while the other one is red and is controlled with the right analog stick. This is easy to remember since the game will place a yellow colored bar on the left wide of the screen and a res colored bar on the right side of the screen. Your goal is to get both characters to the glowing blue squares on the screen. Simple, right?
While the first handful of levels do start out easy and help you get used to the minimalist gameplay mechanics, once you’re out of that set, your skills will be tested in full. You will quickly realize that if both creatures are in motion and they crash into each other, then you will need to restart the level. As long as one of the characters is back to being a compact and solid square, then you’re good to go.
All stages have a fair solution, so as long as you relax and pay attention you will be ready for finding the right movement pattern for your characters. Since you don’t have a limit on how many times you can move each of your characters to complete a level and carry on, and since there is no timer counting down a time limit, you can always take your time to review the situation at hand and find the right path to take that will take you to the blue glowing squares that will allow you to solve the puzzle.
As you go through this short but fun game you will be introduced to new elements that will change things a bit here and there so that your experience can feel minimalistly fresh from start to finish. As I mentioned, the first set of levels is there for you to get used to things before the game introduces pink circles on which Bleep or Bloop can land, stopping them right there while also splattering some pinkish goo for added effect – goo where the other character will also stop in its tracks. Or you might run into small switches that will activate and deactivate colored squares that will block your path or aid you by giving you a chance to go at things differently by providing you with an extra stop along the way.
Bleep Bloop is a game that you can finish in a few hours depending on your expertise with puzzle games, and it’s a fun experience until the end. It’s certainly a minimalist indie game, and it’s making the Nintendo Switch its home, which definitely feels just right. If you’re looking for a relaxing and colorful puzzle game to play at home or on the go either by yourself or with a friend in some hectic local co-op session during which you will probably end up shouting instructions at each other, then be sure to give Bleep Bloop a look!
