[Nintendo Switch] Arrog Review | PS4Blog.net
Arrog is a charming bite-sized puzzle adventure on Nintendo Switch. Learn more about it in our Arrog review!
In Arrog from indienova, Hermanos Magia, and LEAP Game Studios, you’ll be taking on a bite-sized puzzle adventure with a charming look, thanks to its black and white hand-drawn presentation, with some extra color here and there as accents. It’s a tale of a man who must come to accept his death by way of his dreams. When I say this is a bit-sized puzzle adventure, I’m not using the term lightly since you can complete the whole thing in around 30 minutes or so!
You’ll be playing Arrog by moving a cursor on the screen, using the A button to interact with objects so that you can solve the different puzzles in this short adventure. You’ll also be pointing with the cursor and clicking around the screen to find the next step in a chain, as is the case at the start of the game when you click around the screen to light things up by way of casual thunder and lighting, or when you get rid of some clouds a bit later so that you start to see things more clearly on your path towards acceptance.
Arrog is the type of game that you’re either going to love or hate. First of all, because of its topic – dealing with death -, second of all because of its black and white, hand-drawn presentation, and third of all, due to its overall length. At only 30 minutes, it doesn’t overstay its welcome and is a perfect option to play between longer, more action-packed releases. This is all I can say about the game without spoiling its puzzles and how its short narrative is presented, but I do suggest you give it a go since it’s certainly a different style of game on Nintendo’s console. Arrog is out on Nintendo Switch with a budget $3.99 asking price.
