A Little to the Left from Max Inferno and Secret Mode is a puzzle game in which you’ll be tidying and cleaning different situations. Check out our A Little to the Left & Cupboards and Drawers DLC review!

Sort, stack, and organize household objects into just the right spot in A Little to the Left, a tidy puzzle game with a mischievous cat who likes to shake things up!

A Little to the Left and its DLC Cupboards & Drawers from Max Inferno and Secret Mode bring us a fun puzzle game experience in which you will have to tidy up different situations. Right as the game began, I liked how the experience was intuitive enough, without any text or tutorial, so it’s up to you to figure out what must be done in each scene. And the puzzles can go in any direction!

Basically, A Little to the Left is a tidying game where you must clean every scene. A portrait isn’t properly centered? Fix it. Pens all over the place? Place them where they should be. The bookshelf is a mess? You’ll have to figure out what to do because there may be more than one obvious answer to each puzzle, but only one will allow you to complete it successfully.

Depending on your puzzle-solving abilities, you might get stuck in a puzzle as you wonder how to solve it. Luckily, there’s an in-game hint system for each puzzle that can help you. It comes in the form of scribbles on a sheet, and you must erase as little or as much as you want to reveal the puzzle solution. I liked this idea as it allows you to uncover just a little to give you the hint boost you need without looking at the direct solution.

As for the puzzles themselves, as I mentioned, they can go in any direction, and thus, their fun factor greatly varies from one to the other. For example, some of them require you to understand sequences, and if you’re not feeling it, you can solve them by trial and error since you’ll hear a distinctive “ding” when an item gets properly placed. As for me, I thought that some puzzles felt tedious to solve, but your mileage will certainly vary.

The game’s presentation is great, with the game looking like it was hand-drawn. The soundtrack felt limited, with a few songs that quickly looped as you played. The game supports the DualSense haptic feedback features, but in an annoying way – so much so that you might be inclined to disable them from the settings menu.

This game features a full trophy list with 36 Bronze trophies, 8 Silver trophies, and 3 Gold trophies, which means there’s a Platinum trophy for you to try to add to your collection. This one will require a lot of work since you’ll need to finish the game without using a single hint and complete a daily challenge for 75 days, along with many miscellaneous trophies. It is also Cross-Buy between the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions if you want to achieve a second Platinum trophy.

If you’re looking at more A Little to the Left, there’s a DLC called Cupboards & Drawers. This DLC expands the base game with similar original puzzles around the general theme of – you guessed it cupboards and drawers. It’s available for $5.99, and it offers 25 new levels for you to take on, as well as some additional interludes featuring the feline entity that is always ready to mess things up for you. If you get the DLC, you’ll be able to work on an extra 7 Bronze trophies and one Gold trophy.

A Little to the Left is a puzzle game in which you might not understand at first what is expected of you to solve each situation. I liked how original the puzzles were, but some of the puzzles can feel a bit tedious. A Little to the Left is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $14.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.

This A Little to the Left review is based on a PlayStation 5 copy provided by Secret Mode.
