The Bridge feels right on the Switch hardware, specifically in handheld mode. The atmospheric music, mind-boggling physics mechanics and abstract visual style all amalgamate together to produce one of the best Puzzle games currently available on the platform. With the games' improbable extra challenges and post-game levels, It's sure to keep you going back for quite some time. Providing you don't go insane first.
While there is already an excessive amount of puzzle games for the Switch, The Bridge manages to stand out with its trippy art style and unique gameplay. It may be a bit sluggish and frustrating at some points, but it can easily be enjoyed in short sessions, taking advantage of the Switch’s portability.
Puzzle games always work great on a handheld console, and The Bridge is a nice fit for the Nintendo Switch. The visuals may be basic, but the puzzles are anything but. For players who want to step away from the bright colours and action gameplay found on most Switch titles, The Bridge makes a perfect palette cleanser that is sure to challenge the brain cells.
An endearing combination of influences from art and science makes The Bridge a valuable addition to the Nintendo Switch library, especially if you've never played it before.
Sometimes bogged down by showing off its aesthetic strengths at the sacrifice of fully exploring the puzzle ideas and mechanics, The Bridge does suffer slightly due to slow controls and a story/ character that deserves a little more nuance to back up its ambitious and academic influences. What it does do, however, is reward players' patience, calculation and observation with moments that rival some of the best in the genre.
A genuinely interesting and challenging experience that, despite a few small flaws, will stretch mental as well as physical muscles.
