Nintendo handhelds have from the beginning been a power plant in the puzzle genre, fighting games that may have been lost in the bombastic, graphics-based arena of home consoles. The switch to the laptop / home console partition means it can maintain the proud, confusing tradition, while giving the rubber boots a chance to dive deeper than ever before into the ever-addictive world of puzzles.
Of course software avalanche on Switch can make it difficult to sort good & # 39; uns from not-so-good & # 39; uns . Don't Fear – We've donned our minds and water through the eShop to dig out twenty puzzles of all shapes and sizes that will put you on the right track. For the incredible Pocket Card Jockey bolts on Switch from 3DS, we just have to do it with this little party.
A real winner if the melon is not irretrievably twisted by code, 7 billion people squeezes the list thanks to its heady mix of confusing and Tomorrow Corps & A direct sequel to Human Resource Machine has what you program drones to solve increasingly complex number-based administration tasks, which can be quite impenetrable if you are not willing to buckle and process what it asks About you The developer's next project promises to be a "road trip adv enture ", and after two esoteric puzzles, we have got our fingers crossed so that it becomes a good treat for a wider audience, but the dopamine asked here when you finally break a code is really something, and we would recommend anyone head for it and try this.

Originally released on the Wii back in 2010, Art of Balance has appeared in some form on every Nintendo console page and we are not tired of it yet. You have fought this as the most persistent of enemies, gravity, by stacking shapes in such a way that they do not topple into a bowl of water. The construction only needs to survive three seconds without falling, but it can be tough when the figures become more cumbersome. With a variety of modes, the Zen-like setting and chillout soundtrack are the perfect accompaniments to the hard-earned frustration of trying to balance a triangle on a circle.

Toki Tori you have guided the title to collect their half-hatched friends as they sit around five worlds of maze-like levels. Based on the humble Game Boy Color, two tribal waddle puzzlers have seen more rerelease over the years, each with a fresh sip of paint and quality of life improvements, and it never looks better than on Switch. The rewind function is also a godsend – a wrong movement or abused start-up can make it impossible to collect these hatchlings.  Picross S2 (Switch eShop) “/>

You have to work very hard to destroy Picross so anyway Which version you have handy, it is sure to be fun. So why is this Switch version hanging around with the nosebleed on the back half of the list, please ask? Well, firstly, everything is worthy of investigation. Secondly, while S2 offers solid, no-frills Picross puzzling, we had welcomed a frill or two; touch screen support, for example. It is a fine tradition for these games on the Nintendo handheld series Picross e alone got nine listings on 3DS – so we are sure to see future iterations introducing some bells and whistles . Meanwhile, this will do well.
