It looks gorgeous on the Switch, both in handheld and when docked, and all of the gorgeous artwork stuns with every scene. It is the music, however, that stands out amongst everything else. Each boss has a song to accompany it, and every song in the game is catchy, with great lyrics that compliment the writing of the entirety of Figment. I adore this game, and with the ability to take it on your travels I’d highly recommend you play this now.
While the puzzles aren't a huge draw, the look and presentation of the game are so unique and interesting that the game's still really easy for me to recommend. It's poetic, and while maybe not incredibly deep, does excellent work with bringing the nightmares to life and infusing their songs with the fear and dread they represent. Fear is the mind killer – and your quest to vanquish those fears is one you'll enjoy going on.
In the long run, I imagine it’ll be those nightmarish enemies I remember about Figment, not the so-so puzzles and combat. As a game, I could basically take Figment or leave it. But as an experience — as a surreal musical that explores some pretty dark places — Figment is definitely different than almost anything else out there.
Figment means action. Wonderful arts and an unconventional story are the things that Figment brings us. This game also moves us to the world of mental states where we will fight against nightmares and fears found there.
Figment is an adventure game that proposes something unusual but not any less topical and relevant: how to deal with depression. With that in mind, the game presents a series of very attractive-looking hand-drawn sets that come to life during the game and a dynamic soundtrack that follows the players during the puzzle-solving duties. While the game's combats feel too simple and the puzzles are somewhat repetitive, this is without a doubt a very good approach to a complex theme and which will appeal to fans of adventure and puzzle games alike.
Your quest to help Dusty bring peace to the mind again is memorable, even if the adventure is an uneven one. It’s a journey that’s ridden with cringeworthy puns, but made all the more worthwhile thanks to the way that Dusty and Piper bounce off one another and take comfort in the silliness of it all. The lesson that Figment imparts, though, is that if you can summon up enough courage you can fight through your fears rather than let them cripple you forever. The bad jokes thrown in letting you shake off some nerves along the way.
Figment’s mechanics are woefully underdeveloped, but the rest of the game is so cohesive and often brilliant that it’s difficult to dismiss out of hand. The ambient soundtrack, and especially the boss songs go a long way and are worth playing through the slight, five hour game to hear if that interests you at all. If not, the gameplay can be downright boring at times.
figment is a pretty good game when it comes to music, design, concept and puzzles. unfortunately, it lacks in combat and its story is very short and simple. although, it is a great experience for a low cost.
Following a traumatic event nightmarish creatures begin to take over the mind of an unknown victim, and it is up to Dusty and Piper to try to restore peace.
Figment combines solid (if unremarkable) combat and platforming with puzzles that offer a challenge without ever become to obtuse. Alongside a fairly interesting, and well told, story the end result is a decent little game that offers good value for it’s relatively low price.
The art is good, the gameplay is engaging, and the puzzles are good. Had some issues with glitches and lagging. I think I would have been happier with this game if it were a touch shorter, because I got bored with it several times before finishing it. I also ended up using walkthroughs more than I would have liked. The voice acting and music were good, and the game does look good. The story was definitely interesting, well developed, and emotional.
I had this in my PS4 watchlist forever and then my Switch and I thought it's on sale, it'll be great, give it a whirl and see what the craic is. Damn boring is what it is. It was instantly dislikeable. It felt like a complete mismatch of everything, like nothing went together at all. I love music and this games music got raved about.. it was a bit crap, the art style was lame, the whole scenario was lame, I just hated it and deleted it and glad to say I got it in the sale. I just bought Kamiko about a week before this and for the same price range, Kamiko smashed Figment
