    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.

    Figment is a beautifully made puzzle-adventure action game that sits among the finest indie games on Switch. The gorgeous storybook art style, sweeping soundtrack, enjoyable puzzles, and the thought-provoking storyline is what makes Figment a must-play experience. The pacing, humour, and creativity are all top notch, and it sets everything up for a hard-hitting and memorable finale.

    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.

    It’s clear that a lot shown in Figment is not what the focus of the experience, it’s the puzzles, which don’t always stick the landing. A handful of exceptions crop up, but not nearly as many as I would have liked. Check out Figment if you’re interested in taking on a puzzle adventure indie, with some cute visual touches, and can handle a little puzzle fatigue.

    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.

    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.

The art is amazing, the puzzles are fairly difficult and the combat is ok, considering it is not this game's focus. Despite its childish appearence, it is a really good choice for adults.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game was a bitter sweet experience for me. One one hand the story is compelling, the arts and grafics are absolutely beautiful. But a game simply can’t sustain just from that . Unfortunately I had a couple of bugs and crashes. The character movements are very slow (tedious) and the loading as well. Some puzzles look like are for grownups (very brainy) . By that I mean not for the young unless you are gifted. Some puzzles/clues are outlandish, like the one of the pipe organ. I’m a seasoned professional musician and there was no sense in the puzzle (had to use trial and error a million times). I guess devs do this to extend the gameplay time. Bad devs! The voices/dialogs are like little children’s storytelling. It’s cute and all but after 30 minutes of that, it becomes really annoying. Like I said before , it’s sad because of the love put into this game and the art , music and ambiance , which are on point. It’s just the gameplay/action that makes it tedious. For the art and music I would give a 10 but for the gameplay I would give a seven. So I would go for an 8 just because there was a lot of love put into this game.’ Expand

The original songs and music were funA quirky action/adventure with engaging puzzle elements. Art style is filled with humor and surrealism. The original songs and music were fun and contributed a lot to the atmosphere. At times, the voice acting falls flat, and in certain parts, the sound editing made for some weird overlaps. I found the story to be a tad predictable, so the emotional payoff wasn't as impactful as I imagine the developers would have liked it to be. Expand

I think theA small genre game with distinctive style and clever idea, the main gameplay is a puzzle adventure with simple combat mechanics. I think the stage design of the first boss city and the boss battle are the best. It combines puzzle solving with simple combat elements ingenuously. The stage design of the last boss city is a bit disgusting. I don't know why it seems when designing the stages with the box, the puzzle gameplay will lose its "spirituality" and look "bloated", and there are some bugs in the design, but fortunately I found a blunt and ugly way to pass it. the final boss battle reminds me of The design of the second boss battle of “Metroid: Survival” , of course, its boss is not so "perverted" (meaning the attack form is variable, the difficulty is stepped up, and the fault tolerance rate is low), but its combat system can't keep up with... It causes a little bit clumsy, and it's a pity that it didn't design puzzle solving, which lost the unique fun of puzzle games. In short, the final boss battle was a bit suffocating, and there was no satisfaction after defeating the enemy. (An afternoon to clear the game. The screen of this game seems to have certain requirements for GPU, playing with the switch will heat up and drop frames... Expand

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 Expand
