    Part of Inbento's appeal is the strong cat theme, which matched with cute puzzles to solve, makes it a good fit for the Nintendo Switch. The desire to find out what happens to the cat characters is motivation when facing a tough puzzle that seems unsolvable. The limited number of moves is not as limiting as it sounds because there is no limit to how many times the puzzle can be attempted, nor are there time limits, making it easy to dip in and out.

    inbento is a sublimely sweet and thoroughly addictive puzzler that deserves a place in any puzzle fan’s collection, even if you’re a dog person at heart. You monster.

    Inbento is a joyful little game that’s wonderfully presented. It’s perhaps too challenging for young kids, however, and not varied enough for adults. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing, but rather—like lunch itself—that it’s best enjoyed if you and a youngster can share the time spent with it.

    Inbento is a nice, little and clever puzzle game that could easily steal some hours of your life if you like puzzles and cats.

    Inbento is cute, has simple mechanics, and doesn’t require tedious amounts of hours to master it. There are over one hundred levels, and it has a low price point, meaning you’ll never have to worry that you didn't get enough for your money. Plus, those cutscenes make it so worthwhile to finish a level.

    Simple but by no means empty, Inbento does not feature any major thrills or breathtaking ups and downs but it definitely provides a heart-filling experience, complete with kittens and a welcoming audiovisual environment.

    Making the perfect meal for a feline fellow may be a tricky endeavour but it's one that's impressively rewarding. Meow.

New mechanics get slowly introduced into the simple gameplay. The first levels are easy however it took me some tries to finish levels later on. The presentation is really pleasant. Overall it feels like a well rounded experience. Expand
