But to achieve that, you must do much more than just push the button. There is a current generator on each of the boards, linked to the fan through a path. Problem is, the path is broken in several places. To ensure that the current reaches the fan uninterrupted, you must create an electric arc wherever the circuit was damaged. Expand

    Run The Fan is a challenging and fun pick up and play puzzle game that is more about planning your next move than anything else. If you like puzzle games that test your wit and ability to execute difficult maneuvers under pressure, then this is a great game for you.

    Run the Fan does a good job of running with its concept. It's a simple game in execution, and it may not be the flashiest title, but it provides some good challenge without feeling impossible. It may not have anything beyond its campaign mode, but the level size is decent, and the fact that there's no other puzzle game like it on the Switch makes it intriguing. Given the title's very low price of $4, puzzle fans can enjoy Run The Fan as a good appetizer leading up to meatier puzzle fare.

    Overall, Run The Fan is an interesting approach to puzzle solving, but isn’t completely rounded out with its’ features. That said, it is definitely worth a look if you are in the market for another inexpensive puzzle-game.

    Run The Fan updates the old marble in a maze Labyrinth game with a fresh concept and great visuals but it isn't able to escape the repetitive gameplay due to a lack of difficult levels.
