    Although there may be plenty of options in this genre, Shift Quantum stands out with its polished look, unique concept, and a soundtrack though unremarkable, never wears out its welcome. If the prospect of new puzzles is appealing, it’s reasonable to assume consistent new content since the community has existed since the first version of Shift released as a flash game back in 2008.

    While we are still not sure we found happiness at the end of our journey, we were certainly blissfully making our journey there. If that doesn’t make Shift Quantum a very successful mind prison, we don’t know what will.

    Shift Quantum makes clever use of its Shifting mechanic, truly testing your ability to analyse and break down each puzzle within its dark, dystopian world. Some may find the difficulty a little off-putting but for those hungry for the challenge, a one hundred-plus puzzle campaign and user-created content should more than satisfy those needs.

    One of the most innovative and creative game in the genre of puzzles in recent years. Its original approach can be seen a little handicapped by its repetitive visual style, but the truth is that Shift Quantum will keep us hooked, wishing to escape this "mental prison" where Axion Vergo promised us happiness.

    Making a strength of its simplicity, it presents the player a challenging campaign, well designed levels with a perfectly appropriate difficulty level and a nicely presented and enjoyable content. While it may feel too simple at some moments, Shift Quantum is a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch library.

    I made a loss meme in the level editor, and it turned out a lot better than I expected.
