Keeping aristocrats' clothes clean is a tough job, but the loyal staff are keen to fulfil their duty. The variety of cloak materials makes it possible for all the one hundred plus levels to all be engaging and feel a challenge. Their exact thoughts about their demanding masters unknown, there is no doubt that Puddle Knights is a novel addition to Nintendo Switch, with plenty to keep minds occupied in seeking safe passage in this puzzler. Understanding the mechanics is simple, but conquering all levels including the harder ones will take a lot of practice.

Puddle Knights is one of those puzzle games that you can breeze through the first few stages of easily enough. Then you arrive at the more challenging puzzles, any one of those you can stare at a for twenty minutes without progress. Until that light bulb in your brain goes ping and inspiration strikes and you can solve it. Puddle Knights has all the right components that make it a brilliant, head-scratching, brain-melting, entertaining puzzle game. One I can recommend to gamers who enjoy this style of puzzle games as much as I do.
