Part Time UFO uses charm and creativity to create a great puzzle games. Carrying things with a claw and doing countless jobs is fun, mainly because of the wide variety of situations, which are even cooler in the company of a friend. Some moments are annoying, as they require a lot of precision and the controls don't always offer the needed accuracy - luckily, they are rare. The visual captivates with the use of lots of color and expressive characters, and there is a lot of content to explore in optional modes and challenges. In the end, Part Time UFO is a unique experience and a remarkable puzzle.

Nintendo Switch is a system that offers quite a few games or applications for players to have a good time. One of the best suggestions at the moment is HAL Laboratory’s new title.

It was a joy to visit Part Time UFO again outside of a smart phone. Being on Switch gives the game new life, and it’s more enjoyable than ever. Thanks to its varied levels and its ridiculously cute characters, you’ll come back to it again and again. Just don’t expect too much from its multiplayer mode.

Part Time UFO is simple, it's cute and it's a huge dose of fun. This port of the 2018 mobile game comes with numerous additions for Nintendo Switch, and might just be the best co-op title on the console for some time.

Part Time UFO is not an especially impressive game. I can’t imagine it being anyone’s game of the year. However, it is undeniably enjoyable, whimsical, and a blast to play with a younger player. With a nice little co-op mode, enjoyable visuals, and a competitive price point, this offering is pretty hard not to love – even if it does get a touch tedious after a little while. Maybe this isn’t a game you should binge, it’s something you’ll certainly enjoy part-time.

undefined.The lovable Jobski and his part-time endeavors are absolutely worth checking out on Switch. Even if you've already played the mobile version of Part Time UFO, this latest release adds co-op, and the adventure and stacking modes I mentioned earlier, so there's reason to jump back in. We all need a dose of pure happiness now and again, and if there's anything that comes out HAL's version of the classic claw machine, it's joy.

A physics based puzzler isn’t my idea of a good time and yet Jobski’s hard working charms won me over. I think this is a great game for couples or someone with a slightly older kid so you can spend a quick gaming session together. While it might only take a couple of hours to beat there’s plenty more to come back to.

A recommended physics-based puzzler. Overall, Part Time UFO is a good title for casual puzzle fans and it’s a great game for anyone in the mood for a charming puzzler with some fun gameplay.
