Down in Bermuda
Top Critic Average
Down in Bermuda is a fun little puzzle-adventure. That said, I beat it in just over three (leisurely) hours. The $19.99 launch price is hard to justify, especially for a game whose mobile origins shine through in both looks and feel. So wishlist this one for a future sale.
Down in Bermuda is an entirely forgettable puzzle game that blends into the background of an oversaturated genre. What makes it stand out is the steep $20 price tag, made even more outlandish by the lack of content.
Figuring out the many puzzles within Down in Bermuda is a treat thanks to its laidback and adorable game world and simple gameplay.
Due to lackluster porting and misjudged value, Down in Bermuda is slated to be lost amongst genre fans' collective memories.
Down in Bermuda is the typical case of the game that has a lot of wasted potential. The premise is good, but the story is underdeveloped. The puzzles are, for the most part, simple-minded, and the action comes down almost exclusively to looking for orbs through the stage. Considering the short experience, it is difficult to recommend this title for puzzle solving fans. However, it is undeniable to say that being in this world is something comfortable and satisfying.

The only complaint I have about Down in Bermuda is you can’t see all of the island when you zoom out. But that’s down to the size of the screen on the Switch in handheld mode and not necessarily the games fault. I’ve throughly enjoyed the puzzles in Down in Bermuda, there are just the right kind of difficulty. Enough of a challenge to give you a feeling of satisfaction once you have completed them. Hunting down the orbs is entertaining as you search everywhere for all of them. And for that, I give it our highest praise!
Spending time in the Bermuda Triangle with Down in Bermuda on Xbox is tremendous. It's a game where you can just kick back and relax, solving puzzles in your own time without anything trying to kill you, or you ever needing to worry about silly time restraints.
