Lost in Play is an outstanding puzzle adventure game that can be played by everyone. The art design is fantastic, the puzzles are varied while offering a bit of a challenge, and it is just a wholesome story of two kids using their imaginations to create a world to have an adventure in. I would recommend this to anyone who wants something light hearted, whether you're playing alone or with family.

Some of its puzzles could be more kid-friendly, but Lost In Play is a charming point and click puzzler that really taps into the joy of childhood make-believe.

Lost in Play is an incredibly beautiful and exciting adventure that smears its target audience a little with simple puzzles for an adult audience and the lack of a coherent narrative. But, of course, with all the criticism, these 15 levels and four hours of play can give you a lot of fun and pleasure. And that's more than important now.

Over its five-or-so hours, Lost in Play barely puts a foot wrong, delivering cerebral gaming and effervescent entertainment. In doing so, it makes many of the genre’s design challenges look easy. Here’s hoping it inspires and influences future graphic adventures – or at least gets a sequel.

Lost in Play is a point-and-click adventure made of irreverent no-sense comedy, intuitive puzzles and puzzles not particularly stimulating, but layered enough to make you spend a handful of hours of fun.

A short, sweet romp through a world of dreams, Lost in Play is a joyful celebration of imagination and play. Its gorgeously familiar cartoonish visuals and focus on endearingly absurd scenarios win over the frostiest of hearts. While some of its trickier puzzles may leave younger gamers stumped and even frustrate their parents, it's impossible not to grin at the wacky antics Lost in Play loves to throw at you. Recommended as a little cosy treat for the young at heart.

It grabs and keeps your attention the entire time, making this game a joy to finish. It may lack a depth in its mechanics but makes up for its seamless animation and catchy musical score. It's a fantastic freshman offering from indie dev Happy Juice Games and promises a bright future of things to come.

Lost in Play doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it does refine it into something that directly speaks to our inner child. Its juxtaposition of simple point and click storytelling and challenging mini-games makes for a fantastic balance sure to keep things interesting. If you’re ready to explore every corner of your imagination (and then some), Lost in Play is all you’ll need to get started.

In summary Lost in Play is a great debut from this studio, and I’m eager to see what they come out with next. Fittingly for the game’s narrative there’s an overflow of imagination and charm to be found here in a compact package that won’t outstay its welcome; packed with story, puzzles and games that are clever and varied. And Goblin Poker, which might be worth the entry price alone.

Lost in Play is a simple adventure game that offers a pleasant story, likeable heroes and an interesting villain, however it doesn't use its potential to the fullest and it feels like the creators of the game just didn't have enough time to do everything they wanted.

Lost in Play keeps all of its promises, and it keeps them well. The gameplay can be tricky, but it is fun and exactly what you would expect from a point-and-click adventure time. The art style is incredible; the 2D graphics make it look straight out of a children’s program. The sound design is clever and helps to propagate the illusion of childhood. Every single element that makes up this game serves to create an atmosphere that feels unapologetically magical.

Simply, Lost in Play is a "non-toxic game" that can be recommended to any family member. You don't have to worry about complicated controls or wrap your head because of its difficulty. Moreover, every single visual in the game is heartwarming. However, it is sad that many things in the second half part seems to be left out a bit too much.

It's not easy, even with the huge variety of independent developments, to find something as complete as Lost in Play. To a simply formidable audiovisual invoice, with an exquisite work of animation, design and sound, is added a simple gameplay but that knows how to challenge the player, while maintaining an adequate pace of progress and narrative flow, with the addition of a help system so that everyone can enjoy in their own way and at their own pace an adventure that is clearly for all audiences.

Lost in Play is an all-ages video game in the purest sense as it's not exclusively a kids game but that it actually gives audiences of all age groups something different depending on their own worldview. It also has one of the most beautiful visual styles in years coupled with some innovative puzzles and a perfect score which put together makes Lost in Play an absolute must play for everyone.
