Cute, joyous and packing in an important message to boot, I adore Loddlenaut. This is the epitome of relaxing, stress-free gaming, with the only thing you need to worry about being keeping your oxygen topped up. Cleaning up the oceans is fulfilling in a way that few video games are – and getting to interact with the adorable loddles is simply a bonus you’re going to want to keep coming back for.

Simple mechanics make underwater cleaning enjoyable and meditative, and it's rewarding to see nature reappearing due to our efforts. A captivating atmosphere with colorful visuals, a soft soundtrack and lots of pet fish make the adventure even more enchanting. For those looking for a few hours of uncomplicated relaxation, Loddlenaut and its ocean cleansing are a great option.

It won't challenge you in any shape or form, but Loddlenaut is a feel-good, low-stakes ocean clean-up adventure that scratches that PowerWash itch with charm and characterful precision.
