Shift Happens is a rewarding and challenging puzzler that is especially enjoyable in co-op. The gradual introduction of new and increasingly complex mechanics is done right, and you'll feel on top of the world as you grow more adept at utilizing them.

You’ll be shifting between sizes many times throughout a level – but it’ll only work with solid communication.

Shift Happens is a fun puzzle game with colorful graphics and character design that oozes charm. There is a nice variety of puzzles that keep things feeling fresh so that you don't end up doing the same puzzle style over and over again. The amount of content is brilliant, and depending on your skill level, you're looking at 8-12 hours to complete everything the game has to offer. The two characters offer a lot of smart abilities for solving puzzles, and the puzzles themselves are very creative, giving your brain a decent workout.

All in all, I can say that without a doubt this is one of the best co-op puzzle platformers to hit the eShop's digital shelves. If you're looking for a good game to spend playing with your sibling, cousin, friend, or family member, definitely add this one to your Switch's library and prepare for the laughs and challenges to come.

Shift Happens is an enjoyable cooperative 2D puzzle platformer but it's unfortunately hindered by a limited solo experience as well as many irritating gameplay flaws.

there is a place for Shift Happens. A very specific place. So if you think you fancy a bit of a go on Shift Happens, I hope you had the foresight to procreate. If not, maybe leave it. The game that is. Procreate away.

Shift Happens isn’t exactly a bad co-op game, but it does suffer from some rather noticeable irritations and when joining a genre of successfully established titles, there really needs to be more on offer than that included.

Shift Happens is a very well polished coop adventure. A suitable designed learning curve, the minimalistic graphic and sound design and cool gameplay ideas all fit together perfectly and offer many unforgettable moments of jumping and running.
