If you enjoy a good puzzle game, Archaica will not let you down. It is detailed, it evolves as you play, and it poses a challenge to the player without losing its style. The game’s design in art, sound and indeed lighting is a pleasure to behold as you enjoy these aspects too. What you shouldn’t go in looking for however is anything too revolutionary. Whilst the presentation is fresh and new, the ideas are traditional as puzzle games go. This doesn’t let the game down, but it is worth bearing in mind when you decide what price tag the experience is worth to you.
