The world of Archaica: The Path of Light is a gorgeous and remarkable place using simple mechanics involving beams of light and mirrors that is brilliantly done. You’ll need your spatial awareness and problem solving skills to be on form and working well to solve the puzzles. I never felt frustrated with the puzzles; between having the hints available to use, and no timer, you’re free to move the mirrors and splitters around the level at your own pace. Adding in new challenges and new concepts as the game progresses, the game always has something fresh ahead for the player. This stops the repetitive nature of some games settling in, and turns an otherwise simple premise into quite the detailed challenge. If you a big fan of puzzle games, I would recommend Archaica: The Path of Light take a spot on your Nintendo Switch.

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.
