Figment is a delightful isometric puzzler that skillfully uses storybook imagery to tackle weighty themes associated with trauma and depression.

What really stands out with Figment is the way that it deals with loss and despair whilst managing to be optimistic and uplifting.

Figment tackles a potentially emotional subject, but does so without depressing the player. Quite the opposite. Its gameplay and writing come together in such a charming and musical way, you'll find yourself smiling throughout.

A well put together action puzzler, Figment has truly outstanding musical work. It'd be a great game to discover with children, but you'd probably need one to get the most out of it.

Figment's mechanics are woefully underdeveloped, but the rest of the game is so cohesive and often brilliant that it's difficult to dismiss out of hand. The ambient soundtrack, and especially the boss songs go a long way and are worth playing through the slight, five hour game to hear if that interests you at all. If not, the gameplay can be downright boring at times.

Figment is a very attractive, fun game that tackles some serious issues. It however tackles these issues in a very light-hearted manner and I appreciated that. It's perhaps a bit easy and simple but it's fun, bright and colourful. It will not take up much of your time but you may just take something away from it about fighting your own personal nightmares.

Figment is an attractive, creative puzzler that explores the human mind's inner demons very nicely indeed. The gameplay is good, if never revolutionary, with just a handful of downers being present in an otherwise solid experience. The game's most creative moments – such as its boss battles – and the way in which it deals with its heavy subject matter are the real winners here, though, and should go a long way towards encouraging a purchase for those who are most interested.

Figment is an original adventure and puzzle game with a topic that carries an additional layer of importance, that of depression. Thanks to the game's impressive hand-drawn visuals and approach to the topic, fans of both adventure and puzzle games will find themselves enjoying Figment from the beginning to the end. While the combats are too simple and the puzzles become a bit repetitive after a while, this is a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.
