Ultimately, "Figment" is a well-designed adventure game that looks to flatter the senses with its levity and zest for life.

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' wants to tap into the limitless potential of the mind, but ultimately comes up with a safe, mostly uninspired puzzle adventure. Rich music and some clever brain-teasers highlight the 4-5 hours of gameplay, but tedious mechanics and solutions, as well as repetitive visuals that can't quite capture the imagination, keep the game from realizing its full potential.

A beautifully drawn world, great soundtrack, and solid puzzle/level design throughout. The game may suffer from awkward movement and long loading times, but it is worth it.

Your quest to help Dusty bring peace to the mind again is memorable, even if the adventure is an uneven one. It’s a journey that’s ridden with cringeworthy puns, but made all the more worthwhile thanks to the way that Dusty and Piper bounce off one another and take comfort in the silliness of it all.

This short little adventure is sometimes laborious, but it’s all so charmingly presented that any flaws are easily forgiven.

What players will find with Figment is a game that paces itself well to create a world that tackles the inner demons of its protagonist in a way that is simultaneously light hearted and without trivialising the seriousness of the themes. If for no other reason, you should look at this one for its art direction alone. It really is gorgeous.

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.

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.

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.
