Swim Out - Trailer
Swim Out is simple and unambitious but that doesn't mean it cannot provide some hours of fun. While its minimal aesthetics and lack of plot show right away that this game is not trying to set a new landmark in storytelling, its contents and unusual approach to puzzle games are worthy of praise and can most definitely be of use to players looking for a simple and direct game of this kind.

Pacing issues notwithstanding, Swim Out succeeds when played for a few minutes here and there. It's non-linear nature (and lack of a timer) allows you to take your time with each puzzle, and easily move on to another. Puzzle enthusiasts will get a good Nintendo Switch game at a fair price, one that will exercise their brains. Just make sure to wait 30 minutes after eating before playing.
