At its best, which is when a level is at just the right difficulty for the individual player, Nuclien provides a very smooth, fast-paced, and satisfying number puzzle experience. The aesthetic is pleasing for the most part, and blasting your way through intricate layouts feels great. With only a couple of hours' worth of content on offer, all of which is based around the same concept, Nuclien does feel a little bare-bones (although, in fairness, this is reflected in the asking price). It won't wow or amaze you as you play, but it isn't a bad way to pass the time, either - especially if you enjoy quick reflex puzzles on the go.
Nuclien is an original and challenging puzzle game and while it doesn't revolutionize the world around itself, it still represents an interesting and pleasant experience. It does feel too short and there's a feeling that it doesn't compel the player to return to it once finished but overall, Nuclien passes the test.

Nuclien is a fun and fast-paced puzzle release on Nintendo Switch that you're either going to love or hate. The simple gameplay mechanics and overall difficulty curve feel just right, but this is the type of game that is definitely not for everyone. The minimalist graphics make it easier to focus on what is going on in the screen, but if you're into flashy games with lots of visual effects, then this one is not for you.
