Yuso offers a charming puzzle game experience that can be enjoyed at home or on the go. There's a nice challenge to the levels without being irritating. The atmosphere of the world and levels create a peaceful space for players to enjoy for awhile. It isn't long, but it's definitely worth your time.
Yuso lands in the Nintendo Switch in the company of many other puzzle games and if it does not reinvent the wheel, it is undoubtedly fun and entertaining enough to keep players around it for a few hours thanks to its simple but challenging and compelling gameplay. It does feel like it was designed with smaller platforms in mind and this is further attested by its rather short content.

Yuso is a casual puzzle game that you can pick up and play whenever you want. The gameplay is satisfying, yet mindless to sit back and relax.
Frustratingly, the 100th stage may have a bug that makes it impossible to complete, and not being able to finish the final stage was thoroughly unsatisfying. Yuso makes a good first impression, but it becomes stale fairly quickly. I can recommend it only to people who want an easy-to-play but shallow puzzler to while away a couple of hours.
Yuso is a fun minimalist puzzler on Nintendo Switch that will grab your attention from start to finish. Depending on your experience with puzzle games you could be done with the game in 2-4 hours at most, so do keep that in mind before buying this one!
As a puzzler, Yuso is definitely a mixed bag.
Yuso is an adorable puzzle game that anyone can play with ease.
Yuso is a mediocre puzzle game that did very little to keep me hooked. The game lacks that “just one more turn” aspect needed for a puzzle game to be considered a classic. Some will probably find some redeeming qualities here, but there are way better puzzle games to consider before purchasing this one.
As a whole Yuso has a very cute and clean look that pairs up well with its tough puzzle goodness. What makes it work so well are the multiple layers of Yuso types, the rules that govern them, and the tricky way many of the puzzles have been crafted. Even ones that can appear to be simple can hide gotchas in how you’ll need to execute them to be successful. About the only caveat I would offer is that there’s nothing that clearly makes the Switch necessary for this experience, it would likely even scale down well onto a mobile phone and look good given its very clean look. That said, if the Switch is your preferred platform for puzzling it’s another very different option for your library.
