Critic Reviews for Claybook

Claybook is a great pick-up-and-play game for the Switch that young players will enjoy. It’s also good for anyone that just wants a relaxing puzzle experience to unwind with.

Just like kids playing with plasticine, Claybook is good-hearted and full of creativity, but has more than often hazardous results. In other words, while the concept looks good, it's not well modeled enough concerning gameplay and ergonomics.

Claybook offers an enjoyable, lighthearted atmosphere, but the game's environmental puzzles fail to stay interesting or satisfying for long.

Claybook is admittedly ambitious. It's also quite a nice looking and unique game, with commendable user features. Yet it struggled to command my attention, lacking elements to maintain interest beyond a few minutes at a time. The community creations do help here to an extent, but the overall experience needs to be tightened, and perhaps reigned in a bit.

Claybook puts the players into a world of clay creation and imagination to solve puzzles while getting your hands dirty. Its vibrant, whimsical colors and designs evoke a child-like wonder for creation over the course of its twenty levels, but it falls short by gating content behind an ambiguous rating system.

Claybook provides a soothing sandbox experience that is only hampered by the lack of variety in premade levels currently on offer by the community.

Claybook is a game that could’ve easily built upon its foundation (like actual clay) with a little bit of better programming and the inclusion of more options. As it stands, the potential is there to be a truly great game, but it’s not quite strong enough to get there. Not yet, anyway.

All in all, Claybook has its faults, but there’s a lot to love that makes any blemishes worth tolerating.
