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.

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 deserves a lot of credit for being as unique and enjoyable as it is.

It's not groundbreaking and it's fairly short. But it has a lot of potential, and I hope it continues to be supported. The online works well, despite being a bit basic, but the editor is pretty robust if you can get past the learning curve.

Claybook is a great puzzle game for all younger players and is a great source of easy completion for all the achievement hunters. Otherwise? Not that good of a game.

Developer Second Order have come up with something that's really impressive for an in-house developed technology for the physics handling of the clay. This game might feel more like an extended tech demo to some, but for a couple of bucks, it'll be worth playing. And hopefully, the future will give us a more complete game that makes use of that technology, which could surely provide a whole lot of fun.

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.

Overall, Claybook‘s presentation isn’t bad, it’s just completely ordinary. Which is a brand that Claybook never really elevates itself above

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 is a racing game, a physics platformer, and a resource management game at different points, existing as a kind of playground for numerous different experiences of wildly varying quality, but all of this evens out into a “jack of all trades, master of none” type of game that’s surprisingly easy to walk away from.

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