Violett channels Salvador Dali and Tim Burton in a surreal and challenging tale.

Players are bound to get some fun out of solving the challenging conundrums in Violett, which is a refreshing change from the often far too easy puzzlers we see nowadays, but it simply isn't enough to strongly recommend a title that frustrates more often than not.

At its heart Violett is a classically designed point-and-click adventure, warts and all. It tells an interesting tale in a world filled with oddity and excitement, but it's told in an unintuitive manner that only the most stalwart fan of the genre will likely stick with. It tries to cast its net wide by offering a clever hint system to help players survive its obtuse nature, but nevertheless only the most patient will try to come back out of the rabbit hole.

Violett is priced at $9.99 on Steam, which is exactly what a game like this should cost. It's also on sale for 30% off over the holidays, and includes the lovely soundtrack with a purchase; a pretty solid deal. This game has some challenging puzzles, as well as a trippy world that is worth checking out if you are into adventure games. It's certainly a capable title with admittedly only a few issues, although the problems that do occur stand pretty firmly in the way of finding it truly enjoyable.

Adventure games thrive on compelling stories and a solid sense of logic, and Violett has neither. More criminally, the logic underlying the game's systems seems to be broken, making it nearly unplayable.

I wanted to like Violett, but it just required more patience than I was willing to give.

So overall, Violett is an okay game on the PC, albeit with some really strange puzzles, but a lot of the negative points about it could easily be solved by playing this on a tablet, or a touchscreen PC instead.

Violett is a fun point and click game that doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it is a release that will keep you entertained from start to finish.

Violett is a fun adventure game that you should play on Nintendo Switch. The graphics alone are worth the purchase alone, since this is a very pretty and vibrant adventure with a great art style. While it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it certainly doesn't need to. It's a bit more linear than what you're probably used to play in this genre, but don't let that get in the way of your enjoyment! It's a short game that doesn't overstay its welcome, so you should set aside an afternoon to dive into the world of Violett!

Violett itself is an enjoyable point and click adventure, but it also has so many glitches and even a game-breaking bug that renders it pointless for purchase on Nintendo Switch. Since the error stems from the touch screen controls, anyone intrigued by this would be better off trying out Violett Remastered on PC to witness its charms without the problems.
