Access Denied is a rather forgettable puzzle game that doesn't do enough with its mechanics to justify a recommendation. While there are scant moments of brilliance, there isn't much here to excite even the biggest puzzle fans.

Overall, Access Denied was disappointing to me as I expected more puzzles, a plot to serve as a backdrop to give the initiative to solve the boxes, and smoother controls.

Access Denied is a simple logic game where you are tasked with openning boxes locked with some tricky locks. Across all 36 levels you need to flip switches, build circuits and fill tanks with liquids. Nice and relaxing, also easy Gamerscore and platinum trophy.

If you're looking for a logic-based puzzle game to eat up a few hours of your time, Access Denied is perfect for you. Although it lacks instructions or exposition on what you're doing and how to do it, as long as you're good at problem-solving, you'll have no issues working out the solution to each of the puzzles presented before you. Don't let the low number of puzzles put you off either, some of them will take 30-60 seconds and some may take upwards of ten minutes due to their complexity and crypticness. I do believe the game would most likely control better on a device with mouse or touch though, such as the PC and/or the Switch/Vita.
