Reviews

Puzzle and strategy game fans are guaranteed to enjoy their time with Quench. I can only, however, recommend the PC version of the game, as the Switch iteration, ultimately feels gimped in comparison.

Quench is at its best when you're working your way through the various puzzles and taking in the sweet, enjoyable scenery. The worst parts show themselves when you move through that scenery, though. The technical aspects sorely drag it down despite some ingenuity in the puzzles and a wealth of charm.

Quench is an okay puzzle game that has a few solid mechanics with a noteworthy art style, but its linearity and awkward controls don't help offset the somewhat steep asking price.

I found Quench to be a rather charming adventure that will let you appreciate the delicate balance of nature and the beauty of life in the wild.
