StarBlox Inc. is a fun and unique little experiment of a game, let down only by the results of that experiment that don't quite come together. At the same time. the sheer satisfaction that comes from victory helps overcome some of the fundamental flaws in the concept and the net result is an original, if convoluted, puzzle-fighter. Ultimately, this is a still an enjoyable title that gets a qualified recommendation.

StarBlox Inc. for the Nintendo Switch is what happens when a brawler and a puzzler intersect. Even if it's not the most gorgeous game ever made, this effort can provide some unmistakably fun hours, especially on multiplayer, as the puzzle-based combats advance and the variety of game modes allow for different variations of the experience.

The game's tutorial drags and for gaming novices, the mechanics and strategy will really not come naturally. There are many little things that you need to keep in mind to give you the edge in battle. Once you get the hang of the proceedings, though, it can become a highly competitive experience with each side fighting for total domination. The battle and puzzle combo is quite an adorable one that runs quite well on Nintendo Switch.
