Critic Reviews for Tangle Tower

Tangle Tower is a delightful time all the way through. Its gorgeous art style, animation, intriguing mystery, and full voice acting make it stand out, even among the best of its contemporaries. While the ending does feel rushed, there's still plenty here to love and it only makes me want more of Detective Grimoire and Sally's sleuthing.

Tangle Tower is a very excellent presentation of a very short game. It feels like a mobile game, and has a very short play time of 5 hours, with no incentive to replay. If this was a $5 game it would be a lot easier to recommend, but as it stands,

‎This proposal requires dedication, patience and a lot of reading. Although it has no action, it has a simple story that causes curiosity and will surely make you have a good time. It is important to be the age as recommended by the game (13 years) because you will undoubtedly have to analyze, interact and put everything of yourself. In some moments it becomes somewhat monotonous, but it leads you to that need for closure, to know who is to blame and see that list of credits at the end so longed for.‎

Tangle Tower - REVIEW (Nintendo Switch) video thumbnail

Tangle Tower is an exemplary addition to the point-and-click genre, providing superb puzzles and very well written dialogue, backed up by some of the finest voiceover work in recent memory. A few of the character interactions may drag on a bit too long in places as you try and uncover every piece of evidence available to you, and there's little reason to play through the game multiple times. But to be honest, these are very minor gripes considering just how much fun we had in the company of Detectives Grimoire and Sally.

I can tell a lot of passion went into this game. There are just so many details, and the character's personalities are really reflected in body language and vocals. I would highly recommend you check out Tange Tower. It's amazing!

The overall case is somewhat neat and tidy - it won't take you much more than a few hours to solve the mystery - but the journey along the way is enjoyable. The voice acting and standout art and animation fits the distinctive characters very well, and with few exceptions, the puzzles and deduction sequences are engaging and brain-wrinkling. I hope this is the start of a new era in Detective Grimoire's career, because I wouldn't mind revisiting this world and gameplay style again soon.
