Critic Reviews for Voxelgram
Voxelgram is a brilliant 3D Picross game, exactly what the Switch has been waiting for. Whether you wish to use your Joy-Cons and play on the TV, or utilise your fingers and touch the screen, the game is very simplistic and intuitive in its design, ensuring that everyone can simply pick it up and play without any issues. My personal preference was to use the official Nintendo Stylus as it filled me with nostalgia for similar games back on the Nintendo DS and 3DS. If you’re a fan of Picross puzzles, or simply logic-based puzzles in general, Voxelgram is a no-brainer – you should buy this game.
I went into this wanting to like it. Unfortunately, while the graphics are nice, the game is just too difficult and navigationally awkward to enjoy for me. I think with a couple of navigation tweaks and more complete numbering this would be a very fun and challenging puzzler, but for me it was bit too frustrating.
In conclusion, Voxelgram offers a fully functioning and enjoyable take on the Picross 3D formula. It really doesn’t do much besides offer a new set of puzzles to take up in the absence of Jupiter’s offerings, but considering how much 2D picross-esque games have been milked on the Switch eShop as of late, it’s very nice to see the other side of the formula given some love, and while Voxelgram still has some clunky controls and doesn’t bother to add much new or do anything to the formula, it still was a fun puzzler and will definitely fill the Picross 3D void in your heart.
