Making the perfect meal for a feline fellow may be a tricky endeavour but it's one that's impressively rewarding. Meow.

Inbento is a puzzler that makes its way to the Nintendo Switch after its premiere in the mobile market and while this is certainly no blockbuster AAA work, Inbento is certainly a gem of its own. Simple but endearing, with its kittens, charming puzzles and lovely looks, Inbento may not aim for the title of game of the year but it definitely gets something right in its formula and aims straight at the players' softest side.

Inbento is cute, has simple mechanics, and doesn't require tedious amounts of hours to master it. There are over one hundred levels, and it has a low price point, meaning you'll never have to worry that you didn't get enough for your money. Plus, those cutscenes make it so worthwhile to finish a level.

Lunchboxes are great. Mostly. One day you have a nice butty, maybe a cheesy dipping snack or a bag of crisps. The next day you crack open your box and your damn Capri Sun leaked all over the goods. inbento is a quaint puzzle game all about arranging your bento box and making sure it never disappoints. So, pay attention, keep it tidy and take your time, because no one wants a soggy lunch.

Small bugbear aside, inbento is so charming and simple that it is hard to put down once it gets going. It's a solid puzzle title that starts out super easy and accessible, but ramps up far enough to challenge players who want more. It's a great little package full of heart that deserves a pickup from puzzle fans.

inbento is a joyful little game that's wonderfully presented. It's perhaps too challenging for young kids, however, and not varied enough for adults. That doesn't mean it's not worth playing, but rather—like lunch itself—that it's best enjoyed if you and a youngster can share the time spent with it.

Part of Inbento's appeal is the strong cat theme, which matched with cute puzzles to solve, makes it a good fit for the Nintendo Switch. The desire to find out what happens to the cat characters is motivation when facing a tough puzzle that seems unsolvable. The limited number of moves is not as limiting as it sounds because there is no limit to how many times the puzzle can be attempted, nor are there time limits, making it easy to dip in and out.
