Zenge is a deliciously psychedelic and hypnotic blend of stunning artwork, mixed with a soothingly zen fused meditative soundtrack.

From the beginning, it’s clear that players are under no rush, in a pursuit to tackle its many puzzles and advancing difficulty. Each puzzle on completion, reveals a picture and each stunning picture depicts the advancing story of a man called Eon. A lonely figure on a journey between the worlds and time.

Each puzzle comprises of a number of shapes that are fixed to rails. These can be moved with the right stick, whilst the left stick selects each shape. The plan of the whole completed part is there to see, but can you move each shape to its corresponding position in the plan?

The experience you get, is one of calm tranquility, with puzzles that gently tax your mind without blowing it! It also reminded me of those times when you get a package of flatpack disassembled furniture! Each page of the instruction sheet, needing careful study and small parts needing to be built first. In order to fit into another part, and constructing to a final finished piece!

It seems apparently clear,there has been a lot of time and effort put into this game. The artwork distinctively sharp, bright and imprinting its strangely mystical story into the players mind,with the pleasant incentive to continue onto the next puzzle/picture. Whilst the puzzles are all cleverly devised and a joy to play and satisfying in attempts to solve.

Zenge could well satisfy the non-puzzler players out there. With no tutorial or hints here, this title really wants you to discover and experience, rather than burden you with progression sacrificed for the sake of a solution.

Top notch..

Spent over 40 years gaming and played plenty of titles over plenty of platforms. Handheld consoles seemed a natural progression with their portability and ease of use, and with technology forever advancing. It’s now great to play titles I used to play all those years ago…on the go! Switch and Vita are my two main favourites and any title with dark themes ..RPGs, first person or rogue-like my main interest…

Have your say!
