Lost in Play - Launch Trailer - Nintendo Switch

Before I begin my review I would like to point out that the following game "Lost In Play" was provided to me for free by the developers and publishers. Therefore I would like to thank the developer/publisher for providing a free copy of the game to play for this review.

Lost In Play is a puzzle point-and-click game that was recently released on PC and Nintendo Switch. In Lost In Play you join a brother and sister on a heartwarming journey as they discover dream worlds and make friends with mystical creatures. Toto and Gal are lost in their imaginations and have to work together to piece together their way home. You'll feel like you're playing a cartoon while playing this charming puzzle adventure game!

 

I originally played the demo on PC a while back and fell in love with the game, so I was very happy and thankful when I was provided with the Nintendo Switch version, as I wanted to make a comparison between the two. I can say that the game does port over to the switch very well.

The graphics and gameplay are adorable. I loved the story of how the sister is really trying to engage with her older brother, who seems to have some angst and would just rather play his video games. He does finally give in and the two go on an amazing adventure. I also loved the puzzles in the game, they were challenging enough that they didn't take away from the game itself and make you want to quit the game.

I do love the fact that the game is on Nintendo Switch as I tend to take my switch for long rides and when I travel places. So having that portability is really nice. I am not sure if the game runs on Steam Deck as I don't own one of those yet, but it is nice to still have something to portable play the game on.

When it came to the controls for the game, it did take some getting used to. Some point-and-click adventure games are a little difficult on the Switch, but this one handled very well, once you got used to the controls. As I said earlier I played this on a computer with a mouse. So as long as you are comfortable with the Switch's controls then you'll have no problem loving this game.

Overall, if you are a fan of point-and-click puzzle games, then I recommend giving Lost in Play a try. If you are nervous about playing because you don't typically like point-and-click games, I would still say give it a try. The game does offer a hint button so that you can continue to play the game and have fun with it. From what I saw of the hint button there is no limit to how many times you can use it. Therefore, this game is suited for those who may not enjoy these types of games.

If you would like to play Lost In Play for yourself you can do so by purchasing it via Steam or Nintendo Switch for $19.99 USD. There is also a Free Demo on Steam so you can try it out before you buy it.
