A Fold Apart (Nintendo Switch)

Publisher: Lightning Rod Games

What I Paid: $6.74

Verdict: Not Shovelware. 100%ed it.

What I Say: This puzzle game’s conceit is to “fold” your screen in such a way that the protagonist can get to their objective. Perhaps there is a gap in a path – simply “fold” the screen to get rid of the gap.

There is a story of love and loss here to keep you motivated and by and large the puzzles are not too hard. I needed help with one of them, but otherwise eventually managed to work out all the rest on my own.
