With the Holidays coming up, it seems like a good idea to help people who are looking for just the right new game to enjoy. So, we are making The Best Of lists: the best games that we know in a genre! Tried and tested by ourselves!

By now, there are so many good puzzle games on the Switch that it was hard to make a Best Of list. So we decided to just look at puzzlers released in 2020, to narrow it down. So these are the Best Puzzle games that have been released on Switch throughout the past year. All have been reviewed at one time or another on LadiesGamers and received our highest score of Two Thumbs Up. This article isn’t in any particular order, so let’s begin!

Combining sudoku-style number puzzles and block-dropping gameplay, the aim of TENS! is simple You place dice on the board, make ‘tens’ in any row or column and clear the board to win and that’s it!

TENS! is a relaxing puzzle game which offers tons of gameplay styles for you to choose from an immersive single-player Adventure mode, a local Multiplayer mode where you can challenge your friends and family, and an Endless mode which challenges your skill level. In TENS! there’s something for everyone to enjoy! I put my thoughts on TENS! in my review of the game.

Puddle Knights is a mud-based puzzle game where you arrange snake-like capes of chivalrous knights to cover puddles and other hazards. I reviewed Puddle Knights and I especially liked the humour in it, plus it’s tricky-at-times mud-based puzzling.

In this lighthearted medieval mindmuck you are helping the Nobles to reach their goal on the board! With 100 plus puzzles of increasing difficulty and playtime between 10 and 35 hours you certainly get your money’s worth.

ZHED

ZHED is a classic simple puzzle game. Based on a simple mechanic it builds onto increasingly complex puzzles that challenge you. With no timers, no clocks, no stars and no tricks, it’s just pure puzzles for you to relax and enjoy with.

In ZHED you tap a square and select a direction (upwards, downwards, to the left and to the right). You can then see how the square reacts when they intersect with each other and build a path to fill the goal square. Abbi put her thoughts of the game into her review of ZHED which you can find here.

In this puzzle game you guide your little train to the exit of each level, collect all of your gold that you lost to the Aliens and travel to new heights! Locomotion is a brilliant single-player train puzzle game. Sit back, relax and chill for an afternoon of excellent, entertainment and excitement, or, pick up and go as you solve puzzles on the move!

Locomotion

Locomotion is truly the perfect family-friendly casual puzzle game. You can grab a partner to help you figure out those extra tricky puzzles and enjoy the journey together as you chug along in your train. I took a ride on the train in Locomotion for my review of the game.

You play as Jobski, a little UFO with a claw, as you move objects to the designated platform and balance, arrange, and build to help earthlings complete jobs!

Take on lots of puzzling jobs which have multiple objectives, helped along by pictures with hints. Solve them to earn in-game medals and unlock even more jobs. Remember though to keep an eye on the timer.

In Part Time UFO you can recruit a friend and complete any job in cooperative mode as well.

Each job also has a more difficult variation that’s perfect for two players. Jobs may have more objects to move or other challenges to keep the action fresh for your UFO buddy. Two claws are better than one! Paige reviewed Part Time UFO and recommends it for couples or for parents of a slightly older child to enjoy together,

Zenge tells the story of Eon, a lonely journeyman who is stuck between worlds and time.

Zenge is a game that is intended to be a relaxing experience and it’s certainly that. There are no points, stars, tutorials, move counters, in-game shops or any other distractors. Just pure, immersive journey with Eon, told through gorgeous art and music.

The concept of Zenge is to complete tangram puzzles by sliding and moving the shapes which are attached to rails into a portrait. Which then turns in to a picture and you and the journeyman move on to the next level. I had the pleasure of reviewing Zenge.
