For puzzle fans, Nintendo’s Switch is especially suited to provide hours of entertainment. With the help of its unique touchscreen and ability to be used both as a console and handheld device, there is no shortage of great puzzles games for Switch owners. Here are some of the best Nintendo Switch puzzle games available on the platform.
1. Tetris 99
Tetris 99 (or Tetris Battle Royale) is an increasingly popular free-to-play battle royale game developed by Nintendo. Players compete against 98 other players simultaneously while playing their own individual game of Tetris. It features power-ups where two or more connected lines will be cleared from a player’s board, making for intense and thrilling matches. It’s easy to learn, and offers endless hours of fun as you get better at the game.
The online battles can get pretty heated, but players are able to review their past edge matching battles online through replay mode. The in-game music and sound effects also help keep it exciting while showing off the different battle modes like Offline VS CPU or Ranked Match. Plus, with a diverse range of customisable backgrounds and themes, it’s easy to make this game your own.
Threes! is a tile-based puzzle game that was released on iOS in 2014 but has since been made available on the Switch Store for owners of the console to enjoy too. The aim is to combine numbered tiles on a grid by sliding them into groups matching their numerical value (eg: two 3’s becomes a 6). As tiles advance across each level, higher numbers are created leading up to 4096 – when this number has been achieved it’s game over!
This isn’t just
