Creature in the Well is a strange invention but one that ends up being much more than just a curious mixup of genres. It’s a mysterious journey through a weirdly beautiful mechanical world, the pinball-esque hook constantly driving you forward as you explore deeper. It’s an enjoyable venture sprinkled with moments of frustration, confusion, and repetition but that doesn’t stop it being any less engaging and a true one of a kind experience for Switch.
Creature in the Well might have some little issues here and there, but all in all, it’s really good. I was surprised by it and definitely not expecting for it to be as entertaining as it ended up being. It’s a short but reasonably challenging title that doesn’t outstay its welcome. It provides you with a handful of challenging moments, some breathtaking imagery, a neat gameplay loop, and then it’s over.
It’s been too long since I’ve been both compelled and aggravated at once by an experience. All I know that is once all of the bumpers are clear in a room, and the large round bumper emerges, every energy orb in its proximity revolves around it, bumping into it at a high range as the numbers fly out and your energy counter increases. It’s a satisfying feel, a satisfying sound, and a satisfying aesthetic.
