At the end of the day, Deru may be too challenging for small kids and too unstimulating for adults. To its credit, it has an absolutely beautiful delivery and the abstract puzzles are a nice and unexpected idea. Though the price tag on the game is pretty modest, the gameplay is very short — less than four hours from start to finish — and may not be worth the purchase for players seeking an exhilarating experience.
DERU: The Art of Cooperation is a simple but beautiful puzzler that really shines when two players are involved. It’s an easy recommendation if you’re after a head scratcher and perfect for couples looking for a way to spend a couple of afternoons. Playing alone? It’s functional but far from the true way to experience the game.
Ink Kit have put together a fantastically simple puzzle game that is easy to understand and pick up and play either on your own or with a second player. It might suck you in and have you playing for quite some time, but equally, some players who enjoy the puzzle genre might find it as a good game to play in short bursts on a whim, which is especially suited to the portability factor of the Switch.
