Mom Hid My Game! (Switch) - Ramblin' Review
Mom Hid My Game! Is a simple puzzle game with a unique art style. I find myself saying that a lot about indie games, but this has to be the first game that I've seen that has mimicked child's book and airplane safety manual style so very well to great effect.
The premise is simple, your mother has hidden your portable game console somewhere in the house, and you must not only find it, but also figure out which tools lying around the house you need to utilize to get to it. In addition, you must not find your mom while in search, or else you'll be busted and have to perform that day's puzzle over.
The puzzles are fun, and clever, but very simple. It usually doesn't take much thought beyond a basic assessment of how to use the objects available in your environment to get to your game console, but it's a fun trip everyday regardless. I have a feeling that was because this $4.99 budget title was designed with children in mind as it's primary audience. While I did enjoy my time with this game, I quickly noticed that two of my girls were immediately drawn to the game's bright icon and sensational title. They have both logged more hours in this game then I have, and their general assessment bounced back and forth between this game being "silly" and "fun."
There isn't really much more to say about the game other than that it's worth a look, especially if you have young kids that you share your console with, or that have their own.
