A Monster’s Expedition review

I think that I owe myself an apology. I have always thought that I was no good at these sorts of spatially-based push-em-up puzzles. But A Monster’s Expedition, which is entirely made up of them, has challenged that assumption purely through the power of great teaching.

A Monster’s Expedition sets off on its chill puzzle romp today

A Monster’s Expedition is a tree-pushing puzzler from the creators of Cosmic Express

I often wish I had the mind for puzzle games. Alan "Draknek" Hazelden's catalogue of deceptively hard brainteasers look bleedin' lovely, but I simply can't be screaming at my monitor with strangers in the office. After solving lunar train dilemmas with Cosmic Express and teaching us that A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build, Draknek And Friends are returning with A Monster's Expedition - pushing…
