ESRB RatingE

Why would I review a game so painfully obviously for little girl? That’s because I “review the unreviewed” and Mermaid Story will go unreviewed. It is therefore right up my alley. And truth be told, I enjoyed the jigsaw puzzles of cute sea animals.

Aww, look at the cute octopus :3

The game is a bog standard jigsaw game with 4 puzzle sizes. 3×3, 4×4, 5×5, and 7×7. Young kids will gravitate toward the smaller, older kids towards the larger puzzles.

Mermaid Story Switch Review

There are two issues holding Mermaid Story back. First, you cannot view the image inside the puzzle itself, which gets frustrating on the larger sizes of puzzles you’ve not done before. Second, the game will snap any placed piece into place, making you assume it is correct, when it isn’t. Not the biggest issue, but when combined with no image preview, can be a problem with the largest size.

Mermaid Story Switch Review
There’s technically sixty puzzles, with four sizes each.

There are quite a few puzzles for your ten dollars. Sixty in total, with the option to buy more. So you cannot miss with this, despite the nagging issues.

Overall: Mermaid Story is a game for kids even adults might find appealing.

Verdict: Recommended
