Him & Her is a puzzle platformer available for Nintendo Switch. The main goal of the game is to try and get to your significant other using platforming. The game has very simplistic graphics with a sort of hand drawn look to them.
Him & Her has a pretty minimal tutorial in the first couple levels, and then sorta just leaves you to figure things out for yourself. I didn’t really mind this, especially since as far as I can tell, you get unlimited lives. At least on easy anyways. Personally I am not the greatest at platforming, so having an easy option was definitely a relief to me.
Some of the things I liked about the game were just how minimalistic it is, it sort of felt like playing in a child’s drawings. The controls are also quite simple and fairly easy. I struggled a bit with jumping and timing, but I’m not sure if that was just me being bad or the game. I also really enjoyed walking on walls to solve the puzzles. The story, while simply told, is also fairly neat. The game’s description says it has a deep thought provoking experience, and I’m not so sure I’d go that far, but it was still pretty good. Considering the price, I think it was a perfectly fine game.
The problems I had with this game are fairly minimal overall. It’s a bit short, and even though I thought the graphics were cute, I think some people will definitely hate it. It honestly reminds me of something I would’ve put on my myspace in like 2007. To me, that’s not a knock, but I think to some it’ll be a major turn off.
For a buck, this game is perfectly passable. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s a fun little time passer. For these reasons, my overall rating is a 6/10.
