reky from RedDeerGames and beyondthosehills is a 3D puzzle game inspired by architectural minimalism. You’ll control a small blob that must reach the exit of each level. To do this, you’ll have to use the different blocks on each stage – those with colors and those that are white – so that you can get to the exit that will lead you to the next level. Each color for each of the blocks will make them react differently once you interact with them, and this will play a key role in puzzle solving.
The game will teach you all of the basics during a short tutorial segment. You’ll use the left analog stick to move a blob through each stage as you try to complete its puzzles. The right analog stick can be used to select from the different blocks. You can use the A button to move colored blocks out of your way or press the X button to get said colored block’s color. You can then press the X button to give said color to a white block. If you make a mistake, you can press the B button to go back one move. For each level, you’ll be given a score based on the number of jumps it took your blob to complete the level, multiplied by said stage’s difficulty.
Depending on the color of a block, it will move in a specific way. Blue blocks will move up. Light green blocks will move down. Yellow blocks will move northwest. Pink blocks will move northeast. Purple blocks will move northeast. Green blocks will move southeast. Keeping this in mind is crucial for solving some of the later puzzles. You will need to combine this knowledge with where each portal can take you since some levels will have portals that can drop your blob in another segment, and you will need to plan accordingly – or press the B button to go back a step if you moved to a section before setting up all the right blocks or bringing with you the right color.
Rexy is a relaxing 3D puzzle game inspired by architectural minimalism that you can play at your own pace. There are 96 levels to complete, with a difficulty that increases at a steady pace. There’s also some replay value for this one if you want to boost your overall score by completing each level in as few moves as possible. reky is out now on Nintendo Switch with a $9.99 asking price.
