9/10

Animal Well delights with its non-traditional approach to Metroidvanias, combining unique items with a reactive and surreal world that’s full of surprises.

A gorgeous and immensely absorbing metroidvania platformer that is both easy to get into and dense with secrets.

8/10

Animal Well is an extremely rewarding game — if you’re willing to lose yourself in it. The sort of mysteries it’s hiding go well beyond finding collectibles, giving you a rich and detailed world to unpack. If you have the patience and the curiosity, it’s absolutely worth plumbing its depths.
