I would highly recommend A Little to the Left for those who love puzzle games that include organizing stuff, but for achievement hunters, I can’t recommend this game at this moment. Those reviews are too tedious, but the developers are thinking about redoing some of them.

Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (if you don’t use the hint system)

I have such a hard time writing this review. On one hand, I adored the game, I had such a lovely time playing it. It was wholesome, fun and with moments frustrating because some of the puzzles with multiple solutions and not being able to figure out the other solutions. The game has a great hint system, but that will only show the main solution, not the others solutions. So for people who love organizing/cleaning in games, this is a lovely one and I would highly recommend it.

For achievement hunters, it is a totally different story. With the promise of this game kinda expected a relaxing achievement list. The ones where you have to do something special at a specific level and completing all the levels with all solutions would be the type of achievements I totally would expect and was ready for. Sadly it has so many frustrating achievements as the one to use no hints during the whole campaign as well as to use the hint on every level, but the worse are the 365 dailies and the 300 consecutive dailies, especially that last one. I believe it is possible to “cheat” a little bit on this by changing your computer time, but I’m not up for those types of challenges. Especially when you can get totally stuck and start over when one day you aren’t able to solve the puzzle of that day. The developers have responded to this topic on the steam forum about how crazy the achievements are and that they will think about maybe redoing some of them, so that gives a bit of hope.

For now, if you enjoy puzzle games, especially when there is some sort of organizing involved, I would highly recommend this game as it is a lot of fun! As an achievement hunter, I would for now wait and see what the developers will decide to do with those very tedious achievements.
