Wow was what I said the first time I saw the trailer for Summertime Madness. This is a puzzle game that is sure to make your head spin and really test your problem-solving skills as you try to save our trouble protagonist. With a very interesting setting, a truly gorgeous art style, and a premise that will well and truly get right under your skin, this is possibly one of the best puzzle games of 2021!

Making A Deal With The Devil

These days I feel that puzzle games are well and truly bringing it with their story and Summertime Madness is no different. The game has us playing as a troubled artist who lives in Prague in 1945, there is war and death all around him and he escapes this by painting these beautiful pictures in his house.

The pictures he is painting and the war outside are quite the contrast. One night a strange figure appears in his room and gives him a choice. He will allow the artist to enter his paintings and embrace their beauty, but if he does not make it out his soul will be lost forever.


Before I get to the gameplay of Summertime Madness, I have to talk about the visuals. This game is gorgeous. I think the fact we are in “worlds” that were created by an artist really forced the designers to be creative and clever with the environment in the game. I would say that the game is like a midway point between two other puzzle games in The Witness and the more recently released Maquette.

There is some fantastic imagery here that really makes you thin and I love the way that some areas are nice and bright and make you forget about the war in the real world. Only for other parts of the game to be dark and moody and remind you that your soul is at stake here.

The Evolution Of The Island

The setting of the game at first glance seems like one of your island paradises that you created. However, Summertime Madness is going to throw a lot of curveballs your way. As you progress through the game you will have to solve some very cunning puzzles. Flipping a switch, moving an object, and truly thinking outside of the box. Each puzzle you solve, can cause something new to happen and a new area to appear which lets you explore further and try to get out!

There is a pretty interesting hint system at play here which is there if you get really stuck. The thing is, to stop you from abusing it, they take away your time if you use it. So, while it is there, it is best only used in emergencies.


As far as puzzle games go I have to say that Summertime Madness is one of the best to be released in 2021. The whole premise of the game along with the amazing visuals make it well and truly stand out from all of the other puzzle games released this year. The puzzle aspect of the game is a lot of fun too, with puzzles that can well and truly challenge you, but not to the point of frustration.


  • I think the story and premise of the game is great
  • The visuals are some of the best in a puzzle game
  • I love how the puzzles are challenging, but fair
  • It has a very interesting hint system


  • It is one of those stories that you do not want to end
  • The frame rate may stutter a little bit here and there
