Are you looking for a new puzzle/board game for the Switch? Dorfromantik is a very strategic game and might be what you’re looking for! Here is our review of Dorfromantik for the Nintendo Switch.


Dorfromantik is a puzzle/strategy/board game where you lay down tiles and try to match them with similar tiles. Each of the tiles have either forest, river, houses, or other pieces of land. Dorfromantik is all about creating different lands. There are six modes included in the game: classic, creative, quick, hard, monthly, and custom mode.

Classic is where you play the traditional Dorfromantik mode: matching tiles to get points, creative gives you unlimited tiles and lets you do whatever you want, quick gives quick games, hard is challenging, monthly is a monthly challenge that changes its rules every month, and custom lets you create your own rules. There is also a tutorial that teaches you how to play the game. It does a very good job of it too.

The game is pretty easy to learn overall and a lot of fun. It’s a very addictive, pick up and play type of game. The menus and the general look of the game are easy to understand and pretty basic in design. The graphics for Dorfromantik are alright. This isn’t the best looking game on the Nintendo Switch but it doesn’t need to be. It does control well, though you’ll want to stick with analog controls.

Dorfromantik does have some touch controls but you can’t play the whole game with just touch. You need to use some analog controls along touch. Its recommended that you just use the analog controls for this game though. It is much easier and keeps the experience enjoyable.


If you like puzzle/board games with a lot of strategy, then you should check out Dorfromantik. It is a nice, very cozy puzzle game and a great addition to the Nintendo Switch’s library.

Dorfromantik gets a 8.0 out of 10.
