Paper Trail is a beautiful puzzler that’ll turn your brain to pulp

Charming yet challenging, Paper Trail is a beautifully designed game that will have you perplexed by its page-folding puzzles. A generous hint system ensures players won't get so stuck that they get frustrated, while collecting all the origami is a task that will likely turn even the most ardent puzzle fan's brain to pulp.

  • Such a clever central mechanic
  • Hint system is such a welcome addition to avoid frustration
  • Beautifully designed with a charming story
  • Origami challenges ensure replay value
  • Feels a tad unwieldy when played with a controller
  • Might be a bit too difficult for some
