Resident Evil 4 has proven itself as one of the most famous survival horror games. While you could give him credit for his awards mysterious merchant, Ashley’s Banshee screechesor Leon’s carefree attitudemaybe the bottom line RE4 Experience is methodical tetris– Customize your collected weapons and gear to fit your trust briefcase‘s bounded, grid-based constraints. If you appreciate that too RE4 Inventory Shuffle, finally someone made a jigsaw puzzle game for you.

Save space – organizational puzzle, developed by Fractal Projects, is a puzzle game in which you try to fit health items, weapons and occasionally an egg into 40 space-limited puzzle grids with different layouts.

If you’ve been fumbling with items while playing RE4, despite its many re-releases, security roomThe gameplay of is pretty much the same, but with the added focus on increasingly intricate grid designs in which you must rotate and snap your items.

save room The minimalist puzzle game gets complicated around the 20th level when it squirts more advanced RE4 Briefcase mechanics like combining herbs and gunpowder to craft health items and ammo (which take up less space), as well as throwing food at you to keep it organized. This is where prior knowledge of what gunpowder combo makes what ammo, how much ammo each weapon carries (so you can slot it into the gun and thus save crucial grid space), as well as the game’s health mechanics come into play.

For example, you can’t use healing items when you’re at full health, so spoiled food becomes a required delicacy to lower your health, so you can then consume the right combination of health items in the ideal order to recover both your health and scavenge items from your queue. Certain ammo can also reload multiple weapons, such as killer7 (here renamed “Killer6”) to the Broken Butterfly (renamed “Fixed Butterfly”). This led to a series of trial and error runs that resulted in me digging half-forgotten RE4 Knowledge of ammo capacities to decide which weapons need to be reloaded first.

During Save space – organizational puzzle could have just rolled out its inspired concept, it takes it a step further with a soothing music loop calls to mind CONCERNING‘s wonderful safe rooms and chunky sound effects that make moving items satisfying. This is what Marie Kondo-ing did RE4-style items a surprisingly relaxing experience and well worth the price of under two dollars. My only wish is for Fractal Projects to make more levels so I can stretch those special mind muscles further before anyone remasters RE4 yet again.
