The environments, music, and visual storytelling of Teslagrad are absolutely beautiful. Most of the puzzles are also very well integrated into the flow of the game, rarely feeling contrived. The only issue I encountered was that, unfortunately, some of them do.
The majority of the puzzles are quite straightforward -- neither dull nor hair-pull-outingly difficult -- but occasionally the player will encounter a sudden spike in complexity and/or precision requirement, which will swiftly diminish again until the next spike. Had the difficulty gradually increased over the course of the game, it would have felt much more comfortable; as is, these much harder puzzles stand out awkwardly from the rest and do quite a number on the player's immersion.
Frustrating thought that may be, I can do naught but recommend Teslagrad. It is not flawless, but its shortfalls are mere cracks in an otherwise shining veneer.
