Tried out another puzzler, minimalistic thing called Hook from 2015. (pics related, unsolved states no spoilers)
Gave it a shot because of how aesthetically pleasing it looked from screenshots, didn´t like it that much sadly. You are to pull all pins, but they can intersect or be blocked by hooked pins. Got ~30 puzzles deep and it never felt like you were really figuring anything out, just doing a bunch of busywork to manipulate it into endstate. Mental manual labour.>>1237
I´d say it has to do with it being both more strict and freeform at the same time. In Baba you always have some pointers as to what you should/could do, from the available pieces, whereas Snakebird there´s a very narrow possible space of how you could wiggle through but all you have to go by is logical hunches and trial & error.
I kinda miss a solution replay feature actually, because in the last two puzzles I spent a lil while trying to actively figure out the solution, then solved them when I let my mind drift without paying attention so I had no idea what I actually did.
