That reminds me of some of the malus puzzles (they're meant as bonus puzzles, but they manage to be tedious if one has already done the extrapolation from previous ones) in Professor Layton games.

I use “malus” as the opposite of (en)“bonus” (by extension from the Latin) and especially in the sense of “something that was meant to be a bonus but is not actually good”. In this case they were extra puzzles that came at the end of one of the stories which took a lot of tedious grinding-through-the-steps to deal with compared to the amount of actual “higher” puzzle-solving effort that they would require if one had “properly” solved the smaller puzzles with the same concept earlier in the story.
