    Overall, Art of Balance Touch! is a remarkable title, and one that would be hard not to recommend to any 3DS owner. It a polished experience, but also a great title to just pick up and play, and the added Endurance mode does a great job of extending the game's life well after all the worlds have been completed.

    The 3DS eShop scores another whopper, as Art of Balance Touch! is essential puzzle gaming.

    Art of Balance Touch! is a wonderful "enhanced" version of a beautiful WiiWare game; although the multiplayer has been left off the package, the simple and addicting concept, the new levels and features, the perfect physics and controls all sum up for another little big eShop jewel.

    Another gem. [Sept 2012, p.107]
  5. This is a game that everyone - young and old - can enjoy, even if it lacks the extra pizzazz of Pullblox. [Aug 2012, p.102]

    The shift from WiiWare to 3DS, meanwhile, may not see Art Of Balance really benefiting very much from either the handheld's touchscreen or the developer's range of depth tricks, but it does add a generous suite of new levels - and it does raise the chances of a larger audience finally discovering this playful, wonderfully-calibrated puzzler.

    Adding another string to the 3DS' bow of worthwhile downloadable experiences, Art of Balance Touch! channels its forbearer and improves on it in every way, thanks to the nature of portable and new content.

    Even for WiiWare veterans, Art of Balance: Touch! is worth the double-dip for the extra puzzles, blocks and endurance mode, plus the ability to play on the go. Deceptively simple and gloriously satisfying, it's another strong addition to the eShop's puzzle line up.

    Solid enough to keep you playing for longer than you ought to, but the game looks and feels considerably cheaper than the price would suggest. [Aug 2012, p.103]

    Addictive gameplay with slightly repetitive music, great for moments when you want a little mental break from rpgs and action games and you just want a little puzzle before bed or on the loo. Full Review »
