    A really solid puzzle game that looks and performs great on 3DS. It's extremely relaxing to play, generally levels can be very easy to solve but it seems every world has 1 or 2 stinkers that will take many retries to get right, but there's literally nothing more satisfying than when a level all comes together. lots of stuff to do as well and for a very fair price.

It's a pretty old game now (practically been out since the 3DS was launched) but even now it's a good title to take a look at and try out, and thanks to the demo it's easy to see if it's your cup of tea.

    Overall a very competent and relaxing puzzle game that's worth a look if you like that sort of thing. As far as i'm concerned, this is the 3DS equivalent to legendary PC Puzzle games like Bookworm, Bejewled, Zuma and Chuzzle. And if you know how amazing those games are that should give you some pretty decent expectations for how this is.

    The Saddest part about all this tho? It doesn't have a Miiverse.

    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.

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