    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.

    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.

    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]

    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 solveA 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.
