  • Summary: Also known as "Fallblox" in the UK/EU. Players can embrace the laws of gravity and challenge themselves with a whole new kind of action-puzzle play in this exciting sequel to the critically acclaimed Pushmo. New gravity mechanics and gadgets like floating blocks, doors and move switches await, testing players' skills as they push, pull and slide each puzzle's colorful blocks in order to climb to the top. Just be careful where those blocks are moved-unsupported blocks will come crashing down. Crashmo contains lots of puzzles to test your brains, and enhanced puzzle-creation and -sharing features mean that even when all the puzzles are cleared, the fun never has to stop. Collapse

    I was surprised there would be a sequel to Pullblox, given the versatility of the game, but this one manages to be just as fun and different enough to be equally worthy of a purchase.

    Crashmo is a brilliant puzzle game, full of unique mechanics and a slew of puzzles that will have you coming back for more, as long as you can deal with the demanding difficulty from the start.

    If Pullblox was the game that pulled you into the series, Fallblox is the game to make you fall in love with it. Awe-inspiring.

    It manages to further refine a lot of what was already made with its predecessor, and any fan of the genre should give it a try. However, it cannot be stressed enough that one should play Pullblox as well.

    Fallblox is an amazing puzzle game that can be bought for a few Euros in the eShop. But beware: it's not a game for the inexperienced puzzles. The challenges can often get extremely hard, which makes it all the more satisfying when you solve them.

    Even though it’s unassumingly tucked away in the 3DS‘ eShop, Fallblox is frankly a great little game.

    For tenacious players and those inclined towards the genre, Fallblox could prove an irresistible draw, with clearing its parade of cryptic conundrums a delicious prospect. For others, the game's difficulty, and its visual and thematic linearity, will prove tiresome, their enthusiasm for its self-evident ingenuity petering out before each of its challenges has fallen.

    This game is one tricky puzzle, but if you never give up, you will always find the goal.This game is like the next part of Pushmo, which now there's another park called Crashmo. Instead of saving these poor kids, you are going to get all 100 birds. That means 100 puzzles for the story. There's also another 100 puzzles, but they are less harder than the story itself. Best of all, you can create your OWN puzzles just like Pushmo. But this time, instead of making only about 90 custom puzzles, you get 100 custom puzzles to create! And if you forgot, the puzzles will be more harder with new gadgets! This game is worth it, and if you LOVE making puzzles AND playing puzzles, then you should try this game. Expand

    A lot harder than pushmo/pullblox but another great game. I found it a little harder to think in 3D in some of the later levels but if you stick at it you solve the puzzle every time. Expand

    Pullblox was one of the best games, if not THE best, on eshop. Fallblox doesn't match its predecessor's quality, but is still an addictive (and hard) sequel. The physics are completely different from Pullblox- this time blocks fall instead of stay up, which requires a whole new method of thinking. The aim is still the same- get to the goal- but that is now trickier to do than ever.
    This genius puzzing sequel will bend your mind while you desperately try to work out the solution. But try long enough, and it will come. Levels are very tough, but clearing a level that took an hour to do is so satisfying.
    Of course, Fallblox is damn addictive as well as tough and the addition of new gadgets along the way help to freshen the experience further yet. Each of these gadgets adds some completely new concept, which results in an even trickier and more confusing fallblox.
    There's one downside though- there are remarkably fewer levels in Fallblox than there were in Pulblox, AND Fallblox is more expensve. The shorter game may be a result of fewer murals- Pulblox had over 70 of these, but Fallblox has only ten. Murals are very interesting because they are like normal levels, except that they look like pictures. It's a neat idea, so it's a shame there aren't many of them in Fallblox.
    As well as the main game, the level creator idea from Pullblox is back. This greatly increases the lasting appeal of the game, and pushes your thinking to the limit. But, just like Pullblox, it's lacking in a good way to share your levels online- a scheme like in mario vs donkey kong would've been better than qr codes.
