  • Summary: (Also known at "Pullblox" in the UK/EU) Pushmo is a puzzle-action game in which you pull and push blocks to create a place to stand so you can jump up and down on your way to a goal. At first glance, some places may look out of reach, but if you use your head, you just may see a way to the goal...

    Pullblox is one of the finest titles currently available for the 3DS and even in a world where iPhone games can cost under a pound there's no questioning the value for money that Pullblox provides; it's really is a massive game with near-endless customisability.

    It's one of the 3DS's most outstanding offerings to date -- not because it pushes the hardware in any way, but because it embodies the polish and craftsmanship that elevates the best Nintendo games from "good" to "great."

    Pushmo is an ingenious puzzler that will consume the free time of anyone who gives it a whirl. I found myself putting in hours at a time because of its addictive nature. If you own a 3DS, do yourself a favor and go download Pushmo.

    An outstanding puzle game, that starts slowly but evolves quickly, becoming very addictive. A great start for Intelligent System on the 3DS and at a great price.

    In an industry where originality is a virtue increasingly rare, games like Pushmo should not be missed.

    An inspired and genuinely original puzzle game that offers plenty of value for money and one of the best reason so far to get your 3DS online.

    Absolutely fantastic. It reminds me of the best Zelda puzzles, mixed with Mario, mixed with Tetris. Actually, there is nothing else quiteAbsolutely fantastic. It reminds me of the best Zelda puzzles, mixed with Mario, mixed with Tetris. Actually, there is nothing else quite like it, which is why it is so good. It's hard to explain how great this game is until you're working on your 100th level. A must own, 10/10. Expand

The basic premise and controls mean that this is a puzzle game that anyone can play, with the game introducing the basic game-play concepts through a number of very easy early levels. The trickiness increases as levels progress in just the right amounts to keep the game engaging, and later levels introduce additional elements to increase the trickiness further. There's obviously a finite number of puzzles, but the ability to create and play your own puzzles and play puzzles created by others will keep the game going well after you've completed it. It's a well made, well presented game and, as puzzle games go, it's right up there. Expand
