  • Summary: Get ready to unleash pedestrian-tossing pandemonium!

    All Grace and Savannah want is to make it in Tokyo, but what's with all the scenesters, bomb balls, flower displays, and ninjas getting in their way?! And don't even get me started on the UFO abductions, or how easy it is for a visit
    to Tokyo to end with getting sucked into outer space...

    You'll need lightning-fast reflexes and an eye for strategy to succeed in this fast-paced puzzle game, where live-action video blends seamlessly with wacky digital graphics. Throw and roll hapless bystanders into lines of people, trying to group three or more who wear the same color together so that they'll form a clique and disappear. Form cliques and eliminate the lines you're facing as fast as you can to progress through the game's many stages. With two different play modes-Story Mode and Challenge Mode-this game's got you covered whether you're looking for quick gaming sessions or longer endurance challenges.

    A game that I truly did not see coming. Fans of surreal FMV and/or match three puzzle games should check it out.

    One of the weirdest games to ever wear the Nintendo name.

    You won't find any innovation here – somewhere between Bust-A-Move and Zuma this is just another "Match-3"-variation. But the idea of throwing people around is so ridiculously wacky that you have to play it to believe it.

    Despite its problems, Tokyo Crash Mobs remains an entertaining and enjoyable romp, and there's more than enough of the classic Puzz Loop brilliance to make it a worthwhile download, especially if you're already a card-carrying fan of Mitchell Corporation's work. It's just a shame that it doesn't improve dramatically on the existing entries in the series, because this is one franchise that deserves to have a genuine renaissance.

    Tokyo Crash Mobs is probably the strangest game Nintendo has published outside of its own Wario Ware series. It's so delightfully weird, and its mechanics are a fun, interesting refinement on the Zuma-esque puzzler. It's too bad, then, that whatever fun that could have been had from this game is mitigated by its asinine touch screen controls.

    Tokyo Crash Mobs reinvents a classic like Zuma in a purely Japanese style.

    Tokyo Crash Mobs should only really be considered by 3DS owners who dig the look of the game and are Puzz Loop fanatics. Everyone else should look elsewhere - there are plenty of superior puzzlers in the eShop.
