  • Summary: [DSiWare; also known as "Art Style: BASE 10"] The Art Style series brings you unique, simple-to-play games with striking visuals and immersive sound. Art Style: CODE is a fast-paced puzzle game that will test your quick arithmetic skills. Line up the moving digits with the stylus so that they add up to 10 in a horizontal or vertical line to clear them from the screen. Three single-player modes are included: Target (clear a set number of digits), Puzzle (clear the screen in as few moves as possible) and Endless (keep clearing digits for a high score). You can also use DS Download Play to challenge a friend in VS Mode. All they need is another Nintendo DSi, or even a Nintendo DS/DS Lite system. [Nintendo] Expand

    Sitting down and reading about a puzzle game based around arithmetic may put some people off, but after giving this even just a short try will convert people instantly, forcing them to flex their brains more than they could imagine and proving to be much more fun that Brain Training.

    My first impressions were not good, but after sitting down with the puzzler for an extensive gameplay session the game hooked me.
  3. Its strong focus on arithmetic (but very simple), together with the need to think quickly about spacial location, make Art Style: CODE an interesting proposal which can frighten players for its sobriety and learning curve.
  4. Graphically Art Style: CODE is so simple that you will easily find a unique charm here. Similarly, all its mechanics works just fine, mixing typical elements of mind games with the speed and fluency of the most charismatic puzzle games.
  5. A neat number elimination puzzler, Art Style: CODE is a great example of how small and cheap downloadable games can expand your mind and fill your time.
  6. A great little gem for all those who love maths puzzles.
  7. The game is beautifully minimal and has the kind of difficulty curve that makes the best of such games so compelling.
