  1. With the deep and strategic gameplay, a great tutorial and a variety of modes including a two-player ad hoc wireless mode, there's no reason not to purchase UBP.

    If you're good at it but never get great, it might not impress you all that much. Once you start putting together huge Chains, however, and earning those bunker-buster Magic Blocks, the game gets nuts.

    The new rotation mechanic takes some getting used to, but Koloomn proves complex, satisfying and horribly addictive. Good stuff. [Apr 2006, p.113]
  4. The tutorials do their best to bring you up to speed on all the gameplay concepts, but you'll need to invest a fair amount of time to get the hang of it all. Played competitively there are few games as intense as this, making the lack of unique game modes more than bearable.
  5. Ultimate Block Party is easy to pick up and play, and once you do, the quick, chaotic puzzle battles will have you hooked.

    Addictive enough to grasp hours (or weeks) of your time. [Apr 2006, p.85]

    It's nothing fancy, but for puzzle freaks, this is a nice edition to the PSP library. [Jun 2006, p.118]
