    I particularly enjoyed the unique Mysterious Pushmo puzzles, but the overall package is really top notch work out of Intelligent Systems and Nintendo.

    I was new to the franchise when I began playing Pushmo World, but it didn't take long to convert me into a fan. I discovered a constant trickle of "A-ha!" moments that made me feel like I was never far from progress, even when things got tough. That's exactly how I want to feel playing a puzzle game.

    With hundreds of puzzles to keep you occupied for hours, Pushmo World is a wonderful experience, if only a bit familiar.

    Pullblox World is a fresh and entertaining puzzle game, but it lacks the inventive 3D effect of the original game. Fortunately, the brand new editor and sharing options should fill the void.

    Picking up Pushmo World isn't the most exciting prospect up front. It takes far too long to really get going, and we wish there were additional challenges and incentives to retry old puzzles. That said, it really does get more interesting as you dig deeper in, and there are more than enough individual puzzles to keep you busy for quite some time.

    An enjoyable and laid back puzzle game that's easy to grasp but tricky to master. It's a little on the plain side and lacking in variety, but the addition of new puzzle types combined with the promise of user-generated content, should pull players back for more.

    This game is a total steal with many gameplay hours provided by the already very long park with increasingly difficult puzzles and all the user created content.

    Given the fact there are so many different special blocks pretty much any picture or sprite can be turned into a more or less mind-boggling puzzle.

    Yet ANOTHER must-have masterpiece on Wii U. What can I say? The gameplay premise of Pushmo World is so natural it wouldn't feel out of place next to classics such as Tetris. In fact, the Pushmo gameplay premise very well might be the best puzzle concept I've ever seen in a video game, EVER. And this game is all the better on Wii U. With hundreds of puzzles to solve, user created content, sharing and Miiverse integration, Pushmo World solidifies itself as one of the best downloadable games on Wii U.

    Very rarely would I consider a downloadable game a reason to buy a console, but Pushmo World fits the bill. This is a true must-have, and should be regarded as an equal among recent greats such as Mario Kart 8, Shovel Knight and Wii Sports Club. Pushmo World is indeed the best and by far the most addictive puzzle game I've ever played. Buy this game!

    Seriously, Do NOT trust IGN, they didn't even complete the Park. I've played 30+ hrs of Pushmo World. It's really much better than the original 3DS one, if you kinda love the 3DS Pushmo, in my opinion $10 for Pushmo World is a steal, just grab it and enjoy.

    New mechanics, better level design, much better graphics and new music including Remix of origin Super Mario Bros. Melody. Whether or not IGN thinking it's just the original 3DS one, they just didn't play the game, i mean seriously.

    I downloaded Pushmo World from the E shop on my Wii U never having played the original on the 3DS and I have to say this is a gem. If you have a Wii U and like puzzle/ quirky japanese games. I come highly recommending Pushmo.

    I will tell you the truth. I was not expecting a lot from this game but it has took me from surprise. I have done about 10 levels so far and each one gets a little bit harder. The game looks to be pretty long as well and has a lot of replay value as once you have completed all of the levels which will be tough. There is a level editor which you can mess around with.

    Go buy Pushmo and support Nintendo's new ips and don't say Nintendo do not make anything new.
