    The pay model is fair and flexible, the gameplay feels refreshed and is highly addictive, and it’s clear that Mallow and his companions will be part of the Nintendo family for many years to come.

    If you’re a fan of puzzle games and especially Pushmo, you’ll likely enjoy Stretchmo just as much, if not more.

    Fullblox is another brilliant puzzle game for Nintendo 3DS. Deeper mechanics, full of stages and great challenges. Only for the Expo NES levels this game it's a must have.

    Stretchmo is a great free-to-play puzzle game. Intelligent Systems does a superb job with putting together a bevy of creative puzzles to run through with a not so painful price tag attached.

    As an inexpensive downloadable title—again, the first few tutorial stages are free, and buying the four-pack of add-ons makes it ten bucks—I can’t help but say I enjoyed it, despite the repetition of what was necessary in each level.

    It's cute, colorful, and the perfect puzzle game to keep on your 3DS for dull commutes.

The puzzles are challenging and very creative, I got this game because it is free to download. For only 10.00$ you can get EVERY stage, this is a great price for a game I have played 36:00+ hours solving puzzles. Once you have beaten every level on the four main attractions, you unlock Perilous Peak, these stages will challenge you to your limits.
    When you buy any of the one attractions you will unlock the Stretchmo maker. I hear a lot of people ask why this game is free to download, two words, STREET PASS. Street passing other people will allow you to play one of their favorite stages. Over all this game is amazing and is more than worth the 10.00$, if you come across it, pick it up, you will not regret it.

    Stretchmo is free when you first download it. You get to play through a handful of tutorial puzzles that actually don't do a good job ofStretchmo is free when you first download it. You get to play through a handful of tutorial puzzles that actually don't do a good job of showing what's in store when you purchase the full game. You can buy up to four themed areas separately or at once for a discounted price. If you're a fan of Pushmo then buying the whole package is a no-brainer. Stretchmo is played almost identically to how you would expect it to, but there's one twist that makes all the difference. Instead of just pushing and pulling back and forth from an initially 2D puzzle, you can now push and pull from the sides of blocks as well. Also, puzzles can now begin as 3D models which add even more welcome complexity to the previously established formula. I must say that this is a fantastic way to reinvigorate the series. I can't wait to see what the next game has up its sleeve.

    I don't know how they managed to do it, but Stretchmo is even cuter than other games in the series. As you traverse the park, various robots that represent each area show you the ropes. They each have their own personality as they teach you the tricks of the trade and get into all sorts of trouble. As a grown man, it's odd to say but I can't believe how adorable they are. I would even buy toys of them if Nintendo sold them. As with the other games, puzzles look sharp and you can freely rotate and zoom the camera to assist you with your plan for success. That being said, jumping around corners and in tight spots can still be a frustrating experience, but you can rewind time if you mess up. The included music is composed of the lighthearted orchestral flair that you're used to while sound effects offer even more frivolity to the equation. Overall, how can anyone not fall in love with something so uniquely charming on every level?

    As you work your way through puzzles, you'll unlock a ton of content that you can use to create and share your own puzzles in Stretchmo Studio. In the three non-Mallo areas, the puzzles are broken up into sections of ten. You can advance to the next section after completing five puzzles, but if you beat all ten then you get stickers that you can decorate your own creations with. Also, simply experiencing a new mechanic will unlock it in the level editor. Therefore, after playing for a while, you'll eventually be able to create 3D puzzles and apply mechanics such as manholes, pullout switches, and enemy spawn spots. If you're artistic enough, you can even apply Nintendo-themed stickers to the side of your puzzle to create classic game scenes. When you're done, you can share it with the world by a QR code. Maybe I'll get to play one of your inventive creations soon! I'm looking forward to it.

    I haven't played the "full" game so excuse me if this is a little biased. It is a fun concept and I would love this game I think, but it isI haven't played the "full" game so excuse me if this is a little biased. It is a fun concept and I would love this game I think, but it is ruined by the fact that they call it free-to-start. SEVEN extremely easy levels that are beaten in under a minute each is not worth the 500 blocks to download. Again, fun concept, but they should have just made it a full $10 game and put this as a demo. Way to deceive people and make them think this is worth a download to find that this is simply a demonstration in disguise. Expand
