    I bought this game after seeing a trailer for it on YouTube and I am very pleased with what I got. The game offers 3 different control options being touch screen, motion controls, or traditional controller and all of them work fine. The game is very easy to understand yet can offer some real challenges that never feel unfair and always manage to satisfy you when you figure it out.

The game is very easy to understand yet can offer some real challenges that never feel unfair and always manage to satisfy you when you figure it out.

    My favorite aspect of this game has to be the fact that you can solve all the puzzles in different ways, which is not a very common thing for a puzzle game. This game also looks very pretty both on your TV and on the Wii U gamepad.

    So polished, with nothing out of place and everything behaving like it should. The learning curve feels right, with the first levels teaching you what you need to know later. I liked the mix of challenges thrown in with the usual mode, and the mutliplayer Tower Tumble has proven to be a lot of fun to play with the kids. Great value on sale for something like $7 in the eShop.

    It's a nice puzzle game, even being addictive. Levels in Arcade mode are very simple in the beginning, but then some of them may take a good bunch of your time. Depending on your patience, and whether you like this kind of games, you may be able to finish all the worlds, but after that, there's nothing much to do.

    It's also a very good looking game, though the lack of anti-aliasing on
    It's a nice puzzle game, even being addictive. Levels in Arcade mode are very simple in the beginning, but then some of them may take a good bunch of your time. Depending on your patience, and whether you like this kind of games, you may be able to finish all the worlds, but after that, there's nothing much to do.

    It's also a very good looking game, though the lack of anti-aliasing on shapes can underwhelm your experience.

    Resistance mode is fun and this is the key feature for competitive players or those ones looking for a challenge. Local multiplayer can be fun for a night.

    In the end of the day, Art of Balance it's a fun, casual well made game, accessible for anyone.

    Wii U logra obtener uno de los mejores ports para disfrutar de "Art of Balance" aprovechando el uso completo de sus capacidades de control, por lo que obtienes la versión estándar con joysticks, la táctil de la 3DS y la clásica de Wii con los Wii Motes.
    El concepto es muy simple, tenemos unos bloques de madera y es nuestro deber apilarlos haciendo que no pierdan el equilibrio para pasar
    Wii U logra obtener uno de los mejores ports para disfrutar de "Art of Balance" aprovechando el uso completo de sus capacidades de control, por lo que obtienes la versión estándar con joysticks, la táctil de la 3DS y la clásica de Wii con los Wii Motes.
    El concepto es muy simple, tenemos unos bloques de madera y es nuestro deber apilarlos haciendo que no pierdan el equilibrio para pasar de misión. Ese concepto viene acompañado con una relajante música y una apariencia placida con un toque muy japonés tradicional, que nos permite sumergirnos en la experiencia.
    Como mencioné antes ésta versión es la más completa por los múltiples controles, además contamos con varios modos de juegos individuales y cooperativos que pueden ser una buena forma de introducirle a alguien los distintos modos de utilizar el Game Pad o el estilo inalámbrico de la Wii.
    Obtuve el juego canjeando monedas de My Nintendo y la sorpresa ha sido muy grata, recomiendo mucho "Art of Balance" para quienes sean fans de los juegos de Puzzles. Éste es todo un reto y se ve y se juega bien de cualquier manera.

    The total package is a game of deceptive brilliance.

    This version of Art of Balance for Wii U it’s the best of the three that were developed by Shin’en Multimedia.

    This Wii U eShop iteration is without doubt the ultimate version on offer, following the already mightily impressive WiiWare and 3DS eShop releases.
