It appears to just be a tetris-like game where you can change the appearance.

I enjoy these types of game and it looks like a bit of fun so I'll probably buy it - Especially if it's as cheap as Pyramids was.



sgotsch said:

If there are enough possibilities and the sharing works well, I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh and, please find a way to compare scores ingame in the specific settings. :x

I think if this is priced right I'll pick it up. I expected a block pushing puzzler when I first saw the title.

How about now?

I bought Pyramids today. It's a good start for 3DSWare, but the gameplay is amazingly simple and repetitive, and the controls are very hard to use. Not a great start :/

This game just looks like Tetris...
Oh wait it is...just Tetris with the option to choose what blocks you drop, which is a bit questionable. As long as Enjoy Gaming keep bringing games like this to the eShop I will probably buy them as there isnt anything else apart from slow releasing GB games and...Golf. However they need to create an original title with less repitition in the gameplay to actually get a secured title that will be well remembered.

I really want to support this game, I REALLY do. However, aside from the awesome concept of sharing custom puzzles the game looks very bland imo (3D will help perhaps?). Also if other people find the game bland, I wouldn't want to share games no one would want to play.

"...second Nintendo 3DS™ game following the successful title Pyramids..."

So Pyramids was actually successful? Well, that's nice to know. Hopefully it'll motivate some more devs to get busy.

It's definitely a good idea. I just wish you could take your creations online. The ability to rate the creations of others and being able to choose which games to download through these rankings could have made this one an incredibly amazing creative game. Even more so if there were weekly competitions and the dev's picking their favourite creations every month or so. I mean i could see me pay at least 15 € if it were included.
The way it is though i don't think i'll buy it.
