Top Critic Average
Pushmo seamlessly combines platform and puzzle gameplay in a charming and colourful world.
My experience with Pushmo World was one of pleasant surprise. I've seen previous Pushmo games from afar, but never bothered to give them the time of day. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be that it felt too short. I blew through all of the premade puzzles in little time, but this did give me more time to work on my own creations, as well as play the Pushmos of others.
Pushmo World might not please all players, but for newcomers it's as arresting as its 3DS debut, and for returning players, there's just enough that's new to warrant giving it a look. With great puzzles, a fun cast and story, and excellent puzzle building tools for aspiring designers, Pushmo World deserves a spot in your download cue.
With a gameplay that is as easy to learn as it is addictive and an immense variety of puzzles, made even bigger by the puzzle editor, Pullblox World has all the conditions to become a very welcome member of any Wii U family.

For puzzle lovers, you can't do much better than Pushmo World. It's a great deal with tons of challenging puzzles, lots of variety packed into a simple premise, and tons of play value via the World Fair. The best puzzle games are easy to learn but difficult to master, constantly challenge the player to think in new ways, and ensure that players can't be permanently stumped on a single puzzle. Pushmo World does all that and more with style and charm. Go pick it up on the Wii U and get ready for block-pulling bliss.
An engaging, interesting puzzler that's both charming and addictive, but doesn't reinvent the wheel of the 3DS' originals.
Pushmo World offers the same great gameplay as its predecessor, along with better sharing options for custom levels, but veterans may not feel like there's enough to it in order to justify a repeat purchase.
Little has changed from the series' winning 3DS entries, but that ought to suit franchise fans just fine.
Wii U owners unfamiliar with the 3DS entries are in for a treat, but fans of the franchise won't find much new
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. Add in the ability to download pushmo or craft your own, and it's a game that you can come back to again and again.
