Pushmo World offers a constant trickle of "A-ha!" moments

The 'Mo series has been one of Nintendo's best new properties in recent years, so it's great to see it take a leap to the Wii U. And even if you don't consider yourself a master of puzzles, the game does an excellent job of slowly breaking you into its increasing complexity. If you're willing to toss some money in Nintendo's direction, Pushmo World offers enough cerebral challenges to keep you busy throughout the summer — or whenever you need some time away from Mario Kart 8.

Pushmo World is an excellent mini-title for your Wii U library and is well suited for nearly any age group. The puzzles can get very challenging later on but that Eureka moment when you finally created a solution from nothing is incomparable. And for just $10, you'd be doing yourself a disservice by missing out.

Pushmo's Wii U debut maintains the franchise's exceptional standard of fun, deep puzzles, but don't be surprised if you find yourself occasionally missing the portability and 3D functionality of the first two games.

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.

Pushmo World is another stellar entry in one of Nintendo's premier downloadable franchises. While it's a bummer that the quirks of Crashmo didn't make a return, no one really loses when Pushmo World is so wonderfully crafted, with awesome puzzles and excellent new twists. Let's just hope that Crashmo World is up next on Mallo's quest.

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.

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