This game is pretty deep with its simple mechanics. There’re a ton of levels to play, and a great variety of modes that offer both single and multiplayer fun.

More a refinement of the formula than a fresh take, Art of Balance graces a new platform and offers the same addictive puzzle action it always has. The host hardware greatly benefits both the quickplay nature of the game and its multiplayer features, making for a solid choice to new fans of the genre.

Art of Balance’s Wii U premiere is a fine candidate for a fun, compelling and absorbing puzzle game. Its levels are wide and varied and its multiplayer modes will gather friends for long hours. A very welcome entry into the puzzle sector of the Wii U catalogue.
