What we have here is a great puzzler for the 3DS. Don't let the simplistic graphics and basic controls distract you from the fun gameplay you'll experience in Shift DX. Aside from a few weird spikes, the difficulty is forgiving for new players but also challenging at points for puzzle veterans. The price tag is also just right for the amount of content you get; playing these two games free on iOS means putting up with ads every time you die.Shift DX takes a simple concept and creates plenty of fun levels out of it. Anyone who enjoys this genre or has a small interest in it should definitely pick this one up.

Shift DX is a no-nonsense platformer with simplistic graphics, single-screen puzzles, and straightforward progression. The focus on shifting shows the depth of that concept, as the levels rarely feel stagnant and regularly add new twists as you go deeper. This is a fun platformer that’s easy to get lost in.

Shift DX is a well-thought two-dimensional puzzle game that will have players scratching their heads around 180º rotations, gravity inversions and the best way to reach the exit door while avoiding death by spikes. This is a game that could benefit enormously from a multiplayer mode and a proper online component, as it feels a bit empty outside its fun and challenging main mode.

Shift DX is as basic as puzzle platformers can get, with the simple premise clearly meant for casual players who spend a short amount of time clearing levels while they’re out and about. It can get challenging at times, and the level editor does offer a world of opportunities via QR Code sharing, but for the most part once you get the hang of things and clear the main levels, there’s really no other reason to go back to this game outside of improving your records through the Challenge mode.
