game that offers an ambient game-play experience with cerebral
challenges that fill uniquely designed, picturesque worlds. Each of
these worlds is broken into different areas in which the player must
maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance.
Crashmo launches Nov. 22. Players can embrace the laws of
gravity and challenge themselves with a whole new kind of
action-puzzle play in this exciting sequel to the critically acclaimed Pushmo.
New gravity mechanics and gadgets like floating blocks, doors and
move switches await, testing players’ skills as they push, pull and
slide each puzzle’s colorful blocks in order to climb to the top. Just
be careful where those blocks are moved—unsupported blocks will come
crashing down. Crashmo contains lots of puzzles to test your
brains, and enhanced puzzle-creation and -sharing features mean that
even when all the puzzles are cleared, the fun never has to stop.
Fluidity: Spin Cycle arrives on Dec. 27, letting players tilt,
turn and even rotate their Nintendo 3DS system 360 degrees to maneuver
a puddle of water named Eddy through a maze-like, magical world.
Change from liquid to a block of ice or a steam cloud to solve fun,
gravity-defying puzzles and defeat Goop monsters. Fluidity: Spin
Cycle features a new storybook setting to explore that spans the
ages, from a lost world full of dinosaurs to the modern world and
Three original games from LEVEL-5 and several well-known Japanese
collaborators will launch in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS
before this holiday season. The first of these games, SUDA 51’s LIBERATION
MAIDEN, is set 100 years in the future, when the president of
Japan boards her Liberator, Kamui, and fights to free her country one
region at a time. AERO PORTER by Yoot Saito and Yasumi
Matsuno’s CRIMSON SHROUD are also slated for release by the end
of the year.
Get ready to unleash pedestrian-tossing pandemonium with Grace and
Savannah in Tokyo Crash Mobs, a fast-paced action-puzzle game
coming to the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS in early 2013. Players
will need lightning-fast reflexes and an eye for strategy to survive
the three chaotic weeks that lie ahead for our heroines, as they take
on anyone and anything that gets in their way.
