Puzzle fans will have a blast with this cleverly conceived sequel. The puzzles feel much the same as those found in Pushmo, save a few important changes. The most important is that the puzzle arena is now a little bigger and players can move the camera all the way around the tower. That means players have to think about the tower in three dimensions, exploring paths that lead up not just its front but also its sides and back. It makes things a bit trickier, but you can always just skip ahead and move on to the next should you run into something you just can't crack.

Factor in the return of the studio mode -- which can be used not only to create new puzzles to share with friends but also to make simple, block-based art -- and you have a wonderful and affordable little eShop game that offers a good deal more entertainment than many full-priced boxed games in stores.
