Fallblox review

Comment on site articles.

The sequel to the best 3DS eShop game ever is here. Can it beat the original?

The trick to a good sequel, if Hollywood is to be believed, is gravity. Think of The Godfather: Part II, Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, Toy Story 2 - all of them take well known formulas and inject them full of betrayal, death, dark family secrets and evil prospectors (er, that one only applies to Toy Story 2). Fallblox, Intelligent Systems' sequel to the sublime Pullblox also opts for gravity, albeit of the 'apple on head' kind, and less of the "I am your father" variety. Although your mentor is called Papa Blox...

Due to an unexpected bill, I'm going to have to pass for a couple of weeks, but YES, I will get this. Excellent.
Game Over, Yeah!!

Do you guys get paid extra for continually reminding us that Pullblox is "the best eShop game ever" every time you mention it? :D

Downloaded it and started playing it. Great fun, and Papa Blox's vocal reaction when the birds fly off in the intro is priceless :D . Just annoyed I was missing 7 cents and had to top Up an extra 10€ which I won't use for long. Nintendo should let you top up smaller sums.

I get most of my 3DS credit for free from a points-earning website which I can guarantee is reliable and not a scam. I can PM a link to anyone interested :)

You can :) If you go on the thing you want to buy, then if you don't have enough, you can top up by the requiered amount, e.g. 7 cents :) At least you can in the UK so I assume it's the same

Definitely on my wishlist, the first game was great. Once I find some change it's an essential download.

Got it on release, rather than waiting for Pokedex 3D Pro to reduce in price in a sale that will NEVER happen.

And I have to say it is embarrassingly difficult. I had completed all puzzles on Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask literally the day before and I now I am struggling at level 24 or whatnot!

Still, it is amazing, but it is a serious puzzle platformer, even more so than Pullblox!

A bit like introducing a Noob to EV training then?

I'm probably not gonna get this. It seems a tad bit to complicated for my liking. Which is kinda upsetting. :cry:
