Excerpt: Puzzle games do one important thing - they exercise our brains. They teach us to approach problems from a different perspective. Crush 3D is the perfect example of this. This Nintendo 3DS game is part 2D, and part 3D. We shift the game to progress from place to place.
Excerpt: Have you ever been pushed into a crazy scheme by your friends only to have it backfire on you while making yourself look like a total fool? I'm sure we all have, but Danny gets into an even stickier situation when he agrees to test his friend's invention out.
Excerpt: Imagine this: you're trapped inside a strange experiment; the only tool at your disposal is the power to move great distances in an instant. With only this ability and your own wits to help you, you must outsmart a sinister computer program hell-bent on both killing you and romancing you at the same...
Conclusion: Despite its issues, Crush3D offers a slickly presented, quirky and idiosyncratic experience that delivers spatial puzzles that will definitely stretch your grey matter. Unfortunately, it can also test your patience as much as your lateral thinking, a factor that isn’t helped by an annoyingly up-beat...
Excerpt: The 3DS has received a few enhanced ports in the time it’s been out. Classic games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Starfox 64 are “remade” to run and feel better, with the addition of stereoscopic 3D thrown into the mix allowing fans to experience a better version of their remembered...
Excerpt: We want to like Crush 3D, we really do. We love the concept and how the game's supposed to work. We love the sense of humour it demonstrates in its cut-scenes. We even like the play on words in the title.
Conclusion: Just over four years ago, British developers Zoë Mode were responsible for the clever puzzle/platformer Crush on PSP. A fantastic title from a talented developer that sadly went unnoticed by the larger gaming community.
Pros: Still a great concept for a game, trophy mode is a nice addition.
Cons: Not a lot of new content compared to the PSP version.
Conclusion: Ich mochte Crush auch schon auf der PSP und auch auf dem 3DS ist der Titel einfach nur grandios umgesetzt. Die Spielidee alleine ist grandios und was die Jungs und Mädels bei Zoe Media aus diesem Prinzip herausgeholt haben, ist einfach toll – hier wird so einiges an Gehirnschmalz verbraten!
Pros: Grandiose Spielidee, Tolles Leveldesign, Steuerung geht sehr gut von der Hand, 40 verschiedene Level, Ordentliche Performance im Vergleich zu früher, Immer noch anspruchsvoll, aber immer fair
Cons: Kein Level-Editor, Keine spielerischen Änderungen/Neuheiten, Kamera gelegentlich bockig
