Meteos Disney Magic

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Disney DVD movies are a favorite in our home just behind the Veggie Tales DVD's. So when a fun puzzle game came along with a Disney theme I put in my request to review it. Meteos was well received by Family Friendly Gaming, and for good reason. It was (editor: and still is) an innovative, exciting, and fun puzzle game. The unique features of the Nintendo DS were utilized quite well.

Meteos: Disney Magic

The Gamers Temple
7 August 2007
  • Excerpt: If you’ve never played Meteos before, then you’ve been missing out on a fun and fast-paced puzzle game for your DS. In Meteos, colored blocks fall from the top of the screen and begin to pile up on the bottom. Using the stylus you must move the blocks up and down the columns to match three or more of the same color. When you make a match, the blocks turn into booster rockets that push the blocks above them up the screen.

Meteos: Disney Magic

  • Excerpt: I remember reviewing Meteos in June 2005. Back then I adamantly stated that I had limited puzzle game skills. Since that time not a whole lot has changed. Sure my wife and I welcomed our second child into this world, but my puzzle gaming skills did not get any better. Disney Interactive Studios recently sent me a copy of their latest puzzle game, Meteos: Disney Magic.

Meteos: Disney Magic

The Armchair Empire
26 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Christmas, and Lilo & Stitch. The challenges change but the main gameplay conceit – of lining up like tiles to send them skyward to “clear” them from the stage – doesn’t change. There are time limits, opponents to ‘bury” and specific tiles to clear out, but the rapid gameplay still prevails. With all these stages set in recognizable Disney films it’s a shame that more wasn’t done to really make use of the license. The music is a big, big letdown.

Meteos: Disney Magic Review

AtomicGamer
16 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Normally, the goal in falling-block style puzzle games is to build up a line of blocks or a grouping of similar blocks. Take the classic, Tetris – you want a complete line of blocks with no holes and then poof, they disappear. Well, in 2005, the trend was bucked with Meteos. While blocks still fell from the sky and the game used a Bejeweled-style formula of moving around blocks in a pile to match lines of three or more Meteos, the kicker came in with how you eliminated...

  • Summary: The best puzzle game on DS is back with new moves and tons of Disney characters, but is it better than the original?
  • Pros: Excellent multiplayer features, Horizontal movement works, Rocket-blasting gameplay
  • Cons: Missions go from inane to impossible, Non-Disney Meteos is still better, Poor use of the license, Really, no online play? In 2007?

Meteos: Disney Magic review (DS)

HonestGamers
1 March 2007
  • Excerpt: There are familiar films like “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “The Little Mermaid,” but “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast” and many others don’t make an appearance at all. At least those characters who do show up are represented well. You get neat little pseudo-animations, like Mulan riding a surfboard with Stitch or the fairy godmother getting ready to cast a spell.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
19 August 2007
  • Excerpt: The first Meteos was released shortly after the launch of the DS and it was generally well-received. A great little puzzler, it made excellent use of the touchscreen and gained quite a fanbase. Now a sequel (of sorts) has turned up, and this time it's been given a Disney-based makeover. But have the numerous changes affected the game negatively, or has it still retained the addictive nature of the original?
