Summary: Released in the early days of the DS, the original Meteos - developed by Kirby & Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai - was an inspired & utterly brilliant puzzle game. This licensed sequel flips the gameplay to a portrait display - requring the DS to be held in story book fashion a la Brain Training (Age), Hotel Dusk et al. - and loses not a skerrit of the magic.
Summary: I am great at puzzle games but not this one. I ended up trading it in because it was too hard. If you love a huge challenge then this is for you....have fun with it and let me know how you did.
Summary: THIS GAME IS A BIT FUN BUT IT CAN GET A BIT HARD AND I DONT THINK ITS SO MUCH FOR YOUNG CHILDREN. ONCE IN AWHILE THE GAME GETS HARDER, YOU START TO PRESS SO HARD NOT TO LOSE YOUR FINGERS START TO HURT. BUT IT IS FUN.
Summary: If you don't have Meteos for DS, then this Disney version is a must-have for puzzle fans. I bought it for my kids and they love it, althought it's still a bit too deep for their abilities yet. One of the most original puzzle games anywhere, and it adds new features over the first Meteos.
Summary: I really like the block game in Mario Party DS but there is no way to save your "work". I thought that this game would be similar but it's not that easy to understand and the constant flashing gave me a headache.
Summary: I was thinking, from reading the instruction booklet first, that this game might be like "Dr Mario" (a game my family LOVES). Well...let's just say that I beat the whole thing by moving my stylus up and down the touch screen madly. And I did it in an hour. My son said, "this is the dumbest game I have ever played!" Maybe I'm too stupid to get the strategy of it all. Or too impatient. I don't know. Don't waste your money...rent it first if you really want to try it.
Fun game with great Disney theming, but has some hampering usability flaws

Summary: I like this kind of puzzle game. I'm a fan of Tetris, Zuma, and a host of others. I'm also a fan of Disney, and I wanted a Nintendo DS game that was Disney-themed to play while in line at Disney theme parks for a recent trip. Enter Meteos: Disney Magic. I'd never played Meteos before.
Summary: Now that I've played this game awhile, I love it. I think it's creative and enjoy the Disney theme. It is a challenging bugger when you first start, but that's half the fun! I haven't played the original Meteos game so I can't draw a comparison. But this has become one of my favorite games to play.
