Excerpt: Every Extend Extra is a lesson to all of us here at Family Friendly Gaming. Just because a developer came up with some fun games in the past does not mean everything they come up with is golden. I purchased Every Extend Extra from our fantastic friends over at Amazon.
Excerpt: Tetsuya Mizaguchi – the man who created two of the best tetris-like games of recent years, Lumines for the PSP and Meteos for the DS is at it again. Judging from his recent hits we expected yet another music filled, adrenalin pumping puzzler adventure that would blow us away, but did Tetsuya manage...
Excerpt: The PSP has seen a few notable puzzle games, the biggest of these being Lumines , which was hailed by many to be the next Tetris .

Excerpt: If you don't understand what Every Extend Extra is about from looking at the screenshots on offer then you can comfortably be forgiven. The game craftily extracts itself from categorisation. The closest you'll get is to describe it as a shoot 'em up/puzzle combo.
Extend Extra is a unique title in many regards but, those who played
Lumines or its sequel will find many similarities between the two games in
terms of presentation and design. Both games emphasize simple play
mechanics that require a great deal of skill and reflexes to complete.
Excerpt: At a single glance you can tell that this game is unlike any other game you've ever played before. It's very rare that a game as original looking as this, with equally original gameplay turns out so well, let alone exceptional.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Every Extra Extend can be frustrating at first but just like all the best music tracks, it grows on you over time and soon becomes endearing. As we have come to expect from Q Entertainment, it is visually and sonically mesmerising, constantly pushing you into the zone.
