Just picked this up today after seeing all the positive reviews on Metacritic.  Pushmo takes a very simple concept (push + pull blocks to solve puzzles) and turns it into a very fun and addictive game. Along with basic platforming and pushing and pulling skills you also have the ability to reset the whole puzzle or rewind time if you screw but don’t need to start over.  The simple mechanics hide really complex solutions once you get past the tutorial levels.  I’m now to level 2 puzzles and it’s taking multiple tries to find a solution.

It's probably difficult to understand what type of game it is from just my impressions.  Check out the trailer.

Worth a look at $7.

Anyone else pick it up?

We've been talking about it in the What Are You Buying threads.  Really great game with a nice difficulty curve (at least so far) and clean, fun visuals.  The 3D works nicely on it, too.

One of the best reasons to own the system. Stellar puzzle game. There have been a couple of levels where I went crazy trying to find the solution. When I eventually did, it was simpler than I thought. Don't be put off by the platforming aspects. I hate that kind of stuff but it doesn't get in the way here.

Yeah, I picked it up too. A ton of fun, surprisingly enough.

Excellent news. I should pick Pushmo up again. I haven't touched my 3DS in months.
