Pushmo for Nintendo® 3DS Fun, Frolic and Puzzle

Become a rescuer and help the trapped kids by making your way through the puzzling architecture

Pushmo is a fun and puzzle game for the Nintendo 3DS portable gaming consoles, which has been developed by Intelligent Systems. You would have to push and pull the blocks until you complete the assigned mission. And it is not as easy as it sounds!

The game is set in an animated Pushmo Park, built by a fictitious Papa Blox. He also placed some climbing walls called Pushmo in the park. As Papa Blox, your goal is to help Mallo (a helpful character) rescue some children who are now trapped by a crook inside the walled structures. The catch is that you cannot do it alone and so you have to work with Mallo (who is stronger than you are) and solve the puzzling web of complex Pushmo architecture. You would need your sharp mind and Mallo’s strength to strike a balance in order to succeed.

In the gameplay, you have to push and pull through the blocks to create the space to stand. You can jump up or down from that place on your way to rescue. The places are challenging as the blocks are placed in a complicated manner. It would not be easy to navigate on your way so easily until you put yourself through a lot of mental exercise to tackle the challenge successfully. However, you can play the stages appearing too difficult to beat, later on. In higher stages, manholes play an important role in reaching to a point. There are more than 250 levels in the game. You can share the Pushmo puzzles using the built-in Nintendo 3DS camera to create a QR code, needed to upload the QR image online.

For purchase and other details of Pushmo for Nintendo 3DS, visit the official website.

The Oregon Trail: the old and new game

This game has been a hit among students from elementary schools for more than 40 years and has seen many platforms including the ancient DOS and latest Facebook.

The first release of The Oregon Trail game dates back to 1971. The game was developed to let the school students learn about the life of early inhabitants of Oregon Trail that is a 2,000 miles long stretch along the Missouri River. So far, ten updated versions of the game have been published, the latest being the one released in 2011. The gameplay involves playing as a pathfinder, guiding the caravan of migrants from Independence (fourth largest city of Missouri) to the Willamette Valley of Oregon in a typical Conestoga wagon. The backdrop of the game is set to a period of 1848.

The Oregon Trail is designed and developed in such a way to let the players relive the moments of past in the similar way as the pioneers did. The lessons about the historic region would come lively from the textbook as the game progresses. As a trailblazer, players would have to hunt the wild animals such as rabbits, squirrels, deer (or elks), bison, and bears. The player has a restricted supply of bullets and he can carry a maximum of 200 pounds of weight (of the prey) to the wagon. Members of the caravan are prone to illness, injuries, and death. There are scores, points, and final evaluation of a player’s skills as the mission is accomplished.

The game has been very popular among students of elementary schools, and for this reason it was launched on Facebook as well, in February 2011. For purchase and other details, visit The Oregon Trail website.
