    5.0 out of 5 stars A True Future Classic 3 Feb. 2006
    Or it will be, if enough people actually buy the DS and play this game! The idea of Metoes is to line up three blocks of the same colour by moving them vertically within their columns. This results in the blocks ('Meteos') igniting, and the stack launching upwards. Depending on the level ('Planet') it may be necessary to create more ignitions in mid-air, or to launch more Meteos from underneath to push the whole lot off the screen.
    Whilst playing the game takes a little time to get used to, once learned, the game is impossible to put down. With a vast number of planets to unlock and play on, each with its own characteristic gravity, blocks and soundscape (some of which are so good, you'll play the level just to hear them), it takes ages to see everything. And after you do, you'll still keep coming back. This game is perfect fot the DS's touch control, and a real demonstration of the evolution of block puzzle games.
    The only thing stopping Meteos being the DS's version of Tetris is the initial learning curve. But perservere! There's frantic block puzzling to be had!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A great game, but not perfect. 13 Nov. 2005
    Verified Purchase
    This is indeed a good game. It's the first Tetris-style game I've come across that is as truly original and addictive as Tetris was when it first came out.
    Visually it's very nice, and doesn't try too hard to be flashy at the expense of game play. It's also clear that the game would only work on the DS, since the touch-screen is essential to the way the game is played (particularly when it's going really fast).
    It's addictive, entertaining, varied and overall very enjoyable. For some reason, though, I find myself not wanting to go back to it as often as I would have imagined. I think that although there is variety, once you've played it for long enough you've more or less experienced everything, and the only thing left is to try to beat all your high-scores.
    Probably good for competitive types, but for me it knocks one star off the score.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Meteos the magnificent ! 26 Dec. 2005
    I've read many reviews about this game and couldn't resist buying it and am so pleased that I did. It is in my opinion the BEST GAME ON THE DS, and far exceeded my expectations. It has a really good soundtrack and loads of options and the gameplay is simply amazing !!! Be warned once played you can't put it down !!!!!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A flawless, wonderful game 24 Sept. 2005
    By A Customer
    This gem of a game requires more planning and strategy than something like Zoo Keeper, but it's worth it.
    It's basically very simple to play, and as you'd expect, makes excellent use of the stylus, which is dead handy as the game can get very fast and frantic at times, so you need full control (which you do have).
    I'd say this is one of the best games of recent years - on any format, and is a necessary purchase if you have a DS.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Highly addictive 24 Oct. 2005
    This game is very easy to get the hang of. When you first start playing, the gameplay is very simple (and there's a rather entertaining short tutorial explaining the basics). Once you've been playing for a while though, you notice different strategies and techniques to launch meteos and the game becomes so much more fun. There are loads of different planets, each with slightly different characteristics that affect gameplay so each level plays differently. Moreover, each planet has different graphics and sounds that make each one unique. As you play the game, sound effects are set in time to the music, so in some stages it feels like your actions are generating the music. Meteos is a simple to pick up, fast-paced (I imagine four skilled players playing multiplayer would be crazy), fun and addictive game, probably the best puzzle game out for the DS, and definitely worth a look.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Blasting Blocks into Space 22 Nov. 2005
    Oh, now this is a 2d puzzle game.
    Relentlessly single blocks drop, and for once you don't control their descent. Swap round blocks after they've landed (vertically only, mind) to form lines of three horizontally or vertically, which launches the blocks (and any above them) back up into space if you can get them high enough. You can swap blocks round while they're being blasted upwards, but you can't reuse an ignited block until it has had chance to... Well, I suppose cool off.
    A fantastic and interactive sound track enhances the gameplay, and it's one of the few block-dropping puzzle games where the multiplayer is flawlessly implemented to the point that single player feels a little dry without a not-too-bad ai filling in the role of opponant(s) for you.
    Recomended to all fans of puzzle games.
