Crush3D Review

Marble madness.

Crush3D is a refreshed version of Zoe Mode's Crush, a smart, innovative platform-puzzler for the PSP which involved switching gameplay between 2D and 3D to progress - and immediately you can see why a 3DS version now exists.

You navigate the game's abstract levels as Danny, a psychologically troubled teenager dressed in an Arthur Dent-style dressing gown. Each course comes from his own subconscious, his mind trapped inside a mad scientist's machine.

Collecting your marbles (the not-so-subtly-named spherical items dotted around each level) will unlock an exit, but it's then a matter of getting there. Danny's a feeble little blighter, only able to jump a foot in the air and fond of perishing after too steep a fall. His limits are fairly realistic, in other words, but for a video game he is rather gratingly underpowered.

SEGA announces Crush3d for 3DS

Quirky PSP puzzle platformer returns.

Crush3d, a new take on PSP puzzle platformer Crush, is heading to the 3DS, publisher SEGA has announced.

First released in 2007, the Kuju-developed effort was a quirky little gem that tasked you with 'crushing' a 3D world into 2D platforms and vice versa.

Due for release on 9th September, Crush3d is a redesigned version of the same game incorporating new locations, characters and a hint system. You'll also be able to leave gifts for friends to collect in-game, using the system's StreetPass feature.
