This game is a gem in the Eshop with amazing 3D visuals and gameplay. You play as Mallo in the Pullblox Park a park made up of blocks which children use to make puzzles. Suddenly an evil boy comes and traps all the children in the puzzles. You are then tasked by Papa Box, creator of Pullblox Park, to rescue the trapped children.

You move blocks in and out of a grid trying to get to the top. And that's it. For over 100 levels that's all you do with only a few special levels to compensate. Also, the game has some major difficulty spikes with some levels that you will have to skip and then a level which you can finish in about two minutes. But what the game lacks in the amount of gameplay it makes up for in character. This game has so much heart and is very addictive.

Conclusion: this game is an Eshop masterpiece and everyone needs this game on their 3DS. With the sequel out now (and a review coming soon) you need this game.
