Puzzle Scape won't win any awards for originality. Its techno-stylish looks and half of its gameplay are cut-and-pasted right from the PSP's original smash-hit block-stacking game, Lumines (opens in new tab). And the other half of its gameplay comes from an even older falling brick brain-basher: Tetris Attack, which was most recently reborn asPlanet Puzzle League (opens in new tab)for the DS. Never played either one? Do that first 'cause they're both a little better, and when you tire of them, come back to this review.
Okay, here's the Puzzle Scape quick and dirty: you've got blocks falling from the sky, one big row at a time. The blocks are all the same shape: square, but they come in four different colors. They make a big pile at the bottom of the screen, where you can slide any individual block left or right as far as you'd like.
