Review: Numblast PSP

Posted by on November 11th, 2009 | 0 Comments | Tags: ,

Developer: JapanStudio
Release Date: November 5th, 2009
Price: $4.99
Demo: Yes (On The European Store)
Players: 1

What I liked:

  • The controls are easy to learn, which makes the gameplay more enjoyable.
  • The visuals look much better on the smaller PSP screen.
  • The amount of puzzles in Puzzle Mode is just right.
  • The Time Trial mode is the perfect mode for “snack gaming”.

What I disliked:

  • The time where you are allowed to chain could be a little longer.
  • The replay system isn’t really useful because they can only be viewed in game.
  • As we said in the PS3 review, the special blocks don’t really add much.
  • There is no option to remove the subtitles.

If you want to pick up Numblast, I would most certainly reccommend the PSP version over the PS3 version. Time Trial is perfect if you only have a few minutes to play, and if your trip is a bit longer there is always Endless Mode. This type of puzzle game is more suited to a portable platform. Sure you will be losing the trophies and online leaderboards, but the game looks so much better on the smaller PSP screen and I always think portable when playing a puzzle game. For the price, it is one of the better puzzle games on the PSP.
