As blocks fall from above, players must align similar designs by groups of
three or more to launch them back up. Players can move blocks only
vertically (preferably with the stylus, although the game can be played
with the control pad). As players unlock planets, they must learn each
one's unique gravitational rules and block style.
Defend more than 30 planets, each with its own alien race, theme
music, block style and gravitational laws.

There are an incredible number of modes, from Star Trip (progress from
planet to planet) to wireless multiplayer to deluge mode, where the
Meteos fall at a steadily increasing rate. Not only that, but almost
every mode is customizable, allowing players to set the difficulty level
of their opponents, time or stock limits, or even item sets. Items vary
from vision-obscuring smokescreens to Meteos-destroying hammers.
In all modes, players can earn Meteos. Anything launched off the top of
the screen goes into a bank, and players can then spend them to unlock
new planets, items, features and modes.
Besides an instantly addictive multiplayer mode, Meteos also features DS
Download Play, allowing players to battle up to three friends with just
one game card.
Before collaborating on Meteos at upstart studio Q Entertainment,
Tetsuya Mizuguchi produced Sega Rally, Space Channel 5 and Rez while
working at Sega, and Masahiro Sakurai created Kirby and Super Smash
Bros. as director of HAL Laboratories. Their impressive track records
are evident in their latest creation.
An evil planet named Meteo is sending storms of world-ending meteors
across the galaxy, and only your puzzle skills can stop them. As blocks
rain down, use the stylus to align similar ones and launch them back
