Grab your controller and build a balanced stack in this physics-based puzzler!
Art of Balance, one of the all-time best physics-puzzlers (88% on Metacritic.com) has finally made its way to Nintendo Switch™.
Puzzle games must be addictive. That's why we designed 200 levels to not only challenge your skills but also your imagination. With its tight controls, Art of Balance is easy to pick up and hard to put away.
The goal sounds simple at first: Build a balanced stack from all given shapes, but there are plenty of challenges. Some shapes break under load, while others can even reverse gravity and literally turn the stack upside down. With practice, some experimentation and a little bit of luck however you'll quickly master even the most difficult challenges.
Packed with 5 unique game modes, online play and local split-screen, Art of Balance is the ultimate test for aspiring puzzle masters. Three additional players can join in at any time and help you solve the puzzles.
With a relaxing lounge soundtrack and 8 beautiful environments, Art of Balance is the ideal fit for casual gaming sessions alone or with friends. Play at home or on the go and challenge other players on their Nintendo Switch.
- Play 200 levels spread across 8 worlds, each with its own unique lounge style.
