PUZZLEBOX setup – A Game Played by Holding Your 3DS Upside-Down

PUZZLEBOX setup is a fairly straightforward game, except that you have to hold your 3DS upside-down to play it.

But there is a method to this madness. The game is played by scrolling across an unfinished painting on the top – bottom? – screen, and having you fill in the needed coloured tiles by dragging them down from the…touch screen. It wouldn\’t quite have that Tetris-like feel of falling tiles without inverting the screens.

There are over 60 levels, two difficulty settings, and adjustable scrolling speeds. Copycat Mode is a sort of time attack option in which the painting doesn\’t scroll at all, but the goal is to draw it all in as fast as possible. \”Decide by yourself if you want to relax or to experience a hardcore challenge.\”

For completionists, Combo Coins are awarded when you get 5 matching tiles in a chain. The game has 2382 of them in total.

All that said, the 3DS is designed to be held a certain way, so wouldn\’t PUZZLEBOX setup make it feel very top-heavy? True art is impossible without sacrifice.
