The PSP has TONS of puzzle games but nothing quite like this. Crush is about a scientist who creates a machine called C.R.U.S.H. and a guy named Danny can’t sleep at night so must solve his problems by going into his own mind. Crush is just so innovative and original…I mean more than Lumines ever was! You solve puzzles by manipulating the level buy “crushing” the level from 3D to 2D and getting to the exit.
The way the levels are setup and HOW you can move in levels is what’s so innovative. You can move the camera to a top down position and crush and you’ll be walking on top of everything but not just like that. There are different colored walls that mean different things say a green was you can’t walk through while crushed and you can’t crush on them. Brown walls you can go through etc. Then there are boulders you can push onto buttons, and you collect a certain number of marbles to open the exit and the list just goes on. The game has only 50 puzzles which is pretty long for this type of game and the story is very amusing and interesting. The graphics and audio is top-notch here and it’s just so addictive and fun.
