ThruSpace Review


By Jeann Wong                            Price: 800 Wii Points

Nintendo’s ThruSpace game is reminiscent of 80’s game Blockout, which was basically Tetrisfrom a top down view. Instead of fitting multiple shapes (or Keydrons) together, you have one which you need to rotate to fit through the gaps in the floor. If you crash into the ground, or you take too long to reach the end, you will need to start again. Subsequent levels get progressively more difficult as you get a more complicated Keydron to rotate and maneuver, and the game speeds up quite a lot.

While falling through the gaps, you can collect gems if you orient the Keydron in a particular way. Combos and trick moves add an extra dimension to the game, which are great for boosting your points but quickly depletes the timer – which presents a challenge, as the timer ticks down quite fast in some levels. While the regular mode will have you racing against the timer and collecting as many points as possible, those who prefer a more straightforward game can opt for the Endless mode which omits the timer. There’s also a Trick mode where you can purely focus on executing combos and moves to boost your points. To top it all off, there’s also six extra Keydrons you can unlock with three stages in each.

ThruSpace is a solid puzzle game with a sleek visual style. It’s a fresh adaptation of Tetris which tweaks a concept that gamers are familiar with. The different modes adds plenty of replayability to suit different types of gamers.

We say: GOOD BUY

It looks pretty imaginative, and offers a great take on the game.
Nice review (albeit short and to the point!). =D
