This instalment in the Art of Balance series is easily the best to date and – despite some minor shortcomings – should be on everybody’s Wii U. The single player is a solid puzzle endeavour that would be enough in itself for this title, but Tower Tumble makes this game one of the best multiplayer experiences on the eShop by a long chalk. If you’ve got a Mario Party-like taste for multiplayer or just want to see countless friends suffer, you should check this out immediately.

Art of Balance on Wii U is definitely the best version of the Shin’en classic by far. The variety of control options, modes, and puzzles is a true delight, lasting a good number of hours. While it feels a bit unfair at times, the true quality of the overall experience still shines through constantly.

It will be hard for Shin'en to better this new Art of Balance, with its multitude of block styles, intriguing play arenas, choice of motion or stylus controls, local multiplayer co-operative and battle modes, online antics and leaderboards, as well as the extra modes that are just the icing on the cake, upping the game's quality in the value stakes. This Wii U eShop iteration is without doubt the ultimate version on offer, following the already mightily impressive WiiWare and 3DS eShop releases.
