Art of Balance
Art of Balance is more innovative than anything Nintendo has
published on the Wii U. You know what makes that statement scary? It is
true. And Art of Balance has already been released on the Nintendo 3DS,
and Wii in some form. The Wii U version of this physics puzzler is
Players are provided odd shaped blocks, and must balance them. The blocks must stay upright for three seconds or you will have to try again. How do you know if you balanced them properly? If not they fall into the water. Look its a balancing act. Sorry for the bad pun.
Graphically Art of Balance looks great on the Wii U. Again Shin'en Multimedia is putting Nintendo to shame. The music in Art of Balance is smooth and relaxing. Which most families will need if they are having problems figuring out how to stack the blocks.
Art of Balance is a downloadable only video game that costs $8.99 at the time this review was written. I would happily pay twenty dollars for a physical copy of Art of Balance. Games like Art of Balance need to be sold at retail in my professional opinion.
In each world of Art of Balance there are multiple paths that can be taken. After beating a certain number of levels the next world opened up. I choose to complete all existing levels before moving to the next world. Which is a good thing because things get harder in each subsequent world. The worlds in Art of Balance are alphabetical letters. The letters are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H.
I hope to see sequels to Art of Balance on the Wii U. This is the kind of a video game that makes the entire industry look good. Families are using games to understand how to balance things without falling. Like balancing work and home life. Or freedom and government.
