PUSH BLOCKS. FORM SQUARES.    OR DIE TRYING!

Pushamo is an arcade push-em-up that challenges you to organize different shapes into squares to clear blocks and earn points! It's no easy task, though - as you push on, shapes will come faster and more frequently until you find yourself as overwhelmed as you are engrossed.

  • Satisfying core game loop: An creative take on the block-clearing genre that offers endless replayability and high-scoring
  • Many ways to play: Point Rush, 2P Coop, Puzzles, Challenges, and more modes lead to a massive variety of play experiences
  • 8 bits of awesome: Authentic retro experience built in PICO-8



CREATE HUGE COMBOS

By forming large clears you can earn massive amounts of points and unleash a shower of visual effects. This strategic combo system also rewards you for all kinds of special clears, from Risky to Tidy to Back 2 Back, and many more!

Celebrate and share your most awesome combos with the press of a button - F4 - to record the last 8 seconds of gameplay as a lightweight GIF!

BREAK THE RULES

Challenge Mode presents over a dozen diverse rule variations on the already addicting core gameplay! These inventive scenarios range from wonderfully wacky to fiendishly difficult to ingeniously imaginative:

  • Swap out the familiar tetrominos with some less orthodox shapes
  • All the blocks are invisible after stopping
  • You're also playing snake now, at the same time
  • And many more!

SIT BACK AND RELAX

Pushamo also offers plenty of calmer experiences for when you want to chill and zone out, and want a less stressful time:

  • Play endlessly without blocks ever increasing in speed in Zendless mode.
  • Think over each and every move in the tactical Turn-Based mode! Here, blocks will wait patiently for you to decide your next move before they go anywhere.
  • Ponder over the perplexing Puzzle mode, where you're presented with 32 hand-crafted puzzles that ask you to use all blocks in a single clear.
