Meteos is a fast-paced, innovative puzzle game for the Nintendo DS that combines strategic block matching with a cosmic storyline of galactic survival. Its challenging gameplay and multiplayer capabilities make it a memorable title in the puzzle genre.


Meteos, released in 2005 for the Nintendo DS, stands out as a landmark in puzzle gaming. With its innovative use of the DS’s touchscreen and stylus, Meteos offers a fresh and engaging experience that challenges both reflexes and strategic thinking.


In Meteos, players are thrust into a galactic battle against an evil planet named Meteo, which is bombarding the galaxy with deadly meteors. By aligning meteors of the same color, players can launch them back into space to protect their worlds and ultimately take the fight to Meteo itself.


While Meteos does not feature characters in a traditional sense, players encounter a variety of planets with unique attributes and inhabitants that add depth and variety to the gameplay.


Gameplay in Meteos revolves around using the Nintendo DS stylus to quickly align three or more blocks of the same color vertically or horizontally. Successfully aligned blocks launch off the planet’s surface, with the goal of clearing the screen to prevent overflowing and planetary destruction.


Meteos remains a beloved classic in the puzzle genre, notable for its creativity, challenging gameplay, and compelling use of the DS touchscreen. It is a testament to the potential of handheld gaming to offer unique and engaging experiences.
