A unique puzzle experience that blends the excitement of Meteos gameplay with the magic of Disney stories, Meteos: Disney Magic is a must-play for fans of the genre and Disney alike. Its innovative gameplay and nostalgic appeal make it a standout title on the Nintendo DS.


Meteos: Disney Magic brings together the captivating puzzle gameplay of the original Meteos game with the timeless appeal of Disney stories and characters. Released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS, it offers fans of all ages a unique gaming experience.


“Meteos: Disney Magic” is a captivating puzzle video game that was co-developed by Q Entertainment and Aspect, and published by Disney Interactive Studios for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console. Released on February 27, 2007, it is the sequel to the original “Meteos” game.

The game follows the same basic concept as its predecessor, but introduces many distinct changes. The most notable of these is the inclusion of Disney characters, replacing the various alien species from the original Meteos. The player must hold the Nintendo DS sideways, creating a taller playing field on the touch screen. The top screen displays a particular scene, which changes when a certain number of Meteos are launched off of the screen. These scenes include popular Disney franchises such as “Lilo & Stitch”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

One of the biggest changes in gameplay is the ability to drag tiles left and right, unlike the original Meteos where tiles could only be moved up and down. This only applies to Easy, Medium, and Hard modes; in Expert mode, only up and down movements are allowed.

“Meteos: Disney Magic” received generally lower scores than its predecessor. Nintendo Official Magazine’s review stated that “if you’re after a puzzler that’s easy to get to grips with then this is a good choice,” but added that “the original is still the definitive version,” and said that the new Disney animations were pointless. However, the review criticized it for a lack of online play, and for replacing the alien theme with the Disney theme. GameSpot found the gameplay to be as satisfying as in the previous title, complimenting the ability to move tiles horizontally, though also criticizing it for lackluster unlockable content and that the Disney theme wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea.

Despite the mixed reviews, “Meteos: Disney Magic” offers a unique twist on the original Meteos gameplay, providing a fresh and enjoyable experience for both Disney fans and puzzle game enthusiasts alike. Its incorporation of beloved Disney characters and themes adds a layer of charm and familiarity that sets it apart from other games in the genre. Whether you’re a fan of the original Meteos or new to the series, “Meteos: Disney Magic” is a game worth exploring.


Beyond Jiminy Cricket and Tinker Bell, players will encounter a host of Disney characters from various stories as they progress through the game. Each level brings new characters into play, deepening the Disney immersion.


Meteos: Disney Magic retains the core puzzle mechanics of its predecessor, challenging players to quickly match blocks vertically or horizontally. The game introduces Disney-themed power-ups and obstacles, adding depth and variety to the gameplay.


Meteos: Disney Magic is a delightful fusion of challenging puzzle mechanics and the enchanting world of Disney. It stands as a testament to the versatility of puzzle games and the enduring charm of Disney’s storytelling.
