Target Acquired: Pushy and Pully in Blockland

Pushy and Pully in Blockland, from Resistance Studio, is a 1P or 2P cooperative arcade-style game, taking place in 50 levels across five themed environments. The game's protagonists, Pushy and Pully, are zipping through space when they have a problem with their spaceship that causes them to land on a planet called Blockland, which is populated by many monsters and even more blocks. The game centers around pushing blocks in an arena, similar to the gameplay of Sega's classic Pengo. Players can push individual blocks into enemies, squashing them against the walls, or press against groups of blocks to break them one at a time. Lining up three blocks of the same color causes them to disappear and also leaves behind special items, such as bombs that can be pushed across the screen to cause explosions. The arenas are colorful, as are their various enemies, all of which must be defeated in order to move from one arena to the next. At the end of each themed area is a boss encounter, and defeating bosses allows Pushy and Pully to collect parts for their broken spaceship.

The game is now available on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, and Xbox One via Microsoft Store. It is also planned for release on Switch on May 21 and PS4 at a later date.
