guncrashdx posted... Catherine is a game that has a puzzle nightmare section where you push and pull blocks to climb on them. Which is what Pushmo basically is.
But how similar is Pushmo to Catherine really?
Basically isn't enough to say its a ripoff. At its most basic they both involve the same thing(climbing and pushing around blocks), but thats like saying Super Smash Bros is a rip off of Mario Kart because it involves Nintendo characters and items. Catherine's focus is climbing to the top of puzzle before the ground disappears beneath you. Pushmo involves getting to the top alone, but is much more complex in getting to the top. Sometimes you have to pull certain blocks, go up a certain height, push another in, go back down, push the first set back, bring another further forward, etc. Both are puzzle games, but Catherine is more about getting from A to B as fast as possible, and Pushmo is about having the ability to actually get from A to B at all.
