The most fun you can have with a numbered grid and a chisel.

Push! is a rare gem in the community. Non-RPGs made with RPG Maker are pretty uncommon, so when they come along you tend to notice them.

It's technically sound - a testament to Sei's RPG Maker ability - and has a funny storyline. It's nothing very deep, nor is it particularly interesting, but I can't help but giggle at a character with the name Ein Yo Phantz.

The gameplay will be immediately familiar to anyone who's play Picross, since it's essentially the same game. You get a blank grid with some numbers on the sides which show you how many tiles on that row/column should be chiselled out. After you've chiselled the correct tiles, it makes a pretty picture of some kind. It's pretty simple stuff.

The soundtrack is equally simple, with a single mellow track playing for every level. It's pretty catchy, though, and more than once I've found myself humming along to it as I try in vain to uncover the latest image forming in front of me.

There is quite a bit of replay value in Push! too, with Tenkei mode and a couple of other interesting options. The ability to design your own puzzles was a really nice touch, although I never really used it much.
