The gameplay is pretty similar to the original. Players break or mark blocks according to the number on their to show a 3D model. Rows with no necessary parts in them are marked with a blue zero while the other rows are marked by a number indicating how many in a row matter. This entry introduced the orange numbers, which are blocks that do not fill an entire block and/or curved whereas blue numbers indicate straight square blocks that are used. The game also introduced the bomb button which eliminates any 0 blocks on the outer side.
There are a total of 10 amiibo supported by the game. Each one unlocks a puzzle based on that character. The supported amiibo are:
Peach and Toad unlock the same puzzle, so you only need to scan one of them.
Nintendo Life gave the game a 9 out of 10 and called it a "gem".
