Consistent Elements

The characters, Mallo and Papa Blox, appear in each iteration. Every one of them takes place in Pushmo Park, and Papa Blox created all the Pushmo.

Each game has several Pushmo. The first bunch are random shapes but later ones are designed to look like something. The goal is to get to the top of each Pushmo. Throughout the story of each game, Pushmo have either children or birds to rescue, but eventually get replaced with flags. The extra levels have flags to get regardless of progress through the game.

Each game also has a level editor that distributes levels via QR codes. To ensure each level is possible, the creator has to complete a level before creating a QR code.
