Meteos is a puzzle game about preventing the destruction of the entire universe.

 First Impressions - Meteos // DS /// Eurogamer
Meteos is the creation of Masahiro Sakurai, another developer at Q with unquestioned pedigree.
By the end of a round as your screen fills up and your stylus weaves boosting blocks out of the mayhem, the sound is like joyous delirium, sirens warning you of impending doom clashing with horns and swooping noises and all the rest, and you wouldn't turn it off unless you really had to.
Meteos is perfectly playable - and thunderously enjoyable - in its native form, but there are questions that our kanji-ignorant brains have no answer to, and the worth of the unlockables is one such query.

 Gamerz-Edge - Meteos Review for Nintendo DS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Meteos is named after an evil planet that seeks to destroy the rest of the planets in the universe through the use of multicolored appropriately-named Meteos blocks that rain endlessly from the sky.
In Meteos, the blocks fall from the sky, often quite rapidly, and you can only move the blocks in a vertical fashion (though matches can be made both horizontally and vertically).
Meteos is set up in a versus environment; in most play modes, the blocks you send to the top screen will be sent to an opposing player’s playing field, even if you’re just playing against CPU player(s).

 Review - Meteos // DS /// Eurogamer
Meteos, which deals with both, has been put together by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, whose work speaks for itself, and Masahiro Sakurai, who invented Kirby and Smash Bros. From our perspective then, it's a big game about big things.
It's going to spark an enormous debate now that Meteos is in the hands of a lot of Western gamers, and this will probably happen again later this year when the game comes out in Europe, but ultimately there's no right answer.
Scrubbing is a threat to Meteos' brilliance, then, and for that there's a perfectly legitimate argument for taking it down a notch.

 Meteos (DS) Reviews. DS Games Reviews by CNET.
Meteos was clearly designed with multiplayer competition in mind, so it's great that the game gives you the option to take on up to three other players using just one cartridge, through the system's download play feature.
Meteos also tracks a ridiculous number of different statistics, helping make you feel like all your time spent with the game is contributing to something greater--especially since certain unlockables are tied to other metrics, like your overall time spent playing, and not just your number of meteos fired offscreen.
Some stages and their meteos look better than others, but overall, Meteos has a fun look to it that keeps up with the rate of the action.

 IGN: Meteos Review
The studio's got plenty more up its sleeve as its second game, Meteos is just as brilliant a puzzle game, this time exploiting the touch screen function of the Nintendo DS to produce a fast, frantic, and fun challenge that has a ton of replayability.
Meteos definitely has the Nintendo DS system's touch screen to thank for the game's creation, because without it this game wouldn't have been possible…or any fun.
Meteos on the other hand seamlessly incorporates an overall theme with its game design; the Meteos pieces are threatening to destroy a specific planetary world, which requires the player to work fast to save the planet by launching them back into space.

 Meteos for DS Review - GameDaily
In this case, the evil planet Meteo is firing these multicolored rocks called Meteos into deep space, and as they sail through vacuum and into the atmospheres of various planets they strike the surfaces with immense power, causing these celestial bodies to explode into a billion pieces.
Meteos of all colors and designs constantly drop into place and form vertical columns, and the object is to link three or more of the same type in a horizontal or vertical row, whereupon which they'll take off like a rocket towards the top of the screen.
Unfortunately, Meteos are rather small, and if you're frantically rushing to avoid being destroyed (which is called a Nova), more often than not you may go to touch the blue piece but instead latch onto a yellow one.

Fortunately for Meteo, they happen to be in possession of the most powerful weapon in the universe: explosive colored blocks.
Meteos’ plot ties in the concept nicely, but at it’s core is basically an excuse to play with blocks.

 Meteos - DS Game Reviews - The Armchair Empire
Incredibly enough there’s an actual “story” behind Meteos, which I won’t spoil for anyone but it does involve an irate planet that has filled the galaxy with deadly rocks that threaten to wipe out all life.
There are several modes of play including the basic single-player game where the gamer has to “save” a series of planets from various Meteos threats – basically there’s a quota for the various colors – and a challenge mode where it’s all about the highscore (or Classic Classic as I like to call it).
In a sign of things to come, the Meteos demo can be downloaded wirelessly to other DS units.
