Minimal Move is a new perspective puzzle game in 3D.

The game starts when the two space investigators, Kaiten and Ido landed on a mysterious planet for their mission to find out a secret of the planet.

The rule of the game is simple: move blocks and go to a portal!

Simple but complex, feel maximum space in minimal world.

A new innovative puzzle game, welcome to the world of Minimal Move!


  • Solve puzzles : Move blocks and go to a portal. The rule is simple but the puzzle is complex. Because it’s 3D puzzle so you can rotate your view point and see how to move! Find your minimal move to a portal!
  • Cooperate with or without : You can choose a single player or cooperation mode with two. In the game, cooperation with Kaiten and Ido is essential to go to a portal.
  • Move blocks : Kaiten can rotate blocks and Ido can move blocks from side to side and up and down.
  • Explore 7 worlds : There will be 7 worlds for the main story of the game. Each world will have different types of blocks for new ways of playing the puzzle.
  • Play more than 100 levels : There will be more than 100 levels of puzzles to play.
  • Meet fun characters : Adding to the main characters Kaiten and Ido, there will be many funny monsters and robots are coming on your way! You will find your favorite one on the journey!
  • Discover the story : Minimal Move has beginning, that means it has ending. We have an original story that you can discover with Kaiten and Ido along with the game, and it has a surprising ending! When you complete all the 7 worlds, you will find out the secret of Minimal World!
