Push Sushi is an adorable puzzle game where the player is a sushi chef trying to get one special order out to the customer. In order to do this, they must navigate through the other pieces of sushi on the board. This is done by moving them around either horizontally or vertically until a clear path is open to slide the main piece of sushi off the board. As the player works through the levels they earn coins which can be used to purchase new pieces of sushi to use as your “character” on the board. They can also be used to purchase hints for when the player is stuck and not sure what move to make. 

The game features a Back button on each puzzle as well, allowing for the player to go back several moves to retry a puzzle. They also have the option to start from the beginning. At the end of the puzzle, the game lets the player know how many moves it took them to finish the puzzle. The number of moves that the player takes directly affects their score and the amount of coins they receive. The fewer moves the player makes, the better. 

In addition to the normal game mode, there are also daily challenges for the player to complete. A scoreboard also keeps track of the player’s achievements and high scores. 

Push Sushi is a free-to-play game but in-app purchases are available.

Push Sushi helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

The puzzles in Push Sushi require that the player think in a flexible manner. Each piece of sushi can move only one way; vertically or horizontally. This means that to clear the path for the main piece of sushi to leave the board, the player needs to be open to how each piece can move around on the board and in what order they need to be moved in one direction or another. Players who struggle with flexibility may find it difficult to complete the puzzles in the shortest number of moves or complete the puzzle at all. In order to practice flexibility, the player should start with earlier levels and repeat them, trying different orders and movements to see how they can complete the puzzle in as few moves as possible. 

Planning: Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

Completing the puzzles in Push Sushi  in as few moves as possible ensures that the player earns the maximum number of points. This requires the player to use their planning skills to anticipate how many moves it would take to solve the puzzle before they attempt to complete it. Otherwise, they may end up adding multiple unnecessary steps to the puzzle before its completion. Players who struggle with planning should play through a few beginner levels and try not to use any hints. Looking at the puzzle before making any moves to visualize how the pieces could move is a good way to practice planning a course of action and completing the puzzle in as few moves as possible.
