Stretchmo is free to download and you get the first seven puzzles of the game free to try out. From there you have a number of options in how you want to pay to add content to the game. There are four additional puzzle packs available to purchase.
- Mallo’s Playtime Plaza ($4.99): 100 progressively challenging levels that introduce the basics of the game.
- Poppy’s Sculpture Square ($2.99): 50 puzzle levels shaped like animals and objects.
- Corin’s Fortress of Fun ($2.99): 50 levels featuring new gizmo obstacles and enemies.
- Papa Blox’s NES Expo ($2.99): A treat for retro fans that features 50 levels based on classic NES characters.
You can buy all four in a bundle together for $10. If you buy the first one, Mallo’s Playtime Plaza separately you can get a bundle of the other three packs for $6.99. If you buy Poppy’s Sculpture Square, Corin’s Fortress of Fun, or Papa Blox’s NES Expo separately you can get a bundle of the other three for $8.99. That’s not confusing at all, is it?
