The first on this week’s list of new Android games is a new puzzle game from makers of Zenge and Hook. PUSH has players push every button they can in order to finish each of the game’s levels.

Without any sort of score, goals, or objectives beyond finishing each level, this is a game that is meant to be a relaxing brain teaser that’s played at its own pace.
