Pushover This freeware remake of the puzzle game from 1992 replaces the graphics and sounds with enhanced assets, while maintaining intact the original gameplay and adding a level editor. The player controls G.I. Ant, the anthropomorphic cartoon ant that must rearrange lines of dominoes, and push them to make all the aligned pieces topple and fall. The ant can carry the pieces, even while climbing up and down ladders, and drop them on the correct places while carefully avoiding falling from the edges. Tokens are received after successfully solving a level. There's a varying amount of seconds available to finish each level, but it's possible to still complete it after reaching the time limit, and use a token to continue to the next puzzle.

There are some special pieces with unique characteristics, marked with red lines to differentiate them from the standard dominoes. The all-red stopper can't be toppled, and rebounds any other piece tumbling towards it. The vanisher has two red lines at the center, and disappears after being knocked over. The tumbler has a large red band at the center, and after being toppled keeps flipping and moving forwards until hitting one of the other pieces. The bridger has a thick red line at the center, and fills any gap in the ledge after falling into it. The ascender has a vertical red line at the center, and floats up after being toppled. The delay is diagonally painted red, and stays standing for a few seconds before falling over, rebounding any other piece that hits it. The exploder is marked with vertical bands of red and yellow, and detonates after hitting the ground creating gaps and destroying ladders. The splitter is activated after being hit by a falling piece, becoming two dominoes falling right and left. The trigger has three red lines, and must be toppled last to finish the level.
