Dana Jongewaard of Gametap reviews Neves for the DS:
"When I hear 'Yuke's,' I think wrestling--the developer is best-known for for its WWE titles, including the recent WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 08. I do not think about puzzles that have you arranging a group of shapes into a variety of silhouettes.
"However, that's exactly what Yuke's new DS game, Neves, is. The concept is based on Lucky Puzzle, a game designed by Japanese company Hanayama back in 1935. You get seven shapes, are presented with a silhouette of an object, and need to figure out how to fit the shapes together to perfectly fit inside the silhouette."
