Puzzlegeddon lives up to its name by combining the mental challenge of a puzzle game with the excitement of a fighting game. While slightly complicated, it will quickly hook those who try it.
One of Puzzlegeddon's strong points is its professional design and layout, with graphics that look like they came from a pricey store-bought game. The vivid color and detail, combined with excellent tutorials and simple mouse controls, made for easy but exciting game play. Its helpful onscreen tutorial was a necessity, since we'd never played a game with such complex goals before. Your primary job is to play a Tetris-like puzzle game in which you match a series of colored blocks to score points and build your fighting abilities. The exciting wrinkle to this puzzle is that other computer players are launching missiles at you the whole time, so you need to score points to build up your missiles and defenses. This creates a two-front war that is highly addictive and keeps players constantly moving and thinking strategically. The program's best feature is the option to play online against other human players. By successfully combining two different game types, Puzzlegeddon is an unforgettable challenge.
Puzzlegeddon's trial period limits the levels of play. We recommend it.
