Editors' review

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.

    "Puzzlegeddon Review"

    December 14, 2008   |   By Shaytanic

    Version: Puzzlegeddon demo

    Pros

    Character Design, Backgrounds, Music, Sounds, Gameplay, Kick Player

    Cons

    Kick Player

    Summary

    I am not much of a Puzzle man, but this Action style Puzzle game, is great fun. The Tutorial mode comes in handy, I got beat and didnt like that too much, I guess learning what to do comes in handy. With cool bot design, and your selection being a pirate ship, a monster mansion, etc etc, with the great backgrounds, this game supplies hours of fun. Not just in playing, but viewing pleasure. Once you have figured out how to play this game, it is highly addictive. The demo is limiting, but thats expected for a demo. The only downside I see to this game is the kick player function, though this can be great when starting, kick out all three bot build up your moves, add them again, and attack them. The downside, is that the Sudden Death round can also be cheated this way, kick out all the bots, and you win! Good I guess in a way, but personally I believe this function should be disabled in Sudden Death. For a puzzle game, I thought this was great, four Star!
