800th played so far Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Cyan Publisher: Broderbund Game 800!

798th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo We have been getting two things out of our Switch Online subscription.

793rd played so far Genre: Puzzle/Action Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Taito Corporation Publisher: Taito Corporation There’s an interesting subgenre of puzzle games which are escape rooms – a room you’re locked in, that requires puzzles to be solved to get out. It’s something I want to play around more with, as they’re […]

778th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Amblin Entertainment/EA Los Angeles Publisher:Electronic Arts The Wii is, or was, a popular platform for puzzle games.

766th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been bad in playing DS games, not getting to them as often as I should – even though they’re as often great for watching TV with or similar.

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me.

751st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Gameboy Advance/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo At this point, two different tasks I’m doing cross.

738th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Q Entertainment Publisher: Microsoft Studios There are a bunch of games that take after Tetris and the Lumines series always seemed like a worthy one.

725th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: WayForward Technologies Happily, unlike other digital platforms, DSi games are still very accessible for all players. One of those that’s been waiting on my 3DS for years has been Mightly Flip Champs. It’s one of those games that […]

711th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve seen A Boy and His Blob before, as a NES time attack video.
