827th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Zed Two Publisher: Ocean/Infogrames Time for our next Nintendo 64 title of the batch.

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.

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.
