943rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Q-Games Publisher: Nintendo Looking at the list of other Q-games titles we’ve played and that they published, such as the Pixeljunk series, Starship Patrol and Reflect Missile, it’s clear that they were one of the known indie developers for Sony and […]

933rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Oh man, here we’ve got another version of the block dropping puzzle genre. Not to say that they’re bad – the popularity of Tetris is obvious and I’ve enjoyed many other games in the area. It’s just that […]

923rd played so far Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: Electronic Arts There are quite a few games on the list described as Adventure/Puzzle games. They include Myst, one of the earliest examples of the idea, giving you an area with puzzles to explore, Professor Layton in a few […]

904th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom It feels like there was this era where Capcom created almost-parody games of itself. While SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash is a proper game, there’s also something odd about its use of the franchises. Super Puzzle Fighter II […]

896th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Role Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Infinite Interactive Publisher: D3 Publisher Yeah, I’ve kept Puzzle Quest until the end. It’s a puzzle RPG which, to make it easier on myself, I’ll be playing on the DS so I have some TV distraction if I want it. I’ve […]

895th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: G-Artists Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Intelligent Qube feels like it fits in with a number of these puzzle games with simpler graphics, using the system’s 3D capabilities but using the abstraction to not need complicated graphics. Devil Dice comes to mind […]

871st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mindware Corp Publisher: Nintendo With all the digital storefronts disappearing – in particular Nintendo’s offerings disappear early – it feels right to get these indie titles done earlier so I don’t have to worry about disappearing or breaking consoles. So far we’ve […]

860th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Hudson Soft Publisher: Hudson Soft Unlike other games, I didn’t play Slitherlink because I grabbed it next on my list. The DS version isn’t easily found in English, but all of it was based on an existing paper game which has […]

858th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Firebrand Games/Atlus Publisher: Focus Home Interactive/Atlus I had an amazingly good time a while ago with Trackmania: United Forever for the PC. The racing felt fun and the puzzle and track building was a pretty fun twist. It wasn’t the first […]
