    Martin, is Panel de Pon anything like the 1995 NeoGeo game Puzzle de Pon?
    I loved that game.

    Sadly, it's different, but Puzzle De Pon plays just like the U.S. release of Puzzle Bobble, which is also an A list puzzle game! [​IMG]

    GBA puzzlers huh, people seem to have taken most but there are a few more although they are predominately Japanese
    You can keep your tetris worlds but I will go with tetris advance.
    Ultimate puzzle games was pretty good as was dexters lab chess but I sense that is not quite the topic here.
    CHu Chu rocket
    Mr Driller A was fun (I believe there was a translation done/partially completed too)
    Space kexcite (very early Japanese puzzle game)
    Denki blocks (if you only take a look at one of my suggestions let this be it)
    Koro Koro puzzle
    Super Puzzle fighter (there are a few variations on this)
    Fortress
    Eggo Mania
    Minna no Ouji sama
    Puyo Pop
    Any of the Japanese puzzle games with simple in the name or minna no soft
    Super collapse
    Mighty Beanz pocket puzzles
    zooo

    The DS version of puzzle bobble is like Puzzle de Pon? Are you sure? Puzzle de Pon has a similar engine to Super Puzzle Fighter. It would be strange if they changed puzzle bobble so much.

    Sabre Wulf:
    Good Platformer puzzler. Its mostly platformer, but the puzzle element is strong enough to make ya think and review the area.

    "Gem Smashers" or "Pazunin - Uminin No Puzzle de Nimu" in japan
    Kinda like breakout without the paddle.
    You bounce a little ball thing around to hit differnt coloredblocks then exit when you get them all. Tons of levels plus bosses.
    Only drawback is its repetitive at times, you cant save until you beat a boss, plus the cute style graphics and sounds can get rather annoying after awhile. Also sometimes that little ball is hard to track when all the creatures are freed too quickly.
    The japanese vesion has differnt main charectors and aparently a differnt story.
    US version uses weird looking animals, while the JAP version uses weird flat looking drawn pople tings. I dunno, they look like happy faces with arms. Just with a not so happy look.

    Im not much of a puzzle player, but these two kinda stand out as good ones to me.

    "It's Mr Pants"!
    Everyone misses that one, probably cause of the weird name but it's actually a clean, block-based tessellating game and it's absolutely brilliant [​IMG]

    Probably double-ups below but consider these second-votes from a puzzle fanatic:

    Kuruin Paradise (japanese sequel to kuru-kuru kururin)
    Denki Blocks
    Guru Logic Champ
    Super Puzzle Fighter 2
    Rampage Puzzle Attack
    Sheep (all about herding sheep believe it or not)
    Tringo
    Zooo (aka Zoo Keeper in some countries)
    Bust-a-Move
    Puyo-Pop
    Eggo Mania
    Chu-Chu Rocket
    Mr Driller 2
    Tiny Toon Adventures - Wacky Stackers
    Gem Smashers (similar to Game Gear "Columns")

    Not sure if these count in your definition of puzzle but I'll list them anyway cause they come pretty close:
    Turbo Turtle Adventure (ball rolling around mazes)
    Super Monkey Ball (more ball rolling)
    Bubble Bobble - old and new (arcade-puzzle)
    Scrabble Blast (kinda like Boggle)

    In homebrew:
    Luminesweeper (port of lumines)
    Blocktrap
    and various Tetris-style things.

    While we're on the subject, has anyone got the supposed extra content in GBA Polarium to work? If you play it in a DS with Magnetica in Slot 1 it's supposed to unlock new puzzles and graphics, but I've just tried (with the US versions of both games) and couldn't find anything.

    Were there no Picross games for the GBA? I've been looking for ages and can't believe that nobody would have made one - they're the greatest puzzle games ever, and practically every Nintendo console ever has had some. All I've found is a homebrew called Battle Picross, which is quite nice, but not done properly (some of the puzzles absolutely NEED you to just guess at a square rather than work it out), and has such awful, awful music that you need to switch all sound off in order not to have a nervous breakdown.

    My favourites:

    Chu Chu Rocket (THOUSANDS of brilliant puzzles)
    Guru Logic Champ (takes a while to get going, though)
    Polarium Advance
    Lode Runner (the Small World levels)

    Mr Pants is complete rubbish, and Denki Blocks goes from really easy to insanely hard in the blink of an eye.

    I think that there are several Picross GB games that are playable with an emulator in a GBA, one is Mario Picross.
