    Hmm, I vaguely recall the PC versions.

    Do we have another decent puzzle game here?

    Hmm, is this something like Bejeweled? If so, I think I'll try this out. Been looking for something Bejeweled-ish on the DS for a while.

    Because of the font style and colouring. It's no coincidence; they've been referencing the same artwork whilst deliberately trying to recreate that ripoff effect, presumably thinking that Indiana Jones would somehow appeal to their target audience. Which is sort of a moot point since I assume their target audience happens to be null.

    Puzzle Quest.

    You've got to play Puzzle Quest.

    Think Bejeweled, but with added quests, equipment, monsters, RPG stats, magic, mounts, cities you can capture....

    Somehow, they added all of this to Bejeweled, and it works.

    Great game.

    Isn't a version of this, like one of the Bejeweled games, also on Xbox Live?

    If you've been looking for something Bejewelled-ish and missed Puzzle Quest, where the heck have you been living, if not under a rock?! Haha, man this game sounded interesting from title alone - that is, until I read the genre *sigh*

    Puzzle quest is nothing like Bejewelled, it's not even a puzzle game! Sure the screenshots look like it, but it's really a strategy game. That's why I hate it [​IMG]

    I do however love puzzle games, so might give this one a try. Zooo was better on the GBA than the DS (8 Quest mode [​IMG]) so it'll be nice to see what this one brings to the table.

    I never play flash games so I can't tell if it is copied from what or not, but I find this game amusing. It's nothing like Puzzle Quest, just match 3 gems and do this on all board squares. The story in the story mode seems boring though...
