    It's Othello all over again. >_>

    I'll stick with the Atari 2600 version, thanks.

    Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords on the DS was not made by the same developer of Neopets Puzzle Adventure, but Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, however, IS (coming out Feb 2009).

    (However to note, the PC, PS2, and Xbox360 versions of PQ: CotW were done by Infinite Interactive.)

    That's good to know. Though Puzzle Quest was a fun and addicting Jewel-like game, it was pretty unpolished. Griptonite have been putting out some really polished games, so I look forward to fooling with this one.

    EDIT: Playing it now, and you can instantly feel Griptonite's hand in the making. The sounds are crisp, the presentation is very polished and pleasing, and the gameplay quickly introduces interesting new twists on the Othello formula.

    Griptonite is fast becoming one of my favorite handheld developers.

    Awesome game, very addictive, however the main story mode is really very short.

    Good news for any Neopets fans, any achievements you unlock will give you a code that you can put in at http://www.neopets.com/puzzleadventure which rewards you with rare Neopets Puzzle Adventure items.

    I've already got the full set though after only 4 hours of playing... :/

    What's that neopets anyways? Some sort of rip-children-off-with-boring-flash-games stuff or did I miss something? ( website is as uninformative as the lecture I'm force to attend this semester [​IMG] )

    Neopets (originally NeoPets) is a virtual pet website launched by Adam Powell and Donna Williams (they ain't there anymore, went to work on Twin Skies) on 15 November 1999. Six months after the web site was launched, Adam Powell and Donna Williams successfully sold a majority share to a consortium of investors led by Doug Dohring. On 20 June 2005, Viacom bought Neopets, Inc. for $160 million (USD).

    Neopets is based around the virtual pets that inhabit the virtual world of Neopia. Visitors can create an account and take care of up to four virtual pets, buying them food, toys, clothes, and other accessories using a virtual currency called Neopoints. Neopoints can be earned through playing games, investing in the stock market, trading, winning contests and making your own shop. Users can explore the world of Neopia with their Neopets and interact with each other through the NeoBoards, NeoMail, and guilds.

    Users are free to choose their own path in the world of Neopia, from collecting things to battling against other users. Visitors can create a free account. A user then creates a Neopet and chooses its unique name, physical characteristics, and personality and may own up to four per account. A newly created pet comes with randomly rolled stats used for battling in the Battledome. Players need to feed and care for their Neopets when they grow hungry or get sick, although they will not die if they are neglected. New users start out with a newbie pack of various items that introduce a basic feature of the site, such as food for feeding a pet. They can get more items for their Neopets by earning Neopoints, the site's currency, through various activities including playing games and selling items.

    Users can interact with their Neopets by reading books to them, caring for them, and playing with them. They can train their Neopets to be fighters in the Battledome against other player's Neopets or non-player characters. Wearable items, such as certain clothing, can be used to customize a Neopet. Players can build a customizable Neohome for their Neopets, furnish them, and buy extensions that reflect the socioeconomic quality of the house.

    Players can collect certain virtual items and display them in a gallery or album. In addition to items, players can also collect trophies, avatars, and site themes, although there is no function to display the latter two.
