    Trailer of the other versions, imagine it as the same spread over two screens and in lower res.


    From the makers of Puzzle Quest. One trick pony much.

    Grabbed the PSP version, still haven't bothered to play it.

    Sorta looks farmed out to a smaller team, as long as the gameplay is still intact that is all that matters.

    Probably my most anticipated DS game this month, but yet again if you look at this month's line-up...

    Hopefully it's almost as good as Challenge of the Warlords (wasn't a big fan of Galatcrix).

    Pretty much my exact thoughts. Galatrix would have been great if the controls weren't so unresponsive. I stopped playing after 10 minutes and never started again. CotW was so amazing, and if this comes anywhere near it, I will be happy.

    Confirmed working on original R4 firmware (v1.18). So odds are it'll work on most carts.

    Anyway, the game basically has pieces of 3 scrolling to the right, kinda like how pieces fall down in Tetris. You have to combine pieces together to gain Battle Gems to attack and get mana for special attacks. You'll learn more in the tutorial.

    It's a lot more story-driven than other Puzzle Quest games, which kinda sucks since the story isn't very gripping (if anyone saw 10,000 BC, which wasn't a very good movie, it's roughly that with more magic and crap). The puzzling itself is pretty addictive though.

    i guess they combined the best puzzle game with something to make it different... good idea but Tony's 313 pic is the whole idea (ie attract ppl with barbarianism)

    Funny: not working on the No$GBA v2.6. Working flawlessly on M3i Zero with latest Sakura.
