The PC Demo’s been online for months, which was leading me to wonder what on earth was delaying the full version. Thankfully, it’s all sorted out, and will be out on the 22nd in the US. This is a good thing.
Puzzle Quest joins Peggle and Bookworm Adventures, becoming the third part of the holy Puzzle Trinity this year. Peggle (available to download here, weighing in at 14.3 MB or the size of 1 Peggle) is the one which has innovated in terms of mechanisms – mashing Pachinko into an inversed Puzzle Bobble. Bookworm Adventures and Puzzle Quest innovate in terms of structure. In Puzzle Quest’s case, it takes a simple RPG/Quest game and where they’d normally have battles, inserts games of Zoo Keeper. Shockingly, it works brilliantly. And, to add to the absurdity, the whole thing is set place in the none-more-PC-ier Warlords universe.
