Steampunk Puzzle Quest: Ironcast

Just last week I was wailing about the lack of a decent Puzzle Quest successor in my life and, lo, it's as if the Kickstarter gods were listening. Ironcast is Puzzle Quest, with steampunk mechs stomping around Victorian London, fighting for queen and country. Except that's not quite the full story, even though it would probably have been enough to capture my attention. The grid-based…

What To Play Instead Of Candy Crush Saga

So, it's fairly widely believed that King, creators of Candy Crush Saga, don't seem a very lovely lot. In fact, last week brought news of some alleged actions that are deeply unsavoury (geddit?), as the creator of CandySwipe revealed the extent to which King are apparently going to make his game - made in tribute to his late mother - go away. A game that,…

Wot I Think: Rune Masters

Here's what I find interesting about an average puzzle-game/RPG: I spent all morning playing one. An awful lot of games pass over my screen of a week, and many don't really grab my attention. I'm really not sure that CodeDaedmons' Rune Masters should have, but I can't deny that I played it from 9am to 12am without stopping. And in the end, it proves itself…

Connect Four WAR: Puzzle Quest 2

Remember 2007's mutant-evolution-of-bejeweled Puzzle Quest? The sequel, Puzzle Quest 2 (no subtitle here, but feel free to invent your own in the comments), hits Steam this Friday. I've got my hands on it early, and I've spent the last couple of hours matching my way to victory over various goblins and ne'er-do-wells. Ooh, it's good. How good? Read my impressions after the jump.

Neopets Puzzle Adventure – No, Come Back!

In case anyone's wondering how to get a story on RPS, it's all about jumping up and down and demanding. Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell has executed this with grace and finesse, and thus I'm forced to write about the forthcoming Neopets Puzzle Adventure. It's the sort of name your eyes glide right past when scanning a list of press releases. The idea of Neopets fills me…

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

While, as evidenced, Jim was running around like a TF2 scout at GDC, he didn't see everything. GameSpot UK managed to get some time seeing the new Puzzle Quest spin-off, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. ENVY. We possess ENVY. Putting aside the Euro-Sci-Fi graphics, the biggest change is that the game's based around a hex-based board with a more unusual gravity. For example, in a deep space…

Puzzle Quest A Go-Go

This isn't about Valve either. Because you know, games are busy. Kieron posted a couple of days ago about the freshly confirmed release date for Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, on the 22nd Oct. Turns out their "confirmation" wasn't enormously accurate, what with the game being on Gamersgate today. It's a teeny weeny download of only 85.8MB (exactly six Peggles) (don't believe the 58.94MB…

Puzzle Quest: Release Date Confirmed

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…
