Puzzle Quest: Galactrix (DS)

 

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is a puzzle game that mixes in a healthy dose of role-playing strategy to offer up something different. While it doesn't have the same originality that its predecessor (Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords) had, it changes...

Great solid gameplay foundation ; Different style of gameplay changes things up from the original but still retain what made it so fun to play

Imprecise touch controls ; Far too much back and forth needlessly (though this is a problem with most RPGs) ; Crafting feels more like luck than skill

Players take on the role of a ship captain and traipse around the galaxy performing tasks (quests) earning money and materials along the way. These can then be crafted into, or sold for money to buy, other items to upgrade, such as better ship, or...

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Review

 

In space, no one can hear you become hopelessly addicted to gem matching.

Addictive puzzle action, huge game world, deep ship customization options

Load times are annoying, graphics take a hit, will eat your soul

It's this blend of casual pick up and play feel, deep, challenging gameplay and copious amounts of activities that makes this a very hard game to put down. Unfortunately, all of this content comes at a price, namely in graphical hitches and loading...

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

 

In 2007 when Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords was released it made puzzle loving fans pay attention. The familiar Bejeweled style of gameplay was fused with an RPG motif and it was clear right from the get-go that the combination was both...

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is a lot of fun and it reminds me why I enjoyed the first game as much as I did. The simple puzzle interface combined with the role-playing elements go together like peanut butter and chocolate. I also appreciate the change to a...

A hybrid puzzle game shoots for the stars.

Galactrix reaches for the stars, but isn't as stellar as its predecessor.

I was absolutely intrigued and utterly surprised by Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords when I reviewed it nearly two years ago. At the time, I felt a franchise could have been born; little did I know just how right I was

The successor to the surprise hit Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is an excellent hybrid of RPG depth and addictive puzzle gameplay. This time around, Puzzle Quest is set in a Sci-Fi universe, where you'll explore the...

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix - DS Game Reviews - The Armchair Empire

 

First, have to admit that I actually didn't play the first Puzzle Quest game (I do own it, I just never got around to giving it a try) which may be a good thing for someone coming into this series with a fresh set of eyes

Good story; Excellent blend of puzzle and RPG genres; Good mix of casual gaming with depth

Too much of the outcome left to chance; Touch controls don?t always work perfectly; Audio isn?t that interesting

E3 2008: Hands on with Puzzle Quest: Galactrix on DS

 

As though by magic, last year's

An enormous star map has you navigating dozens of solar systems, each with their own map filled with planets and roving ships. Factions governing each system force you to open diplomatic ties, as unfriendly factions will draw you into battle

Consumer review by:

bit upset by this tbh...

 

Ok, I LOVED the original battle quest for the DS. I spent many hours, if not days of play on that game... doing all the side quests and catching the beasts etc. it was mesmerising.
