Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

 

Like peanut butter and chocolate, certain things you wouldn't expect to go together do go together surprisingly well. Second case in point: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, a puzzle game and role-playing game mashed-up together in a satisfyingly delicious game.

The original Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords was a fun and surprisingly addictive story-driven role-playing game (RPG) that used match-three, Bejeweled-like puzzle elements as the combat mechanism. Puzzle Quest: Galactrix sheds the fantasy...

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...

Puzzle Quest Galactrix Nintendo DS Review

 

The puzzle grid is a combination of Bejeweled and Hexic. It resembles Hexic's hexagon-style playfield, but you still match up three or more pieces in a row to remove them. Each individually colored piece serves a purpose, letting you power up special...

Nice twist on the Puzzle Quest formula, terrific presentation and lots of puzzles to solve, superb multiplayer

Multiplayer requires two copies of the game, tedious missions (like opening LeapGates), constant loading

When Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords arrived on the Nintendo DS last year, we were amazed at how Infinite Interactive effectively combined the fun of Bejeweled with role-playing elements. Its sequel, Puzzle Quest Galactrix, offers a new way to...

The combination of classic puzzle gameplay and RPG game mechanics results in something greater than the sum of its parts.

Classic puzzle gameplay combined with interesting RPG game mechanics; plenty of different game types to keep things fresh

No online multiplayer on DS; difficult to set up online multiplayer on PC

You unlock "leap gates" which allow you to travel to other parts of the galaxy map by matching different colors in a timed game. Haggling for better prices at various space ports is accomplished by clearing a certain number of tiles on a fixed board...

"Enjoying the game so far!"

 

I wasnt sure about this game when I first purchased it because so far I havent liked any games to do with space, but after playing this for a little bit found that I quite enjoyed the game, a little bit addictive & I didnt want to put it down. I...

"A bit ordinary"

 

Technical: There is so much saving and loading in the game it feels like I\'ve gone back to the days of games on floppy disk. Whenever you leave a system to go to the galactic map, the game spends a noticable amount of time loading, as it does when you...
