ok its a mobile blog. but... its also a puzzle quest blog. so you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have, puzzle quest warlods.
wow. yeah i love's me my 80's sitcom theme songs. wanna fight about it?
so as i was saying, puzzle quest: warlords is now available on verizon's get it now service. having recently purchsed a poor man's (or verizon loyalist's) iphone (the LG Dare), i've been on the hunt for that perfect game that works with all touch controls. this one was a no brainer.
the game looks, plays and feels like puzzle quest. if you've played the game on steam, or xbla, or ds, or psp, then you know its good times! if you haven't played it before, consider yourself lucky, because your in for a treat. the game play translates perfect, and the presentation still has all that rpg charm that really sets this puzzler apart from the rest.
a monthly subscription will run you $3.49, while the full game will set you back 1200 MS points. booo! i mean $6.49 which is a bargain for this much addiction and enjoyment. there's a demo up too that will let you experience the first puzzle battle free of charge.
for the uninitiated, puzzle quest is a jewel matching game at its core, think bejeweled. the dept comes from the fact that different jewels (or skulls, or coins) translate to different abilities. you always play against an opponent, and the goal is to reduce thier HP to 0. this is done through matching skulls (which dole out HP), or by obtaining mana which can be used to cast spells, this is achieved by matching the colored gems. coins can be collected for making purchases down the road. matching 4 of a kind will net you an additional turn. little tweaks that add a surprising level of dept.
its rare that a mobile game is a 'must have', but this is that game. if you have a verizon phone, and you are a gamer, you need this in your life.
thanks for reading, you win the most lulz packed youtube i have seen in ages.
