'Magnet School: Ochige 201

   0


Anything Else? – Off the cuff, Rain Drops is about the closest counterpart to Waku that I’m aware of, though it’s almost as comparable to PuzzLoop in principle. Of course, if you’re looking for “official” Pokemon puzzle games you’ve got the likes of Puzzle League (a Panel de Pon reskin) or Trozei, though ironically neither of them integrates the series’ central “monster training” theme into their gameplay as ably as Waku does. If you want to try another puzzler by Altron, from the days before they sank into licensed game hell, the dice-based Rox: 6=Six might be up your alley.

------------

That’s all for this week – make sure your chairs are on top of your desks before you leave, or the janitor will start beating me again.

Oh, and before you go, a personal question: having completed three classes so far, have any of you out there actually been persuaded to try any of the games we’ve studied here? I’m quite curious to know…

Either way, I’ll be back next Monday, and I hope you are too.

About BulletMagnetone of us since 9:04 PM on 10.04.2008

Thanks kindly for paying my blog a visit.

I'm currently looking for paid writing gigs, so if you might want anything written shoot me a message (craighats at hotmail dot com).

In case the contents of this blog don't make it obvious enough, I have something of an affinity for slightly "offbeat" titles, so if there's something out there that few others cover, there's a fair chance I'm at least somewhat up on it.

If there's any sort of (reasonable) inquiry you'd like me to address, please don't hesitate to be in touch.

Below are a handful of recaps and other links (oldest listed first by section), in case you're interested - asterisks mark promoted articles.
