'Magnet School: Ochige 401 (Hon.)

   0


Anything Else? – There are quite a few puzzlers based around some sort of “link the path together” mechanic – some quick examples are Cachat (aka Tube It) and the above-mentioned Sen-Know in arcades, Konductra and Electro for the DS, or even Extase on the Amiga. Of course, if you just like blowing stuff up, you might want to look into Panic Bomber, Bombliss (aka Tetris Blast), Bombastic (aka Xi Go, a sequel to Devil Dice), or maybe Bomb Link. If you hunger for both elements at the same time, though, the Kururin Pa! duo are the only games I know of which can scratch that particular itch.

Well, everyone, as I inferred in the beginning, those were the very last ochige on our list – from this point forward I hope you all…do I see a raised hand back there? …huh? “What’s next?” You do know that I’ve just exhausted the most common puzzle sub-genre, so it’s not like there’s much…yes, yes, I know that there are games I missed, but… *sigh* Okay, listen – feel free to stick your heads in here next week if you want, but I can’t guarantee anything else. I mean it – graduation is coming up!

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.
