Puzzle Quest: Galactrix trailer is short, sweet, and sadly void of Spacecat

At GDC this year, Dale North, Nick Chester and I giggled like school girls when we were shown a super secret and surprisingly intergalactic sequel to the addictive Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords.

Honestly, this first trailer for Puzzle Quest: Galactrix doesn’t reveal much at all. It shows enough, though, to give you a quick taste of the all new gravity mechanic. As you play each stage, the traditional colored tiles will actually fall in different directions depending on where your “puzzle ship” is in space. It is a tricky (but cool) feature and is sure to add an enormous amount of challenge to an already stressful game.

It is also nice to see that the ridiculously overdramatic music is making a grand return. I always loved that about the original Puzzle Quest.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is set to hit the Nintendo DS, XBLA, and PC in early 2009 (sorry PSP owners), but we are sure to see more of the game at next week’s E3.
