Puyo Pop (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: Lavastorm Engineering
Publisher: Sega
Released: 2003

Puyo Pop is a tile-matching puzzle game that was also released on the Game Boy Advance in 2002.

+ Gameplay is deceptively simple, as there are plenty of savvy chain reaction moves to learn that can help clear the playfield faster.

+ Puzzle mode offers a great way to hone your skills and learn advanced moves through scenario-based missions.

+ Two-player competitive mode adds a ton of replayability and lasting appeal once you've beaten the main modes.

+ The controls are highly responsive and allow you to make split-second decisions with ease.

+ The difficulty pacing is spot-on, as the opening stages gently ease you in before new coloured tiles and barriers are introduced.

- The playfield is incredibly small (even in solo mode) and there's occasionally some audio stutter, particularly when completing a puzzle.

- Not as intuitive as Tetris (1989, Game Boy) and it can take time for newcomers to become accustomed to the reliance on chain reactions.
