As promised, TransGaming has delivered a free trial version of Puzzle Quest [App Store, Free].

This introduction to Puzzle Quest offers you the ability to create your hero, embark on some quests, and learn to battle on the head-to-head puzzle board.

To further stimulate sales, TransGaming has also simultaneously dropped the price of the full version of Puzzle Quest down from $9.99 to $7.99 [App Store]. As we previously reported, the full version of Puzzle Quest will be getting a Chapter 2 update included in the coming weeks. This should offer over 40+ hours of gameplay total.

Puzzle Quest is a very highly rated game on multiple platforms. If you've never played the game, you might be surprised by fun to be had in an RPG Match-3 game. With a free trial version now, there's no reason not to try.

    to be clear, the Chapter 2 will be included as a free update to Chapter 1.

    For anyone on the fence about this, pick the game up. I know people are saying there's no polish and that may be true when comparing it to the PSP version, but the game is very deep. I picked it up last Friday and though I would have liked to save $2, I don't regret the purchase.

    This is one of the few games that warrant a $10 price tag (especially with Chapter 2 being free).

    Damn!!! I just bought this two days ago! Figured since Part 2 would be a free upgrade they wouldn't be dropping the price... Should have waited. Oh well, it's worth much more then the $10 I paid for it.

    Crim, Diggity, marc, just throwing my name in as another person who just paid $10 for it after hearing about the free update. Haven't even started it yet myself though ]: Damnit...

    Still undecided because I love my psp version and I do feel the graphics and polish make the experience more enjoyable because I tried the ds version and it's not the same. I'm aware of the bugs in the psp version but still I think i'm going to hold off on the iphone version for now.

    Wow! I'm glad I didn't give into the temptation to buy this — it's horribly clunky.

    hmmm should I stick with the pc version or the iphone one? they better bring the puzzle quest space one to the iphone too, and not so horribly ported like this version.

    It's a great underlying game, but the port is ghastly. They'd have to redo a lot of the assets to get them looking nice on the iPhone's resolution, and it's clear that the developer didn't bother.

    @wizard

    agreed - you are exactly right. it IS a great underlying game and the PORT is ghastly. i guess i've flip flopped.

    @all

    for your own good, skip it, it's a crappy version.

    Relative to all the other versions of the game on different platforms: yes, this is probably one of the crappier incarnations. Graphics are stretched or hanging off the screen in some places, the status effect icons during a match are so tiny there's no way you could ever know what they are (or even notice them at all), and there's a myriad of other interface quirks.

    With all that being said, I play this version much more than I've ever played the one on my Xbox 360. The problem is that I just don't have the kind of time to sit down in front of my TV and play hours upon hours of video games anymore. But, I do have 5-10 minutes multiple times a day to spare when I'm out and about, which is perfect for pulling out my iPhone and playing a quick match or two.

    So, even with it's problems, the game is still very much playable, and I can't get enough of it. I play this game more than any other on my iPhone, and it was well worth the $10.

    Just tried the free trial and it's not horrible, but very sloppy compared to the psp and pc versions. Samurai Puzzle battle is a better alternative and it's only 2 bucks :)
