No need to lead you on here. I think Puzzle Quest 2 [$4.99] is a fantastic game and a must-have if you’re a fan of the first game, match-3 or even loot-based RPGs. It’s even universal, and plays great on every device. I realize I’m tossing out a huge net, but it’s just that good of game. And now, for a limited time, it’s just about half off on the App Store, down from its original $9.99 price point.
I know there are only three people left on the planet who haven’t seen or checked out Puzzle Quest. The game is, you know, popular (and available on basically ever platform capable of playing a modern video game on). But in the interest of those three poor, poor souls out there, here’s a basic rundown via our review:
“Puzzle Quest 2 is a match-3 title drenched in RPG trappings. You’ll start the game by picking from a crop of traditional fantasy classes, each with their own abilities, and then be thrust into a medieval world with a lot of problems. People will want you to fetch them items, explore places, or kill monsters.
You can level up, equip weapons and items, craft even more, and navigate dungeons one grid at a time. Like in the previous Puzzle Quest, movement is restricted to following a developer-created path. You do not have complete control of your dude. But, really, that never matters. This is a game about killing, not meandering.”
So, yeah, feel free to pick it up. In the notes, publisher Namco isn’t giving up when this sale will end, but I have feeling — and it’s just a feeling — that it’ll last through this coming weekend.
