Puzzle Quest In Space!

Though many groaned when they first heard or "Puzzle Quest", a name which reeked far too much of nerdiness, the original turned out to be one of the best gameplay experiments of 2007. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords mixed an interesting fantasy storyline, Bejeweled-style puzzle gameplay, and RPG elements like levelling and equipment to make a stellar PSP game that was so successful that it was translated onto the other consoles as quickly as possible. This sci-fi edition of the series promises to do the same in a new environment, and with a hexagon-based grid instead of just squares. Somehow, the games just work, despite the lame title and unholy mixture of gameplay elements. The DS version is likely your best bet, as this is at heart a portable game.

Ride the Powder with Stoked

Stoked for the Xbox 360 adds yet another game to the surprisingly crowded snowboarding genre. But, if you (like me) didn't enjoy the other recent snowboarding game's constant Shaun White-ness, then you're in luck. Stoked gives players two basic styles of play to work from, as you are given the choice of either pulling off lots of little tricks (hucker) or just a couple of big ones (stylish). Also, this game has a computer-generated real weather system for each mountain-level, with snow and rain, etc. having real effects on the gameplay and presentation. Really interesting stuff.


Now on DS, the Champion of Casual Games

Peggle is the current champion of casual games from PopCap, and now it is coming to the Nintendo DS. Players shoot a small ball into a large network of pegs, usually with a specific set of them that you must hit. Because your ball bounces away from each peg it hits, it can seem as though the player doesn't have much say in how he does at the game, but a real Peggle champion may just sit looking at the screen for minutes before finally resolving where he should shoot. There's a lot of strategy to it already, but the second screen on the DS just makes things more interesting. If you haven't played the PC version, you'll be stunned by how fun such a simple game can be.

    This is a topic about developers The only reason I wanted to post this is because I wanted to tell people that I am creating a game called Legacy Of Swords and a book called Legacy Of Swords, this will probably be for developers to chat and ask about things, as there is no separate chat rooms.
