5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's more like it!!!! May 10, 2009

Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After having been really disappointed by Galactrix, I was seriously hoping that this version would be a big improvement, and it is!

This game is an offshoot of Challenge of the uses the same empire map and gives you a chance to conquer all of the kingdoms while solving the main quest. The towns and locations are the same, and you find some familiar friends along the way...remember Drong??

Movement is MUCH faster between the villages and kingdoms. The game determines where you must go and when, but the puzzles are awesome!

Battles and mini-games are completed by matching colored tiles of three or more. You will slide the colored symbols along the edges to help make matches, which just have to be next to each other and not in a row or column. This has proven to be a good system and doesn't seem so grossly weighted in favor of the CPU as most other puzzle board games. Yeah, you have a fighting chance!

You are the "King" of your armies, and are given Heroes under your command. Your heroes level up individually, so you never get upset that you have maxed out your leveling options.

After having conquered all of the small castles within a kingdom, you are then able to play mini-game puzzles at the taverns or crypts, for which you pay gold and are rewarded with new spells, relics of power, and troops....which are warriors under the command of your heros.

You get to customize all kingdoms you conquer with your best heroes, troops, spells and relics. This is great because each kingdom has new and ever more difficult foes to defeat. You can use any of these kingdoms as your base to attack the next kingdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than Puzzle Quest May 12, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the previous reviewer, I was disappointed in the developer's previous game, Galactrix. Puzzle Kingdoms makes up for Galactrix and now seems even better than Puzzle Quest!

Like Puzzle Quest, you need to put three or more similarly-colored blocks together to clear them and gain power. Unlike Puzzle Quest, the blocks no longer have to be in a row or column. Furthermore, you aren't forced to make a match. If it suits you better to move certain blocks around to make it harder for your opponent to make a good move, you can do so. Also, instead of just switching the positions of two blocks, you now shift entire rows or columns, so you have to give more thought to what you will be allowing your opponent to do. Lastly, you can see all of the blocks that might be added when shifting rows or columns, so you have to factor that information into your final decision for your move. These differences add a huge amount of strategic pleasure to the basic color-matching system.

If that wasn't enough strategy, you can build armies out of various units. Your goal is to wipe out your opponent's units. Each unit has certain color requirements in order to attack, an attack value, and a number of hit points. A unit can attack as soon as its color requirements are met. However, you might want to delay an attack until you have more powered-up units, because a coordinated attack gets additional damage bonuses.

For example, an axeman has a base attack value of 2 and 3 base hit points, and he requires three white power to attack. An imp has a base attack value of 1 and only 2 base hit points, but requires only two blue power to attack, and a goblin has the same attack and HP, but requires only two red power to attack.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and Puzzle Quest: Galactrix all the way through, this game is more fun, addicting, and creative than the other two combined.

Learning to play the game takes a bit of getting used to, as you control the gems from the edges (which move entire rows) rather than moving the individual gems. This is a refreshing and smart change from the conventional match 3 gem game.

General gameplay: You go through kingdoms and battle the kings and villages to take over their kingdom. You then command the kingdom with the king you just defeated. You can then recruit new troops by solving puzzles (by clearing a certain amount of gems in a time limit). You can also discover new spells in newly defeated kingdoms (by clearing gems in a limited number of moves). To compare to hacking galaxies in Galactrix, the time limited puzzles here are actually relaxing!

Sounds: That brings me to the music. You don't usually expect much from the music on the DS, but this game actually has really outstanding music and great medieval sounds that go along with the atmosphere.

Troops: The main portion of the gameplay is battles of course. Your one leader controls troops as you conquer a kingdom. Your troops can die, and you can recruit new ones. You can customize what troops you want. For example, I recruited a Unicorn, Ogre, Knight, and dwarf. Who'd have thought these types would fight together? There are a large number of other possible recruits you can use, up to about 20-30.

Spells & unique items: This is another major aspect of the gameplay during battles. Spells do things like heal, change gem colors, give troops power points, etc.
