Title: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cruithne on April 08, 2007, 08:10:13 pm
Puzzlequest is the devil, it is crack and heroin, it hooks you in, you hate yourself but you can't let it go. I don't even like the game anymore, but I can't stop playing it, and it cheats, I swear to you, it cheats.
Hate Puzzlequest, hate it, but i can't let it go..... :'(

What is puzzlequest?
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cruithne on April 08, 2007, 08:39:31 pm
It is the Devil, Satan, Beelzebub, come on earth and taken the form of a seemingly harmless little game, bejeweled style puzzler/RPG hybrid.
But, it cheats, the game cheats. you try to beat it, but it cheats, and you can't, but you keep trying, but you can't, but you can't stop trying, so you keep trying, but you can't win.
And in the background I can hear the echoing laughter,all the way from the very pits of hell, as the evil one mocks my attempts to kill that giant rat.

It seems to be Final Fantasy meets Bejeweled (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puzzle_Quest:_Challenge_of_the_Warlords)... on the PSP... Yeah, I'm not too sure myself.

OK, I think that we can conclude that Cruithne really hates Puzzlequest

Why don't you just stop playing?  Break the cartridge or something...

I'm really, really tempted to pick this up. Does it have multiplayer of any kind?
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cruithne on April 09, 2007, 03:34:11 pm
Yes it does, and it is just about a perfect multiplayer game.

If it had Wi-fi, I'd never get out of bed again.

Something strange happened to me today. I was playing Puzzlequest, and I started to win. Suddenly I could see moves and cut the AI off before it made them. I was gathering up mana and casting offensive spells that wiped the smile of the computers face.

I like this game.

Go buy it, now.

Post by: Cruithne on April 09, 2007, 06:42:27 pm
I'm playing it on the DS, been so busy with the single payer i hadn't checked out the Wi fi.

That is interesting.

I expect to see this in about 2 years in Australia.

@Cobra: You can download a free demo for PC here (http://www.gamedaily.com/canvases/gd/_a/download-puzzle-quest-demo/20070315101009990002).

Doesn't seem is great if i can't play it on my train although i might give it a look at home anyway if I like it I'll buy it.

hmmm, the demo isnt bad. You're right about the computer cheating though.  :P

Things were going just fine until I bumped into that goddamn bat. Now I've uninstalled it and I'm not going to touch it again.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Krakow Sam on April 11, 2007, 08:48:31 am
Hmmm. Its ok, but too repetitive for my liking. Even the minigames at the citadel are just variations on the same theme.

Yeah I found it a bit odd that the computer manaed to get something like 5 five-in-a-row combos from purely random drops at the start. I mean the odds must be something mind buggeringly high.

Thanks for the link.  I'd heard about this and wanted to try it out.

For a puzzle game, it seems to have a lot of depth but, i'll agree it gets repetative quickly.  Regardless of all the additions it seems to be simple connect 4 (actually, 3) with stats...

Oh it's so much much more.

Believe me, this game is crying out for a  Wii console two player makeover.

I was FINALLY able to find Puzzle Quest and I see what everyone is talking about!

It's like Bejeweled on CRACK!
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cruithne on May 06, 2007, 06:56:49 pm
I'm up to level 30 now and the game is levelling out. I no longer think the AI cheats, it just sees combos very quickly.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: PatMan33 on January 02, 2008, 02:13:08 pm
Well this game is infuriating, the extent to which the AI cheats is ridiculous.

And now I have a reason to finally buy a DS Lite because I smashed the top screen with my stylus.

See?

Just for laughs I'm going to see if Nintendo will replace it again.

you know this is a pretty fun game but its not adicting or whatever...definatly not the best game on the ds...but its worth the money
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cobra on January 07, 2008, 04:56:32 am
I actually ordered this game like a week ago just after xmas should be here in about 2 more weeks ordered it from a Canadain site same place I got pokemon from. Now chance of finding it in Australia plus it's still cheaper to do it this way.

The game came in the mail today and I'm already addicted. It does seem like ti cheats sometimes but once you get some decent spells it makes things much easier.

I've been playing this game again. I think I'm almost at the end... my character is level fifty and I have most of the best armor and stuff. With any luck I'll be able to finish it soon, I'm seeing puzzle boards when I close my eyes.

Did they replace your busted DS for free?
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: PatMan33 on June 23, 2008, 05:44:15 pm
I used it as an excuse to get a DS Lite. The old DS still works fine... if the screen becomes an annoyance I'll replace it myself.

Post by: Cobra on June 23, 2008, 07:06:20 pm
Once you get tot he end game the game becomes so easy, witht he right combination of spells you can beat pretty much everyone before they even get a turn simply by casting spells that destroy gems which sets off some enchanted armor that recharges mana which in turn does damge to opponent which destroys more gems and so on causing a never ending chain reaction that wins you the battle.

My only weakness on my played character was only moderate speed so if a fast enough opponent got the 1st turn and had the right combination of spells they could get me, fortunelty none of the computer opponents are this good. If you get stuck just use the forge you can make some insane items.

I've got a knight and the only spells I use are stun and divine right. And that death gaze if I have enough power. Otherwise it's all direct damage.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cobra on June 23, 2008, 07:12:59 pm
It's been a while since I played so I don't remember the names of all the spells I had but I actually became overpowered that I dont use most of my instant win sets until I finished the story as it just because it was no challange otherwise.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: PatMan33 on June 23, 2008, 07:16:56 pm
Stun takes five HP away from an enemy and causes them to lose a turn. Diving right allows my character to collect every star on the board.

Post by: Cobra on June 23, 2008, 07:41:33 pm
The only ones i can remember were burn which turns green into red (which mean I used a lot of red spells). I had a spell which turns red gems into skulls, Also one which Does a point of damage for every skull on field so used all 3 spells together was deadly. Add the fact I had high stength I was doing insane amounts of damage.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: PatMan33 on June 23, 2008, 07:42:32 pm
The death gaze is a cool spell. It takes away half of your opponent's HP.
Title: Re: Puzzlequest is the devil!
Post by: Cobra on June 23, 2008, 07:45:57 pm
I think I had the troll regeneration spell as well sort of an outlet for my blue mana I think I had a spell for yellow damage which about rounded out what I used for most of the story.
