Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords is an addicting puzzle game with an added roleplaying element. The title was developed by Infinite Interactive and published by Namco Networks America. Anyone who has played Tetris, Bejewelled or any similiar game will be quite familiar with the puzzle portion of this fantastic title but for me, as a heavy R.P.G. fan, it was this part of the game that really makes it stand apart from the others in the genre. As in the start of a typical roleplaying game you select your character and class before the terrific story sends you traveling across a vast fantasy world in search of quests, battles and loot. I found the story to be extremely compelling and at times humorous. It definitely keeps your attention and makes you want to wander about and converse with any person or beast that would cross your path. The combat, of course, takes place in puzzle format and tasks you with matching pairs of colored gems, skulls and other items while casting spells as well as a variety of other attacks and moves against your opponent. As you battle you earn experience points which you can spend upgrading your skills as well as accquiring gold and loot with which you can better outfit your character. You also have the option to capture opponents and hold them in your dungeon. You can then learn new spells and combat tactics from your prisoners as well as use the captured beasts as mounts as you traverse the world. The game is presented very well with a combination of fantastic hand drawn manga-like art for the cut scenes as well as an old school top down "Legend Of Zelda" like world map. Shockingly one of the best parts of the game in my opinion is the music. I can't stress how great the soundtrack is in this title as it expertly captures the fantasy theme of the game. I fell in love with it after just a few days of playing the title. The sound effects during the puzzle battles are terrific as well. You never get tired of hearing the explosions, coin drops and other tell-tale effects when you successfully connect a line of gems and cause a cascade that devastates your opponent bringing them to their knees in defeat...absolutely priceless. I never thought I would be a fan of puzzle games but the Puzzle Quest series has, no pun intended, cast a spell on me. Highly Recommended!!! I think I like this one better than Puzzle Quest 2 which I adore.

A great mix of Match-3 and RPG. Easy to learn and full of content: there are stats to raise, items to manage, spells to research, weapons to craft, mounts to capture, etc, etc. Played it a lot when it originally came out.

A true classic game that has never really been improved upon though many games have tried. A very good blending of genre. Its getting pretty old but holds up to the test of time very well do to the solid gameplay and mechanics. A 10/10

A truly addicting and stimulating game that sucks you in the moment you start playing. Good RPG elements with an interesting story, giving the player the opportunity to choose whether to be "good" or less so. My only complaint is that the expansion pack isn't available for the PC version, withholding 4 additional classes (available on the PS3. Yes, I have this game on multiple platforms, it's THAT good.)

I was planning to do stuff this weekend, but apparently I played 22 hours of Puzzle Quest in two days.

...okay okay fine, I'll write about the actual game.

There are 4 classes, each have their different set of default spells, and you learn spells as you level up. This is an RPG after all, albeit a linear one - with quite a lot of sidequests and the main quest is lengthy, my game play time at the moment is pretty much an indicator of a single playthrough, which was ~36 hours.

So what's the quirk of this game? The battle system. The battle system is based on Bejeweled, and as you match pieces, you get mana, gold, exp or deal direct damage. With mana, you can cast spells. And if you put 4 in a row or stun the enemy or the like, you can get extra turns and it can get quite crazy if you have a Frozen Rod, have 1% chance of stun for each of your blue mana (so with 41 blue mana you have 41% chance of stun on every instance of dealing damage), and some other stuff. As you can tell, there are items that manipulate the gameplay on both your side and the enemy's.

You can also capture monsters and use them as a mount (and gain an extra stat based on their level and get an extra skill to use in combat), or you can research their spells. You can also craft your own items with runes you can collect. Each of these uses a system that is a variation on the base battle system.

VERDICT: If you like strategic gameplay and you're oddly addicted to Match-3 puzzle games, and enjoy a decent (even if not the most unique nor the most complicated) story, and decent music, then this is definitely a good game. It really depends on whether you enjoy the combat or not: because you'll do a LOT of it in this game. But hey, I enjoyed it.

You like bejeweled? That's it, with a story, and a grinding approach. But MAN is it long! Never reached the end so far, after tens of hours! I wonder when I will start the second one... It is a nice little game, nothing more. Smartphone game like. Do recommend.

If you like Bejeweled this game is a must have for you.
The difference to a normal Bejeweled game:

- Cast spells
- Level system and choose where to put your skillpoints
- Get companions
- Earn money to get new gear or upgrade your citadel to get benefits in and out of combat
- Fight against monsters and tame/collect mounts
- 2 Player VS mode

So yeah its pretty fun and worth the price.

Simple game with a simple premise, line up the gems (Think Bejeweled) However it adds a whole new twist through an RPG element introducing a new level of strategy. (Do you line up skulls to do damage, or certain colors to get the mana you need, or to deny your opponent the mana they need?) Didn't look like it would be fun, but its amazingly addictive and provided me far more hours of entertainment than I would have anticipated.

Great little game. I originally played it on the Nintendo DS, and it was so good I bought it for PC.
It is best played on a touchscreen.

Best one of the series. Avoid all the other versions, as they are HELLA boring!

BEST bejewled-style game I've ever played!

I played this game for months on my PSP back in the day. I could be mistaken, but I believe this is the game that was the catalyst to the creation of so many puzzle-rpg hybrid games.

It does a great job in tuning out the monotony of a Bejewled game by adding in rpg elements. Each gem color signifies mana, which are used to cast skills, which you learn as your character gains levels and completes side-quest puzzles. Each match is a battle against an enemy that you encounter on your quest. Your character traverses a map that is similar to the world map in Final Fantasy Tactics. Certain locations on the map can be captured as your territory, and then upgraded to provide you with gold revenue and other benefits. Items can also be found and bought for your character to grant additional perks.

To compare this to other bejeweled games, such as: Puzzle Quest 2, Legend of Fae, Bejeweled 3, Marvel Puzzle Quest...
I enjoyed this game the most.

It's basically Bejeweled with RPG elements thrown in. Every colored set of gems is for a different element, and you have to spend these element points to cast spells to damage the enemy. Otherwise you can match 3 skulls and damage the enemy directly.

Winning a combat round gives you experience towards your next level which in turn grants you access to new spells, and gives you some skill points to distribute towards making certain elements more powerful, or to give you an overall boost in the game. You also have equipment that adds certain effects such as reducing the amount of damage you take, increasing the damage you can do, or even reducing a certain element from your enemy when you fulfill certain conditions.

In a way the game reminds me a lot of "Gyromancer" except you do the matches directly instead of doing the "bejeweled twist" style matches. The only thing not "bejeweled" about this game is that there are no special exploding gems created for doing complex matches. You do get a free turn if you match 4 in a row, and if you match 5 in a row you get a free turn + a wildcard piece added to the board.

There's also some gold pieces to match for more money, and "purple stars" for experience. In addition, certain stats increase the likelihood of these non-element matches giving you a free turn, so sometimes it's worth giving it a shot even if you'd rather be collecting the elemental pieces (red, green, blue, and yellow).

The music is decent, the graphics are kinda flat but it does the job, and the story is.... there. I mean, so far it hasn't added that much extra to the game but it's not cheezy either. If you're a fan of Bejeweled and puzzle games it's worth checking out. If you're dying for some real action or deep strategy, you should probably look elsewhere though.
