Mean Mr. Mustard's short Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review

1) Essential - buy it NOW
2) Recommended - buy it on sale
3) Avoid

Time to complete – 20 hours
Played multiplayer? N/A
Worth revisiting? No, game is long for the sake of being long, turns into a bit of a grind at the end

Best part – Satisfying gem matching gameplay coupled with unique character skills give the battles some nice unexpected twists
Worst part – Having to grind side quests for the end boss zzzZZZzzz

A fun little matching game that adds just a bit of strategy to the seemingly random Bejeweled formula. You face off against a host of monsters using turn-based matching to collect color gems to use powers, to attack, etc. The story is a by-the-numbers fantasy plot that exists to simply move you from battle to battle. I'd recommend this as a great game to casually play while watching a stream.

Really great game, but suddenly last year they dropped controller support for it. I have no clue why they dropped it as it was working perfectly for it. I'd be extremely happy if they reenabled controller support.

If you're serious about your match 3 and like crunchy RPG mechanics, Puzzle Quest is for you! A massive, sprawling campaign with an abundance of interesting and still surprisingly innovative approaches to the genre await. It's a deep rabbit hole that marries two time-destroying genres with significant success, so don't be surprised if it ends up dragging you away from your current playlist for a good solid week or 3 once you fire it up for the first time.

One of the best games ever created. Pretty sure it was crafted by gods, and handed down through history until we developed the technology to use it.

Can't be set to 1080p, but its visuals have aged well and its great for jumping in and out of when you have some spare time.

I can also attest to its appeal among children 8 - 17 years old. Hours and hours of them staring at a screen, not talking, and not fighting. The next best thing to my idea of putting teenagers on islands, away from real human beings until they come of age. Like study camps. Camps where they can concentrate. Haven't really thought of a name for them.

In the beginning, the game feels like a rather fresh and interesting take on a simple puzzle game, inserting RPG systems and a story into it. You might have fun with that. But then it keeps going.
And going.
And going.

Then the game tells you to collect a dozen mcGuffins to progress further in its story, probably getting a laugh out of you because you think the developers are joking, and a character will reveal that they've already collected most of them.

They are not. And they won't.
Even if you decide to play this game, drop it and don't force yourself to finish it once it becomes repetitive.

This game is great. One of my favorite of the Match-3 genre. Has a storyline and RPG mechanics. Best of all of the PuzzleQuest series. I have a lot more hours than shown on Steam, I have also completed the game on PSP.
Be sure to install the FREE Expansion pack (even before your first playthrough if you are new) to get more areas and characters for your game. (Info and d/l here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/12500/discussions/0/864943954172103438/ )

Much like Final Fantasy, they keep trying to remake PuzzleQuest, but they just cant make a better puzzle game. This is the Bejeweled version of D&D (Baldur's Gate) with a Final Fantasy Tactics inspired storyline (FFT was the best FF related game you didnt play other than Ehrgeiz ;). My second time buying this game and sixth time playing it through. (A+) 10/10 Killed Lord Bane in three moves, WOULD CRUSH DEMI-GODS AGAIN.

Ironiocly the fact that PuzzleQuest: Warlords is almost abandoned is a good thing. It isn't greedware spamming, intentionally trying to get you addicted or advertising anything. Its a relaxing casual game that will both challange and fustrate you in all the right ways. You can play this game for six months on one character campaign, and you still will be willing to play through a second time.

There are six Puzzle games by Infinite Interactive. This is still their best one. There is an X-pac (Revenge of the Plague Lord) currently not available on Steam at the time of this post, but there is a PC mod for it out there somewhere. Firemint now owns PQ so don't expect it to go on sale anytime soon and marval made its own version which is considered the best version since this one, but SCREW THAT GREEDY TEEN-POP NOISE.

This game is a hot bag of crap from beginning to finish. A bejewelled clone that tries to be an RPG but forgets that RPGs are traditionally games of skill and strategy and Bejewelled is a game of chance. There's a reason these two styles of gameplay shouldn't be mixed and that reason is on brilliant display in this game; Because the matches are adversarial, and you play against an enemy AI, it is not only possible but inevitable that the game is going to spend a lot of time punishing you for not having a good move when the game gave you no good moves to make. You're going to lose, a lot, and through no fault of your own.

To add insult to injury, the game cheats. Like, a lot. It's not unusual to have a match where you get two or three moves in and then you're just buried under a chain of like 20-25 enemy free turns. Enemies with little or no spell resistance will resist 5 spells in a row, or resist a spell that uses fire and earth mana with air resistance. Enemy items and spells have bonuses written by people who don't understand how math scales. The AI always behaves as though it has perfect knowledge of all moves on the board and perfect knowledge of all gems that will fall as a result of those moves, whether you're fighting a level 1 rat at the beginning of the game or the big boss.

The only way to enjoy this game was to trivialize it. To grind gold and farm skills until I could generate damage so easily it almost didn't matter that the game could seemingly win matches at will. Even with a highly optimized wizard with rediculous stats and a meticulous battle strategy, I still managed to only win about 70% of fights. Otherwise you're in for 300-400+ boards of head-banging frustration.

If you like casual puzzle games like Bejewelled, you're probably going to be much happier finding a pure puzzle game instead of this hybridized pile of misery.

Nice idea, this could have been a great game.
However, you have quickly seen everything the game has to offer and each new puzzle looks more and more like the previous one. At a certain point, cheer luck is your best ally: you only need to play again and again until you beat your opponent.
The fantasy story used as a reason for the game also could have been more untertaining; here their are no grasping stakes. The illustrations are like the universe: nice but quite cliché.
Overall, a disappointing experience.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I've bought and started playing this game like 3-4 years ago and then abandoned it until recently. It was something new and fresh in the field of "match 3 gems" games. It had story, fantasy background, skills, spells. And then it got even overwhelming. Too many stuff to know, handle. Too many side quests, too many spells, skills, items, town management, mounts, followers, etc. Yeah, you didn't have to do all, but if you wanted to be good and fight even more powerful foes, you had to improve on all fields. So i've got tired and didn't want to launch it again. Even more annoying thing was, that while traveling through a huge map of a world you didn't only had to confront creatures tied to the quests, but on those paths between towns and towers there were same creatures and they were constantly randomly respawning. So if you wanted to go across the map to solve some quest, you had to fight them over and over again and then on your way back.. It became boring and frustrating very fast.

But after completing Gyromancer and not liking it much i've decided to give this another try and finish a story. So i did. Though the last boss was haaaard. And i had to go to the map and grind for more experience, doing every side quest i could and improving skills, getting better items, etc. And finally i've beat him!

The story was fine. Mechanics are interesting. So i give it a Yes, but i won't be getting back to it, and i hear that sequel is even more boredom and grinding without a decent story, so i'll probably pass.

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.

The puzzle part of this game takes place during battle, where you'll spend most of your time. Otherwise you're on an overworld map picking up quests and traveling to different locations.

Heavy on the RPG elements -- levels, stats, equipment, spells, mounts, quests, upgradeable castles and dozens of different enemies to fight and capture. It can become a little bit repetitive but the difficulty seems just right and there's a setting for timed or untimed turns depending on your skill level. Soundtrack and story are mediocre, graphics are alright, but it's a fun game packing a lot of hours.

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.)
