I wasn't able to get into Galactrix like the previous Puzzle Quest games. They mixed up the formula and it doesn't have that same addiction factor as before. The gem movement takes some getting used to, but it does lead to more strategic gameplay like being able to prevent certain moves your opponent can make on their next turn. The different systems don't provide any heads up display information so you can't get an idea what is in the system before you visit. And the minimap doesn't even provide system names making it pretty useless. The game also crashes way too much, and each time it does I get discouraged from playing further. Nevertheless, it's still a decent RPG match 3 adventure, just a bit of a disappointment considering the other Puzzle Quest titles were so much better.

Bought this on sale after having spent many hours enjoying Challenge of the Warlords. This game has a familiar Puzzle Quest feel but with a fresh new take on the match 3 mechanic. The game modes are challenging without being frustrating and the story board elements are amusing. The routing system between games can become a little tiresome much like previous Puzzle Quest games but the option to "buy-pass" some of this with your in game "credit" cuts the tedium down. The game has crashed a couple of times but that aside it's been a fun return to a game style I like with plenty of new elements to entertain.

Played on Win8 tablet (i5, HD4000):

This is one of the greatest casual games to play on a tablet. The controls are perfect; there's no way to tell it's a PC game. Nothing staggers unlike most other "probably good to play on a tablet" games. You just click/swipe the diamonds, go through a pretty entertaining (for a casual game) story and don't ever worry about incorrectly read controls or anything else. There're tons of missions, RPG progression and some kind of minigames as well but nothing too complicated, so it's fun to play when you need to pass time.

- Works with touchscreen;
- Doesn't need multitouch;
- Doesn't require a keyboard;
- Runs smoothly.

For a puzzle game, this is suprisingly addictive, after the first hour or so, this get's quite strategical and difficult.

Recommend that you get all the PSI you can, while the hacking and battles are easy. I made the mistake of going for firepower and that is rarely a good thing.

If you do go down the 'RUN AND GUN' method, get better weapons by selling cargo when it is green on the sell menu!

PIcked this up in a sale at 90% off; and yet I struggle to make sense of it. It feels like the computer is cheating all the time. I make a move, match 3,4 or even 5 gems, and if i'm lucky I'll get a chain. The computer will make a move and the gems added to the board conviently creates chain after chain after chain. The AI's moves is like a vegas fruit machine paying out, mine are like rotten fruit. I guess I could just be unlucky, but I suspect some fowl play going on. Oh and it crashed afer 25mins of play, taken steam with it.

I loved PQ-1, a bit more meh about PQ-2 but this is likely to never be played again..
