Kaotik Puzzle – A face full of AWESOME!

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Okay, okay, apologies if you don’t find match-3 puzzle games awesome.  I just had to put that in the title though because the title is a face full of awesome!  I could have said a fist full of awesome, but a face full seems more in your face, you know because it has face in the title.  Anyway.  Our next review is for said match-3 puzzle on Xbox Live Indie Games game called Kaotik Puzzle from Spanish developer Silvermax (That’s Spanish as in Spain, not the language, although they speak the language in Spain because it’s… well you get the idea).  Anyways if you were to play one match-three or puzzle game in your whole life time, this would be it.  The guy has pulled out all the stops!  Here’s a vid showing you what it’s all about.  I believe it’s probably the same vid that I posted in the preview, but here’s a refresher. 

Also even though it says it’s coming soon, it’s out now, at the Xbox Live Marketplace.  I really dig this game so that might be all you need to know, however if you want to know why please read after the jump.


PREVIEW: Kaotik Puzzle

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Kaotik Puzzle by, I’m not actually sure,  looks like a neat little puzzle matcher for Xbox Live Indie Games is due to come out soon.  I admit this is a little shorter than usual, and I’m sure the author would have provided screen shots except I was supposed to put this up today.  Since it is a preview  I think it’s ok to just show a video of it.  The developer uses the name Silvermax1975 on twitter, and has a facebook page for the game.  There’s supposed to be a lot of variations for the game, but you can see all of that from the trailer.  Apologies to the developer and readers for not doing a more proper preview.  I may get to review it in the near future though.

Name: Kaotik Puzzle

Developer: Silvermax1975

Where you will be able to get it: XBLIG, but here’s an info page.

Bauble Play – Match-3 with an eye-patch!

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

(To the tune of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer) Well you know Zombies, and Vampires, and Werewolves, and Ninjas, Skeletons, Robots, Samurai, and Vikings, but do you recall, the most famous scoundrels of all… PIRATES!  ARRRRGH!  Everyone is into pirates nowadays.  Seriously.  Pirates of the Caribbean, Lego Pirate sets, Puzzle Pirates (Okay I haven’t reviewed it, I haven’t even played it), even real pirates in the news.  Everyone is mad, simply MAD about pirates!  So it’s with great pleasure I present to you a match-3 type game with a piratey theme.  Okay it’s one of those ones where you just click and remove.  Technically this could be considered a preview because it’s in beta.  It’s done in XNA, so I assume eventually it will get to the XBOX.  Anyways, the game is ok.  Not great, nothing to really keep me wanting to play.  If you want to know more please continue to read.  How about a video of the gameplay:
