| ||Puzzle Games || |
| ||Computer puzzle game is a
genre of computer games
that emphasize puzzle solving.
The types of puzzles involved can involve logic games, strategy, pattern recognition,
sequence solving games, word completion,
color matching games
or, in some cases, just pure luck. |
Before there ever were video games
(as we would recognise them) there were jigsaw puzzles and the Rubik's Cube, today's
puzzle game forefathers. The genre can be difficult to describe: the gameplay is
usually abstract (but not always) often involving arranging geometric shapes to fulfill
some goal or constraint. Often edge matching or
colour matching plays an important role.
Puzzle games usually strive to have a pick-up-and-play accessibility to them and to
have an addictive quality.
Puzzle games are relatively easy to develop and to take from dedicated arcade units,
to home video game consoles, to personal digital assistants and mobile phones.
Tetris is widely regarded as the pinnacle of this genre, despite not having any real
advertising nor a cute character to garner attention. Solitaire and Minesweeper are
worth mentioning because of the huge installed user base.
Mystery Studio offers FaceIt, an
original color matching game, and
PegSweeper, for lovers of though logic puzzles.
