Trivia

1001 Video Games

Puzzle Quest appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

PC Version

Because there initially was a Windows demo, but no full PC game released along with the other platforms, Steve Fawkner (CEO of developer Infinite Interactive) received at least six death threats and one bomb threat from fans demanding a PC version of the game.

References

The game contains a Frost Giant named Jarl. This a reference to the Frost Giant Jarl from the old AD&D module G2: The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl.
