For what you're paying Puzzlegeddon is a great value and provides gameplay with a surprising amount of depth. The interplay between matching colored blocks and attacking and defending opponents is well done, and the game gives you three difficulty levels worth of bots to practice against online and off. The real test, however, is against humans, something that will likely prove difficult to set up given how few are actually playing online. If you're bored of standard Bejewled match-3 type games and want something well designed that feels quite a bit different, Pieces Interactive's Puzzlegeddon is a solid choice.

Many would say that such games can even be played for free using only the flash application, but this one offers enough (decent graphics, tactical elements and multiplayer mode for up to 6 players), for only $15.

In fact, the central mechanic of sliding blocks gets somewhat lost in the mayhem, and it's tricky to apply much strategic thought to the colours you need to harvest. Despite the vertiginous learning curve, however, Puzzlegeddon's mechanics intersect neatly and offer some depth - even if most early games will descend into manic clicking

While Puzzlegeddon does have problems, most notably when leaving a defeated player with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs for minutes on end, it's an addictive little action puzzler with some genuine strategic depth.

It's difficult to rate such a niche title, as no doubt fans will become addicted, but as those fans will be few and far between I think we can safely assume this one will struggle to achieve anything but mediocre success.

Worth Playing
Puzzlegeddon is a twist or three on a familiar concept, and it tries to make a party game out of a premise that's perhaps not so well-suited to it. At the current price point, it's hard to justify a game that is ultimately so simple and small, even if it can be fairly enjoyable. Pieces Interactive has a good premise here, but ultimately, they didn't make enough out of it to justify the cost.

The core of Puzzlegeddon remains a fun, engaging take on a classic genre with a clever twist - but played against the soulless bots, with no bragging rights or trust in equanimity, there's a limited appeal which probably won't justify the admittedly low price-tag (GBP 10.95 at Direct2Drive). Find a similarly-minded friend, however, and feel free to adjust the score according to your love of competition.

Miało być ciekawie, zaskakująco, kreatywnie i dynamicznie. Wyszło chaotycznie, powtarzalnie, bezmyślnie, a czasem nawet żenująco. Cóż, kolejny nieźle zapowiadający się projekt, który udało się zmarnować.
