Review by Animal Crossing Dude
"Pokemon Haters and Pokemon Lovers can both enjoy this game!"
Wow. This game is great. If you are a Pokemon Fan you will love this game. If you are a Pokemon Hater you will love this game. That's one of the best parts of Pokemon Puzzle Challenge.
Playing this game is filled with fun and exciting moments. All you do is move blocks around and try to get 3 or more in a row together. It may sound boring, but it is extremely addicting! There is several modes to play in. They are Marathon, Challenge, LineClear, Puzzle, and Garbage. In Marathon, you play until your stack of blocks hits the top of the screen. In Challenge mode you battle Gym Leaders and some other opponents. In LineClear, you get rid of all of the blocks above a line. In Puzzle, you must get rid of all of the blocks with only a certain number of moves. And finally, in Garbage! you play as in Marathon, but garbage blocks also fall. With all of the modes, it is very fun to play.
The beginning scene shows several Pokemon moving around and running. They look quite nice. The Graphics in this game look like slightly improved from Pokemon Gold and Silver. When the Pokemon move, the look quite nice.The blocks are colored squares with shapes in the middle. The also look good. Overall the Graphics are not the best, but they are good.
The sound is exactly what you would expect; It sounds very Pokemon-ish. The music in Challenge mode is appropriate for the battle. It sounds like an altered version of the city's music in Pokemon Gold or Silver. The sound is good overall, and not repetitive.
Replay Value- 10/10
With all of the modes, this game has a TON of replay value! Every time you battle, it is different and the battles do not feel the same. You could easily spend a very long time playing this game.
The excellent gameplay, good graphics and sound, and all of the replay value make this a great game. You should buy this game, even if you kind of like Pokemon or Puzzle games. It seems that Puzzle-ichu was a good idea!
