Puzzle Quest: Galactrix - Preview @ Worthplaying

by Magerette, 2008-03-15 16:24:06

Worthplaying gives a one page preview of Infinitive Interactive's space-themed followup to its puzzle/RPG hybrid Puzzle Quest, Galactrix. Here's an excerpt:

Damage is determined by matching pieces with numbers (1, 3, 5 and 10), and you must deplete your foe's shields before you can damage his hull. It's quite a fully realized battle system, and this isn't simply the race to make the most matches, as you've seen in so many titles that have come before.

The developers also mentioned that there would be diplomacy and commodity systems, though they didn't elaborate on what exact roles they would play. From the sound of things, this is shaping up to be a very complex game, and the actual gameplay may be taking a backseat to strategy and new game elements.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is shaping up to be an ambitious title, expanding on its predecessor's determination to show how gem-swapping puzzle games can be more than what we've become accustomed to...
