Puzzle Quest: Galactrix - Preview @ UGO

UGO Gamesblog  has put up a preview of the upcoming space-themed sequel to Infinite Interactive's Puzzle Quest:Challenge of the Warlords, PQ:Galactrix:

  There are two types of gamers in this world.  Those who are straight addicted to Infinite Interactive’s Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and those who have never played it.  In a mash-up for the ages, Challenge of the Warlords couples together the disparate puzzle and RPG genres for one of the most ludicrously addictive games available.  Showing no regard for the personal lives of their fans, Infinite and D3 publisher are well on their way to releasing the next RPG/puzzler timesuck in the Puzzle Quest series, this one bearing the subtitle Galactrix...

The key difference is the layout.  In Challenge, the playing field was a Tetris-style rectangle, with blocks being swappable in left-right and up-down directions.  Empty spaces would be filled by blocks falling in at the top of the puzzle area.  Galactrix’s playing field and blocks are instead hexagonal, giving players two new directions to shift tiles in.  More than that, the direction of movement has an added strategic element in allowing players to influence where new tiles will be filled in from.
