Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords is a brand new, genre-bending title that ups the ante on traditional puzzle games by incorporating strategy, role-playing elements and a persistent storyline.

Set in the Warlords universe, the game challenges players to save the land of Etheria from evil Lord Bane as gamers engage in battles fought by means of competitive, head-to-head "match-three" style puzzle games in one of three gameplay modes: Single-player, Instant Action or Multiplayer. Victory will advance a player's customisable hero, magical arsenal, creature companions and more - ultimately rewarding gamers at nearly every turn and deepening their immersion into the richly diverse world. The game's remarkable mix of classic puzzle gameplay and an abundant suite of characters, customisations, spells, companions, tameable monsters and more provides a fresh take on the puzzle genre that offers endless hours of replayability.

Designed specifically for handheld gaming systems, Puzzle Quest can be enjoyed in long or short doses, cultivating a casual but deeply satisfying and compelling gameplay experience.

Innovative Gameplay Style: Strategy and role-playing elements that function harmoniously in the puzzle gameboard setting offer a refreshing twist on classic puzzle gameplay, fostering an exceptional depth of investment and enjoyment.

Head-to-Head Gameplay Mechanism: Competitive, turn-based gameplay encourages you to plan, think and strategize against opponents instead of just react like most traditional puzzle games - game difficulty and progression are related to outsmarting your enemies as opposed to difficulty increasing solely through level progression.

    No Penalty For Losing: If you experience defeat, you are still awarded experience points as well as partial gold and then encouraged to try again - this allows constant progression and avoids any feelings that invested play time is wasted.

      Continuous Reward System: At every turn, you will acquire helpful companions, collect or cast powerful magic spells, gather informational "rumours," and obtain items like weapons, armour and money to advance your hero.

        Short or Long-term Play Sessions: Play in long or short doses since the depth of the game does not waver according to the length of a gameplay session - each battle ranges from 3-10 minutes.

          Create and Build a Hero: Choose from two male and two female avatars in each of the four character classes - Druid, Knight, Warrior and Wizard - to create, develop and customise your ultimate hero.

            Build Your Own Empire: Build an empire as you capture cities, build castles and gain a party of companions that will aid you in battle.

              Single-player: Battle against the computer AI as you embark on more than 150 challenging quests.

                Instant Action: Jump in and immediately play continuous battles to level up your character without participating in quests.

                  Multiplayer: Battle live opponents via wireless connectivity.

                   Great Game but flawed psp conversion

                  I like puzzle games and RPGs are my favourite genre as well. If you are the same then I can't recommend this game enough.
                  Even if you aren't a fan of one of the genres, this could be the game to convert you!!

                  I won't go too much into the game mechanics, as the descriptions on Play.com are already very good.

                  I will say, its one of the few games available for the PSP that I've been able to spend hour long sessions playing without even realising the time has gone by.

                  Combining puzzles with RPG elements is a stroke of genius and its difficult to think of a similar game that does it to such a high standard.

                  I also believe the game offers tremendous replay value. The 4 different character classes play very differently so, despite offering the exact same set of quests, it doesn't seem a chore to play through again.

                  Finally I will add that the presentation of this game is also good and compliments the excellent game-play.

                  As you can probably tell, I really enjoyed this game.

                  However, I do believe there are problems with the PSP version: -
                  1) The graphics are good but there is occasional, very minor slow down when obtaining long chains or launching some of the more powerful spells.

                  2) During the various quests you can obtain support characters that are meant to influence how the puzzle battles play out. For example one of your recruits should damage Undead characters before the start of a fight. However, they don't work. I have played through the quest 2 times now and have yet to see a support characters skill work.

                  3) Finally I will mention the most noticeable flaw. During both of my playthroughs, (and I will play again), the game has stopped allowing me to access the best spells. Let me explain..
                  As you level up you gain access to more powerful spells of which you can select 6 to take into battle with you. On top of this you can also capture enemies and eventually use their spells too.
                  Unfortunately this is where the game breaks, and it seems to be a problem with the PSP version. Both of my characters have broken so will only show the first 7-8 spells. Each time I try and scroll down further the game freezes and I have to restart my PSP.
                  Various forums I have been to suggest making regular back ups of your characters in case this happens.

                  Now none of these problems make the game unplayable but it feels like PSP owners are being made to miss out on the complete game. In my opinion these issues should have been picked up prior to the game being released and it has left me quite disappointed.

                  I would hope that a patch will be released to fix this issue, but I doubt it ever will. I guess I'll just hope they do a better job on the PSP version Puzzle Quest 2....?

                   Just try it!

                  I'm not a huge fan of puzzle games nor RPGs but heard an excellent view of this and therefore I bought it. This game has suprised me no end, it is wonderfully presented, with varied and interesting gameplay. It is addictive and really hard to put down once you start. Give it a go - you will not regret it.
