Puzzle

Archer Maclean's Mercury – Review

In essence, as with the familiar single-screen action of Lumines and Meteos, Awesome Studios' contribution to this new wave could be accused of conservatism. Core gameplay involves completing maze-based goals by safely guiding a globule of mercury up ramps, around nerve-jangling precipices, along conveyor belts, over bridges, through cog systems, across precarious platforms, etc., and all within a time limit.

Archer Maclean's Mercury

Game Description: In Archer Maclean's Mercury you'll watch as liquid metal blobs ebb and flow around the countless challenges you'll encounter. Guide various colored mercury droplets around each 3D maze simply by 'tilting' the level. Negotiate obstacles and hazards, solve puzzles, compete against ever tightening time and percentage limits, whilst avoiding all the traps and predators. Make it to the last levels and you'll bosses who'll push your puzzle-solving abilities to their limits.

Myst III: Exile – Review

Myst III: Exile is a fine example of conceptual stagnation, an often mind-numbing exercise in tedium that despite grand intentions, feels more like a relic than a new and interesting concept.

Syberia II – Review

The tone and poise of its plain and sincere story are far enough removed from typical videogame fare to warrant valuing it among the few point 'n click adventures that have made it onto the current generation of consoles.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong – Second Opinion

This game pits the mustachioed Italian plumber against his original nemesis, Donkey Kong. Unlike Andrew, I didn't play the original Donkey Kong '94 . But I knew about it, and I was anxious to play this updated title, knowing it to be a mix of puzzle-solving and classic platforming.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong – Review

As in DK '94, a set of oh-so-simple moves and rules combine with such coherency and common sense that the emphasis is placed almost entirely on the quality, variety and ingenuity of the first-rate level design.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

Game Description: When Mario decides to open a toy factory, his old enemy Donkey Kong shows up on the scene to sabotage the business. The old grudge has started up again—help Mario pursue Donkey Kong and retrieve the stolen toys, while avoiding the dangers of a factory!
