  1. 1. Which action/puzzle game should I play?



Recommended Posts

After finally beating Crystal Mines II I need another puzzle game on my to beat list. Crystal Mines II was that game for probably over a decade since I beat Chip's Challenge. The pure puzzle games Klax and Blockout are not included.

 

I have tried Super Skweek once or twice but have never been able to get very far. I might not have even been able to beat the first level.

 

My experience with Dinolympics is maybe five minutes of play time after I got a couple of years ago. I do love Evolution: Dino Dudes on the Jaguar though.

 

I have played Lemmings a couple of times. I finish the first level every time, but I am not sure I ever made it to the third level.

 

I am not sure I will tackle one of these games next, but I like to have a Lynx puzzle game on my list to play and I will get to one sooner or later. I have no idea how many levels Super Skweek has, but I know Dinolympics has 25. On the Jaguar version the difficulty level only changed the time limit, is it the same here?  I cannot tell if Lemmings has 30 levels or 120 levels. It looks like each difficulty level has 30 levels, but I do not know if they are repeats.

 

So which game should I play next?

Lemmings is definitely my nr 1. You can freeze the game with "pause" and look around. This changes the hectic "click at the right second" to a puzzle solving game.

Dinolympics for me but I do need to replay it. I can remember completing it when it first came out. Very clever puzzles and entertaining gameplay.

Each difficulty setting in Lemmings represents a different set of levels.

 

i voted Dinolympics, but caveman-related games are my thing lately :)

Have you considered Xump or Xump 2?

If you want to send me a copy of one of them, or both, then I will add them to the list.

Songbird released Xump (1) on cart and on evercade, but both Xump ad Xump2 can be played online on atarigamer, or downloaded from Retroguru site, Retroguru Itch.io page, Atarigamer site:

Xump2 is the competition rom (it has all levels, but misses some tunes and a lot of eye candies). It will be updated soon, final version is under pre relase testing.

I play on real hardware only. I will one day grab a copy of Xump and the sequel if it gets a physical release.

Lemmings is definitely my pick out of those three. It's one of my favourite games on the Lynx and it's aged beautifully. But don't overlook Loopz, which is excellent as well.
