Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords drought is over

I heard that some people have had a hard time finding copies of Puzzle Quest in stores and if you’ve been one of the people trying to hunt down a copy some good news appeared in my e-mail box that I want to share with you.

 

Just writing you with a quick note about a game of which I know you were quite a fan—D3 Publisher’s Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the DS and PSP.

 

After it first came out and became a surprise hit, there were some rumblings about the game being tough to locate on store shelves.  I just thought you (and your readers) might want the unofficial insider’s heads-up from me that, in North America, that should no longer be a problem.  There should be plenty of copies of the game available now for anyone with a Puzzle Quest craving.

 

I’m glad Puzzle Quest got a reprint, since copies were beginning to sell over retail value on eBay. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords really is one of the better original titles and a reprint might elevate it above “sleeper hit” status.

    Finally found it at EB and picked it up, except I can’t stop playing it, and it’s ruining my life.

    That’s certainly good news Puzzle Quest has received a reprint, the more people that get the chance to play it the better. This game deserves good sales, and the way it’s leaving shelves at a alarmingly fast rate that may very well happen.

    I’m also one of many out there who have played Puzzle Quest and can’t seem to put the game down. It’s just that addictive, once given a play through you’re pulled in by the title’s charm of being able to play for only 15 minutes yet still feel as if a lot was accomplished in such a short amount of time. Even when short on time this is still a good title to simply pick up and play whenever you get the craving to get a quick gaming fix, and after those quick 15 minutes are up you’ll still want to play more of it. This is exactly the kind of title the Nintendo DS was designed for.

    If another shortage were to occur again in the near future, there’s also the XBLA version of Puzzle Quest to look forward to. Bringing distribution to more platforms will only strengthen the game’s appeal and bring about a larger userbase, who in the process end up getting addicted, which can only be a good thing.

    Better yet, for those 360 owners who may lack a DS at this current place and time, but have heard all the fuss about Puzzle Quest and want to try it out for themselves will be able to give the game a opportunity to get them hooked.
