FINALLY!!! A Good Pokemon Game For N64!!!

  • Oct 9, 2000
Rating:
+5
Although this is a compleate copy of "Tetris Attack" I found this a game worth playing one the N64! For a while now we've gotten nothing but flunk Pokemon games on the N64 (Pokemon Stadium anyone?), but this game makes up for it! With witty puzzles, two player fun, and no choppy 3D graphics make this a must! I'm still convinced that Pokemon was the only way to get people to buy this game, but who cares? At least it's fun!

Years later, this game is still great. This is my favorite puzzle game (Tetris Attack) and it has the highest replay value of any game I've ever played.

Although the Pokémon aspect ofPokémon Puzzle Leagueis purely thematic--which might disappoint lovers of Pikachu, while still warding off nonfans--the fun and challenging gameplay here makes this title one of the best in the puzzle genre.

Gameplay in Pokémon Puzzle League is a variation on the puzzle classic Tetris: players must clear blocks off the screen by switching adjacent horizontal blocks to create horizontal and vertical lines of three or more identically colored blocks. Blocks rise in rows from the bottom of the screen, and, once they reach the top, the game is over. While it's deceptively easy at first, the steadily increasing speed of the rising blocks requires players to make combos (more than three blocks in a line) and chains (creating multiple lines simultaneously), both of which pause the rise of the blocks temporarily.

Featuring six gaming modes and puzzles in both 2-D and 3-D, Pokémon Puzzle League is best played by one player versus the computer (in the Stadium) or in two-player "versus" mode. In these modes, creating combos and chains causes "garbage" blocks to fall from the top of your opponent's screen, which results in some villainously vindictive gameplay.--Joe Hon

Pros:

  • Fun and challenging Tetris-like game for all ages
  • Outstanding two-player "versus" gameplay
  • 2-D and 3-D puzzles, six gaming modes, and very thorough tutorials
  • "Puzzle University" mode lets players create their own puzzles
Cons:
  • Pokémon aspect of ...
