Years of Puzzle Quest, Candy Crush Saga and Bejeweled have all been preparing me for this moment. Now is my time to dominate. To stand over the battered and broken gems of my enemies in Force of Elements.
Puzzle Quest meets Magic: The Gathering. If any combination of puzzle RPG and other thing could restore my faith in the once-glorious video game franchise, this would be it. It comes pretty close.
And so an eight year love affair with the original puzzle role-playing game franchise ends with a game that should have been the best thing ever but just isn’t.
Coming this summer to a mobile device near you, two lovely things in a colorful free-to-play sandwich.
2013 was the year of Candy Crush Saga. It was on television, in music videos, and — most importantly — it was in the hearts and minds of millions of mobile gamers around the globe. Let's see if one of these ten alternatives can't dislodge it.
