It's Tuesday, which means another trip down to the JIG archive vault to dig up a few games from years ago that our newer visitors should not miss out on. This week I've picked out a few quirky little puzzle games that will thrill and delight you. No, really. Just give them a try and you'll see...
- Tower Blaster - If you've ever played and enjoyed Rack-O, the simple card game of racking 10 cards in numerical sequence before your opponent(s), then you'll also love this little gem. Tower Blaster is more card and board game than puzzle, but it's quirky in that the little townsfolk that help you win against the evil empire enemies are so adorable and hilarious in the little quips they say throughout the game. Play it once and you'll be hooked. I'm warning you.
- Poco Parco - Without a doubt having been inspired by the Grow games from Eyezmaze, Poco Parco is another delightful recipe game of discovery and, of course, mixing the ingredients in the correct order. This one goes a little bit further by allowing you to play and interact with the objects on screen. And you can even earn bonus points for doing so. It's all in Japanese, but it's easy enough to figure out without having to understand the language. If you get stuck, we have a walkthrough and explanations in the comments to help you along.
- Jelly Blocks - A Flash version of the classic Denki Blocks originally released for the Game Boy Advance in 2001, this version by Michael Le contains 100 levels of increasing difficulty that will surely keep you busy for a while. The concept is brilliant and the game is a wonderful Flash adaptation of the classic. Beware, though, it's a very addictive little puzzler.
While we welcome any comments about this weekly feature here, we do ask that if you need any help with the individual games, please post your questions on that game's review page. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and rediscover some awesome!
