Description of Puzznic

Decent conversion of Taito's coin-up puzzle/logic game done by Banana Development, an independent studio that ported a lot of arcade/non-PC games to the PC.

A fun puzzler where you have to eliminate blocks by moving two or more of the same kind together. Puzznic is neither original nor devious, but still has enough good old-fashion gameplay inspired by classic Sokoban and traditional tile-matching game to capture anyone's interest for a while. Software Creations' Amiga version looks, sounds and plays better - but this PC version is still an addictive game. The game is a bit on an easy side, as I was able to finish it in a few sittings, so puzzle experts may find it a waste of their time.

Newcomers to the genre and Sokoban fans will like this game a lot, though. Two thumbs up!

One look at the screenshots for the Japanese versions tells you... we in the west got short-changed. ;)

The game isn't bad, but it kinda failed on the C64 because it was penned in as a cartridge game. The problem with that is, the graphics were basic, and people didn't pay extra for cartridge games for basic looking games, especially when there were games of the calibre of Navy Seals, Myth, Battle Command etc. There was nothing wrong with the game itself, but this was released a few years too late.

I played Puzznic back in the 90's.
Recently I developed a 3D puzzle that takes inspiration from Puzznic, try it:
