Cosmo Gang the Puzzle is a cute Tetris-like puzzle game by Namco, sequel of Cosmo Gang and Cosmo Gang the Video. The cute pink frog aliens are back and they once again try to invade the Earth. Nearly, as this time around they want to blow it up. Rows of various and colorful aliens fall down from the top of the screen. The player must arrange them, and various other blocks, so they can be destroyed before they become a threat. An added twist to the gameplay is how these aliens need to be crushed with a blue ball as they randomly appear on the playfield. A red arrow shows the direction in which it will roll and this way help trigger spectacular avalanches of awesome destructive power. This certainly reminds the original Cosmo Gang game where aliens had to be shot with a light gun. Like with any Tetris game out there, the game will only end with a well deserved Game Over when blocks, and aliens in this case, reach the top of the screen. Other options are of course available, such as a two players mode and a fun puzzle mode. This last mode gets the player to resolve simple puzzles where pre-arranged stacks of blocks and aliens need to be cleaned up in order to get to the next stage.

The concept created by Namco for Cosmo Gang the Puzzle was later reused by the company for Pac Attack, a puzzle game featuring Pac Man.

Cosmo Gang is back ! The game series is largely (and sadly) unknown outside of Japan, except maybe for a couple of lucky players who happened to have played the arcade game in their favorite mall of the time. The game, without being groundbreaking in any way, brings its two cents to the Tetris genre with great taste and its usual charming sense of humor. Cosmo Gang The Puzzle is a simple, yet funky and colorful game and definitively a title that any fans of the genre can appreciate.
