Puzzle game

Here is a game from Compile's popular Puyo Puyo series. But here, rules have slightly changed, hence the name Nazo Puyo instead of Puyo Puyo (Nazo means 'enigma' or 'riddle' in Japanese). First of all, puzzles are still present in this version, but the player has to visit small towns and challenge its inhabitants in Puyo battles. When a group of characters is finally defeated, it is time to play against the master Puyo who keeps the entrance to the next level. An interesting twist has also been added to the original Puyo Puyo's rules - each stage asks the player to fulfill a certain task, like clean up all beans only using a limited amount of puyos, or only puyos of a specific color. This can be tricky and challenging for non-Japanese speaking players though, these conditions being mentioned at the beginning of each puzzle in Japanese. And some of the later tasks can be hard to figure out, such as chain-reactions or groups or puyos that need to be erased at the same time. The game can be played in Story mode (where the player can either play as Rulue or Arle and travel the world looking for the ultimate curry recipie) or in Puzzle mode giving the player a countless amount of puzzles to solve. Finally, a Nazo Puyo Editor is also available and allows players to create their own mind boggling puzzles.

Nazo Puyo is an interesting variation of Puyo Puyo's series of games and several titles were released. The first two were available for Sega's Game Gear, namely Nazo Puyo (1993) and Nazo Puyo 2 (1993). Then Nintendo's Super Famicom saw two titles : Super Nazo Puyo: Rurū no Rū (1995) and Super Nazo Puyo Tsū: Rurū no Tetsuwan Hanjyouki (1996).

See Puyo Puyo CD (Pce-SCD²) for more information about the Puyo Puyo series.

I must warn you, Super Nazo Puyo is very confusing at first, especially if you do not read Japanese well. But once you get the hang of it, I feel that the game becomes much more challenging and interesting than any other Puyo Puyo title (especially in single play). It definitively forces the player to use more brain power than ever before, and is more oriented towards puzzle solving than Puyo stacking. Super Nazo Puyo won't be every player's cup of tea, but it certainly is a great variation of the Puyo Puyo genre.
