The 24 games of Christmas! Game #7: Puyo Puyo Tetris

2 mins read

It’s that time of year again! The decorations are out, the house smells of Christmas thanks to the tree in the living room, presents are sitting under the tree and all the good food is on the table. We do love Christmas at DDNet, and as always, we’re doing an advent calendar of our own on the site. Each day we’re going to list one game that’s just perfect to play over the Christmas season, so be sure to check back each day to get all the gaming suggestions you’ll need for the season. 

Game #7: Puyo Puyo Tetris
(Read our review of the game here)

The relative accessibility of puzzle games means they translate brilliantly to a casually competitive environment (so long as the more experienced players pull their punches a little). Anyone who has played video games probably has some passing knowledge of Tetris, or failing that, falling block puzzlers. As such, you can whip out Puyo Puyo Tetris and expect to entertain a broad crowd for a while using two of the genre’s most prolific properties. Puyo Puyo Tetris isn’t just two great games, though. The real joy begins when the chain combo shenanigans of Puyo Puyo merge with the more orderly Tetris in a crossover mode like little else out there. The initial insanity and confusion upon trying that mode guarantees some good laughs.
