Go! Puzzle

The PlayStation Store gives Sony the perfect opportunity to experiment with new ways to deliver game 'content' - and also how to charge for it. The release of Go Sudoku! was a prime example: download the core game, then purchase additional bolt-on packs as and when you feel the need for new challenges. Go! Puzzle takes this notion in a new direction - standardising single-player and multiplayer modes across a series of three different puzzle games, allowing you to buy into the new ones as and when you please.

For the single-player, all three Go! Puzzle games offer basic 'action'-orientated vanilla versions of the core game along with puzzle variations that tax grey matter over joypad dexterity. Head-to-head modes are second-to-none across the range, allowing you to face-off against CPU opponents as well as online and offline adversaries. These modes are typically enlivened with the addition of power-up icons that are used to inflict a whole series of unfortunate events on your opponent at the touch of a button. On a technical level, Go! Puzzle is enhanced still further with the inclusion of full video chat facilities - something of a first for PS3 online gaming.
