(Super Nazo Puyo - Rulue no Roux)
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. 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.
