Now here's a Puzzle-game remedy that'll put the zowzers back in your trousers. Puyo Pop is an amazingly simple concept. Even if good ol' Tetris was a noggin-scratcher for you, you'll be able to figure this one out, no sweat (that is, unless you're color-blind). Just line up four pieces of the same color in any fashion, and you have yourself a match. The beauty of this formula is, it allows most people to set up rudimentary combos without a hitch. Even advanced players will dig this, as you can (with a little thought and planning) set up massive chain reactions that will make you look like Bad-Ass Gamer Supreme. This is why a previous edition of Puyo landed the #82 spot of our 100 Best Games Ever list (issue #150). This GBA version is a great deal too: Not only does it keep the original stuff intact, but it offers variation on play (like junk blocks that take extra hits to get rid of) and even better, a four-player link mode using only one cartridge. Outside of Tetris, Tetris Attack and Pokemon Puzzle Challenge, this is probably the best handheld puzzle game around.
