The basics are really not that hard, you can "build" like in any puzzle game (the next block in line is shown on the bottom left side of the screen), and to remove a row, you need to put 2 blocks of the same colour (but different than the colour of the row) on each side of the row. Eg: you have 5 yellow blocks with a red one at one end, so you need to put a red blok at the other end of the row, a red line will now appear around that whole section & you can press the remove button if you like (should the 2 red blocks be blue blocks, a blue line will appear, same for all the other colours).
The tricky part is that you need to think in 3D because you can walk all over the place, and you can flip the puzzle in every direction with a button :lol: . And to make matters worse, you can play it 2 player against each other ;)

It's an awesome game, very stimulating for the brain

Classics: Wetrix and Bust-a-move 4 are my only puzzle games I like. I do own Chu Chu, but really am neutral on it.

It's not on the Dreamcast but Dr. Robotnik's mean bean machine. This was one of the first video games I ever played. As for my favorite on the Dreamcast, I'd have to go with The Next Tetris.

I still like Puyo Puyo Fever and Super Puzzle Fighter 2 X. They are still in my two top rated puzzle games on the dreamcast. :D

Wind and Water : Puzzle Battles, i'm playing just the the puzzle mode, and i can say it's very challenging.
Also cool and soft soundtrack, appropriate to the type of game

I am not a fan of puzzle games, but I just adore Super Puzzle Fighter II X, regardless if it's the PS1, Saturn, or Dreamcast version!
Just avoid the awful GBA port.

I'd have to go with Puzzle Bobble 4, I've always had a soft spot for the series ;)
