– Off the cuff, Rain Drops
is about the closest counterpart to Waku
that I’m aware of, though it’s almost as comparable to PuzzLoop
in principle. Of course, if you’re looking for “official” Pokemon
puzzle games you’ve got the likes of Puzzle League
(a Panel de Pon
reskin) or Trozei
, though ironically neither of them integrates the series’ central “monster training” theme into their gameplay as ably as Waku
does. If you want to try another puzzler by Altron, from the days before they sank into licensed game hell, the dice-based Rox: 6=Six
might be up your alley.
That’s all for this week – make sure your chairs are on top of your desks before you leave, or the janitor will start beating me again.
Oh, and before you go, a personal question: having completed three classes so far, have any of you out there actually been persuaded to try any of the games we’ve studied here? I’m quite curious to know…
Either way, I’ll be back next Monday, and I hope you are too.
