The game was originally produced by Taito in 1989 and put on the market at the peak of puzzlemania insanity. It was a very clever combination of two other top-selling computer puzzles at the time: Tetris with its gravity rules and Sokoban, where the user had to push boxes.
First released as a version for arcade machines, the game just within a year made its way to the majority of popular computer systems and game consoles.
Puzznic’s concept is very simple yet it enthralls. To score you need to move the matching game elements together and make them disappear.
There is quite a challenge for your logic, nice graphics to please the eye and soft sound effects. A fine combination to carry you away. Just try it.
