I was so eager to play Puzzle & Dragons Z, the first reason being that we in SA can’t get the game on Android and then because it gets released on the 3DS together with a Super Mario Bros version.
Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros is a great buy as you get two games in one. Puzzle & Dragons is a typical match 3 puzzle game but with some added features and little twists. To make matches you can drag a tile for a certain limited time to any space on the board, this allows for some great strategy and some thinking of your next move/s. It has some JRPG elements added to it and the gameplay is a lot like a Pokemon game. You run around completing quests and collecting dragons/monsters to add to your arsenal.
The story is quite interesting and it will make you want to play further to see what happens, but at times there can be a lot of reading just to get to some action. You will also move a lot between the missions and the headquarters to hatch some new eggs or level up your monsters. This type of gameplay takes the classic Match 3 genre to some new grounds and will make for some great games to come out to take on this new style.
The game has some great characters and if you love JRPG games then you will feel right at home, for those of you that do not know JRPG games don’t fear as it is really easy to grasp this game and maybe this will get you to look at some other great JRPG titles out there. There are tons of monsters/dragons to collect and power up and transform and much more…
Super Mario Bros Edition
Now imagine Puzzles & Dragons set in the Mario universe, well imagine no more! The Mario universe gets revamped and Mario is off again to go save Princess Peach, you will get allies along the way to help with the battle even some goombas and koopa troopas joinging your battle.
The gameplay style of Puzzles & Dragons melts in well with the Mario universe and if you are an avid Mario fan you will Love it! The graphics are toned to Mario’s style and still looks great. The other elements stay the same with a few differences to fit Mario’s style.
There is so much to do in these two games and sometimes you will struggle to decide which one to play, this is a great deal and a must have game for anyone that owns a 3DS. Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros Edition can be played anywhere and enjoyed by anyone!
