Puyo Puyo 2
A few years back, Tetris hit the States in a big way. There was an arcade game, then countless computer, console and spin-off games. In Japan, the same happened with a puzzle game called Puyo Puyo, a game that is not unlike Tetris in its theme and object. Now Puyo Puyo has a sequel. Game play is simple. You choose either the 1P to compete against the computer enemy character, or Player Vs. Player Mode. Select from the play levels: Beginner, Normal and Difficult.
By moving the joystick, you move the Puyo Puyos (which come down from above, to the left and right), and turn them around with the button.
Press the joystick downward to make them fall quickly. The whole idea of the game is to line up four or more Puyo Puyos of the same color vertically or horizontally to erase them. Erasing the Puyo Puyos will cause them to drop down on the opposition's field. Due to a chain reaction when many Puyo Puyos are erased, the opponent will have many obstructive Puyo Puyos on his field. When your screen is filled all the way to the top with Puyo Puyos, you lose and the game is over.
Almost exactly like Tetris, this puzzle game is insanely popular in the Land of the Rising Sun. As we've noted before, puzzle games do not do very well here in the States. Puyo Puyo and its sequel will most likely never make it to arcades and home units here. This shows how diverse the Japanese are in their tastes and how Americans won't play a game unless it has muscle-bound cretins beating the pulp out of each other. Hopefully when this fighting game kick dies out (in the near future if we're lucky) we'll see more diversity in arcade games with titles such as Puyo Puyo 2.
