Summary: Honeycomb Beat marks another puzzler release on the DS, which already has it's own hefty line of solid puzzle games. Despite it's derivative feel, gameplay, and overall delivery though, Honeycomb Beat manages to provide enough fun and challenge to make it pretty solid overall. When first poppong in Honeycomb Beat, you'll notice an uncanny resemblance to Lumines as you use the stylus to tap the touch screen in an effort to change the colors of the hexagon-shaped grids...
Summary: From its title, you might be forgiven for thinking that Honeycomb Beat is a musical puzzle game, like Lumines. It isn't, though: Honeycomb Beat is based around a simple tile-flipping mechanic that sees you tapping - or "beating" - hexagonal tiles to swap their colour. The hook is that the tiles are connected - flip a tile and any of the tiles touching it are also flipped. There are two game types on offer.
Pros: 200 puzzles; stylish presentation; plenty of unlockables.
Cons: Far too simple to keep you playing for any length of time.
