Summary: Puzzle Dimension is everything a puzzle fan could ask for. It has all of the complexity and brain teasing fun you’d want, combined with a fun soundtrack and killer visuals. The camera could have used a bit more work and an extra mode or two wouldn’t have hurt, but I can’t come up with a serious complaint about the game at all. That is rare. If you’re looking for a great puzzle game, you could do a LOT worse that Puzzle Dimension .
Excerpt: Puzzle Dimension is definitely a unique looking game, and a good looking one. This is a kind of platformer puzzle game where you control a shiny, metallic looking ball. The twist is that everything starts out with a pixelized look, or at least a pixelized skin. The background music also starts out as an 8-bit chiptune score. As you cover more and more of the map, the tiles around you change to a modern, rendered look.
Excerpt: Rolling a ball for hours on end hasn't been this fun since Katamari. Developed by a Swedish company called Doctor Entertainment AB, Puzzle Dimension is a 3D puzzle game which manages to put a creative twist on an existing concept. For many older generation gamers, the first thing that you may notice is its similarity to an older game, Kula World (Roll Away in the US).
Excerpt: If Puzzle Dimension (available to download from the PlayStation Network right now) reminds you of 1998’s Kula World, well that’s because the designer of the game, Jesper Rudberg, was involved in its development. According to Puzzle Dimension’s official site, the game was created as many were asking for a modern day equivalent to Kula World, well we certainly have it with Puzzle Dimension .
Excerpt: Turn-based puzzle games are pretty much my favourite type of game. I mean, if I was to pick a genre rather than a level of quality, puzzle games where you can just relax and solve the puzzle would be it. But it seems to me that rewarding puzzle games are very hard to make. A few do everything right and I can enjoy them for months on end, like Picross or Slitherlink.
Excerpt: Puzzle Dimensions features no accessibility options other than the ability to turn on or off aside from that, the only option that might come in handy is the ability to change the language the game’s text appears in. That’s not to say the game is inaccessible in the least. With the only controls that ever need to be used simultaneously being the left stick/D-pad and “X”-button, there isn’t much need for button remapping.
