Excerpt: You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it every time a developer comes out with an XBox 360 Arcade puzzle game: there are just too many. It seems as if there’s a puzzle game for every walk of life: Bejeweled 2 for the familiarized casual crowd, Puzzle Quest for the RPG touch, Hexic HD for the single-player enthusiast (and cheapskate if you’re still playing the one the console came with!), and the list goes on.
Excerpt: Wombat alluded to it, but Poker Smash is not bad at all. In fact it's easily one of the best puzzle games on Xbox Live Arcade! Big words for a simple match-3, but the presentation values, controls and fun factor really come together to make this a solid title.
Conclusion: With the recent explosion in popularity of all things Texas Hold ‘em, it’s refreshing to experience a Poker related game outside of the 100′s of tournament clones around today. Void Star Creations’ Poker Smash is a welcomed addition to Xbox LIVE Arcade and one that has definitely proved a smash! Poker Smash is a “rising block” puzzle game with each block being a playing card from 10 through to Ace.
