From the second you plug this game into your Game Boy Color, it's apparent that Pokémon Puzzle Challenge is essentially the Tetris Attack that was released some time ago for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy systems.
Pokémon characters abound; your young cousin or little sister should be able to rattle off many of their names effortlessly. The game is designed for young gamers, and encourages problem solving--something that all parents should want their children to learn while playing a game. Thankfully, the game controls are easy to pick up, and the tasks are easy to execute.
For a puzzle game, this one has a good number of gameplay options and modes. Puzzle University looks simple, at first, but it proves to be a real brainteaser. In this mode, you must clear the entire screen in a limited number of moves--a twist that makes the game surprisingly addictive. It's good to see that Pokémon Puzzle Challenge has made some minor improvements on the now-classic game of Tetris.
Naturally, the graphics are better on the Nintendo 64 version; but, if you've got a long ride planned, or that plane's been delayed, this game will turn hours into minutes. If you're looking for a family-friendly title for all of the Game Boy Color users in your family, look no further than Pokémon Puzzle Challenge. --Todd Mowatt
