Introduction to this site
I have been a fan of
puzzle games like Tetris for many years now. Those kind of
computer games have always facinated me, and served as a perfect
pastime. And as I've discovered, there's been many puzzle games
made for years, possibly ever since Atari first came up with
Breakout. Even though that may not be a puzzle game in the truest
sense, I nevertheless consider Breakout a key lead-in to many
puzzle games that came in later years, and it has some similar
qualities, since it's meant to be the kind of game you can get
really addicted to trying out to see just how long you can go in
eliminating all those colored tiles, row by row (even maze and
quiz games, depending on the structure, can count). Plus, let's
note that Breakout was an inspiration for Arkanoid, which featured
even more challenging ideas along the lines of puzzle gimmicks!
So finally, after many years of looking over as many puzzles as
possible, I thought to build a website specially dedicated to
them, where everybody can get a good look at all the great
concepts designed. From tiles to bubbles, there's plenty here.
It'll primarily feature games made for arcades, but I will try to
add games made for home consoles like Nintendo's and the
Playstation. And I encourage everybody to look for these
magnificient gems and play them as well! Happy gaming!
About the webmaster
I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974 and moved to Israel in 1983. I
played with various video games in my youth, with puzzle/breakout
games decidedly making my best experiences. And so, after many
years, I thought a website dedicated to them could be a great way
to show my appreciation of what's by far the best video games
