I’m not sure I’d consider myself a big puzzle gamer. Oh sure, I played Tetris on the original NES and owned it in various forms over the years. I suppose that I’ve also played plenty of addictive but not particularly deep ‘puzzle-like’ games on the Atari 2600. But I feel like my gaming renaissance came with Puzzle Quest on the Nintendo DS around two years ago. With the addition of story to a well presented puzzle game, I was in gaming nirvana. I’ve been searching for a follow up, and almost found it in Aurora Feint, but to put it in baseball terms, that game was like a triple. Azkend is a homerun.
