    I reckon Lode Runner is more of a platform game than a puzzle

    Here's a great puzzle game:


    Further good ones:
    Dice Puzzle
    Soko ban (yep great title)
    Night Shift
    Lights Out
    Zoop (yes I like it too)

    Lode Runner is categorized as an action-puzzle game on the packages.

    In addition I could add Puzzle Bobble to the list.

    some of the ones that have had me hooked…

    Klax (Lynx, TG-16)
    Lumines (PSP)
    Tetris DS (NDS)
    Tetris Attack (SNES)
    Mr. Driller (NDS)
    Meteos (NDS)
    Columns (Genesis)
    Ultimate Qix (Genesis)
    Arkanoid (NES)

    one thing I have learned that I enjoy puzzle game best on handhelds! I also have a few on my cellular phone:

    180
    Star*Burst (it's basically upside-down Klax)

    Some of my all-time favs:

    Meteos (NDS)
    The Next Tetris (PS1/DC) - prefer the PS1 version because of the faster frame rate and ability to listen to your own music!
    Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo/X (all versions are great)
    Magical Drop 3 (Neo Geo)
    Bust A Move 2 (PS1/Saturn, either or)
    Tetris Attack (SNES)
    Arkanoid (NES/Arcade)
    Lumines Plus (PS2)
    Chu Chu Rocket (DC) - I don't know if this counts or not...

    Agreed, and to that add Mole Mania (GB), it feels a lot like the Adventures of Lolo series which were fantastic puzzlers on the NES.

    Lolo are fine games indeed!

    and though it may be more action/puzzle? I love Chew-Man-Fu on the Turbo Grafx 16!

    I came into this thread just to say this game. I've only played the PlayStation version but I love it.

    It's actually been a bit of a problem lately because it's keeping me from my NES project.

    Dude! That game looks awesome! I have never heard of it before, but I love the Lolo games and it does somewhat resemble them. I'm gonna have to track down a copy.

    Chew-Man-Fu is fantastic, but it gets really tough in the later levels.

    I'm gonna have to nominate Splash Lake on the Turbo Grafx CD. Its A really fun high score action puzzle game.

    I also have to go with Kwirk on the Gameboy. It's an early Atlus game and you have to find your way to the exit by flipping Tetris like blocks. Its really simple and fun but the later levels make my brain hurt.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    I would have to say Sutte Hakkun for super famicom. The style is completely unique and the level of challenge it perfect! The last 10 or 15 levels will drive you insane! Definitely one of the, if not THE, best puzzle games ever.
    It's official, my snes cart only collection is complete! The collection includes both competition carts, ISS, ISSD, EMBR/SR and Super Noah's Ark 3D.


    Please check out my video game cover music.

    The Saturn version has Redbook audio, internal clock content and faster loading times. I'm just saying.

    Can't believe no one's mentioned the Picross games. Picross DS is probably the best but Picross 3D is really good, as well. Mario's Picross (for the GB) was alright if a little hard to play due to the limited color pallet and small screen. I also agree with the Bust a Move people.

    Hmmm...

    Tetris of course. GB or DS versions are best.

    Bust-A-Move is always a good shout. Especially 2.

    I have a fondness for DR. Mean Bean Machine.

    Boom Blox is awesome. The sequel not so much.

    And the Professor Layton games of course!
    I reject your reality and substitute it for one of my own!

    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is probably my favourite, but I just can't compete with the folks who play on GGPO. I liked Baku Baku Animals as well, but I think SPF2T is just all around the better game.

    Tetris is a long time favourite, too. I prefer the DS games or the TGM series, but I can play just about any version that doesn't have a bunch of gimmicky crap added to the gameplay.

    Panel de Pon is just awesome, but I really only play that one mode where you get a certain number of moves to clear the board.

    Bill's Tomato Game is a really fun physics based puzzle game for the Amiga that I feel is an overlooked gem.

    Lemmings is pretty awesome, although I think it might be more strategy than puzzle.

    I don't really consider Arkanoid or Puzzle Bobble to be pure puzzle games, but I do like both games and their many imitators, especially Puzzle de Pon and Shatter.

    Buster Bros. is another game that I like but wouldn't classify as puzzle, although Capcom seems to disagree with me about that.
