Puzzle Frenzy from Playstige Interactive is a new game on PlayStation 4 with six different types of challenges to beat. The game’s puzzles are now split into six different categories: Color Connect, Pipes, Word Connect, Block Escape, Luminous Loops, and Move the Ball. For each of these categories, there will be 50 puzzles to solve, and each one will have three difficulty settings, which will affect how much time you have for completing each of these puzzles. You should start playing the first set of puzzles in each category on easy so that you can get the hang of things.
For Color Connect, there are 50 puzzles to solve, for which you’ll have to move around the grid with the D-Pad as you select a block with the X button. As you keep the button pressed, you must draw a line from the selected block to that of the same color. Connect all entities of the same color, and you’ll beat the level! For Pipes, you’ll move around the grid with the D-Pad, as you use the Square button to rotate pipes to the left and the Square button to rotate a pipe to the right. The goal? To get the water flowing from one side to the other.
In Word Connect, there will be a circle at the bottom of the screen with letters. Your task will be to use the D-Pad to move the pink circle inside of the circle with the letters to pick each letter in order so that you can form words. Keep the X button pressed, and then move the cursor to the next letter to form a word. Most of the time, you only need to use each letter once, but there are some words for which you’re going to have to repeat a letter. For Block Escape, you must move around the grid to select the blocks on the playing field to then press the X button to grab hold of it and move the block around so that the blue block can be moved to the arrow on the right side of the screen.
Luminous Loop will ask that you navigate around the grid with the D-Pad as you use the Square and Circle buttons to rotate a puzzle piece left or right so that you can rotate all puzzle pieces and connect them so that all pieces light up with energy. The last puzzle category is Move the Ball. For these puzzles, you’ll have to move boxes out of the way and move pieces to the right spot so that the ball can move from point A to point B. As you slide pieces into place, you’ll have to think one step ahead so that you don’t block the path of other pieces, or else you’ll have to retrace your steps.
As has been the case for most games from Playstige Interactive, this one has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. While there are 300 puzzles to take on, you won’t need to complete all of them to get that new Platinum trophy. As long as you complete at least five puzzles from each of the six categories, you’ll be able to get all trophies. And yes, you can play them on the easy difficulty setting to speed things up.
If you like puzzle games, then you’re going to have a great time with Puzzle Frenzy. The six puzzle types on offer are simple but fun, which is what you want from a game like this one. Puzzle Frenzy is out on PlayStation 4 with a low $4.99 price, making it a great option for puzzle fans.
