PUZZLE DIMENSION

Doctor Entertainment
PS3/PSN (also on PC, Mac)

Doctor Who. Heís been around. Flitting through time and space willy-nilly, yet somehow heís never come across any of these seemingly commonplace puzzle worlds that just kinda hover, waiting for hapless sods to stumble in so that they can completely fuck with their brains. Fantastic!

Puzzle Dimensionís another ladies-and-gentlemen-weíre-floating-in-space mind-bendy thing, working in much the same way the likes of Echochrome, Ilomilo and Kula World grab spatial physics by the ínads then twist and turn with gay abandon. Had a big lunch thatís not sitting right? Have fun, sweetie...

We mentioned classic PSX puzzler Kula World back there, and thatís what Puzzle Dimension reminds us of most. You control a ball which can move towards any compass point, as long as itís one of the big four Ė none of this new-fangled diagonal crap. You roll about gravity-defying platforms gathering sunflowers Ė aww! - before naffing off through a portal to the next synapse-sizzling adventure out of the 100 featured (all in scrummy 1080p with funktastic chiptune-versus-MIDI mash-ups blaring).

Sounds simple, yeah? Ah, but we havenít mentioned any of the impediments to shooming. Bricks with pricks come, bricks with ice come. Bricks with sand and cracks and flames come. BWAHAHA, and thatís just for starters! These all require diverse strategies to combat, making a simple flower-picking outing one thatíll stretch your IQ to fer-TWANGing point, let it flick back to make the grey matter yelp ďouch!Ē, then elasticate it again and repeat ad infinitum... or until you nail level 100.

Short on patience? This isnít your kind of game. Short on time? This isnít your kind of game. Somebody who demands instant gratification? This isnít your kind of game.

Persistent, time-rich and prepared to work for reward? Then this IS your kind of game. 10/11 Doctors recommend it...

take me back to the start...
