NZGamer: TiQal Review - 'A puzzler worth your time, money and praise'

NZGamer writes: "Forget your oxen and well-supplied wagon. It's time to abandon the Oregon Trail and follow a darker path. TiQal has arrived on the Xbox Live Arcade and will have you adventuring into the depths of the jungle, embarking on a quest to save your Ancient Mayan village.

Harking back to the good old days of text-based adventure games, you'll venture along a map with little more than a blurb or two to explain your mysterious surroundings. Each stop you come to will open up a puzzle stage to be completed before you move forward.

Like an illegitimate love child of Tetris and Lumines, TiQal presents you with the straightforward task of stacking and rotating falling shapes in order to form blocks of four or more similar colours. With a steadily rising base of blocks, the only way to survive is to form large combos of blocks to clear some space. Later stages will ensure the block wall rises faster and the falling shapes become more cumbersome and bulky."

The story is too old to be commented.
