Perhaps one of the most surprising games NWR has played at the Media Summit was Neopets Puzzle Adventure, a game based on the extremely popular virtual pet website. Typically, games using licensed properties aren't particularly appealing; however, the game is actually quite compelling. It turns out that the game is being developed by the makers of Puzzle Quest, Infinite Interactive, and it shows.
The core of Neopets Puzzle Adventure is a simple one: the game of Othello, also known as Reversi. Players take turns placing pieces of their color on a board using the stylus. Pieces are captured when one player's pieces surround each end of a row of their opponents pieces horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
