If you are an avid fan of puzzle games and also an owner of a Nintendo DS/DSi game console then you probably already know the two are a perfect match just meant for each other. Yet, although it seems the people who designed the world’s most popular game console had puzzle gaming in mind, you are also likely to be aware of how few NDS/DSi puzzle games are available when one actually wants to play. Due for release in early October, Puzzler World for DS/DSi is one of those rare occasions where the love story between Nintendo consoles and puzzles works out in the most perfect way.

Over 1200 puzzles of 8 popular puzzle types
