Amazing looking 11th-hour game of the year candidate

10 December, 2009 (12:28) | Gaming | By: Brian

As my addiction to the Puzzle Quest games and Gyromancer will no doubt attest, I’m a fan of the puzzle/RPG hybrid genre that has sprung up recently on handhelds and the PC. I suppose Bookworm Adventures might also count. This week Capybara Games (totally awesome name!) released an impressive-looking entry into the field which takes the puzzle/RPG combo and adds some elements of turn-based tactics RPGs and Magical Drop move mechanics. It’s called “Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes”. Having read some of the early reviews and hands-on coverage, this quirky title has jumped straight to the top of my Xmas list. (Yes, I already own too many games to play and too many books to read, sue me.) Check out some video:

And the official sites.

2009 has already been an amazing year for video gaming with incredible sequels such as Left 4 Dead 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, plus brilliant new IPs such as Plants vs. Zombies and Torchlight. This strange little portable strategy title may blow them all away.
