PuzzleQuest is a strategic puzzle game that uses RPG and match-3 mechanics that is a lot of fun.
Title: PuzzleQuest: Challenge of the Warlords
Where to buy: eBay
The game has four fantasy character archetypes to choose from, Druid, Knight, Warrior, and Wizard. I played through with the Druid. Each character has a unique set of skills and spells that, when combined together, create awesome chains on the board, giving you the edge in an encounter.
The game also gives you a Citadel where you can forge powerful items, learn additional spells, and improve your character.
I will say that the game gets grind-y at the end. So unless you’re incredibly skilled or incredibly lucky, you will be grinding for gold to upgrade your character’s skills.
