Puzzle Quest is the very definition of a successful genre hybrid. It's a deep and flexible puzzle game backed up by an enormous, deep and engaging RPG experience, combining the 'just one more level' factor of both genres. Plus, it may well be one of the most addictive games ever made.

This hefty saving on Puzzle Quest 2 (the hefty sequel to the original hybrid classic) comes with a bit of a caveat.

First things first: the cheapest way to get Puzzle Quest II is to download it for your iDevice or Windows 7 Phone from their respective marketplaces - or net it on XBLA. However, if you're seeking the Nintendo DS version, Choices UK have the cheapest price around. The sequel to the unbelievably successful (and, for my money, truly wonderful) original Puzzle Quest introduces a new isometric view that brings you closer to the action, as well as the new weapons, action points and block systems. It's an excellent game, but one that's also much smaller in scope and ambition than the first triumphant outing.
