A new retro puzzle game has made its way to a plethora of classic platforms. This block-matching, score-busting title provides that engaging challenge for the avid puzzle solver.
Vexed created by Under4MHZ, responsible for Pillars and Pitman, has the following description on their itch.io page: “Vexed is an addictive puzzle game where you must match the blocks to remove them from the level. Sometimes three blocks must be removed in a single move. Line up the blocks to stop them from connecting. If you’re left with any single blocks remaining, you’ll have to start the level again.”
This retro puzzle game is available to play on the following platforms:
- GameBoy Classic
- Sega Master System
- Sega Game Gear
- Commodore 64
- ZX Spectrum 48/128
- ZX Spectrum Next
- Sega SG-1000
- SpectraVision SV-318/328
- Memotech MTX 500/512
- Sord M5
- Amstrad CPC
The score system works a bit differently here where “The higher number of moves, the higher the score, where the goal is to get the lowest score possible. It’s possible to go negative, the accepted solution isn’t always the best.”
This retro puzzle game is free to download from their itch.io page, however, the developer accepts payments on a ‘name your price’ basis.
