Puzzles Meet RPGs in 'Knightfall 2,' A Free Flash Game
Take one part color-coded puzzler ('Bejeweled' or 'Puzzle Bobble,' for instance) and about 100 parts dungeon-crawling, hack-and-slash RPG, and you have yourself 'Knightfall 2.' The game takes place primarily on a game board filled with multi-colored blocks, and players must clear groups of like-colored blocks in order to guide a knight towards a key, and subsequently an exit door. The actual puzzling elements of the game are fairly light, but the role-playing and skill-building add a great deal of dimension to them. Players progress through a world filled with shops and village people, collect various items, earn experience points, and battle enemies on the game board, itself. It's a really fun twist on two traditional genres, although we'd love to see the puzzling kicked up a notch for the inevitable 'Knightfall 3.'
