Ever since I saw Puzzle Quest in an old UK PSP Buyer's Guide (not sure if it was a Retro Gamer special or not) I was hooked on this style of game.  A year later when I got a PSP, I immediately got PQ for it and was just as excited as I was when I first saw it.

Seeing this type of game on the Game Boy/Color is pretty awesome.  I hope this sees a fair bit of success with the fans out there.

Looks like they've sold pretty well.  If I'm reading correctly, they only have 4 carts left out of 180 to sell from the second run.

That is awesome especially considering most indie games like this are limited to one run of 50 to 100 carts and that is it (never understood that way of thinking).  Hopefully they will offer variant covers for subsequent print runs like comic books do it.

It'll be interesting to see what happens.  Particularly because they say that if they go above 200 carts the price may go up!  It seems finding the carts is difficult.
