Kill Your Babies!: Solve the Puzzle Problem!



  • With 25 puzzle games, it's time to pick which one is the perfect solution to the question: Which is the best?

    As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

    I'll start! Sorry, I just never heard of that one before, so I must take it out first.

    Fine for what it is, nothing particularly innovative though and by no means the definitive puzzle game on this list.

    I don't see the point in having both Portals on this list when 2 is a clear winner. It's got more varied level design, a sweet co-op, and a compelling narrative.

    More reflex, less puzzle. Like Tetris, a one-trick pony.

    The person who proposed this wasn't even sure if this was the one they liked or not!



  • @TokyoSlim oi!!!

    I liked all of them, I just can't remember which one I liked best.



  • @bard91 well then you can sleep soundly knowing that all the rest of them not on this list are safe from being culled.

    i thought it was pretty solid when I played it but it just doesn't stack up with everything else on this list that I've actually played.

    Looks cute, but I've never heard of it, so I can only imagine it's not that important.
