Together Retro: Puyo Puyo

by racketboy Sun May 01, 2016 3:17 pm

Such a great puzzle series! My first exposure was Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and I loved Puyo Puyo Fever on the Dreamcast. So many great ports and sequels on so many platforms. Highly recommended!

I have Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, which was my first exposure to the series too. I loved it as a kid. I also have Puyo Puyo Fever on the Dreamcast, which is also really addictive and fun.

Good choice for Together Retro! I might play through both.

Yep, Mean Bean Machine for me too. I played it to completion (on normal) back in the day on that Sonic ClassIics 3-in-1 cart.

Anyone play Tecmo Stackers (PS1). It's pretty similar, but easier to combo.

yo! Thanks to the new Steam Workshop integration of the Sega Genesis games, there's a mod that'll revert Mean Bean back to the Japanese Puyo Puyo!

Puyo Puyo Tetris is great! I imported it a couple months ago for PS3 and it's super fun, granted the 'Puyo Puyo Tet-mix' game mode is hard as nails, especially for someone who's bad at Puyo Puyo as much as me Xp

My first exposure to the series was when I misread "avalanche" for "adventure" when I was very young, and bought Kirby's Avalanche thinking it was just like Kirby's Adventure 3 on SNES. Being so disappointed that it was a puzzle game, I really didn't have time to enjoy it back then Xp

I got a copy of Puyo Puyo Sun for the saturn a while back so I'll give that a go. Not a series I know much about aside from that it was massively popular in Japan.

I actually have 2 games ready to play this month.

This one:

And this one:
Image

The first is basically a PC Engine CD port of the original from my understanding. It's also balls hard - I've beaten both Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Kirby's Ghost Trap before, but both are way easier than this!

The second is a version of the sequel, Puyo Puyo Tsuu, which I wanted to try because it apparently fixes a lot of issues I have with the first, such as how an opponent's big combo can instantly screw you over.

Should be a good month.

Do people recommend Puyo Pop Fever?

More of a Dr Mario and Puzzle Bubble guy, but I love games like this. Mean Bean is awesome.

I've got a few ways to do it.

- Mean Bean Machine on the Gamecube's Sonic Mega Collection (NOTE: I did play (and complete) Kirby's Avalanche back in the day, so this is probably the purest form and very similar to that)

- Puyo Pop Fever on the Gamecube

- Puyo Pop on the GBA

only the first one you mentioned is Puyo Puyo. The other two are sequels.
