Cast your mind back to 2008 and you may remember Wind and Water Puzzle Battles being released on the Dreamcast developed by Yuan Works and published by RedSpotGames, the game was an absolutely stunning puzzle game with excellent design qualities and some very well paced action wrapped in a story mode often containing light satirical gags based around the gaming industry. The has been out of print for a little while now with no second batch mentioned or in sight….. Until now.
Fast forward to July 2016 and DragonBox Shop, the guys behind the disc version of Fruit’Y have taken over publishing of the game and are hoping to bring it to a new audience at only 9.99 EUR. Wind and Water Puzzle Battles was a labour of love for it’s two man development team and deserves to be played by all those still actively buy games for their Dreamcast, you really won’t be disappointed and at this price, it represents such good value for money. Worth noting for variant collectors out there is the lack of RedSpotGames branding meaning this is indeed a second edition release with DragonBox replacing RSG on the rear of the manual with the 2016 copyright replacing the original 2008 one.
