Another nice little puzzle game that's just right to play over that little break, Loopz is a faithful PC version of a classic Atari game for the Atari ST computer. The idea is fairly simple: place random pieces on the grid to build so-called "loopz" – closed loops which disappear to make place for more tiles... so you can build more loopz, and so on. You gain more points if you are able to make bigger loopz when it closes, so it pays to wait for the perfect tile (similar to Tetris) that guarantees a lot of points. The game features three different play modes and a two-player option. Fans of LucasFilm's earlier Pipe Dreams should have a blast, although Loopz is much more similar to Tetris and arguably more complex. Highly recommended!
