Decent conversion of Taito's coin-up puzzle/logic game done by Banana Development, an independent studio that ported a lot of arcade/non-PC games to the PC. A fun puzzler where you have to eliminate blocks by moving two or more of the same kind together. Puzznic is neither original nor devious, but still has enough good old-fashion gameplay inspired by classic Sokoban and traditional tile-matching games to capture anyone's interest for a while. Software Creations' Amiga version looks, sounds and plays better, but this PC version is still an addictive game. It's a bit on the easy side, as I was able to finish it in a few sittings, so puzzle experts may find it a waste of their time. Newcomers to the genre and Sokoban fans will like this game a lot, though. Two thumbs up!
