Loopz 

 

I am very thankful I had the money to purchase Loopz on the Evercade Multi Game Cartridge Atari Lynx Collection 1. This puzzle video game is very fascinating indeed. Loopz is a puzzle game where we drop tiles down on a board. The goal of Loopz is to make a complete loop. Then all of those pieces will go away. This is easier said than done since the game only gives us so much time to place the pieces. Meaning we are not given alot of time to plan out our moves.

Loopz comes with multiple game types, cursor changes, game level selections, music, and which button places/rotates. We can rotate the pieces before we place them on the rectangle board as well. It takes a few attempts to really learn how to play Loopz. It is not as intuitive as say Tetris. Many of the aspects of Tetris can be found in Loopz. The complexity to Loopz is much deeper than Tetris in my person and professional opinion.

The music is fun to listen to in Loopz. Multiple tracks in the game help keep it a bit more fresh than some other puzzle games from that era. It is much more difficult to recover from mistakes in Loopz though. Loopz is not very forgiving in that manner. I did find a little bug that would eat the tiles. A termite eating the wood maybe? I am not clear on that point. If you have some knowledge on that please send us a message.

I enjoyed playing Loopz even though I was not always sure what to do. After doing some research and scientifically testing theories I did learn how to play Loopz a little bit better. Then I had to decide if I liked Target, Match or Chains better in the gameplay modes. It is cool that Loopz gives players that option. The options in Loopz really impress me. I just wish Loopz had given some training on what to do in the game.

I was able to get Loopz cheaper in the compilation pack than it would cost me to purchase all of these games by themselves on the original system. Plus the gameplay experience is better and easier to video capture on the Evercade than the original Atari Lynx. I hope more games like this come out in this format and on this platform very soon. It was a pleasure to play and review Loopz on the Atari Lynx and Evercade.
