Even if you’re not a puzzle game fan, we’re sure you’ve hummed the theme to Tetris or Dr. Mario to yourself at some point. The music in puzzle games is meant to be listened to for long periods of time, so the composers make sure that their pieces are catchy, melodic, and fun. Listen in as Ed and Mike discuss their favorite puzzlers, and drop some blocks… I mean TUNES, from games that they love!
Featuring Chris Huelsbeck, Hip Tanaka, Hitoshi Sakimoto, and more!
Keep an ear out for two new puzzle games, too: “Mattris” and “Tetra-porta-pegga-magic-block-slide-dropper EXTREME!”
Stay tuned for an important announcement at the end of the show. 🙂
