Neves review.

When I first saw Neves, I was hesistant. Generally speaking, puzzle solving games aren’t up on my list of anticipated games. Now, Neves looked like it might be different, it has a glimmer of originality. Neves might not be exactly what I was waiting for, but it is a surprisingly complete package.

Neves is a stylish puzzle game on the DS that has a straightfoward premise: slide the pieces into the diagram so that they form a picture. Surprisingly enough, this proves to be one of the most addictive puzzle games since Tetris. It’s difficulty is set just right, a perfect blend of ‘I’m so close!’ and ‘This is aggravating me’, so that you finish the puzzle just before you might become aggravated. There is plenty of puzzles to choose from, and the game is great for a quick jump in and hop out. It’s a great on-the-go game, and holds plenty of hours of gameplay. Local multiplayer with either one or more carts is great too, and the autosave feature throughout the game is really nifty.

Neves is definitely a great game, but it isn’t perfect. Although it has local multiplayer, I would have loved to see online multiplayer as well as online highscore boards. Occasionallty the pieces don’t slide in together as one might hope, and sometimes controlling the pieces is messy.

Overall, Neves is a comfortable quickplay game that will last in the long run. If only it had online scoreboards.
