So as a puzzle for the ages, Dragon Orbs
isn't. Don't get me wrong, this type of game still has value in today's gaming world, however, it still has to be made well in order for it to stand up to its predecesors. One problem that I encountered was if you fire a dragon orb into an area where there is no other dragon orb to "catch" it, it simply flies off of the screen into oblivion. This tends to make the game very boring, as you spend a lot of time sitting and waiting for the right color to come up on the screen.
When you lose a level, there is a sort of soft crash as the mouse cursor will not activate the menu buttons on the side. This forces you to CTRL-ALT-DEL to get out of the game. Plus, there are so many other bugs for the studio to work on in order to just clean this title up for shipment.
With it's very small size and minimum system requirements, this title should look to the mobile phone market for the highest possible success.
At the end of the day, this game is just flat-out no fun to play. Throw in the fact that they want $15 dollars for the product and it becomes almost insulting. You can find flash games of this type, with better quality, for free if you look.
