I had a doctor's appointment this morning so, of course, my trusty DS was thrown into my purse and taken along for waiting room entertainment. I settled down amid the coughing, contagious masses and started up Galactrix.
You know, the more I play this game, the more frustrated I become with it. My hatred of hacking leapgates grows every time I have to do it. What drives me crazy is that it is timed. Inevitably, what ends up happening is that I get cascades of matches which don't do me any good because they aren't the right color, thus costing me time. Granted, it usually only costs me five seconds or so, but when you only have sixty seconds to clear the board....yeah. Five seconds makes a difference.
That, and it never fails that I reach a point where it asks for, say....yellow...as my next match and there are no yellow tokens on the board. I then have to spend precious time just making as many matches as possible and hoping that I can get three yellows to appear somewhere close to each other. Of course, what always happens is that they do, indeed, appear...all at opposite ends of the board from each other. I then have to try and make matches so that they fall towards each other. NERD RAGE!!!
I always end up running out of time with one or two matches to go because of the two factors above. I'm ending up setting this game aside more and more. I hate that, though. I loved the first Puzzle Quest and still continue to play the bejeebers out of it. I so wanted to love this game to, and to have another staple DS game that I pick up and play all the time. But, I just don't think that is going to happen.
