It is Saturday again and this means that I'm going to review another game for you to play during the weekend. Today's game is Prizma Puzzle Challenges, a browser based puzzle game in which you need to direct light - or is it a laser? - through various nodes to reach the exit of the level. In order to do that you need to keep an eye on the energy level in the lower left corner of the screen. This indicates the remaining number of nodes that you can connect. To make matters more complicated, you can never go back to a node. Once you activated it and left it, it is blocked so that you need to plan well in advance to get the right route from start to goal.
Since it would be pretty boring to just connect nodes, you will encounter all kinds of special nodes. Some give you energy back, others unblock regions or have the ability to break crystals which block your route to the finish.
The first ten or so levels should not be to much of a challenge for most gamers. Once you reach level ten things get a little bit more complicated as you know have multiple routes to take. Not all later levels are considerably more difficulty though. The Cannon Challenge levels for instance should not pose a problem for the majority of gamers.
But even if you are stuck in one level, you have the option to try a different zone first and come back later to the level that you could not complete.
Later levels are challenging. You may encounter multiple start locations or teleporters that add to the complexity of the solution. And if you are really stuck you can click on the Walkthrough button to watch a video walkthrough of all levels.
Prizma Puzzle Challenges is a great game for a break. You can complete most levels in less than a minute, provided that you find the right path right away. Some levels can be frustrating to complete, but since you can select others to continue playing that should not bother you to much.
You can play the game in your web browser over at Kongregate.
