Capcom Puzzle World

New collection brings the love with seven old-school classics

But Buster Bros. Collection - which includes Buster Bros., Super Buster Bros. and Buster Buddies - hasn't been available since the PSone days, and adds a few new extras to go along with its rapid-fire, Space Invaders-with-bubbles gameplay. Not only will it enable you to pair up with a friend (or upload your scores to their PSP) via an ad hoc connection, but it'll let you import your own photos for use as backgrounds.

Aside from offering seven retro puzzle games (counting the Puzzle Fighter variations, two of which are being released stateside for the first time), Capcom Puzzle World is remarkable for being the first PSP game to let players take their own in-game screenshots, letting you immortalize your victories in jpeg form. Old-schoolers scouring eBay for Puzzle Fighter will definitely want to take notice, but even if you've never played these games before, Puzzle World will be worth keeping an eye on.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
