Game Profile

SameGame is a simple yet engrossing puzzle game where you must clear matching blocks in sets of two or more. Score high by clearing out more blocks at once. If you manage to clear the entire grid, you can keep on playing with a whole new layout. Getting rid of all those blocks is the key to racking up points. Adjust the difficulty level in a one-player game by trying different grid sizes and multiple colors.

Up to four players can face off in any one of three multiplayer modes. “Fame Game,” the most straightforward choice, is similar to the one-player version. “Shame Game” turns the tables by forcing players to go for the lowest score. “Blame Game” is a free-for-all as everyone vies for blocks on one big grid. Choose from different block styles, background graphics and music to customize your playing experience.

Europe PAL Version

Is Hudson’s puzzler a worthy purchase or just more of the same?

SameGame is a bit of an unusual one. It was first created way back in 1985, but was never really all that popular. Nevertheless, it went on to spawn a large number of clones and remakes over the years, with Hudson’s effort being the latest.The basic...

It's time for another Hudson WiiWare game! The oddly named Pop Them, Drop Them SameGame, based on the old PC game SameGame will be available in Japan next Tuesday.

At least we know more now. I never realised that this is a remake of an old PC game. However, at 500 Points, Hudson could pull yet another good game out of the bag. Honestly, they are the best of the best when it comes to WiiWare

Here's my thoughts on the game, which has to be the best 500 point game yet in my opinion. "Pop Them, Drop Them SAMEGAME offers just what you want in a puzzler: gameplay that can be completed with or without lots of thought or quick reactions, a multiplayer mode that feels more like you're having fun rather than thinking with a friend, and of course, the all important "one more go" factor, making you want to keep on playing until your remote's batteries die."

Bubble Bobble hasn't even been officially announced for release outside Japan yet, I doubt it's coming soon.

Be that as it may, it's been rated by both the OFLC and the ESRB, meaning it is indeed coming to both regions. So if I see it come soon, I won't be surprised. In fact, I'll say between April and the end of May as my prediction. :)

For 500 points I got this one. It is simple but fun and very well done for what it is. Wow and only 43 blocks too! One of those fun puzzle games you can spend 5minutes or an hour with. Has good multiplayer which is a big plus for our family. About the only con I have is with the “score records” it is kind of clumsy to see your records. But good game for the price.
