Snood

You don’t see simple, engaging puzzle games on the cover of games magazines. Their creators are not keynote speakers and are not recognised as being among the top 10 game developers in the world, even though their games are probably played more than any ‘conventional’ game title.

Tetris was the game that originally sold the GameBoy. It was the single hit game that convinced people to buy. These days, you can’t sell puzzle games like Tetris on a commercial basis because the competition is $70m-budget titles like Final Fantasy. When Tetris launched though, it was a big deal and its creator, Alex Pajitnov became a game celebrity. All of which brings us neatly to Snood!
