Ignoring the fundamental silliness
of paying $20 or more for a game that can be played with a fifty cent box of matches, we're actually quite looking forward to Matchstick Puzzles by DS
. Which is a good thing, really, as publisher Mercury Games has just confirmed that its puzzler
is on its way to Europe next February, for a wallet-pleasing budget price of £19.99 / €24.99.
No news on a U.S. version just yet, though a European release bodes well for those who bought a DS to rearrange little pieces of virtual wood. There's a video of the game in action past the jump, and the first English language screens in the gallery below.
