Default Gunpey Yokoi

Gunpei Yokoi won't let a little thing like DEATH get in the way of making new games, apparently.

I just picked up a game called "Gunpey" in a bargain bin for $10, and honestly I don't see how this didn't become a hit. According to the back of the game's box (and the reason I decided to pony up for it) not only is this game made by legendary puzzle game company Q?, it is essentially a remake of an old game that never left the drawing board made by Gunpei himself back when he still roamed the earth. Honestly it's one of the most unique puzzle games I've played in a while.

Anyway, as for the game, it's really cool. Basically you have a big grid of dots and your goal is to connect lines across the screen. That's it, but it's awesome! More details: basically your cursor covers two boxes and you switch the square above with the square below. You can also press a button to "scroll" the screen up one level, as the lines keep coming from below. You can use this to connect all kinds of line segments together and it doesn't need to be straight across. Doubling back to connect lots of line segments together is almost a needed strategy.

Edit: Never mind, turns out it WAS released for the DS.

So they did release it on the DS! That's good.

Huh, they seem to have changed the theme up a bit. From bizarre what the hell to some sort of cowboy thing.

I'm not so sure about that... I will say this, they seem to be some sort of cyber punk cowboys what with the died green hair and all.

Just got to say that his name was Gunpei, not Gunpey. That's just the game's name.

I try to make it a point not to play games I cannot pronounce.

But it's pronounced pretty much the way it's spelled...
