About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

SEGA of America today announced the release of Puyo Pop Fever exclusively for the GameCube. The latest version of SEGA's signature brainteaser comes from Sonic Team with wacky new puzzle pieces and a combo-crazy Fever Mode. Here are a few more screens ...

The Puyo Pop franchise has received a major facelift to include new puzzle pieces, featuring triple and quadruple sets of colorful, gelatinous bubbles (or Puyo). Additionally, the new Fever Mode gives a new twist to completing combinations. Having quick reflexes and thinking ahead is rewarded in this fast paced, adrenaline-pumping multiplayer title.

"Puyo Pop Fever is a great puzzle game that members of the whole family can enjoy," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of entertainment marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Sonic Team has crafted an entertainment experience that's surprisingly difficult to pull yourself away from. It will hook you in a matter of minutes."

Eye-popping 3D graphics enhance the impact when completing massive combinations. The screen explodes in a stunning display of color blasts when you complete chain combinations. Players can also play solo in a humorous, easy-to-get-into Story Mode. Amitie, the story's perky heroine, will encounter a slew of Loony characters that challenge her to battles of Puyo.

Puyo Pop Fever is rated "E" for Everyone and is available at retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $29.95.
