'Neves' (NDS) Announced - Screens

by Rainier on July 25, 2007 @ 9:42 a.m. PDT

NEVES is a puzzle game that challenges players to think critically as they align pieces and build figures that correspond to a silhouette. Each puzzle features 7 wooden blocks, requiring the player to combine them to form specific figures ranging from simple items like a sword or key to more complicated ones such as birds or airplanes.

Targeted towards a more mature audience, NEVES still appeals to anyone who enjoys challenging puzzles. And because of the unique stylus controls of the Nintendo DS, controlling the puzzle pieces in NEVES is a cinch; tilting, flipping, and moving the blocks is as simple as dragging and tapping. But be careful, just because controlling the pieces is easy doesn't mean the puzzles have to be. With over 500 different puzzles to choose from and four different modes including puzzle mode, count mode, time mode, and versus mode, players will have countless hours of fun solving puzzles of varying difficulty.

"We're greatly excited to bring NEVES to the Nintendo DS," said Shane Takahashi, CEO of Yuke's Company of America. "The game's modern aesthetic and design should appeal to more discerning gamers while its portability and approachable gameplay should interest almost anyone."

"NEVES offers simple yet stimulating entertainment, providing a challenging experience for players of all ages," said Jim Ireton, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Atlus USA. "We are happy to work with Yuke's Company of America in bringing a classic puzzle game like NEVES to the Nintendo DS."

Shapes can range from simple items like a key or chair to more complicated objects such as birds and airplanes. And with the innovative controls of the Nintendo DS it’s as easy as ever to position your pieces, but solving some of the puzzles is anything but!
