After a muted reception of the DS version of the game, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is set to beam into your homes via XBLA in a short week on April 8th, with a PSN version due in the Spring. Being a huge fan of the original, I can't help but be a both cautious and optimistic about this one. Although most reviews of the DS version commented on some pretty tough loading-time issues, there was also a lot of backlash in regards to simply moving along on the space map. Still, the DS is a totally different bird from my X360 and I'm at the very least hoping for Warlords in a space setting. If they can simply pull that off, Infinite Interactive will have a new customer.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Hits XBLA on April 8th, PSN Version Due This Spring

The ship is set for ludicrous speed as Infinite Interactive's newest title beams down next week.
For those unfamiliar with the series Puzzle Quest games are part puzzle game, part RPG where you take on quests from a variety of NPCs as you move around a Heroes of Might and Magic style overhead map. All fights boil down to puzzles that you can increase your chances of winning by leveling up your character class a certain way. The last game used a traditional high-fantasy backdrop. The new title, pictured below, moves the series into space.
Update: SpaceInsomniac points out the PC version is today's Amazon deal of the day and can be purchased for a cheap $10.
