    Finally, a worthy successor to Puzzle Quest and Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes!

    Each level is the perfect length for your average coffee break, with addicting gameplay that’ll keep you coming back to three-star every level. The price point is a little high at $18 CAD as of this writing, but if you’re into this sort of thing, or can pick it up on sale, I definitely recommend it.

    Concrete Jungle has a very nice look, the interface works well, you can control the game with mouse/keyboard or with a game-pad.

    Concrete Jungle is solid in its execution, especially considering the apparent mismatch of genres at play. There’s a lot here for those who love unique strategic play. The amount of content and available randomly-generated maps certainly helps fill out its total content. It may not do enough to draw in those who aren’t already strategy fans, but it’s a great pick-up for those who are.

Love the gameplay, and the art is really pretty. Characters felt fresh in their stereotypes (the plucky, cute urban-planner, the sportsfan, the army soldier, the (French?) nerd, the deadbeat politician).

    You can tell the dev put a lot of love into this game, and I was really absorbed with the visuals. The art is really, really strong.

    There exists some limited deck-management, but only for your starting buildings. I would have liked to have the ability to customize my entire deck, but that's a minor preference.

    Great game, want to see more from ColePowered now.

If you're hoping for anThe game has a refreshingly fun and delightful concept, ruined by a poorly planned campaign and impossible game-play. If you're hoping for an enjoyable, relaxing puzzles based on logic, turn back now before it's too late. The first few levels lure you in with pleasant, appealing game design with an interesting take on city-building/puzzle-busting.

    Suddenly. Versus mode appears.

    The developers neglected to add a simple, single-player campaign, which would have made Concrete Jungle a solid title for all puzzle-lovers to pick up. Instead, you are roadblocked from advancing by unbeatable, cheating AI opponents. The game slows down to a slog as you're forced (as in you're stuck at the start of the campaign and cannot unlock new content) to roll a six-sided die and if you happen to roll a 6, great! You get the content you paid for. If you roll 1-5? Oh darn, the AI automatically wins the game and you have to try again!

    The developers held a glinting gold nugget in their hand for a few moments before dropping it down into a mucky, feces-filled well. Oops! Unless you want to get your hands dirty, steer clear and don't waste your hard-earned money on this overwhelming disappointment.
