Special thanks to Duke over at Game Revolution for his fine review of Puzzle Quest, and for calling out a recent EL comic to help illustrate his point. A quote is in order:
Which is why Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is so brilliantly addictive. While the “Puzzle” part of the game is essentially various forms of Bejeweled, the “Quest” part is a full-blown RPG that uses Bejeweled in different ways for much of the gameplay. Scott Johnson put it better than I can – it truly is Bejeweled for dorks.
