Macworld's Game Room has a new review available, this one focusing on PlayFirst's TriJinx. The "match three" puzzle title puts players in the role of Kristine Kross who must explore ancient Egyptian tombs in search of her missing father. To move through the tombs players must match triangular shaped pieces as they fall from the top of the screen.
With a story line that’s unabashedly inspired by the Indiana Jones movies, we find Kristine—a 1930’s-era adventurer—traveling through a labyrinth of ancient tombs under the shifting sands of the Egyptian desert. She must make her way through a total of 68 levels to find her father—there are interstitial sequences with audio tracks, dialogue and sound effects paired to comic book-style illustrated panels that tell the story.Check out the full review at the link below.
Macworld Game Room: TriJinx Review
The TriJinx themselves are pyramidal puzzles—triangular-shaped pieces fall from the top in different colors, and if you can align three or more pieces together, you can make them disappear. Fill colored canopic jars with the pieces you get rid of and you can proceed to the next level. There can be obstructions in the way, but you can rotate the entire puzzle board from left to right, which will shift the pieces and reshuffle them.
