We are used to puzzle games by now, especially when it comes to freeware. What can this head to head puzzle game offer? A lot, read on to find out what.

In Creatrix you basically build robots with the help of different parts. Your main objective is to get the robots you build over the opponent’s side. Of course your opponent is set to build robots as well and tries to get his contraptions over to your side.

When the opponent get robots over to your side you have failed and are punished by getting blocks placed randomly in your production field. The blocks make it more difficult to build good robots.

The parts you have at your disposal when building robots varies, but there are many available. For example you can build land, air and ceiling based robots with the help of the parts. There are also several parts made for combat and infiltration.

I really like the head to head concept in the game and also the battles. It keeps it from getting boring, because the computer or the person you are playing against always keeps on throwing new creations on you.

The graphics in the game are quite good. However one might argue that the parts for the robots are too small, it can be difficult to see what they actually symbolize. After a while you will get the hang of it.

Creatrix is easy to learn, mainly because of the well-written tutorial where everything you ever wanted to know is explained, and you also get some tips. The developers have marketed the game as a game free from violence and thereby good for the kids. However it might be too complicated for certain ages.

A musical background score has been made for the game. It’s actually pretty cool, and resembles the soundtrack from one of those movies where they steal art or diamonds.

This game is one of those games that you can release for virtually any platform available. A Pocket PC and Palm version would for example be a great move.

The most enjoyable in the game is the 2-player mode. Here you can play against a friend on the same computer. It will give you flashbacks from the 80s when all you did were playing head to head puzzle games against your friends. I miss an e-mail option, or something similar that makes it possible to play over the Internet, maybe MSN?

When playing Creatrix you notice that the game is developed with the player in focus. For example you can change the background and even select your own background image. Creatrix is also really addictive, after a while of play you don’t want to do anything else. I would recommend you puzzle geeks out there to give this game a shot. You won’t get disappointed.
