Puzzle is a title developed by Idea-Tek in 1990 and released by various companies on both the Famicom and NES. The goal of the game is to solve sliding puzzles as quickly as possible.
The Famicom versions of the games feature adult-oriented puzzles in the later stages. These were replaced with harmless ones for every western release. Besides these changes, the Idea-Tek print differs from the American Video Entertainment release in having different music in-game, no music at the title screen and it mostly matches the Gluk Video release with the addition of Idea Tek Corp on the title screen.
- The starting puzzle can be chosen with select on the Level screen after pressing start on the title screen. The Idea-Tek version does not let the player select a stage above 2-3. The later puzzles are still there, however.
- Puzzle is Idea-Tek's first title.
- A prototype exists featuring different Puzzles. The dump is unfortunately improper.
