Go To
Released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS, Magnetica is a Puzzle Game based on the arcade game PuzzLoop and the more well-known Xbox Live game Zuma.

In the game the player uses the touch screen to rotate a marble launcher at the bottom of the screen to launch colored marbles at a path of rolling marbles. Matching three marbles will make them disappear. The game is over if the marble chain reaches the center. Unlike PuzzLoop and Zuma, this game contains power-ups which can be accessed by scoring under certain criteria. The game was known as Shunkan Puzzloop in Japan and as Actionloop in Europe.

In 2008, a WiiWare port known as Magnetica Twist was released which more closely copied the PuzzLoop control scheme while also letting you play as your Mii.


Tropes present in this game:

  • Combos: If matching one group of marbles in another group of same-colored marbles appearing together to fill up the gap, then they too will disappear, multiplying your score in process.
  • No Plot? No Problem!: There's absolutely no way to tell the meaning of anything in the game.
  • Smoke Out: The Vs. mode allows players to obscure each other's vision through deploying smoke clouds onto the rival's screen.


How well does it match the trope?
