This was one of the first games I bought way back in 1985. Basically a puzzle game, it sees the player trying to detonate a series of bombs using a stockpile of “sparks”. The sparks passage across each is screen is manipulated by sliding segmented squares of the room, a bit like those sliding picture puzzles games crossed with a bit of pipe mania.

Confuzion was an intriguing and playable game with one fatal flaw: it was just too damn hard. Sure, the first few levels were easy enough, but soon the game throws so much at you and at such a frantic pace, that it is impossible to utilise any tactics, reducing the game to pure random guesswork. It’s a shame because otherwise Confuzion is a technically accomplished game.
