Abundante! is an excellent little original puzzle title. The main mechanic reminds me of the great Critter Crunch, but it's not exactly the same. Instead of feeding animals that match up, you're lifting and placing gems of various colors; you line up a certain number of gems together, and they'll...

Having received my copy yesterday, I've only been able to put a few hours into Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes for DS.
