Puyo puyo Box features 5 different games inside! There is the original Puyo Puyo, the original Puyo Puyo Tsu, Single Player Puyo Puyo, Two Player Puyo Puyo, and Four Player Puyo Puyo.

In 2000, Compile released an interesting little collection for the PSOne, called Puyo Puyo Box. It includes the Mega Drive versions of Puyo Puyo 1 and 2, along with some Pocketstation games and a four player mode (since this was absent from the PSOne version of Puyo Puyo 4.) None of this is really all that exciting, especially considering they could've ported the arcade versions, but the real highlight is the Quest Mode.

The Quest Mode is a pure Puyo Puyo RPG. You don't fight enemies normally - you challenge them to a game of Puyo Puyo. Each battle nets you the usual gold and experience, which in turn can be used to upgrade your stats. Higher strength will inflict more nuisance puyos on your opponent, while higher defense will absorb some of your enemy's attacks. You have to be careful not to equip too much heavy equipment however, as they cause your blobs to fall pretty fast.

The plot is the same "find a bunch of medals" stuff in the Madou Monogatari games, although there's plenty of goofiness abound. For example, Arle doesn't just open doors - she bashes through them, sending the door flying into the stratosphere. Naturally, this mode isn't terribly long, and the dungeons are fairly short and easy, but it's an innovative framework for the Puyo series. I don't see why they couldn't have used better graphics and music for the Quest Mode, especially considering this came out after Puyo Puyo 4 (the battles look/sound like the Puyo 2.) And the random battles can get annoying after awhile. You can run away from most weaker battles, but stronger enemies need to be fought - and since match lasts at least a minute or two, you'd better be in love with Puyo Puyo if you want to stick it through to the end.
