Puzzle games have experienced a resurrection of sorts on the PSP, as plenty of fresh, addictive titles have found their way to Sony's sleek portable unit. One of the most recent is Fading Shadows, a game where you must guide a little ball through the underworld with a magical beam of light. The sphere can even assume new compositions to combat the obstacles you will face; a wooden sphere is relatively weak but also very light (it can float on water), while the metal sphere is heavier and slower, but far more durable. Like with most puzzle games, it's all about timing and strategy, as indicated by this Light Beam trailer. Fading Shadows is scheduled to arrive on store shelves next week, so keep an eye out for it, puzzle fans!
