Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Nintendo パズルコレクション) is a 2003 puzzle video game compilation published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. The game contains remakes or ports of three Nintendo-published puzzle games: Dr. Mario, Yoshi's Cookie, and Panel de Pon. All copies of Nintendo Puzzle Collection were bundled with a GCN-GBA cable to take advantage of the game's ability to download simplified versions of its games to a Game Boy Advance console.

Problems

DirectX Lock Ups

Do to the lack of an EFB Peek Cache on D3D, the game locks up during transitions in Panel De Pon. See issue 6275 and issue 6572. Can be resolved by using OpenGL.

Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-2390T @ 2.7GHz AMD Radeon HD 6450 Very good! 60FPS most of the time except some massive screen, audio does not decode properly and experienced glitched. I even upscaled to 720p and enable 4x anti-aliasing so if you turn off those features you should be to play smoothly. Nosmas
4.0-6070 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 5800 Menu transitions in Panel De Pon are very slow, but Panel De Pon itself, as well as menus for other games, experience no slowdown or error at all. Played with Direct3D. UmbraWitchJeanne
5.0-6229 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-7700K NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Played perfect for me. IceStrike256
