Boxart of Waku Waku Puyo Puyo Dungeon
Waku Waku Puyo Puyo Dungeon is a "roguelike" dungeon-crawler game. It was initially released for the Sega Saturn and was later released on the PlayStation as Waku Puyo Dungeon Ketteiban.
A high-tech amusement park known as Waku Waku Puyo Puyo Land, known for its ever-changing mazes, is awarding people who successfully clear the park attractions a "Great Magic Item." Arle hears of it one day on a walk, and decides to investigate on what it is. Rulue enthusiastically pursues the prize, seeing it as her chance to finally obtain magic. Schezo, lastly, visits the amusement park in order to restore his lost magic power.
Players take control of either Arle Nadja, Rulue, or Schezo Wegey, and attempt to clear several dungeons. Like most roguelikes, the game is entirely turn-based; everything from moving, to attacking, to using an item takes up one turn. At the end of each dungeon lies a recurring Madou Monogatari character that serves as the dungeon's boss.
- The Sega Saturn version was the last Puyo Puyo-related game to be completed before Sega gained the rights to the series. Following its release, Sega was credited in every game that used the Puyo Puyo name or its characters, even if said game was released on competing consoles.
