Mine is the most inovative, of course.
Complete with graphics that don't make any sense.

I'm very fond of Alchemy and other puzzle games that on Shockwave.com. Lots of games there seem to use the disapearing puzzle piece feature. I guess that's from Tetris which would make Tetris the most inovative puzzle game that comes to mind.

I can think of plenty of innovative puzzle games, but why is this in my forum if it''s not about puzzle game stories? A thread about puzzle game design should go in the design forum...

I quite liked the fool''s errand. It''s pretty old and if I remember right you solved little puzzles and each one would give you a piece to solving a larger puzzle.

Some puzzles were annoying and obscure, but it is fun for a while. You can get it at www.the-underdogs.org

i would say the most innovative puzzle games i have played have been ''The Incredible Machine'' series.

I would argue that many of the games on Shockwave.com are not innovative at all. A great number of shareware games these days seem to be variations on the "re-arrange items into similar groups so that they disappear" theme - and, taken to it''s logical extreme, those games could all be descendants of Columns.

The Incredible Machine games were good - it''s nice to see that line of games continue with Chain Reaction, available from GarageGames.com. Also available from there is Bridge Construction Set, which I like a lot.

Personally, though, the most innovative puzzle game in recent years that I can think of is Wetrix on the N64. The aim, for those who don''t know, is to place walls on and around a floating island to prevent rain from escaping. That''s a rubbish description; the game itself is complicated but brilliant, especially in two-player mode.

I''ve always loved "Eggerland Mystery" (it''s "Adventures of Lolo" with some variations: less monsters but more and harder levels).
