Oh my Glob! Adventure Time Puzzle Quest is available for iOS and Android

Adventure Time! C’mon, grab your phone!

The latest addition to the Puzzle Quest family of match-3 RPGs is based on Cartoon Network’s extraordinary Adventure Time. The game, available today for iOS and Android, was developed by D3 Go!, which also brought Marvel Puzzle Quest.

Adventure Time follows Finn the human and his best friend, Jake the magical dog, in their adventures throughout the psychedelic Land of Ooo. Ostensibly a children’s show, it’s gathered a substantial adult following as well because of its endlessly inventive design, the rich, slow-played backstory of its post-post-apocalyptic world (set 1,000 years after a catastrophic nuclear war) and the surprising emotional depth it can achieve (Ice King gradually goes from a one-note parody of cartoon villains to one of the most tragic characters on television).

If you’ve played previous Puzzle Quest games, you know what to expect. Like many RPGs, you assemble a party of three heroes (collected through gameplay from a variety of AT characters like Finn, Jake, Marceline, and BMO) and undertake quests, which comprise a series of turn-based battles. The actual mechanical meat is standard match-3 fare (Candy Crush being the most iconic genre exemplar), wherein you swap colorful tiles around to form linear sets of three or more to damage your opponents. Each character is associated with a particular color of tile, which charge up their special attacks when matched. The enemies do not directly manipulate the board like you do, but instead create negative effects like flames that damage your party until cleared.

Levels are filled with various collectible rewards such a from matching chests and keys that appear on the board, or loot bags that drop from defeated enemies, all of which must be matched in order to be gathered. When you make it through a given stage, the heroes earn experience points to grow more powerful and learn new abilities. You are also rewarded with crafting ingredients that can be combined to create things like healing potions or ability-boosting trinkets.

The game has two currencies, Magic Dust and Hero Coins, which can be used to unlock additional heroes. You only have a limited number of roster spots for your team, but more can be unlocked by spending Hero Coins. As is standard for similar releases, the game is free to download, but offers in-app purchases.

If you’re a fan of the show and need a new, relatively mindless, one-finger game to fill your commute, this seems like a no-brainer to download, given the price. Have fun punching buns!

We've come to the end of 2023, and after a year of gigantic, highly anticipated releases and delightful surprises in the video game world, we've come to the expected conclusion. Some of the biggest games of the last few years, like Baldur's Gate 3 and Alan Wake 2, battled it out for the top prize amid a varied string of announcements Thursday night, with Baldur's Gate 3 eventually emerging with six wins, including Game of the Year and Best Performance for Neil Newbon. Alan Wake 2, which had the same number of nominations as Baldur's Gate 3, received three awards and stole the show with the Herald of Darkness live performance. Elsewhere, Cocoon and Sea of Stars scored in the indie categories, while Forza Motorsport snuck in with two wins.

However, the main focus of The Game Awards is the announcements, which set the stage for the next year of releases. Not only did we get details on Hideo Kojima's Xbox game, but we also got reveals for Monster Hunter Wild, God of War DLC, Arkane Lyon's new game, and so much more.

Dead by Daylight goes single-player with The Casting of Frank Stone

Behaviour Interactive revealed The Casting of Frank Stone, a new narrative-focused single-player horror title set in the Dead by Daylight universe, at The Game Awards 2023.

Dead by Daylight has stayed relevant in the competitive landscape of live-service multiplayer titles in no small part due to the rollout of horror films' most iconic characters, as well as its addicting gameplay. For as popular as this asymmetrical game centered around four survivors attempting to avoid and escape one powerful killer --such as Chucky, Ghostface, and even Nic Cage -- has become, a strong narrative has never been a key ingredient in its success. We already knew the universe would be expanded with a Blumhouse-produced film adaptation, however, we now know that players looking to fully engross themselves in a new original story in that universe will finally get that chance.
