Out of the blue, in the biggest week of gaming history, Marvel decides to announce there is a Puzzle Quest version of the Dark Reign storyline coming out on iOS and Android this Thursday. I didn’t see this coming, but apparently it’s been available in the Philippines iTunes store for a while now. Puzzle Quest for XBOX and Puzzle Quest 2 for iPad are some of my favorite games. Imagine if your Bejeweled games actually meant something and you could attack a computer playing who is sharing the board. Its rather addicting if I say so myself. Anyways, here’s the description and some photos to hold you over until October 3. Check back then for official release information.
Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign
Assemble a team of Marvel’s biggest super heroes and villains and battle with Puzzle Quest’s trademark match-3 and story-telling gameplay in a game that combines favorite Marvel characters with a deep RPG leveling, player vs. player, character upgrades, and more.
