All Articles: Marvel Puzzle Quest
It’s time to dig into another Friday update for the Xbox Games Store. These four games are now available to download for the Xbox One today:
- Marvel Puzzle Quest brings the superhero-starring match-3/RPG hybrid to the Xbox One for the first time.
- Dad Beat Dads is a four-player brawler that asks if your Dad can beat up somebody else’s Dad. Oh, and the winner gets to claim the loser’s kids.
- Krinkle Krusher is a castle defense game where players have to blast away at giant walking mouths known as Krinkles.
- Bike Mayhem 2 is a side-scrolling stunt game on two wheels. Radical!
More information on all of these games, direct from Microsoft, can be found after the break. (more…)
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Tales From the Borderlands: Episode 5, Life Is Strange: Episode 5, more added to PS Store
There’s something for everyone in this week’s PlayStation Store update.
The biggest new release is definitely Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate for the PS4. Ubisoft’s historial hack and slash series moves to Victorian London in the latest installment and brings with it all the hooliganism you’d expect from such a setting. I wonder if you can make your Assassin shout “Pip Pip!” as they marauder their way through a gang of Templars.
Ubisoft is a busy bee this week, as the publisher will also release Just Dance 2016 for the PS4 and PS3. The latest addition to the publisher’s dance machine includes 42 songs from Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and many others.
On the complete opposite spectrum from teen pop hits is Bandai Namco’s Tales of Zestiria, the latest game in the popular Tales series of action RPGs. Zestiria is the first game in the series to be released for the PS4, but it’ll also be available for the PS3.
Elsewhere, a pair of licensed games were added to the PlayStation Store this week, both of which revolve around puzzles. Marvel Puzzle Quest is a match-3 puzzler for the PS4 and PS3, while Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is an adventure game with a lot of puzzle-solving elements.
Finally this week, two episodic adventures will come to an as Dontnod’s Life Is Strange: Polarized and Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands: The Vault of the Traveler have both been released for the PS4 and PS3.
Well that was fast. An Xbox 360 launch for Marvel Puzzle Quest was announced a little more than a week ago and it looks like its already available on the Xbox Games Store. The match-3 puzzler brings a Marvel makeover to the Puzzle Quest formula and includes classic characters like Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor alongside a “deep RPG leveling” system. Marvel Puzzle Quest is also in the works for the Xbox One.
Also available this week is a pair of Xbox One games…
- Bedlam is based on Christopher Brookmyre’s novel of the name and gives players a history lesson of online gaming’s early days in a first-person perspective.
- Rock N Racing Off Road DX is a top-down off road racer that should stir pleasant memories in anyone who remembers Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road.
More information on all three of these games is available after the break. (more…)
Marvel and D3 Go have announced that Marvel Puzzle Quest will be released for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One before the end of the year.
Marvel Puzzle Quest is a match-3 puzzle game and it’s been available on mobile devices since 2013. While the mobile version is available as a free-to-play title, the console version will carry a $14.99 price tag. Marvel.com has promised that the console version will also include local and online multiplayer:
Players will assemble a squad of three characters with upgradable abilities, choosing from a roster of heroes and villains alike, all to combat a common enemy. With this team-based gameplay comes a new level of strategy and customization, allowing audiences to call upon specific heroes that are best suited for the job and to create an ultimate Marvel dream team as they travel across famous locations and visit familiar faces from the Marvel Universe. For the first time ever in Marvel Puzzle Quest, players will be able to put their squads to the test in both online and local multiplayer.
