Badman Is Back With A Vita And PlayStation Mobile Puzzle Game

Everyone’s favorite Lord of Destruction is back with a new PlayStation Vita game from Sony’s Japan studio. Yu-Nama: The Puzzle is different from other Badman games since it’s a match three puzzle game. You’ll see familiar monsters like the slimes and lizardmen from the PSP games, but this time they’re on tiles.

Match three monsters in a horizontal line and they will attack the hero invading Badman’s home. Match three monsters in a vertical line and those monster tiles will evolve into a stronger monster on the food chain. Levels also have rocks you can break with a pickaxe.

There are over 100 pixilated heroes from No Heroes Allowed and the other Badman games spread across 10 levels. Sony also added a boss rush mode and extra mode (a hard mode) which unlocks after you complete the game once. Yu-Nama: The Puzzle costs 600 yen ($6) on the PlayStation Store, but you can get it half off for 300 yen ($3) until May 28.

  • Looks interesting to me. Hopefuly NISA or someone will get that onto the store over here, too.

    • Devin Hudson

      If you mean the US store (which is my guess since you mentioned NISA) then it’s already there. I don’t know why the article doesn’t mention it, but the game is available on the US store for $3.

      • Yup! $2.99 under PlayStation Mobile. Totally worth it too – it’s an awesome match-3 game.

      • Oh wow, really? I’m gonna have to get it then!

        Edit: TOTALLY WORTH THE $3 I had to actually pull myself away from it last night in order to sleep, it’s very distracting and interesting. I enjoy that it kept the evolution line somehow.

  • Oh, instant buy if/when EU!

  • just noticed that it is on playstation mobile..
    still don`t get why Sony leave so many countries out.

    • TheExile285

      They aren’t missing much. PSM is extremely meh.

      • benhofb

        Not to mention it is absolutely flooded with shovel-ware… :/

        This and a few other games are totally worth it though. Thankfully, there are some well-made games. It is just a shame that they can be pretty far and few in-between.
