China’s Lu Bu Is Badass… Even In A Puzzle Game

By Eugene . January 1, 2014 . 1:00pm



He may have been dead for a good long while now but Lu Bu’s reputation (real or imagined) continues to precede him. In the latest way this badass of China’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms era is kicking other people’s ass and taking names, he’s in developer Cygame’s latest puzzle game Three Kingdoms: Puzzle Wars.



Yes, it’s a poorly concealed Puzzle & Dragon clone, mechanics, evolutions and all, but if you’ve grown tired of hitting things in the head with Batman or prefer your Chinese history to be as out-of-this-world as Sengoku Basara (which probably actually wins that fight), then this is probably the game for you.


Three Kingdoms: Puzzle Wars is out for iOS and will be out for Android in the near future.

  • ShinTekk

    Is this a collab with Dynasty Warriors? Because Lu Bu looks really similar to the Lu Bu of DW. ._.

    • Chogokin

      This game looks shamelessly unoriginal, so I doubt they care about the character design similarities.

    • Na. He’s portrayed like that in lots of medias. Lu Bu as a brute in black and red is a common thing.

      Anyway, barely anyone is going to care for this “game”. Calling it. Not saying it deserves it or something, it’s just (very) likely that I’m telling the truth. But… yeah. In fact, to be honest, this looks boring~ l_l

    • J_Joestar

      well in the end it is still loosely based on the same character so they can only deviate so much without making a completely different character with just his name tacked on.

  • SlickRoach

    From reading the title alone I thought this would be a collab with P&D but poorly conceived is right.

  • Masa

    Why is the post titled Lu Bu? I was expecting too see just him, saw all the characters in the trailer, a few even more times than Lu Bu lol.

    • ToshiChan

      cause it’s mother fucking Lu Bu

  • PreyMantis

    Well, that sucks… There’s no way beating this game with Lu Bu around…

  • Servant BerserCAR

    “Can anybody provide me with a decent puzzle?!”

    • Testsubject909

      RUN! IT’S LU BU!

      • J_Joestar

        DO NOT PURSUE!

  • CirnoLakes

    What is this misrepresentation?
    Everyone knows that Lu Bu is a loli.

  • Yan Zhao

    I love how super hype the announcer was in a trailer for a puzzle game, lol.

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    That Liu Bei design looks quite similar to his DW7 design.

    I think I saw BROskandar’s bro in there.
