Puyo Puyo, Sega’s glob matching competitive puzzle game, is going the Puzzle Quest route with Puyo Puyo Quest. This upcoming iOS game has players match blobs on a grid to defeat returning Puyo Puyo characters and some new ones.
The game layout is actually like the extremely successful smartphone game Puzzle & Dragons, but instead of swapping blobs you link them together. When you connect red blobs you activate red monsters to attack. Linking purple puyos makes purple monsters attack and so forth. Also like Puzzle & Dragons the game has a luck factor since puyos can automatically connect when a new row falls down.
Puyo Puyo Quest is slated for release this spring as a free to play game with additional virtual items available for purchase.
