Slayaway Camp was a sliding block puzzler themed after the tropes of the slasher horror genre, featuring a masked killer and stylized gore as you figured how out to navigate tight maps. Now the developers are bringing a new horror movie-themed puzzle game to Android (and iOS worldwide, following an US release earlier this year) with Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle.
As you might guess by the title, Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is inspired by the classic movie series, featuring over a hundred puzzles with you in control of the hockey-masked Jason and hunting victims in locations around Camp Crystal Lake and beyond. Mechanically, you move Jason with swipes that slide his hulking blocky frame across the screen, stopping when you hit a wall and deducing the right path to reach all the waiting victims. Different elements change your tactics: scared enemies flee and enable you to change their position, water can drown you if you don't watch your direction, police can shoot you, and so on. Progression through each chapter allows you to unlock new costumes and kill variants for Jason to be used in puzzles.
Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle will be available on Android devices this Friday, April 13th. You can currently download the game for iOS from the US App Store.
