In case you haven’t already seen these things everywhere, Funko Pop now has a match-3 puzzle game on Android and iOS.
Published and developed by N3TWORK in collaboration with Tic Toc Games, Funko Pop! Blitz is a match-3 puzzler that has you matching up lovable characters from a variety of iconic franchises.
If you’ve played any tile-matching game such as Bejeweled or Candy Crush Saga then you know what to expect. Each round puts you on a board with the Funko Pop versions of characters from a specific franchise or piece of media, and you need to swap and swipe between them to match up at least three of the same face. Each character also has their own super move that allows you to power up, blow up the board and earn rewards, with new moves available to unlock from bonus challenges and special events.
Much like the collectible Funko Pop figures, the crossovers in the game are numerous. The initial offering line-up includes Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Back to the Future, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, along with the classic Universal Monsters; DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, Funko’s Fantastik Plastik and Pop! Pets.
The game will also rotate these collaborations out during weekly events, as N3TWORK’s Neil Young (not that one) said: “In collaboration with Tic Toc, we have created an accessible yet endlessly delightful game that blends the puzzle game mechanic with beloved characters from some of the world's most popular entertainment franchises. Each weekly event will introduce new characters from some of the world's most popular properties. Whatever you're a fan of, you're sure to find it in Funko Pop! Blitz.”
