Puzzle Quest 3, the hotly anticipated second sequel to 505 Games’s seminal puzzle-RPG, is out now on Android in early access.
Story-wise, the game sees you attempting to save the world of Etheria through the magic of match-three. The Google Play Store description promises “fully realized 3D graphics”, hundreds of quests, and a variety of dungeons, among other things.
There are several different hero types to choose from, including Paladin, Berserker, Shaman, Assassin, and Necromancer. These all come with their own unique abilities and attributes.
As well as a single-player campaign there’s PvP and real-time co-op in alliances with up to three friends.
In case you’ve never played a Puzzle Quest game before, the idea is that you have to match gems to gain mana and action points in order to damage your enemy in combat. It’s a neat mechanic that adds a fighty dimension to the match-three format.
You can download Puzzle Quest 3 on the Google Play Store right now. It’s an early access build, though, so you’ll probably encounter bugs.
