A new match-3 puzzle game based on the Funko Pop! toy range, named Funko Pop! Blitz, is coming to mobile. The game will feature characters from numerous pop culture series, and the press release lists Back to the Future, E.T., Jurassic Park/World, Kung Fu Panda, How To Train Your Dragon, and Shrek as examples.
When the game launches today on iOS and Android, it will come with a Jurassic Park event, where you can unlock characters like Ian Malcolm, John Hammond, Ellie Sattler, and Dennis Nedry–as well as the dinosaurs. New characters will be brought in often, including themed characters for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Once you’ve unlocked a character, you can use their unique Super move to progress through each board. E.T. has a healing move, for example, while Marty McFly can summon Doc’s time-traveling DeLorean to destroy blocks.
If you’ve played another match-3 puzzle game on mobile, you’ll more-or-less know what to expect. But this one has the added benefit of being able to tap into Funko’s enormous reserve of pop-culture figures.
A previous Pop game based on Gears of War, called Gears Pop!, launched in 2019. It was pretty enjoyable, and earned a lot of downloads.
