Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is a brand new,
genre-bending title that ups the ante on traditional puzzle games by
incorporating strategy, role-playing elements and a persistent
storyline. Set in the Warlords universe, the game challenges players
to save the land of Etheria from evil Lord Bane as gamers engage in
battles fought by means of competitive, head-to-head
"match-three" style puzzle games in one of three gameplay
modes: Single-player, Instant Action or Multiplayer. Victory will
advance a player's customisable hero, magical arsenal, creature
companions and more—ultimately rewarding gamers at nearly every
turn and deepening their immersion into the richly diverse world.
The game's remarkable mix of classic puzzle gameplay and an abundant
suite of characters, customisations, spells, companions, tameable
monsters and more provides a fresh take on the puzzle genre that
offers endless hours of replayability. Designed specifically for
handheld gaming systems, Puzzle Quest can be enjoyed in long or
short doses, cultivating a casual but deeply satisfying and
compelling gameplay experience.
