puzzlePunch! is the brain child of Spellgun Studios and is a puzzle/fighter hybrid, which plays like a cross between Street Fighter, and Bejeweled. It’s free, so if you’re a fan of either genre it’s well worth checking out.
The gameplay is addictively simple: connect matching tiles in order to move, punch, kick, shoot, and mount the super attacks that will pummel your opponent into submission. Compete head-to-head in online play, Bluetooth local play, or against the AI. The more you play, the more new power-ups you’ll unlock.
Extra power-ups, characters, etc. are available as in-app purchases, but there’s enough included in the free version to make it an addictive little timewaster all on its own. (Due to App Store limitations, we are unable to provide press free access to the iAPs, but we can give you more info about what the iAPs include to help flesh out your coverage. If you need more details, just holler.)
puzzlePunch! is the work of Spellgun Studios, a new mobile-oriented game studio with offices in San Francisco and Shanghai.
