Puzzle Quest July 2015 - WayForward - for iOS
was bound to happen sooner or later:
Adventure Time now has its own match-3 spin
off puzzle game!
Developed in the Unity game engine by
WayForward and published by D3, players
recruit a band of heroes from the TV show to
fight their way through the Candy, Fire, and
Ice Kingdoms in search of loot.
My contributions are primarily with the
puzzle grid. I developed systems for testing
and evaluating board states, creating unique
board behaviors for status effects and types
of loot, and keeping everything in sync with
the battle system, as well as developing
Unity tools for designers to easily create
custom board layouts. A match-3 game may not
sound that difficult to pull off, but we
added dozens of power ups and special tile
types that made the puzzle combat complex
and really fun.
