Blue Wizard Digital waited and waited for this day — Friday the 13th — to release its game Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle worldwide on iOS, Android, and Steam.
The game lets players take control of Jason Voorhees and return to his old stomping grounds of Crystal Lake. At the urging of his now-decapitated mother, the hockey-masked murderer takes gruesome revenge on an assortment of hapless campers.
Players control Jason by sliding him around an isometric puzzle level to attack his victims, either directly, with a huge variety of unlockable weapons, or indirectly, by frightening them into environmental hazards like campfires, bear traps, and woodchippers.
Eliminating all the campers triggers a reflex-based confrontation with a “Final Girl” (or Guy).
The puzzles become more intricate as the player progress from Crystal Lake to more exotic locations like Manhattan, supermax prisons, ski resorts, outer space, and even, through a time-travel twist, Victorian London and other eras.
The game is “free to slay,” but players can purchase extra puzzle episodes, new Jason avatars, or exotic weapons (from machetes to golden toilet seats) to dispatch their victims with.
