I've scoured the interwebs looking for answers on even notification of a port, but my search has amassed no answers.
Anyone else want to chime in on this?
Today we released a free, ad-supported RPG/puzzle hybrid called Puzzle Lords. It's adapted from our ADC2 entry, Relativia, which was a mobile version in which you had to travel to real-world locations to unlock content. We released it a while back and the overwhelming response was that people didn't want to have to physically go anywhere to play the game.
So we revamped it to be a purely local game. The combat system is somewhat like Connect 4. You and your opponent take turns dropping tokens into columns on a grid. There are nine types of tokens (4 mana, 4 gem, and 1 skull). Lining up 3 or more mana tokens gives you mana to cast spells. Gems give you money, and skulls do direct damage. I personally liked Puzzle Quest, but thought the choice of a match-3 game for turn-based combat was a little awkward (the game was wildly popular, though, so what do I know?). Anyway, we went with what we thought was a more naturally turn-based puzzle game at the heart of combat.
The game is very short (only three dungeons, five quests, and one boss), but it's free! It is supported with ads, though. If there is enough demand, we will add more content and a larger world map.
Hopefully it will somewhat satisfy your craving for a Puzzle Quest-like game. If you have comments or suggestions, email us at email@example.com
