'Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle' Game Coming to Mobile Platforms in 2018

With the success of Gun Media's Friday The 13th: The Game, which was released this past May, we were expecting more games would be developed either for mobile devices or conventional board games and now the former is indeed happening. Blue Wizard Digital is now ready to give Friday The 13th fans a new mobile game in a similar vein as a the widely popular Slayaway Camp with the announcement of Friday The 13th: Killer Puzzle!

Read on below for more details and early looks at the game. This should be an exciting addition to fan's gameplay of Jason Voorhees.

Slayaway​ ​Camp​ ​Devs​ ​Sharpen​ ​Machetes​ ​on​ ​a​ ​Brand​ ​New​ ​”Killer​ ​Puzzle” 

From​ ​the​ ​makers​ ​of​ ​Slayaway​ ​Camp—the​ ​award-winning​ ​“Bloodiest​ ​Puzzle​ ​Game​ ​Ever”—comes​ ​an​ ​even more​ ​frightening​ ​puzzler​ ​starring​ ​one​ ​of​ ​horror’s​ ​most​ ​iconic​ ​killers.​ ​Now​ ​you​ ​can​ ​go​ ​behind​ ​the​ ​hockey mask​ ​of​ ​Jason​ ​Voorhees​ ​on​ ​his​ ​mission​ ​to​ ​murder​ ​unfortunate​ ​campers​ ​at​ ​Crystal​ ​Lake​ ​and​ ​beyond.

Players​ ​control​ ​Jason​ ​by​ ​sliding​ ​him​ ​around​ ​an​ ​isometric​ ​puzzle​ ​level​ ​to​ ​attack​ ​his​ ​victims,​ ​either​ ​directly with​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​weapons,​ ​or​ ​indirectly,​ ​by​ ​frightening​ ​them​ ​into​ ​environmental​ ​hazards​ ​like​ ​campfires, bear​ ​traps,​ ​and​ ​woodchippers.​ ​Gruesome​ ​reflex-based​ ​“Kill​ ​Scenes”​ ​punctuate​ ​the​ ​puzzling​ ​as​ ​you progress​ ​through​ ​multiple​ ​episodes,​ ​from​ ​classic​ ​campgrounds​ ​to​ ​more​ ​exotic​ ​locations​ ​such​ ​as Manhattan,​ ​abandoned​ ​amusement​ ​parks,​ ​supermax​ ​prisons,​ ​beach​ ​resorts,​ ​outer​ ​space​ ​and​ ​more.

“I​ ​loved​ ​the​ ​balance​ ​of​ ​horror​ ​and​ ​humor​ ​the​ ​Blue​ ​Wizard​ ​guys​ ​brought​ ​to​ ​Slayaway​ ​Camp,”​ ​said​ ​Friday the​ ​13th​ ​series​ ​creator​ ​Sean​ ​Cunningham,​ ​“and​ ​I’m​ ​thrilled​ ​to​ ​see​ ​their​ ​take​ ​on​ ​Friday​ ​the​ ​13th.”

“Though​ ​it​ ​might​ ​surprise​ ​PopCap​ ​players,​ ​I’m​ ​a​ ​lifelong​ ​hardcore​ ​horror​ ​fan,”​ ​said​ ​Blue​ ​Wizard​ ​founder Jason​ ​Kapalka.​ ​​ ​“But​ ​it’s​ ​pretty​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​terrifying​ ​game​ ​on​ ​your​ ​phone!​ ​As​ ​with​ ​Plants​ ​vs​ ​Zombies, we’re​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​more​ ​playful,​ ​tongue-in-cheek​ ​approach​ ​than​ ​is​ ​usual​ ​for​ ​Friday​ ​the​ ​13th,​ ​while​ ​still​ ​paying genuine​ ​tribute​ ​to​ ​all​ ​those​ ​classic​ ​films.”

F13:​ ​TPG​ ​will​ ​be​ ​initially​ ​released​ ​on​ ​iPhone​ ​and​ ​Android​ ​devices​ ​as​ ​a​ ​”Free​ ​to​ ​Slay”​ ​title​ ​with​ ​optional purchases.​ ​“We’re​ ​sensitive​ ​to​ ​the​ ​concerns​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​players​ ​have​ ​with​ ​free​ ​to​ ​play​ ​titles,”​ ​said​ ​Kapalka. “We’re​ ​definitely​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​avoid​ ​the​ ​more​ ​obnoxious​ ​money-grabs.​ ​They’ve​ ​promised​ ​to​ ​send​ ​Jason​ ​after us​ ​if​ ​it​ ​sucks.”
