For fans of the original comic series, The Adventures of Tintin is receiving its own mobile game, Tintin Match. Based on a popular European comic series, Tintin Match is developed by 5th Planet Games Development ApS and is set to release for free on August 31st on the App Store and Google Play. In combination with Story Mode, the game is similar to Candy Crush, where Tintin will continue his adventure upon completing each puzzle that requires a matching of three types of “candies.” Through this familiar gameplay style, users can enjoy more on the adventures of Tintin each round.
“We’re very excited about this opportunity to introduce Tintin to mobile phone gamers.” – stated Managing Director of Moulinsart, Nick Rodwell. “To let players take on the role of a detective and solve puzzles and mysteries on their own, through a fun and familiar game mechanic, is a great way to expand the Tintin universe. We very much hope that it will be a huge hit among fans of both Tintin and match-3 gamers throughout the world.”
In addition, each round seems to include certain requirements in order to complete. At the top of the screen, there are a number of “candies” as well as a number of steps. Once users fulfill each of these requirements, they will be given a one to three-star ranking upon completion and unlock the next puzzle. In the case users are unable to complete the puzzle with the given requirements, the game will give as many rounds until you can beat it in style. There is also a tutorial at the beginning of the game where Tintin explains how to play the game beforehand.
