Even though we have the unfortunate situation that is the Friday the 13th film franchise being left in a state of legal limbo to deal with, fans of Jason Voorhees have at least had something to enjoy in recent memory. Thanks to a seriously bloody video game, one of horror’s greatest icons has been resurrected in an immersive experience, with new maps and scenarios being added on a regular basis.
But, if you require some entertainment on the go, know that Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle may be just what the doctor ordered. In it, “you help horror icon Jason Voorhees stalk and slay campers across 100+ puzzle levels. From the campgrounds of Crystal Lake to the highrises of Manhattan, from supermax prisons to snowy ski resorts, Jason will terrorize victims across the world… and beyond!”

And while we haven’t experienced the cutesy carnage for ourselves, it sounds like the mobile game does a decent job of spanning locations familiar to lovers of the films. Plus, you finally have your chance to brutally slay what appear to be sentient Funko Pop Vinyls. At least, that’s what the victims look like to me.
Thanks to Blue Wizard Digital, the minds behind Slayaway Camp, you’ll also be able to “unlock insane new Jason variants as you puzzle through all-new adventures. Earn, equip, and upgrade a huge host of murder weapons as you pursue your prey! Witness gruesomely funny kill scenes as you obey the ominous orders of your mother’s severed head!”
Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle will see a worldwide release on iOS, Android, and Steam on April 13.
