Konami Announces Puzzle Chasers For Facebook

In case you couldn’t get enough of playing Avengers Alliance on Facebook and you need something else to keep you rooted to your seat for summer, Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. has got your back. Although the studio usually deals with video games on home consoles, they plan on extending their reach to Facebook this summer with the release of Puzzle Chasers.

No official release date is known yet, but the game itself sounds like an interesting hybrid of Bejeweled and Carmen Sandiego, which is never a bad thing. Featuring a colorful cast of characters (including a monkey) and a pretty unique idea, Puzzle Chasers just might have enough to make Facebook even more addictive. Read below to learn more about the game’s story and how it’s played.

Someone is stealing the world’s greatest landmarks and it’s up to the player to put the pieces together to save them. Follow Roxy, Blake and their faithful monkey, Austin, in an adventure across the globe. Featuring innovative gameplay and stunning visuals, Story Mode features over a hundred different jigsaw puzzles as well as an addicting, fast-paced Blitz Mode with new puzzles introduced weekly!

In Puzzle Chasers, each level of the game starts with an incomplete puzzle. The player selects an empty space on the puzzle board and is presented with two to five random pieces that they need to pick to fit in the space. If correct, the piece is placed to help complete the picture. There’s a limited amount of time to complete the puzzle and players can follow the story or repeat any puzzle they have completed by looking in their journal. To add to the difficulty, puzzle pieces are randomized so the player will never play the same puzzle twice. The game also gets more difficult the further a player progresses, so various power-ups and unlockables will be available to help complete the journey!

Anybody who wants to learn more about Puzzle Chasers can like its Facebook page and they will be alerted when the game is ready to launch. Also be sure to check back here for any more news regarding Puzzle Chasers and let us know how you feel about Konami‘s foray onto Facebook below!
