N3TWORK, (most famous for the G.I. Joe debacle), has launched Funko Pop! Blitz for Android and iOS. Published and developed by N3TWORK in collaboration with Tic Toc Games, Funko Pop! Blitz is a match-3 puzzle game featuring the Funko Pop! versions of lovable characters across multiple iconic franchises in unique weekly events. At launch, Funko Pop! Blitz collections will include Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Back to the Future, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, along with the classic Universal Monsters; DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, Funko’s Fantastik Plastik and Pop! Pets; as well as familiar faces from pop culture such as Care Bears, General Mills and Hostess brand mascots, with more exciting collections to come.
You can play as Jeff Goldblum, guys. The future is now.
“Funko Pop! Blitz is the ultimate pop culture mashup game,” said Neil Young, CEO of N3TWORK. “In collaboration with Tic Toc, we have created an accessible yet endlessly delightful game that blends the puzzle game mechanic with beloved characters from some of the world’s most popular entertainment franchises. Each weekly event will introduce new characters from some of the world’s most popular properties. Whatever you’re a fan of, you’re sure to find it in Funko Pop! Blitz.”
In Funko Pop! Blitz, each Funko Pop! character will come with their own unique Super move, to blast the board and power up, earning rewards. These Super moves celebrate an iconic moment from the movie, show, or TV commercial they hail from. E.T.’s healing magic radiates from his glowing finger, Shrek’s Puss in Boots charms with his adorable wide-eyes, and Back to the Future’s Marty McFly sends the Time Machine flying through the puzzle board with tires a-blaze. There will be new, unique Pops with Super moves available for collection with every weekly event, including a festive host of characters to celebrate the upcoming Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas holidays.
“Funko is thrilled to be partnering with N3TWORK on a celebration of pop culture through the exciting match game, Funko Pop! Blitz. We’re excited to offer Funko fans and mobile gamers alike the opportunity to connect with some of their favorite characters and properties in Pop! form,” said Brian Mariotti, Chief Executive Officer of Funko.
Today’s Funko Pop! Blitz launch will kick off with a bang, starting with Jurassic Park as the special event of the week. Players will be able to collect their favorite Jurassic Park characters, including Dr. Ian Malcolm, Dr. John Hammond, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dennis Nedry, and his not-so-playful counterpart, the Dilophosaurus.
