Puzzle Pets Adventure is a strategic puzzle game to use pets to go for battle to challenge other players all over the world. Play and battle with friends now!
As I was working on re-building my portfolio, I decided to drop by the Puzzle Pets Adventure (PPA) FB app page…only to find this very tragic message:
This was a client-based project and though I personally prefer working on original IPs, being Puzzle Pets Adventure’s producer taught me a lot of things about the casual game development industry. In fact, I wouldn’t have been able to finish my PhD dissertation (which was about Facebook gaming women) in record time had I not been given this project.
For one thing, it introduced me to the world of Facebook games. For another thing, it was my first time to play match-3. In order to make sure that we delivered good gameplay, I had played as many match-3 games as I could. By the time the first playable prototype was released, I had become addicted to Puzzle Quest, our peg, and all other games like it.
Heck, I was addicted to Puzzle Pets Adventure! It was a simple pet-catching game where the battle happens on a match-3 board. Think Pokemon meets Bejewelled Blitz.
Before the Candy Crush craze swept my friends and officemates, I would spend all morning and all night testing our PPA builds. Then again, I do that with all the games I handled. It’s just that I seemed to have enjoyed testing and deploying PPA more than any other game I have ever handled. I really do wish to work on more projects like this in the future.
