Popular and successful free-to-play puzzle game from developer Genius Sonority is now available on Android and iOS platforms as earlier promised. The game has had a successful run on Nintendo 3DS platforms.
Game Informer reports that the mobile version of Pokemon Shuffle will contain over 150 collectible critters and allows players to integrate with Facebook, letting them connect with friends.
It notes that many of the things that were criticised were "retooled" making the game "more generous" with regards to players using and consuming the in-game currency.
This is Nintendo's first video game that is making its evolution to mobile platforms. Though the company has had previous history of creating companion apps, this will be first porting of a 3DS game.
Also the game is much like other puzzle games like Candy Crush, so players who are new to Pokemon will also get introduced to the ported Nintendo game.
This is not only a strong move from the company, but also a right one. The Pokemon Company has otherwise very rarely released games for other non-Nintendo devices.
