'Evolve' Mobile Companion Game Released: 'Hunters Quest' Is A Free Match 3 App That Unlocks Content In Main Game

Evolve, we need to talk. Look, I'm excited about you. You look fantastic. Left 4 Dead is one of the best multiplayer experiences and I look forward to seeing how you play on that structure. But, aren't you being a little ridiculous? There are a lot of pre-order - sorry, pre-purchase components - that are still confusing to me. You seem like you want to be more than you are.

Which is why we're having this talk. Because Evolve...a Match 3 game? In what world does that make sense? Who signed off on this? Look, I'm sure it's fun and addictive in the way that all Match 3 puzzlers are, but just be a next gen game. That's all you need to do.

Evolve: Hunters Quest is "a Match-3 puzzle combat game that takes players on more than 100 missions set in the Evolve universe." You assume the roles of several of the game's hunters, match colored gems and take out the various monsters around Shear, Evolve's hostile planet.

Because when I think Evolve, I think puzzle game.

The companion app will add to the experience of the PC and console version, as  players can apply their Mastery Points earned in the game to the main Evolve game on any platform. You'll be able to unlock game art and watch replays of their online multiplayer matches from a "strategic top-down view."

That last one is particularly cool, I guess. [Editor's note- fairly certain the main game allows you to see replays in this way as well!] Fine, Evolve. I'll download your silly Match 3 game. Evolve: Hunters Quest is available for iOS, Android, Windows and Amazon smartphones.
