In a typical battle royale, the goal is to be the last one standing among a hundred combatants. When one of those combatants is a 300-foot tall radioactive lizard, you're going to need a little more than an UZI to take it down. The next update to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds introduces a crossover with Godzilla vs Kong, with Legendary's giant monsters set to duke it out on the mobile maps starting later this week.
Godzilla is a giant, city-destroying monster that challenges us to ponder the fragility of life and the horrors of mass destruction. A 2014 adaptation is hitting theaters now, which means a movie tie-in game is destined to hit the Play Store. What do we have this time? A brawler? A first-person shooter? A side-scroller crammed with in-app purchases? No, silly. It's a match 3 puzzle game.
Somewhat surprisingly, this was a good decision. Godzilla Smash3 contains more depth than initially meets the eye. The core gameplay may consist of matching three or more orbs of the same color, but the board hovers atop an action-filled background.
