Friday the 13th fans will absolutely appreciate this mobile game as it remains faithful to the franchise.

Friday The 13th is undeniably one of the most horrifying films in history characterized with extreme level of violence. Interestingly, this game offers a tamer version of Jason Voorhes. With an animation similar to Blue Wizard’s Slayaway Camp, this game features a cartoonized version of the iconic serial killer. Despite the cuteness of its presentation, the game still adapts the killing concept in a true Jason Voorhees fashion.
Although the title sounds like a hardcore horror adventure, Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is actually a tricky physics-based puzzle. The game is more than just hunting and killing victims but a puzzle that requires extreme strategy. Basically, the game prompts you in an isometric puzzle which contains irremovable objects, obstacles and of course, the victims. The goal is to kill all the victims within the puzzle in a brutal Jason Voorhes ways.
What really makes the game more challenging are the limited controls. You cannot directly manipulate Jason’s movements and you can only slide him around the puzzle one direction at a time. The only way to stop Jason from moving is to bump him into an item, walls or the victims. To kill victims, you must slide Jason near them. The victims, however, will sometimes run away and move towards obstacles, allowing you to kill them indirectly. If all the victims are killed, the Final Girl or Final Guy will appear and you must kill them to clear the level.
Interestingly, Final victims will take you to a special killing phase, the Kill Zone. In this combat, you’ll see a moving meter. The goal is to tap the screen and hit the Killzone area for a satisfying killing scene to conclude the level. Failing to hit the Killzone, however, will result to a Miss, allowing the victim to escape.
