Halloween is here, and Puzzles & Survival is taking full advantage of the spooky season to add even more content to a game that already features city and alliance building, survival elements, puzzles, and zombies — what a thematic match. 

The Locust Plague event is bringing swarms of mutant locusts into the game, forcing players to deal with an apocalyptic challenge and save the Earth from a new, dangerous threat. 

Together with their allies, players will need to use every survival skill in their arsenal to defend their sanctuary and resources from the swarms of insects. And, once the defense is done, rally together against their bosses to exterminate the threat once and for all. 

And, a special locust-themed commercial made by the Puzzles & Survival team will be dropping globally for a limited time, so make sure to log in and create an account to collect all of the seasonal content. 

Players will combat the locust threat using Puzzle & Survival’s turn-based, match-three gameplay, where they chain together tiles in order to defeat targeted enemies. And, using different heroes from the diverse roster will let you change your strategy to fit the opponent you are facing or your own preferred playstyle. 

Successfully matching tiles will let you charge your selected hero’s skill gauge, which will let you unleash devastating abilities such as massive damage, stat buffs for your allies, stat debuffs for your enemies, and much more. 

Resources gained from successfully cleared puzzles will let players upgrade their heroes to better face stronger threats. These upgrades will also fortify your sanctuary and strengthen active alliances. 

To celebrate the launch of the Locust Plague event and Puzzles & Survival reaching 30 million global downloads, the devs are giving players some additional supplies. All you need to do is enter the promo code “pnslocust” to receive a care package, which includes 200 diamonds, three 10-min Build, Training, and Research speed up boosts, and 2,000 Antiserum.

If you want to try and survive against the locust swarm, while also dealing with all of the other dangers that litter this post-apocalyptic landscape, you can download Puzzles & Survival for free or check out the game’s official Facebook Fan Page for more details.
