On this day (March 20, 2007), Puzzle Quest was first introduced to the world with the launch of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords on Nintendo DS and Sony PSP by D3Publisher (developed by Infinite Interactive). With this launch, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords became the original match-3 RPG™ and with its innovative gameplay and fanfare, the game went on to win numerous awards, including Best Downloadable Game at the Interactive Achievement Awards. For many, the battle to acquire a copy at launch was a challenge due to the popularity and limited quantity but the game finally became available everywhere in both stores and digital release.
Since the launch of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, where players became victorious in their battle to save the Kingdom of Etheria from the evil Lord Bane, new iterations have launched on PC, consoles and handheld devices including, Puzzle Quest Revenge of the Plague Lord, Puzzle Quest Galactrix, and Puzzle Quest 2.
In 2013, Marvel Puzzle Quest was released and has amassed millions of downloads, more than 100 characters from the Marvel Universe, and rose up the App Store and Google Play charts. As of early March 2017, Marvel Puzzle Quest has grossed more than 100 million dollars in sales. Since the launch of Marvel Puzzle Quest, both Adventure Time Puzzle Quest and Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest have been released on the App Store and Google Play delighting fans with fun and imaginative gameplay.
