Review Kubo: A Samurai Quest™

Brandon Girod
Based on a great movie franchise, high production value, refreshing mechanics
Story elements kind of get in the way
Are you looking for your next match-three adventure? Well, you might want to check out Kubo: A Samurai Quest for Android? It’s a match-three game but shies away a bit from some of the conventional mechanics you might find familiar with the genre. It also incorporates Universal Studios’ newest animated movie, Kubo.
While I’ve actually been a bit burnt out on the constant stream of match-three games that all tend to blend together due to just how similar they all play, I have to really give it to Kubo. This game, while it does have all of the familiar mechanics, it brings some new things to the table, too, especially by borrowing from some other great match-three games from PC.
Kubo actually plays out more like a role-playing game where the battle system revolves around matching three items. In this way, you should think about the game more like 100000000 than your traditional match-three game. So what you’ll do is match things like swords in order to attack and drain your opponent’s life before they drain yours. You can match more than three of the same icons to perform special moves and you can even replenish your health by matching hearts. You’ll also level up your characters that you’ll find while playing the game. You’ll rely on building up your characters in order to progress.
Given the freshness that Kubo: A Samurai Quest creates, I found myself pretty high on the game. There are enough interesting new mechanics to separate this game from other match-threes and the popular franchise combined with the high production value really bring it all home.
