Fight like Ali and solve puzzles in Cosi’s Muhammad Ali: Puzzle King
Imagine Puzzle Kombat but with Muhammad Ali.
It sure did not take long for the recently departed legend, Muhammad Ali to have a video game dedicated to him as Cosi Productions launches Muhammad Ali: Puzzle King.
Combining match-3 mechanics with boxing, the game may roughly be similar to something like Fight Night and Candy Crush combined, although you only get to play Muhammad Ali. In the game, you’d have to match similar tilesets in different alignments to perform attacks, and combos. The mechanic itself can also be likened to the titular Puzzle Kombat, a spinoff game in the Mortal Kombat franchise, albeit PK does have Tetris instead of a match-3 puzzle.
As part of its initial launch, Authentic Brands Group, the company that gave the go signal for Cosi Productions to create Muhammad Ali: Puzzle King, also states that the proceeds from the game’s first month of release will go towards the Muhammad Ali Center, the non-profit and cultural center dedicated to, you guesses it, Muhammad Ali, in Louisville, Kentucky.
