EVENT PRESS: "PowerCore recently debuted PuzzleCore on Android (coming soon for iOS!). PuzzleCore is a new connect-three puzzle game that lets you build teams of characters unlocked from toys. The game opens Clover and Dandyee - two Onigiri Elementals who are indigenous to the world of PuzzleCore. By grabbing the all the gems, you help them battle the evil Gasbag Monsters, activating their superpowers and unlocking more Ongiri team-mates - up to four combatants can fight together on the screen at a time. But here’s the twist, the Onigiri’s are not alone in their epic fight - with PowerCore-enabled toys and cards, you can add new characters to the team and these characters can have their own unique gem-fueled superpowers. Martin Hsu’s Dragon Boy, Jerome Lu’s Hyperactive Monkey, ToyCon UK mascot the Toyconosaurus, warriors from Huck Gee’s Battle Tails and even PowerCore’s president Jia Shen -all these characters and more are able to join the fray and help save the day. Stop by the gallery to unlock exclusive characters for game!"
